I wish all a good day as we remember those who died that we might live in the greatest, most free country, ever, in the entire history of mankind.

This is a song I wrote and recorded shortly after having gotten BiaB for the very first time.

I posted this simply as a salute to the men and women who are in this forum and have spent a portion of their lives in the armed service of this country.

SOMETHING TO DIE FOR

Thank you for your service.... Semper Fi!!!

Really great work Herb! Really well developed and well written story. Pretty heavy bridge-kind of intense for the feelgood mood of the song. A pleasure to listen to this! Take care. Greg

I gave listen.
Performed well and your voice easily fits the country genre.
I sense the sincerity with your tribute.
Well done.

Just curious, since you said 'Semper Fi'....were you a Marine also?

Back to topic....

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
