That is an excellent production. Just top notch from beginning to end arrangement wise. The strings and horns are used quite tastefully and your friends has a very nice voice too. I will be listening to this a few more times for sure. Thank you for sharing it here.

Shigeki,

Welcome to the showcase forum.

Top notch mix. The vox are superbly done and recorded.

Yup.... sounds like a christmas song ....even though the words were not in a language I could understand (except the last 2)

As others have said... nice use of the real tracks.

Dear Shigeki Adachi

There are some great productions here in this Showcase. Really great productions.

But every so often something outstanding comes along. And yours is certainly no exception to that rule. This is one of the best I've heard in awhile.

The string arrangements are superb.

Yoko's vocals are unsurpassed.

Congratulations - please post more

Trev

Hi Shigeki,

welcome to the forum.
Great first post. A very tasteful
arrangement. And wow, your singer
is great.
Just a little difficult to think of Christmas with
over 30 °C outside.
Enjoyed the listen.

こんにちは Shigeki Adachi,

Welcome to the forum smile

Wow! The sound is absolutely beautiful, your friend's singing is spectacular and your composition is magnificent. I particularly liked the bridge and the modulations. Everything is extremely well put together.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening.

Best wishes,
Noel

Hello, Noel

Thank you very much for your warm comment to my composition.
I visited your Soundcloud page and enjoyed listening.
Your songs also have nice modulations, and I found a little bit French feelings in your music as your name.
I love and often listen to French music like Michel Legrand, Charles Aznavour, Jacque Brel and so on.

Best wishes,
Shigeki Adachi

Welcome to the forum!

WOW your first post is a showstopper, very professionally played with the perfect backing tracks, a fantastic vocal and the perfect mix. IMHO this is already a Christmas Classic!

You should start pushing this song! I think that it has fantastic value and should be heard on the radio. Maybe you should start making a Christmas CD!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 Build 2 Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2019 users can download the FREE Build 2 patch update here

Summary of Changes in Build 2:
Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.
Fixed: When batch converting files, the volume of some file types such as wav/mp3/wma/mp4, etc. would be too low.
Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.
Fixed: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.
Fixed: Potential jukebox access violation if there were songs with the entire path of the filename being 256 characters or greater loaded into jukebox.
Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.
Fixed: When loading in a MusicXML file that has a specific guitar fretboard defined that matches one of our fretboards, the guitar tablature type will now be set for the notation.
Fixed: Ability to load in .MXL (compresssed musicXML file) as well as ability to load normal noncompressed musicXML file with the new .musicxml extension instead of just .XML.
Fixed: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
