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

This patch includes some RealTracks audio updates we have made since the release of Band-in-a-Box 2018. 2018 users should be sure to download the latest Band-in-a-Box 2018 update patch (519), as that patch includes the bulk of the fixes for RealTracks released with 2018. This is a larger download than typical because it updates the Vocal Oohs and Aahs RealTracks audio files. There is more information and Audiophile patches available here.

Summary of RealTracks Audio updates:

- Bass, Acoustic, AmericanaSlow128Byron Sw 040
- Bass, Acoustic, RockabillySwingByron Sw 190
- Bass, Acoustic, BluesyPopByron Ev 100

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.

Fixed: Band-in-a-Box should show message if the latest VJT application is not installed when the user tries to render videos.
Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.
Fixed: Rendering audio while there is a region of bars highlighted in the chord sheet might cause a crash.
Fixed: Saving a MIDI file would fail unless saving as type 1.
Fixed: Some 12-key RealTracks were incorrectly set to allow transposition.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog needed some hints.
Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog was missing the new Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: The VJT application should print out its version number in log files.
