SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK and SINGAPORE, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The team from BandLab, the social music platform where users can create, collaborate and share their music, is celebrating the holiday season by releasing 12 new festive sounds into their web Mix Editor. From crackling fire and sleigh bells to angelic choirs and drummer boys - the sounds in the Festive Pad will help music makers create sensational seasonal tracks.
BandLab's Festive Pad was created in house by professional sound engineers and musicians so that BandLab users can have incredible, high quality seasonal sounds at the press of a button. As always, this feature is completely free - and integrates seamlessly as part of BandLab's desktop DAW. It can be shared across all social platforms and allows for multiple collaborators, so whether you are with your nearest and dearest these holidays or not - you can still make music merriment this season.
At the same time, BandLab is also launching a 12 Sounds of Christmas #FestiveWIN competition, to celebrate original music made for the holiday season. To enter, users are invited to create an original track featuring a sound or sounds from the Festive Pad and tag it with #FestiveWIN on BandLab.
The winners will be judged by a panel from BandLab and 12 finalists will win a MONO Passport Wallet, with the ultimate winner scoring a FlyBy Backpack by MONO. BandLab will also feature the top 12 #FestiveWIN tracks on the BandLab platform until the end of the year.
The competition is open from today until 13 December 2016 and the ultimate winner will be announced on 23rd December 2016 - so get creative and crank out your best festive tunes!
