Okay, here’s the last word from me for a while. I have truly enjoyed participating on this forum, and have learned a thing or two about the production side of the music. Failed at learning ME however (smile). I write these songs, because as good as the professional writers are today, they don’t always write for me and my experiences and emotions in a way in which I can relate. So, I decided I’d just write for myself. Since Christmas I have written five songs and I cannot tell all of you how much I appreciate your input and kind words. I don’t just write for the accolades, although musicians do love that immediate gratification from audiences and peers. I write for the love of the music. With that here is the last song that I intend to post for a while. Going to spend time trying to listen to all of your songs and concentrate on other projects (I’m also writing a screenplay). So, with that here's my little song. It's a short one.


BALFRED Style: Can’t find a better band
RB 742 – Acoustic Piano – Miles Black
RB732 – Acoustic Bass – Neil Swainson
RB 937 – Guitar – Oliver Gannon
RB49- Alto Sax – P J Perry

WITHOUT YOU THERE IS NO SPRING
Did I misunderstand?
Did I overstate our plans?
When you said that you were leaving,
Were my eyes closed, were my ears deceiving?

Now the seasons grow somewhat shorter
And my heart can find no songs to sing
Too soon, each year, I greet December
Because without you, there is no spring.

Carolyne,

I've enjoyed every song you posted here. This one especially, because it may take a while before hearing another pearl of your singing voice. This is again a great write, production and performance.
Glad you keep on following us here.
Wish you a lot of fun en succes with your writing, let us know how it goes when you comment, from time to time. Will listen from time to time to your songs on deezer or soundcloud.
Greetings
Fred

Hi Carolyne

Your name always pops out at me when I see it in the User Showcase.

I always know that something a bit extraordinarily special will come along.

This song is no exception.

Wishing you all the best for your current endeavors, but more than that, looking forward to what you come back with next - you will be back, won't you?

Best to you and don't stay away too long

In the meantime, peel me a grape

Trevor

Good song... You do the vocal jazz so well. There are none better, that I can recall, here on this forum.

I enjoyed working with you on the song a few weeks back.... I understand you have other things to do but don't be a complete stranger around here.

I enjoyed your time here sharing your talent, skills and graciousness. You are exiting with a bang and leaving us wanting more.

Wouldn't disappoint me any for an encore......

Good luck with your screenplay. That's something I've always desired to do. Even purchased the "Screenplay for dummies" book once.

Enjoyed the song.

Charlie

Another beauty neighbor!! Please stay in touch and post a new one now and then. You are a unique and wonderful contribution to the forum. I too am a huge film fan. I have had ideas for screenplays but never gotten to work on it. Take care. Greg

Always enjoy hearing your posts. You just ooze it right from the core girl. Too bad I'm so far away, I'd love to see your live show.

Good luck with your screenplay!

Enjoy listening to your phrasing on this. You have a nice sense of timing. Good luck with your screenplay. Perhaps you'll continue posting a song every now and then, I hope!

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.
