Hi, Frank !

I am very glad that you liked this
old autumn/winter tune of mine
written back in 1990-92. Back then
I wrote some 16 songs for a CD and this
was one of them !:))

Cheers
Dani

You are probably situated somewhere

Yes Dani I am in upper Western New York State very close to Lake Ontario. The Rochester NY region that I am in is the snow capitol of New York State! Lots of skiing and skating here. Ice hockey is very big here. Although most of it is played indoors we just had a 10-day outdoor hockey event. I watched it on television, as watching hockey in –15C (5F) is not my idea of having fun.

Really really nice. It all works. Mesmerizing. Janice and I live in a forest and seasonal changes are a major part of our lives. I wish I could express them as you do in this lovely song. Thank you.

Hi Dani,

This is a very beautiful song! Everything about it is pristine. Nice chord arrangement and the mix of the instruments is perfect. And we loved the vocal, too. Congratulations on a very nice song!!!!

I (Al) lived in Germany in the 1970's and 1980's (12 years) but never made it to Finland. The farthest north I got was Denmark.

Again, great song! Wishing you a very wonderful new year!

Al & Di

Hi, Al & Di !:))

I am glad you liked
my little wintry tune !:))
The Autumns up here used
to be like this but lately
they have not been quite
the same anymore !:))

I cannot recall having been
down to Germany myself, it is
a trip I still would like to do,
maybe to hear Barbara Dennerlein
play Hammond B3 !!!:))

Cheers

We are in GA USA and we have somewhat cold winters (our idea of a cold day is 40 degrees F), warm springs, hot summers and cool falls. All with great changes in flora and fauna. Pretty leaf changes and different migratory birds in the summer and winter. Not too bad at all. And although we are 68 and 56 we spend most of our time hiking, mountain biking and kayaking. Other than with music we pretty much stay outside!

Hi Dani!

That was really nice! Some unexpected chord changes at the end caught me by surprise - very pleasantly. You're becoming a Real RealTracks master.

Hi, Dean my good friend !:))

Thank you for your warm comment !:))
I must admit that these realtracks
are a real treat !:)) I am not mastering
the audiophile yet (and probably never will
before the next update) but I think
I´m learning something new all the time !
I am completely taken by all these magnificient
realtrack styles which gives one so many
different options to start writing a song ?

Cheers
Dani

Hi SD !:))

I am truly glad you liked this little wintry tune
of mine ! We used to live by the seaside and
when the summer was over all boats had to be
pulled out of the sea. I had built one of these shelters
for my boat myself. They had to be well packed in
as the winters can be very, very cold up here even
down at Helsinki level ! Helsinki is on the same
level as Anchorage in Alaska, so no wonder in itself ?

Can recall temps down to
- 32 C but that was long ago and such temps have
not been measured around for a long time. As I said
earlier it is +4 C outside for the moment and it will
probably drop to - 2 during this week !:))

Cheers
Dani

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.

New Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Window in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.

See this new feature in action when you jump to the "Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Fretboard" topic in our 2020 New Features video: Click here...
