Ian was an accomplished songwriter and frequent contributor to these forums. He slipped in the shower and died instantly.

R.I.P. Ian.

Thanks for listening and, especially, commenting. I often cite you as an example of how music should be interpreted and sung. You're a natural, Scotty.

Yes, these forums were silenced at the news of Ian's death.

Always a good listen, Don. I remember Ian. He was still here when I first got here... sad.

This a great tribute to Ian. Your choice in RTs and mix is super.

I miss Ian a lot. I used to collaborate with him quite frequently and because to his hearing loss problem he ran all of his songs bye me prior to posting. Plus we were both avid hockey fans, he the Ottawa Senators and me the Buffalo Sabres. Off course they were arch enemies on the ice. We were going to Ottawa to meet him, he was going to be our guide, but unfortunately he pass just before we could arrange everything.

Thanx for sharing this and bringing back some super and sad memories of my friend Ian.

Yes, a very sad story. But this is a good tune for a heart felt tribute.

Sonny, Floyd, Mario, David,

You can't imagine how I needed your encouragement and support.

You have made me want to 'Barney Fife' up my sagging skivvies and jump back into my music.

A sincere thank you.

Donny

Nice song! Very well conceived and produced. I don't think I remember Ian. What a tragic story. Life is so fragile. Thanks for posting Don. Take care. Greg

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
