This YouTube video begins with a 30 second intro to one of our new songs, "Circling the Drain" which is available for auditioning in the User Showcase. That posting also contains song info about "Circling the Drain."

The musical intro of this video was created with BIAB and is titled "Topdown":

"Topdown" is an original song featuring Allman Brothers style twin guitars. It currently has no lyrics. The first 30+ seconds of the song are currently used along with original video footage as an intro to other original songs for upload to YouTube. Since all the music in the videos were made with BIAB I gave the proper credit to PG Music in the intro. Hopefully, there will be a full version of "Topdown" in the near future with lyrics. In the meantime, enjoy! ~Rob

Have you got the link for your initial "Showcase" post of this tune? I can't seem to find it, and the "Tag" feature for submitting videos doesn't seem to work on my old system smirk

Try the Search Forums field on the upper right. Putting in the song title worked for me. -Rob

That was going to be my next step, just thought I'd ask the person who referenced it first wink

Edit: I've found it, btw, so it's all good cool

Thanks, Mark. Pleased you liked it. Not sure about that "story of my life" thing. Hope it's not too bad there.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.

We talk about these new features within our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content! video:
