I understand a loop of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" played for about twelve hours before the battery drained.

I love this photo so much I've made it my desktop's background screenshot.

What a driving trip this will be as Starman cruises until eternity.

Thanx Jim. I have a NASA picture theme and this fits in perfectly!

He'll probably eventually pass a Starbucks. But out there, it won't be a coffee shop, it will be an inter-galactic currency exchange store. wink

Amazing how well fantasy can emulate the look of reality, isn't it. Difficult to believe that movie scene was created more than thirty five years ago.

I didn't know the "Don't Panic" displayed on the Telsa dashboard video screen was a nod to the television show Dr. Who until I read it.

There is also a miniature laser disc that has the complete Isaac Asmov Foundation trilogy imprinted on the disc along with pictorial diagrams of how to make the laser disc playback machine.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
