Dear Forum Friends,
Has anyone ever called you “so serious”? I used to hear it all the time. It was like fingernails on the chalkboard to me. I guess I’m still pretty serious but I do let loose for just a little while as the song suggests.
This past winter I upgraded to the BIAB UltraPack and got some great Dixieland RealTracks. How can you not smile listening to that kind of music? So enjoy and find your inner-child.
Here are the wonderful RT (thanks PG).

Hi!

It's been a while since we heard this genre. What a nice refresher! We're still smiling! Your vocal is terrific on this. Also loved the message in the lyric. I'm (Alan) serious enough to take carer of my responsibilities. After that ... I just try to have fun.

A fun and and entertaining listen. Thanks!

Alan & Di

PS: loved the background laughing near the end!

Fun listen! We'v had a blast playing around with those RT's.

You put them to good use supporting the vocal. Wrapped it
up in a nice mix also.

Hi SD,

a fun listen. Like all those little trifles you worked into your mix. I'm sure it was also fun making it.

Charlie,
Thanks. Glad you liked it.

Al & Di,
Thanks. This is my second song in the Dixieland genre. It's so much fun.

J&B,
Thanks. The RTs are so much better than the equivalent midi patches.

Guenter,
Thanks. The sound effects were really fun.

Greg,
Glad you liked it.

Robert,
Thanks. It was really fun doing this one.

Alyn,
Glad you liked it. Thanks for listening.


Josie,
Thanks for your comments. I took the Berklee Music Production course a while back and learned a lot. I guess it's helping.
Take care.

Hi SD,

Very nice angle for a song, very enjoyable by the way.
About the 'serious' part.... we both have been called "too serious" back in our days, but we've loosened up for many years now!
Song is very well done.

Regards,
R & AM

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.
