I've been recovering from a mild stroke and my guitar playing ability is significantly diminished ... might return, might not. Also, we've been dealing with the death of our oldest son and several other issues. So, we've been away for quite some time.

I am playing nothing on this song ... all BIAB tracks. I felt the need to compose something and get a new song posted and this is what I came up with. You can applaud Brent Mason for the guitar work. I take credit only for the concept and arrangement. Hope you like it.

Di sends her best with love and hugs to all. She's in the middle of a major medical issue, also.

We've missed you guys a bunch! Here's the link:

Hi Al and Di,

Good to see and hear from you again, even if it's just now and then. You've been in our minds though, during your absence.
The music is beautiful.
We hope you'll both recover soon.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Hi guys. Sorry for all of your struggles. Keep playin' that guitar Al. People can accomplish incredible recoveries. In the meantime, Brent is a great substitute. He's my favorite "in the box" guitarist. Best to both of you. You guys are a joy on the forum. Keep in touch. Take care. Greg

Best to you both.

Hope you feel better soon and find peace with all that's going on.

In the meanwhile, very lovely track - very expressive and sweet listening, and you do use Brent Mason's playing to great advantage!

Greg said it so nicely. Couldn't phrase it better.
Very enjoyable listen.

Everything sounds great to us. Sometimes in the hands of talent it is
made so obvious how tremendous RT's are. Pleasant listen indeed.

Best to both of you. Stick around...it could be good for your soul.

Y'all are in our thoughts.

Brent Mason. What a player.

I'm sorry to hear of your struggles and health issues. Sending prayers to both you and Di.

This sounds so good. Like the studio musicians sat down and cut the song. Excellent job:)

Hi Everyone ...

A big thanks to all who have come by and left those really nice words. I'm giving a group thank you ... hope that's. Typing is a bit of a challenge right now.

Appreciate everyone's kind thoughts and well-wishes. Getting better all the time!

Alan (& Di)

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac Build 315 Update Available!

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
