Reasonable comments, Pat. Some forums are like that, but fortunately people are more sensible and moderate on this forum. As Donny says, people leave their egos at the door. It's a good thing, and makes this forum stand out. Regardless, your points are valid. Some folk prefer brevity.

Dr. Demento had a syndicated radio show that only featured novelty songs. "Weird" Al Yankovic received his start on the radio show. +++ Spike Jones +++ was a famous band leader that made a living creating novelty songs. Ray Stevens made many comical songs In other words, I think you have a great idea Pat. Lots of material to choose from.

In RB First, maybe try the Make All BB tracks regular tracks option (right-click - Track option) When they change, they will not have Blue track names anymore, if they did. Then it behaves like RB instead of BiaB. Some RB functions only happen on regular RB tracks, as I mentioned; the Blue BiaB tracks continue to try to emulate a more BiaB behavior. If you opened a BiaB file in RB, the tracks may be acting like BiaB tracks and not as expected like with other RB files. After changing them to

In my experience Access Denied messages (for end users) are almost always permissions related (99% +). However, before assuming it is a PGMusic programming issue, you need to consider whether you've installed/ran *anything* else since the last PGMusic install. I know I can write an app that, if you run or install it, I could change your permissions settings on various drives/folders. Rarely necessary, but whether it happens or not is left up to the programmer's discretion. Even if the program

+1 But also an idea I was bragging about several month back... Possibility of loading RT/RD, the ones in the mixer directly to RAM. As of now, each re-generation goes to source. Could be very beneficial to folks that have 16gb or more RAM.

Jump to new posts Re: GLITCHES I cannot figure out by Jim Fogle @ Today at 02:47 PM

When something strange like that happens to me I start a new song project and copy the chords from old project to new project. If the program continues to act up as soon as you create a new song project then the settings are likely corrupted and need to be reset. The third (3rd) selection in the "Options" menu is "Return to Factory Settings ...". When that is selected another window opens (see the top screen shot below). I would remove the check mark and select the second

Excellent idea. I always end up dropping back into the chord chart window because muting and soloing is so unergonomic within the Stylepicker ‘mixer’.

I am not even sure PG Music even understand the problem and what that can mean to the users When they say "The DS al coda sign is there, it's just buried in the fakesheet of the 3x repeat" suggests to me that they don't see it as a problem. This problem has been around since the fakesheet mode was introduced in 2004 (I think). They can build a new 64 bit application, develop amazing realtracks, write a brand new VST DAW plugin, but suggest Repeats, codas, and endings are difficult

Dave, thanks for advice, Mandola 3148 played from the demo, but not for only a few chords played in my used songfile. Solution: 'Force track to simple arrangement' in Track Settings was active; switching that off EUREKA ! Maybe a fix for that is somehow possible? It's kind of confusing ...

Sontradr buys Big Sync Music I went to BSM's website and saw this "Our creative team know artists that don’t even exist yet. Brief them today and see what gems they can uncover." That doesn't immediately inspire a lot of confidence in the acquired company Their website is an assault on the senses but they have a helluva client list. FWIW, etc. Bud

I have used downthemall (down them all) to download all files on a page at once in support of my old time radio (OTR) hobby. The program is no longer supported so I need an equivalent app. It needs to be compatible with Windows 10 running Chrome. TIA.
