This page has information for a variety of Biab users.
Those interested in styles made by others.
Those interested in learning how to make their own styles.
Those interested in songwriting possibilities using Biab.
Those who simply want to see what others do with Biab.
Whatever type of user you are, I hope you enjoy your visit.
Each midi file on this page represents a single style.
Sample the midi files and see if you don't agree, they do sound pretty good, especially if you have a Sound Canvas module or are using VSC.
