Wow! That is powerful and must have
been difficult to experience the
production of it. Very touching and
an amazing vid.
Rest in peace.

Fred,

This is truly lovely.

The performance and production and mix are excellent.
But, much like Tom's song (Who I Once Was), the message here is so very much more important that talking about that other stuff.. seems so very unimportant, insignificant.

A wonderful, wonderful tribute - filled with love.

You brought a tear to my eye.
That has to be a hard thing to share. But I'm glad you did.

Truly lovely.

floyd

Lovely, Meditative, melancholy, vivid (I did not watch the video).

Wonderfully mixed with depth of sound and mood.

much enjoyed!

Josie, Gofby, Greg, Janice, Bud, Tom, Rec, Floyd, Gruverider, Slava, Herb, Trevor, Charlie, Robert, Richard,Guenter, Rob, Anne Marie and Josie,

You are all lovely people!
This forum has some fine musicians, composers. But what makes it really special is the emphatic abilities of you all!
You go above and beyond your role as audience, musician, sounding board. I thank you all for your kind comments.

Yes, I had a hard time writing this song and putting together this video, but I felt it had to be done, especially to those left behind.

Thank you all, moving on!

Fred

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

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.
