Playback including backing vocals come from BIAB. In addition, there are some bells, additional drums and pad sounds and, of course, the lead vocal.

I am a BIAB user from Germany and this is my first post here. It's a Christmas song reflecting about feelings of loneliness during Corona lockdown. Hope you enjoy it and maybe even relate to it.

Uwe Fischer,

Welcome to the forum and to Band-in-a-Box. This is an excellent sounding mix. The song has an interesting arrangement and the mix itself is clear and polished.

Do you have a German mix available for comparison? I would be interested in also hearing it to compare how the vocal phrasing matches between the two.

Hi Jim, thanks a lot. I am not exactly sure what you mean by German mix...do you mean a German language version of the song? I do not have yet although I have the lrics already in my drawer. Or did I misunderstand you?

Thanks for the comment. I checked back and know what you mean. But it is not a typo. Actually it is w but the font makes it look like n. I will not use this font anymore. Good that you pointed it out.

I think the addition of the bells really gave the song that extra bit of charm to really push the holiday vibe! Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hi Jim, I will let you know if I record my German version. Currently it is not planned, I am a little bit late by now.

Very nice (and topical).

Good work.

Merry Christmas to you and the band.

Hi Jim, not sure if this may interest you but someone wrote a Dutch text to my song and sang it live. If you want to listen to that version you will find it here:

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
