Deryk states my sentiments quite well. You and Di were at the top of my list of User Forum artists I watched for posts from the very beginning of my time here on the forum. I watched posts on the forum for 8-9 months before jumping in to comment and really enjoyed how finished your songs were and the professional quality of the writes and production.

Wishing the best for you and Di. Thanks for sharing these wonderful memories with us.

Charlie


Hi Charlie,

Aw ... thanks so much. You put a smile on a couple of old faces! (Mine needs all the help oy can get!). You have no idea how much we appreciate those wonderful comments. Right now, Di needs all the encouragement she can get and this was a big boost for her. And we always enjoy hearing your posts, too. There's a lot of talent on these boards and you're always among our favorite listens.

Again, many thanks! Glad you enjoyed the videos.

Alan (Di, too!)

Hi Alan,

We must have missed this one (we've been kinda busy the last couple of months).
It's great to see you guys live in these 3 videos.
You're doing a fabulous Willie Nelson performance smile and we love Di's voice too!
We're very sorry to hear that she is getting worse.
Our sympathies are with you both.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Thanks Rob and Anne-Marie! We enjoyed those days very much. If DI's health ever gets better, we'll do so more of it.

As far as the Willie nelson impression, I did that quite a bit back when i was playing regularly in the band. It kind of comes naturally to me. Glad you enjoyed the videos - thanks for letting us know!

Alan & Di

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
