Hello biab members,

Today I am submitting a soundtrack with a 180 bpm. The main instruments on the melody track are the marimba, the vibraphone and the celeste which plays the same melody and which gives this particular sound. The piano reinforces the sound in a few passages. I imported the midi file of the melody into Biab to find the chords he suggested to me.
For the accompaniment, few realtracks with this tempo were suitable.
I therefore used the midi strings files from biab that I adjusted in my daw by replacing the sound with vst trumpets, brass and strings. For the drum, I took the midi file from a biab loop drum and assigned it a vst from “Eastwest Mor”. For the bass I started with a biab midi file that I improved according to the melody (vst “ Mor”). I finally added some Bells and trills (intro and outro) for the coloring of the song. It's an ambient soundtrack whose title is "happy days".

If you have the time to comment, thank you in advance for your advices.

Hello Derochette ...

I always enjoy your music. This is a big production with a very cinematic theme. A very, very nice use of the various tracks to create such a pleasant listen! The mix is perfect.

That was a fun and very enjoyable listen. Excellent! Take care and be safe. Merry Christmas and Happy new Year.

Beautiful composition and perfect for the season.

As others have and will mention it is very cinematic in nature and it
is easy to imagine the tune in a film.

Well produced and it sounds excellent on our monitors.

Enjoyed it!

Yep.... I agree. I could hear this playing as underscore in a film.

Nice
