Hey Mario old friend, know what you're going through. My wife had a hip replacement last year, she's now got a slipped disc and severe sciatica. personally, I have pleural plaques which is mild asbestos poisoning, bronchial problems to name a few. We both can still laugh at each other though. You take care old friend and we'll look forward to hearing your music soon again

Hi Mario,

I know what you are going through because I've been less active here for the same reason (accidents in close family). All my best wishes for you and your wife. I hope she will recover soon!

Take care!
Will

GOOD NEWS - yes I had to shout!

The wife is coming home this Sunday, 9/15. I will be very busy with her for a couple of weeks but I just might find some music time soon. I hope to do some recording and listening to the forum members music.

Again I greatly appreciated all of the good wished and prayers from my Internet friends here. You guys and gals are the best!

Great to hear about your wife's continuing recovery Mario.

As regards Acronis (I have 2018) hate it, only user an older version 2010 which is simple and seems to work fine, Acronis latest version is just a overblown piece of junk from my experience with it.

Maybe Nacrium Reflect which has a free version might work better for you.

Mario - good news for your wife.

I've actually had no issues with Acronis 2018 (and have been using Acronis in various versions for the past 15 years or so), but it could be machine dependent (I use it successfully to image 3 of my computers, but I don't use it for regular backups, just full disk imaging - and even then, I use the Linux boot disk to do the image backup). I have also tested it enough to feel confident that I can restore from the image backup, although I have occasionally had to "fix" the boot sector after a restore (which is no big deal).

I have had good luck with Acronis until the 2019 version. I always verify a full disk image and in both cases it was verified. But when I tried to use it it would not reimage the HD. Note I always used the Linux boot disk and the last backup I made was onto a new HD. I checked the HD after the reimage failure and there were no bad sectors.

That's good to know, Mario. I've been getting bugged to upgrade to 2020, but I'm happy with 2018 and since it works for me, I think I'll stay there.

Hi Mario. It's great to know that so many good folks here wish you well. Also fantastic to hear that Linda is doing so well.

When I finally switched to win 10 from win 7, I used Acronis. It would not restore (thankfully, I have Carbonite). I had to contact my pc manufacturer. He led me through the bios and he discovered that my archival dvd was a bad disk! What a pita to reinstall all those pgm files. I know that you will get yours going again soon with your excellent computer knowledge, Mario. Now that I'm back, I'll try to check in here more often.

I just uninstalled ATI 2018 yesterday and installed ATI 2010 in windows 10.

ATI 2010 release 5.021 will work in 10 but later version for that year won't.

I do like to image within the program itself when windows 10 is running, and ATI was a total PITA, doing this.

Such a simple GUI in ATI 2010 and so far has been working fine.

Mario ...

In my prolonged absence, I wasn't aware of your wife's issues. I read through the thread ... so glad to hear she is back home and on the mend. My wife's health issues are the primary reason I've been absent.

Wishing a full and speedy recovery for your wife and a little rest for you! Best to both of you ...

Alan

She is home and making marvelous progress. She can climb the stairs in our split level home by using a cane. She uses a walker for everything else. She is in physical therapy twice a week. She isn't driving yet but we are taking short walks together. I still have to help her get dressed, get her most of her meals, and do everything else that she can't do: thus little time for music. She also now has a respiratory problem and an allergy problem that is being taken care of via many doctor visits, but things are looking up there also.

All in all everyone is amazed at how far she has done in such a little time. She does have a very positive attitude and that helps a lot.

Want to hear what a chord sounds like? Type the chord, then press SHIFT enter. The chord will play as it is entered on to the chord sheet!

You can also familiarize yourself with how different chords sound using the Chord Builder feature of the program, which will audition different chords for you, based on your input.

Want more? Challenge yourself with some ear training with the included Pitch Invasion and Music Replay programs, accessible in the Practice Window!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above, and Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

Pitch Invasion & Music Replay can also be accessed within the bb\Songs and Lessons\Ear Training folder for the program.
