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.
