Hi Rob & Anne-Marie.

A wonderful Christmas song with an original slant to it.

Beautifully performed to a super backing track.

The video just completed the very professional package.

Merry Xmas to you both.

Anne-Marie & Rob,

Beautifully done. Vocals, arrangement, mix - all excellent.

The modern commentary in a Christmas song is an interesting, fresh angle.

Nice video - as usual...

Merry Christmas to you both.

Rob & Anne-Marie,
An original and timely way to deliver your message.
Very nice slightly sad melody.
Beautiful vocal and arrangement. The electro flute was a cool instrument choice.
Most enjoyable!

Great performance! And I'm always a fan of your arrangements and instrument choices.

The mix sounds lush and lovely and complements the vocal perfectly.

And the composition is very creative.

I enjoyed it all very much!

(and belated Merry Christmas) And Happy New Year!

We can well relate to the sentiment that you two so wonderfully expressed.

The timing and choice of video clips for the video are stunningly well done.

And then there is the lovely vocal performance and production. This should be seen by millions.

Hope y’all have a fun and productive new year!

Very beautiful you two! I really enjoyed this!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.

Don't eat too much oliebollen--which I believe means "little oily balls" over there.

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

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.

Video - Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - No Sound with MIDI?

Simply click on the [?] at the top of the program (near the Mixer on the right) to launch this feature. From there, simply type in your query, or choose from the long list that appears in the Feature Browser window. If you're typing it in, you'll see that list change to only show the results that could fit your search - once you find what you're looking for, you can read more about it when you choose [Manual], if there's a video for the feature you can choose [Video] to view it, OR - if you don't need to read about the feature and just want to USE it, choose [Do it] and you're all set!

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video:
