Dear PG Music:

Here is my submission for the Xtra Styles PAK 3 Song Contest.
This song was written about 4 years ago, I remade it with Xtra Styles PAK 3 for the submission this time.

Additional Harp, Glockenspiel and 4 part Strings played with EastWest Symphonic Orchestra scored by me

Summary of lyrics:

Fragments of the sea are carried by the wind
I brushed the windshield of my car
The dry sand dropped to the ground
Together with my affair in this summer

I have been always close to you
But now you are leaving me
I wish the change of both our mind must happen
At the same time or at least the same night

The season will not return anymore
My memories will fade away
But I don’t know if the day will come
When I can accept this good-bye

Hot sand lasts to the place
Where the waves roll in and out
I do not have enough courage
To get barefoot and run to the sand

I will forget even your name
I will send my memories of you away
But I wish the day would come true someday
When I could come across someone resembling you

I got caught in a traffic jam of the people
Who would return home from the sea
Their laughter echoes loudly
I feel such dusk is really sad

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Dear Shigeki...

I adore the musical world you live in, or that part of it I've heard in the "User's Forum", at least!

Based on the sound and style of your compositions, it's a sweet, airy, and mellow world made of equal parts of sunshine and rain, wind and calm, work and play, and inhabited by musicians whose talents assist in maintaining the delightful emotional "weather" of the place. I guess I'm trying to describe a kind of musical utopia, here.

Your composition, "Sandy Beach -- Fragment of Summer", has a sound that reminds me somewhat of the kind of light disco tunes that one could hear performed by professional bands that played for weddings and other celebratory events throughout the 70's here in America. But then again, your arrangement brings it up to date for the 21st century with its more smoothly jazzy feel and orchestral pleasures.

It's easy to listen to, and danceable, even. The lyrics, as usual, are sublime. You and Ms. Yoshikawa are an enviable musical team!

Sincerely,

LOREN

Dear Loren,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate always your very kind words.
And many thanks for your really nice comments to my composition, Natsuki's vocal and lyrics.
The lyrics were written by Chisato, a female lyricist belonging to the amateur lyricist group named "Escargot" with deep interaction with our music circle.
We are constantly making a lot of works jointly.
This song is one of them.
The original arrangement of this tune was orthodox Latin music, but I found a perfect one from the Xtra Styles PAK 3, so I remade it this time.
I am very glad you enjoyed your listen a lot.

Sincerely,

Shigeki Adachi

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
