I’m riding alone on a carousel
Both “I love you” and “Goodbye”
Are passing with merry music
Carousels are turning around and around

Great mellow jazzy tune with nice Vocaloid singing. Enjoyable chord progression. Really good work with the realtracks, the crooner band is in good hands here and the trumpet fits like a glove smile

Shigeki,
A very nice swing groove; the horns sound great and the vocaloid gives an ethereal touch.
Smooth and sweet chord progression.
It would be interesting to hear this song with your band and vocalist friends.

Shigeki Adachi,

Excellent - as is all your work. A delightful melody. Your work with vocaloid is outstanding (I have no idea how that is done).

Wonderful instrumentation, arrangement, production. Great mix. It all sounds "natural" - everything fit perfectly.

A terrific listen.

Superbly arranged and produced.

It sounds tremendous on our monitors with a wonderful sound stage.

The trumpet is amazing...like somebody you've worked with for years.

Excellent!

Wow, what a tune! The production on this is seriously next level. I love the groove of this tune, and the arrangement is near flawless. The trumpet on this makes it for me. Congrats on this, you deserve to be proud.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi Shigeki,

This is my favorite kind of music. This sounds like it was just finished in a recording studio by a terrific live big band. Reminded me of 1940. Made me want to grab my wife and dance! Your music is always so professionally conceived and delivered. Great sound on a great song.

Alan

Same here.

I loved that big band that you have going on here but I didn't like the vocaloid. I would get a real vocalist for this outstanding backing track.

Hello, Janne, Scott, Robert, Torrey, floyd, Trevor, Janice & Bud, Deryk, Kenny, Graham, Mike, Alan, LPman, Greg, Mario,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I much appreciate your really nice words.
I am very glad to hear you all like this tune.

Janne, Scott, Robert, Torrey, floyd, Graham, LPman,
Many thanks for your nice comments to Miku, vocaloid.

Robert, Graham, Greg, Mario,
If I can find a vocalist suitable for this song, I'd definitely want to make a version of a human female vocalist.

LPman,
I created this song in the following order.
Get the lyrics.
Consider melody in accordance with lyrics.
Find the suitable chords for the melody.
Consider chord progression of intro, interlude, ending.
When all chord progression is decided, input them to BIAB.
Search for the suitable style.
Search for the perfect soloist.
Generate RealTracks.(2 or 3 times)
Write out the WAV file for each instrument and load them into Cubase.
Create a vocaloid track.
Cut away or replace RealTracks that disturb melodies and solos
Mixdown.

Thanks again to all.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.
