... and call it a Holiday song.... LOL

Peace to All

Oh - and for a change, I am not playing a single instrument. It's all BIAB! May I'll get some lyrics and vocals to compliment the arrangement. Hope, you enjoy!


Cheers,
Mike

Mike - very aptly named piece - it is quite a "peaceful" listen. I'd like to hear a mix with percussion (bongos) instead of hihats and rimshots. That would make it even "more peaceful". Good job.

That is a mighty fine arrangement with just BIAB stuff. It really is amazing what BIAB can do (when used correctly, that is). Well done.

Mike,
Very nice. A creation like this is a reminder that BIAB "is" a musical instrument and users are a new breed of musician.

Great work with BIAB...only suggestion might be to change up one of the choruses with more minimal perc...already suggested above....Happy holidays!

I actually want to dedicate this tune to my friend John Hamilton Jr, serving in the US Army for 20 years. He did this last Monday early morning in a house fire. He was a good man and well respected, with a good heard who would not stop helping those in need.

RIP, John!!!!

Hi Mike,

Words and phrases that sprang to mind as I listened were: interesting use of bass drum, very restful, peaceful, would love to hear some lyrics to this, excellently mixed, classy.

I always enjoy listening to your work and this is no exception.

All the best,
Noel

The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode! #TBT

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
