Not your normal version of this song. to say the least, it's a little bit over the top and out of the box.

Silent Night (the rocking version)

Hope you enjoy this version

Guitars are played by me. All the other tracks are BB/RB. Bass, drums, B3..... yep, I think that's about it.

Have a rocking good Christmas!
You'll have Franz Xavier Gruber spinning in his grave grin but I loved it.
Neat harmonies and lots of OD guitar.
cheers and Merry Christmas

Hey Herb,

Now that's different! I have to say the production and the arrangement are spectacular. I really like the way you've optimised the spread of instruments across the stereo field. That's a skill that I've still got to master. Thanks for giving me a lesson in how do it smile

This song is one of my all time favourites and I'm not sure that I've adjusted to the change in style. That being said, though, there's no arguing about the fact that your arrangement, performance and production combine to give music at its best.

Happy Christmas to you and yours,
Noel

Very nice, Herb! I've never heard you rock like this. smile

This is one of my favorite Christmas carols, and although different, it's a refreshing arrangement. I like it.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
