I actually wrote and recorded this quite a few years ago but I drag it out every year around this time and share it. This year I thought I would have some fun with BIB and I re-recorded it with the intention of making it 100% BIB but I couldn't help myself and added some background strings and a live guitar lead.

Happy Holidays to all of you and thanks for a wonderfull year of music and knowledge. The talent here is amazing.

Juking tune.... it has lots of good energy and lots to like about it.

On my cans it sounds a bit pushed....almost like it's over compressed.... or on the edge of distortion .... very slight not overtly noticeable.

Love the modulation and the demodulation of keys, not something you hear too much of these days.

Cool sounding guitar part.


Man .... you don't mind changing keys one bit.....

Nice job too on the lyrics....

All around good job.

Ya got me rocking rickey! And it's kind of late here in my neck of the woods, so that's saying something in itself.

Very enjoyable listen.

Later,

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone. It really amazed me how I could fold this song into BIB with so little trouble. And to put it into a "out of the box" arrangement was really a nice suprise.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
