I'm going to imagine some melody, because in my city it never snows: I have not seen much snow either ...
but ... I'll try to create something.

I have not participated in anything for a long time and I'm excited to do it again.

Hey Alex,
Just making sure, am I free to use all the instruments available--I've bought all of them--or am I limited to only the instruments that come free with the lite version of Music Studio?

You are free to use all instruments that you have (free, from the shop, from the forum, your own creations, Inter-App Audio...)

Hello everyone.

I have finished my work:

I have called this song "under the blue", because with that clear and colorful sky everything that can be seen is magnified.

I have used several tracks of kv and XMS

I hope you like it.

Upload the project in the next few days by completing the rules that Alex has marked.

It will take some days, because I want to clearly indicate what elements of kv I have used.

Under the blue ... e-blue-m4a

Zip file: ...

Hi Alex.

Could you confirm that the zip file is downloaded correctly?
