I am always interested (and intrigued) as to the development of vocaloid phrasing and singing.

I think you have a presented a great effort here.

You have really demonstrated the developing potential of this technology.

Presented in a great song as well.

Hi Shigeki,

just great.
I love the original version. The vocals are a bit flat at times and should be a little more up front. But the phrasing is much more beautiful than the vocaloid.
Great song. Enjoyable listens.

Hi Shigeky,
You can reassure your friend Yoko, as Guenter, I much prefer her nice voice than the vocaloïd one ;-) there is surely a lot of work, but it remains a bit artificial. But, It could be also, the intention.

However, this technique is amazing and I don't say I won't try it one day, when the french langage will be available.

By the way, did you know the work made by Dcuny : https://soundcloud.com/dcuny/the-gates-of-babylon-vocaloid

Very pretty music Shigeki!! I like the way the music steps down in a repeating pattern. Michael Franks used this kind of progression often. It is sweet. Really enjoyed! Take care. Greg

Hello, VideoTrack, Guenter, Floyd, Pascal, David, Greg, and everybody,
Thank you very much for your warm and precious comments.
I was very encouraged by your comments every time.

Guenter, Pascal,
Thank you for your comments to the original recording.
I’m sure my friend Yoko will be very glad to read them.
Of course I prefer human vocal to vocaloid, but it is also fun for me to let Miku sing.

Pascal,
Dcuny has given me a comment to another vocaloid song which I posted here before.
Then I knew his Vocaloid song wich was beautiful.
And I found that Avanna had more natural pronunciation than Miku.

Greg,
Thank you for your comment to the chord progression, which I also like and I use similar progression often.

Thank you again to all and I will post my music again.

Shigeki Adachi

Hello Noel,

Thank you very much for your tender comment.
I am very glad that you love my music every time.
I always keep in mind to look for new approach to music analyzing many works made by great composers whom I love such as Legrand, Jobim, Morricone and etc.

Best Regards.

Sergio

HI ...

We enjoyed our listen very much. Several things came to mind as we listened:

1. Nice selection of tracks

2. Vocal was nice but maybe should be more forward in the mix (louder). Other than that, the mix was very good.

3. We loved the Latin arrangement with a touch of Classic R&B ... great combination!

4. The song mildly reminded us of "Girl From Ipanema", although your song is more aggressive (in a good way) and used the Classic R&B flavor to some degree.

We liked it a lot! Best to you ...

Alan & Di

Nice latin sound. I like it, a little less vocaloid use but the music is
very well mixed and I enjoyed it.

We both agree with what Noel said and we really enjoyed the Latin groove.
Very nice production!

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.
