Hello, everybody

This is my new vocaloid song.
In Japan, the graduation ceremony is held around the end of March, while the entrance ceremony in the beginning of April.
It just overlaps with the cherry blossom season.
Therefore, the farewell scenes often appear in the songs for cherry blossoms.
This is a farewell song in a girls’ high school, in which the feeling of a younger girl for a senior girl is sung.
Comments encouraged.
Have at it.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Vocal by YUMI (my music circle friend) accompanied with the live band
Arrangement by Sayuri Yahagi (my music circle friend)
All instruments played by the teachers of Yamaha Music School

Translation of lyrics:

The time when white snow was whirling passed
Now cherry blossoms are fluttering
It is also a season of farewell
It has come nearly here

Flower decorations are attached to the chest
And you give me a cheerful smile
Yet I can’t do anything but standing here
While I'm a little apart from you

You have cut your long hair
And you are going to leave this town
Someday you will forget me
And you will never think of me again
We bought together the same dresses
But I will throw mine away tomorrow morning
Because I know you will never let pass the sleeve of yours again

Cherry blossoms are fluttering like snow
What a heartless and a short-lived unfair flower

You have cut your long hair to the shoulder
And you hold out your right hand to me
But I can’t do anything and my tears are falling down

You can’t know the meaning of yearning
It had begun to shift little by little between us
Attempting to approach you
I had begun to let grow my hair
But it did not reach to the shoulder until now
As my feelings did not reach you

Cherry blossoms are fluttering like snow
They will surely come into bloom next year again despite myself

Cherry blossoms are fluttering like snow
What a heartless and a short-lived unfair flower
What a hateful flower carrying you off from me

Shigeki,

This is very bright and pop sounding - although there is a sad tone to the lyrics which are poetic.
I enjoyed the vocaloid version,but the expression in the human vocal wins out -and the band sound is very good ( including the orchestra?).
Well done to all your group on this!

Robert

Shigeki,

All though I am not a big fan of vocaloids I must say that this is the best that I have heard to date.

Hello, Robert

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am very glad you enjoyed the both versions.
The orchestra is not included in the live band.
All the orchestra instruments are played with keyboards by teachers.
In the recording session, MIDI data is also recorded to DAW application together with WAV data.
So, I replaced WAV data of Keyboards with VST instruments (EastWest Symphonic Orchestra) using MIDI data at the mix down.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Shigeki,

Both versions are outstanding. I do not know which I prefer and would hate to have to make a decision.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful

All the best

Undoubtably this is one of the absolute best vocaloid versions that we've heard. I bet we can fool some friends with it!

They are both typical of your lush and very lovely productions.

Enjoyed them!

Shigeki

Think I preferred the live version but the vocaloid was a bit of a revelation after listening to the live one first.
Really well done.

Peter

Wow Shigeki, once again you've knocked me over with an amazing tune! I absolutely love that melancholy vocal melody. So appropriate for the feeling of graduating and moving on! As always, can't wait to hear more from you.

Shigeki Adachi,

Very well done - both versions. It was enjoyable and interesting to listen to the two version. As Bud said, the Vocaloid was very impressive.

I always enjoy your music.

Hello, Peter, Will, floyd, Josie, Greg

Many thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your kind comments and your continuous supports.
And I am very glad you like the live version arrangement by Sayuri, my circle friend.
She is much younger than me, but she is very good at arrangement.
So, sometimes I ask her to arrange my songs.
Thank you again to all.

Best Regards.

Shigeki Adachi

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.
