Hello, forum friends

After a little blank, I would like to post my songs again.
This song is written for the latest recording session of our music circle in this summer.

I would like to introduce you two versions, which are the live band version and the RealTrack version.
The RealTrack version was made for the vocalist to practice this song.
I usually prepare the karaoke version of the song made with BIAB in advance for vocalist.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Summary of lyrics:

You will know a new love
And will regain a burning heart
You will get an excitement back in someone else's arms
Which was lost between the two of us

You say you will be my friend in the future too
I think it can't be done
I must be suffering more
If you are not my lover I don’t want you are by my side

What I want is that time when it shone brightly
Such happy days to spend in your arms I was so satisfied
It is the time of love that lifts our mood
With sweet kisses and gentle hugs

Where are you going without hesitation?
You leave me abandoned
Without saving your heart for me
You're about to forget even that you have loved me

You will live with your new heart
You will find pleasure in the different lips
You are now flying into the light
To start new days

I will stay here with your memories
Forever as it is
And I will love only you forever
With my lost heart

interesting to compare..the "live" cut seems a little smoother, gentler and flowing while the "RealTrack" version is crisp,linear and a little detached...it may be the lovely strings on the "live" that give me that impression.
Cool vocal, lovely story..
Both are really well done.


Cheers

Hi Shigeki,

Thanks for posting this lovely song.

Superb vocals and great instrumentation.

I thought the Studio version was a better mix in that the vocals were better integrated with the backing in terms of level.

Look forward to hearing more of your songs.

Best Regards
Nigel

Oh, yes, Shigeki Adachi, I miss your posts. That is how I used BiaB for years --as an example for others to practice before recording. Sadly most of those folks are dead now so...

Love the melody and wonderful choice of vocalist. And, as you always do, there is such a gifted arrangement and mix. At times I felt the strings were competing with the vocal but they are so good it doesn't matter. Thanks so much for the translation. I purposely didn't read the lyrics until after listening to the song. I knew I'd be able to get the story from the feel of the music and passion of the vocalist. You are so good at that.


Enjoy whatever happens!

lovely changes and build ups.
count me highly impressed.
talented vocallist. maybe i like vocal doubling too much...
but i think this would sound superb with subtle vocal doubling in places. not everywhere just in places for variety.
you are very very talented.
well well done.

A quality production, and clearly a big effort went into the production.

I liked the sparseness of the instrumentation backing in places, this surprisingly gave depth to the performance, and the drumming fitted absolutely perfectly.

Nice, no question.

Shigeki Adachi,

Always nice to have you return to the Showcase.

A beautiful song (as always). Very nice melody. Tsuyoshi Tamada did a great job on the vocals. Lovely arrangement and a good mix on both the live version and the RealTracks version. Overall, I preferred the RealTracks version.

I enjoyed listening.

The BIAB band is perfect to represent the endless melancholy ("I will love only you forever With my lost heart"). Beautiful and professional melody and chording. The singer is excellent, nice vibrato and emotions are strongly expressed.

Beautiful song Shigeki. Must say I like the live cut better than the Real Tracks. Well done

Simply too hard to choose, Shigeki. They are both lush and lovely.
Perhaps the strings give the live version a bit of an edge.

The vocalist has a great voice ... fine crooner.

Well composed (great melody), performed and mixed.

We enjoyed it!

Beautiful song, well sung. Your arrangement was extraordinary, as usual. For some strange reason I liked the RT version a little better, but it is a close call.

It's always a treat to see your name appear here and when it does I go straight to the song you've posted. You're a real talent!

Shigeki, Every time I see you name in the showcase I know that I'm in for a treat. This time I had double the pleasure.

Your vocalist is outstanding. Your composing knowledge is second to none and it really shines in these songs.

Both song were mixed to perfection, but I really liked the live band version the best. It sounded warmer to me, especially in the French Horns.

Loved it!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

That's a very rich arrangement.
Love the vocal, particularly on the real track version.

Strangely, I prefer the RT version over the live.

Well Done!

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."
