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

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!

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
