Hello, forum friends

Recently Yamaha has released Vocaloid 5 and I bought an upgrade version of it.
In order to get used to the operation of it, I am working on the music production using it very hard now. This song is also one of them.

Pachelbel's canon has been used often as a material of pops since long ago.
I think that the chord progression (I - V - VIm - IIIm - IV - I - IV - V7) is very compatible with the contemporary pops and easy to create familiar melodies with it.
I tried making a simple canon based on Pachelbel's Canon this time as well.

Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Summary of lyrics:

Moi, je t'aime, toi, tu m'aime
Nous, on s'aime, toujours et à jamais
You and I, we found the paradise

Only you have the key to my heart.
Only I know the warmth of you

Moi, je t'aime, toi, tu m'aime
Nous, on s'aime, toujours et à jamais
You taught it to me with your small wings

Every time you touch my heart, I can be reborn again
We are linked by certain stuff tightly more than oath or prayer forever

Moi, je t'aime, toi, tu m'aime
Nous, on s'aime, toujours et à jamais
You and I, we will go upstairs to the paradise

I am always dreaming in your big arms
If I extend my hands and hold you
Tomorrow will start in our hearts

Moi, je t'aime, toi, tu m'aime
Nous, on s'aime, toujours et à jamais
You taught it to me with your small wings

Only you have the key to my heart
Only I know that warmth of you

Shigeki,

Very enjoyable with that melodic link to Pachelbel (that`s about as irressistable as a melody can be- I wrote my first song based on it!).
The vocaloid here sounds cute ( can`t think of a better word), and I like the harmonies - are those generated using the BiaB harmoniser?

Great work on this! Very gorgeous vibe and quite uplifting. The string instrumentation makes it sound quite royal, and love the synthesized vocals too. Fantastic!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Wow - what a tune! Canon in D major is a personal favourite of mine, and this was a gorgeous and powerful ode. This sounds magical and captivating. Simply put, you came up with a beautiful song here. The way you incorporated both male and female vocaloids here was stunning.

Not a thing I'd change on this one - thanks for sharing smile

Shigeki..I’m enjoying the way you are proceeding as you get to know the new software tool. Your “experiments” are very professional, and the lyric is also of high quality. Once again, I am sad that I don’t understand the Japanese language in order to get the nuance of your lyric and how you are utilizing the vocaloid technology...it sounds wonderful!

Lots of fun Shigeki!

Yes, where would Western or Japanese music be without this chord progression.

Don't know about you guys, but 95% of our songs would disappear if God took this chord progression away.

Shigeki

Very pretty sounding - lovely backing and nice use of Vocaloid - especially when both voices sing.
Nice work and the strings are superb.

Shigeki you are a Vocaloid expert. This is a beautiful song with a great arrangement and backing tracks.

I think have heard this chord progression couple of times in my life, also on this forum smile But good to learn its origin.

You have added nice melody to the progression. Good work on the arrangement and Vocaloid.

Wow!!! Your Vocaloid skills just get more and more magical.

What a wonderful use of that progression.

And the orchestra you put together is equally wonderful.

Amazing production!

Hello, Robert

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune.
I am also a big fan of this progression.
I had written many songs using the same progression in the past.
This song is the newest one.
Not only Miku but also other voices are generated by vocaloid5.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.

That was fun.
I had to learn the original melody and variations when learning cello - as an adult.
It's lovely to listen to but dead boring to play the entire Canon through.
You livened it up for me - ta!
