HI David,

Glad you enjoyed them. We do have a lot of fun with our music. As I mentioned, her health precludes her from doing much singing these days. Thanks for the kind words!

Alan

Hey Kenny,

We both smiled big-time when we read your comments. And yes, Di is fantastic (pardon the biased opinion). Thanks for the well wishes for her.

You mentioned the harmony., Here's a link too what we think is our best harmony. I'm not a good harminy singer (lead singing, as much!). But this one just fell into place. Thanks again.

Deryk states my sentiments quite well. You and Di were at the top of my list of User Forum artists I watched for posts from the very beginning of my time here on the forum. I watched posts on the forum for 8-9 months before jumping in to comment and really enjoyed how finished your songs were and the professional quality of the writes and production.

Wishing the best for you and Di. Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories with us.

Charlie

Hi Charlie,

Aw ... thanks so much. You put a smile on a couple of old faces! (Mine needs all the help oy can get!). You have no idea how much we appreciate those wonderful comments. Right now, Di needs all the encouragement she can get and this was a big boost for her. And we always enjoy hearing your posts, too. There's a lot of talent on these boards and you're always among our favorite listens.

Again, many thanks! Glad you enjoyed the videos.

Alan (Di, too!)

Hi Alan,

We must have missed this one (we've been kinda busy the last couple of months).
It's great to see you guys live in these 3 videos.
You're doing a fabulous Willie Nelson performance smile and we love Di's voice too!
We're very sorry to hear that she is getting worse.
Our sympathies are with you both.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie! We enjoyed those days very much. If DI's health ever gets better, we'll do so more of it.

As far as the Willie nelson impression, I did that quite a bit back when i was playing regularly in the band. It kind of comes naturally to me. Glad you enjoyed the videos - thanks for letting us know!

Alan & Di

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
