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
Dani

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, Bud & Janice !


Thank you so much for taking the time
to instruct me ! I take it GA = Georgia !
Have not been there yet ! My limited
travels in the US have mostly been
to New York, Seattle, Tacoma, Bellingham, Boise, Albaquerque,
and Santa Fé (where I even got to raft
down el Rio Grande !! Oh Boy !!!)

Cheers

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

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Welcome to the Team David!

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
