While succumbing to prostate cancer, the Hospice Nurse encouraged me to continue playing my music for Fred. He passed peacefully while listening.

Hi Don,

This is one heck of a toe tapper! It's a great listen. I'm pretty sure Fred would have enjoyed all the music that you brought to your shared room.

I offer my condolences to you on your loss.

One of the dangers of being male is prostate cancer. Generally it's a slow growing cancer and many men die of old age long before the cancer creates any issue. Fortunately these days, if the aggressive forms of the cancer are caught it time, they can be attended to.

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with aggressive prostate cancer that had a Gleeson Score of 9 (as far as I know, the index only goes to 10). I had no symptoms at all and even my PSA count only indicated a 1 in 4 chance of my having the cancer. I completely understand how easy it would have been for Fred not to have his cancer picked up in time.

I strongly encourage all guys who read this, and who have not been tested for prostate cancer recently, to go and get it done. There's a ton of joy in catching this cancer in its early development. If the prostate is removed before there is significant damage to the urethra or bladder, the outcome is usually excellent.

Thanks for posting the song! I really enjoyed the energy you brought to my excited feet smile

All the best,
Noel

I've lost many musician friends to prostate cancer including several BIABers who had inspired many of us to persevere in our musical journey with this amazing software. Interestingly, they were always the first to toss the lifeline to us fledglings.

As breast cancer is to our female friends, prostate cancer is to us males.

My dear friend of 60 years, Mike Auldrige lost his long and painful battle with prostate cancer a few years ago. Upon learning that BIABer, Howard Tate was terminal, Mike sent him several unreleased tracks that Howard treasured until his death. Mike's love and compassion is how I will always remember him.

Here's Mike stealing an extra Dobro break:

Nina selected two of my BIAB tunes for 'future projects.'

Nina Gerber, guitarist for the late Folk singer-songwriter Kate Wolf (qv) was amazed that I recognized Mike's Dobro on this song of Kate's.

There is something very unique and recognizable about Mike's style that I will not soon forget.

R.I.P., my friend.

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is 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 it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-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 is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
