John,

Very nicely put together video and heartfelt song tribute to the fallen heroes from your town.

Nice mix and vocal too. You didn't mention what tracks you used but they sound good.

John,

This was/is a terrible tragedy for very brave firefighters.

Your music would be loved by them all.

We live in in Northern Calif. back in the sticks. Just a matter
of time before we are hit. Live and Dread every summer for about 6 months.

This is a great honor you have bestowed upon these folks and their families.

Thanks for your efforts and hard work, sharing with us all.

Hi John,

I agree with everything that's been said. This was a pleasure to listen to and to watch. It's a wonderful tribute and a very polished presentation.

All the best,
Noel

John,
A wonderful tribute for those 19 heroes. I hope each one of their family members hears your beautiful song and treasures it forever.
This is why we write, sing, record, and publish our music. To be able to do something special for people. To maybe make things a little bit better somehow. We should all take inspiration from your work.
Thanks so much for sharing.
Mike

Floyd Jane: Thanks for your comments. I sure appreciate it.

seeker: Thanks for listening. Yes, it makes you nervous to live in the dry west. We had two fires this year: one about 6 miles from our house and the Yarnell Hill fire about 35 miles away where the Granite Mountain Hotshots died.

Noel: I appreciate you listening. I always enjoy your songs.

boehm: Thanks. Some day I hope to be as inventive as you.

SpaceDog. Yes, I hope the families and other firefighters find something for them in the song.

John

Excellent tribute and song. Fire fighters and police are the 2 most under recognized jobs, but without both the world would be chaos. Thanks for sharing!

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
