Richmac...

when I saw you had posted a Christmas song, I listened half expecting to hear lyrics containing the line "TUI Turtledoves..." LOL

(People who haven't been here for long won't know what the heck I'm talking about, but I think you probably do...)
wink

I always enjoy Christmas music, especially when it is original music created by my friends! It's been a while since you've posted, so it's good hearing from you again! (oh.. and an early "Merry Christmas" to you and your family!)

Hi Rich,

Enjoyable listen.

Thanks Mike for the listen and Christmas greetings. Hope you have a good one.

Thanks Charlie. Best wishes to you.

Thanks Pat. I had to restrain myself from putting Tui's in there somewhere. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Thanks Guenter. Yes nice time. Beginning of summer. Snowy Christmas greetings to you.

Hi Joanne. Merry Christmas! When people ask where
I'm going for Christmas i think to myself home cause it's the best place i know.

Hi Rob. Thanks. Yes this is my cheerful Christmas offering. The Christmas song i wrote first (may post it later) was so gothic and morbid i had to write this one to cheer my wife up. Best Christmas wishes to you and Anne-Marie.

Hi Rich ...

Good top hear a new one from you. We've been in and out quite a bit lately, too. Mostly health-related issues.

Nice, simple but very enjoyable Christmas tune. You did a real nice job on this. We totally enjoyed our listen. Best to you ...

Merry Christmas and may God bless you too Rich.

What a cleverly written off the beaten path Christmas song. And the arrangement with that banjo was perfect.

Much enjoyed!

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.
