December 21, 2022  -  User Showcase Song - The Music Box - Original song for Christmas by Stan Young

I wrote this song some years ago and found one of the styles included with BIAB 2022 to be particularly suited to it.

It was finished in BIAB 2023, exported to Mixcraft 9 Pro. I removed the strings from the original arrangement because it is, after all, a "simple song". My acoustic guitar and vocal were added along with some compression and reverb. Here are the BIAB specifics:
