Dan, this is beautiful! The vocals are fabulous, and the backing track is perfect. I flipped back to the credits to see what that great piano RealTrack was, but it was you...that's really, REALLY nice. If I have a complaint it's that the song is too short. Ha!

Dan & Amber ...

Simply gorgeous in every aspect. As Bob said, soothing. I think I said everything I felt in those few words. Everything beautiful sums it up from here.

I've been in your part of the country in winter - mid-December a number of years ago. The wind can cut you in half!

Best to you,

Alan

Well, thank you very much, my friend. I just downloaded the whole album and have a couple hours in the car today, so it's Christmas albums from you, Greg Johnson, James Delsono and Gayle Snyder. I'll be in the slow lane with a smile.


Enjoy whatever happens!

HA! The last couple have been long. And to your credit, they Never seem Long. Talent.


A stunning vocal.

Beautiful piano. When the BIAB instruments are added, they blend in perfectly.

The mix is exquisite.

LOVE the lyric economy.

One Hell of a New Christmas Song!
WOW.

Amber and Dan, you did one heck of a job on this one.
Beautiful vocal and great piano playing.
Super mix.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Beautiful vocal that is perfect for this song. Gorgeous harmonies. The background cello complements both the vocal and piano.

Dan, you have created a beautiful Christmas present for us. The vocals are exceptional as is the piano. The cello was a wise choice and fit perfectly. Nicely executed and Happy Holidays to you and yours, Tom

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
