Hi All,

On the verge of 2016 we are posting our last song of this year ;-)



It's a collaboration with South African singer-songwriter Paddy Gobel.
We had a BIAB funky instrumental project lying around which wasn't going anywhere vocalwise, so we decided to send it to Paddy.
He came up with an entirely different singing melody than we initially had in mind. The same goes for the song's theme... his granddaughter.
Anne-Marie created the video.

Hope you like it. Best wishes!

Rob & Anne-Marie

An interesting mixture of diversity between music, subject and lyrics. It all meshed well together and worked beautifully. The video helped tie everything together. Very professional at every level

Good song and good lyrics and an absolute adorable granddaughter.

You embedded the video, nice.

Neat idea and a very creative production. The mix is spot on with the lead vocal exactly where it belongs. Those harmonies are pro-fessional!

Happy New Year!

Hi there R & A-M.

What a super way to finish off the year.

Loved it all the way through, especially the sax solo with Matilda's overdubs - that was a nice touch.

Excellent mix and production, as usual.

Have a good 2016.

ROG.

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie,

great collab.
I'd like to know, if the voice overdubs and photos
are original Matilda (I see different faces).
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

nice tune. You 've got a great voice, Rob.
I always have instrumental projects that go nowhere with lyrics;
this is one of the reasons why I play the guitar as melody.

good video.

Happy 2016

It would be very hard to add anything to Charlie's response other than say we agree with every word he wrote.

You two had an incredible run this year with the frequent displays of your wonderful talent.

We look forward to many more in 2016.

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.

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.
