Hi all

I need to ask a favour if anyone has a couple of mins.
My web site host has had problems with DOS attacks and restricted access to some Ips
At the moment I cant see it from the UK.
However if I go to my web page counter site I can see that I am still getting hits from somewhere.
It would help me to Know if you can reach my website from the link in my signature,
As you are so world wide.
Thank you for your time .
Mike

Down here too.
It appears that the DNS finds the host, but the host doesn't return anything.

Most likely the host server, but also possible that the DNS points to the wrong IP/server.

See Ping result below for the IP that gets reported here (so you can check the DNS)

Pinging mikesmusic.byethost16.com [185.27.134.175] with 32 bytes of data:
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.
Request timed out.

I suppose Ping could be disabled, but not likely on a web server like that.

Hi

Thank you all for your help on this. Everything back to normal again after a lot of work by my host due to attack.

So pop in and have a look some time, there are a few of my Biab mgu and sgu on my freebies page and lots of articles on midi, inst def, and pat files that I have done for your download. Plus various music and keyboard technical bits and bobs.
Have fun and thanks again.
Mike

DOS attacks can be rough for hosting providers.

Getting a server to respond while under attack can be an effort in futility.

Sometimes the server just has to be taken down/offline in order to be recovered.

Sorry you had to experience that.
Not much a public host/provider could do to prevent a random attack, just try to mitigate & recover.
Glad you're back online.
It loaded fine here tonight too.

These attacks are pretty relentless (eye candy, but gets the point across)

Loads also in the netherlands, but clicking on any song gives server error, probably due my VPN proxy intermittant, some sites i cannot access. ... i use firefox.

Specific genre packages are also available for $15 each!

For more information and to listen to demos, click here!

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
