Hello, forum friends

Sometimes I would like to remake my old song.
This time I reproduced one of them with RealTracks.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Title: 恋のプラージュ (Translation: Lovers’ Beach)

Summary of lyrics:

I’m yet in half dreamy state of mind
I gently get rid of your hand and got out of bed
It’s still in the early morning
The curtain is shaking near the window

The room is a little cool
Invited by the sound of waves
I’m slightly dancing on my toes
And watching the beach by the window

Our future will continue unchanged tomorrow
Just like the sea that is shining over there
I will believe in you if you hug me tightly with your arms

With stealthy steps some one is approaching me from behind
I know it's you, but my heart is beating faster and faster.

I feel it is a miracle to meet you in this wide world
Please let us remember our brilliant days
And let us spend time together from now on

I will keep staring at only you.
I'm sure we will be blended into one color
Just like the sea and the sky

I really like the production, Shigeki Adachi. Everything comes across without competing for attention. Everything goes to building the whole. Yoko has a great voice for bringing the whole song to a highly enjoyable listen.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Shigeki,

The style works very well- and your inclusion of the busy organ changes the feel to a cool, happy, dance celebration.
Lovely vocal from Yoko and as always on your work, an excellent mix.
Uplifting music!

Shigeki Adachi,

A delightful production - as your work always is.

The organ grabs your attention right away. The bass sounds great.

Yoko's vocal is excellent (as always) and mixed very well.

The balance of instruments is good. Another good mix. Bright and clear.

A very enjoyable listen.

Shigeki, I enjoyed this from the very first note.

Fantastic choice of tempo, and certainly Yoko has delivered an amazing vocal performance.

Musically, the balance is absolutely perfect.

A "Class" Production, no question.

We've always enjoyed a good bossa and this is
excellent.

Yoko's vocal is outstanding and your production
sounds wonderful on our monitors.

It's very unusual to hear an organ solo RT and
you made great use of it.

Really well done!

Lovely arrangement.
I think the vcal could be softened with a tiny bit more reverb but that's just me.
Loved it!


Cheers

Shigeki ...

Another stellar song and production from you. I always hope to hear Yoko singing every time I click onto one of your songs ... she's such a wonderful singer.

A wonderful song. Everything sits perfectly in the mix and that organ is so sweet!

That's a wonderful listen!

Best to you and be safe ...

Alan

I know it's often difficult to translate, but my goodness, this is a GREAT love song lyric. The upbeat band matches the words and the excitement she feels. Yoko has a lovely voice. She handled those slurs like a pro. Love the busy organ interlude. This is simply happy-making. Thanks.

Another great pop song, I really like the organ which, together with the bossa groove and beautiful classic chording, creates a 60's French movie feeling, Yoko's singing is excellent - somehow it sounds like she is singing in French. Nice modulation. Great mix, everything is so smooth giving happy summer vibes.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
