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!

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
