Hi All,
Here is the French Version of SOS Titanic .Its a song about the heroes on the Titanic percieved or real .English Link is below which I posted earlier in the year.
Realtracks make up the entire music ,High Violin,Low Violin,Piano and Cello the instruments used by the band on the ship.I put the violins through a filter to make them sound a bit haunting.urs Hugh

SOS TITANIC Cherbourg Édition
Sauvez-vous
Harper a pleuré
Les femmes, les enfants et les damnés
Le Carpathia se dépêche
Mais les héros de l’ombre trépassent
Molly Brown a crié
Revenez en arrière
Mais plus un bruit dans l’air
Plus un bruit
Kate et Léo se séparent
Selon l’histoire
Mais leur cœur battra toujours
Chacun pour soi désormais
Mais l’orchestre a continué
Sauvez nos âmes
Sauvez nos âmes
Au fil des ans, j’entends l’écho de Jack Phillips
Venez vite et sauvez nos âmes
Venez vite et sauvez nos âmes

English Version is at this link

Wonderful production work here. Clean sound. Loved the SOS Morse code bits fitting so well in the rhythm. Thoughtful and enjoyable throughout.

Hi Thanks all for the kind comments.The vocalist was fantastic as she was bilingual and her voice suited the song 100%.I had alot of sibilance problems in production due to the amount of S's in the song and dealt with them manually in the end and a light touch of a deesser after.The realtracks were amazing especially the Piano thanks again to PG for making this song possible Hugh

High.. I listened to your wonderful track, and I also listened to the English version. You are to be commended for the detailed work that you did on this composition. Both productions are very polished, and are of the highest quality. This is an excellent meditation on the titanic event. Thanks for sharing your creative work!

Hi Tano,Scott,
Thanks for listening,I think her vocal fitted both English and French and probably even more interesting in her mother tongue.I upped the angelic background(sampletank played over Realband midi) a little more in the Cherbourg version and I liked it.The standard of the songs on the Usershowcase pushed me hard to getting up near to the standard of the forum songs.Thanks again everyone for the positive reaction to the song Hugh

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
