Goodday all.
Here is a nice languid ballad written on BBox using Realdrums and Sonik Synth.
I used the holds/pushes thingy with 1 or 2 parts still playing for the 1st time on this track and I think it works ok.

Hope it goes down well.

Nice production. I liked the guitar sounding part.

Those holds and rests and shots are critical, but they can be a little tough to get right in BIAB. There are some posts about using them in the other forums that helped me, once I finally discovered those functions. You're already there:)

Hi everyone.
Thanks for the comments,always appreciative of constructive opinions.
I reckon although I have been using BB since 2008 I bet I've only used about 30% of the styles! Its amazing how many there are.
Bye for now.
