Hi friends! like my title says, this is probably my last song posted for this year. Being a pretty busy time at home this time of the year I probably won't have the time to post anything else although I have a few other tunes in progress.
I want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas. Here's Take Something , a kind of Latin Jazz with heavy Afro Cuban background percussion section. Hybrid styles built in BIB and RB.
Stats are:
RT's: Alto Jazz Sax funk grooving Ev 16
realDrums: SalsaCongaFolk
All other instruments are midi through a Ketron SD2 and drums midi with AddictiveDrums.

Thanks for listening
Mike B.

What a song to end your BIAB year. Enjoyed the listen and it's a very nice production.

Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
