December 20, 2021  -  User Showcase Song - Let's Stay Home

December: cold, rainy, stormy. And Delta and Omikron lurking behind every single corner... Wanna go out? To Bud’s bar? Or the racetrack? Nah... How about that instead:

Let's Stay Home (website with lyrics and German translation)
Let's Stay Home (Soundcloud with lyrics)

This one is quite different from my other songs and it was a bit complicated to put together, because I started with the bass and the drums (both MIDI) and sought for appropriate RealTracks later. Which means that I did not take into account what BIAB can do and what it can’t. Maybe you will notice that there are some triplet pushes in the song - although it seems to be able to do the most wondrous things that’s something BIAB doesn’t support (yet), I think (please correct me, if I’m wrong!).

So I had to literally cut out small parts of the guitar and organ tracks to make them fit which luckily worked out better than I had feared.

Maybe you will notice that the whole thing doesn’t sound as good as my former tunes - no wonder: Maha is still ‘out of office’ and I had to do the whole sound thing almost all on my own. And I admit that I’m a complete mixidiot (and I'm afraid I cannot blame my tinnitus alone). When

I played the result to Maha, she advised me to slightly tweak the voice and bass EQ. What the heck - I tried my best and all I can do (for a million reasons) is hope so much that Maha will be on board again soon !!!

There's no video yet and to be honest: I don't know if there will ever be one.

I'd be glad if you enjoyed the listen - take care everybody - stay sage and safe,



This is the band:
Gene Rabbal, B3 org (RT 671)
