Hi all,
this time I didn't use a Vocaloid.
The vocals are by an unknown singer from the Royal Northern College of Music (UK) (Sample CD from Zero-G which also provided the aahh sounds used).
It's an adaption of Marietta's Aria from the opera "The Dead City" by Erich Wolfgang Korngold. I hadn't heard of him before. But he is a well known composer of Hollywood film scores and received two Oscars.
Here is the original:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roPSH0-_EZg&list=PLDEED516B0263F7C5
It was a little tricky because the samples had a terrible timing.
And I changed the mix of 3/4 and 4/4 to continuous 4/4 measures.
I made 5 versions with different rhythms and ended up with the Reggae version which was perfect for me.
RealTracks:

RT1158_ Guitar, Electric, Rhythm ReggaeSlow Sw 0

I hope you enjoy.

Classical Raggae! What a concept; probably only the hyper-imaginative Guenter could have thought this up - and executed it convincingly to any skeptics (Classical Raggae? Heh heh, you're joking of course). No, it's the real thing folks.

"Interesting mashup" was my thought exactly.

Wow, and I thought that the Reggae song we are finishing up was a mashup! This makes our effort seem like traditional Reggae! Your technical skills are just off the chart and then to make it all sound like great music. Hat's off to you! Very cool production.

Guenter,

Classical Reggae....brilliant!

Astounding.
As Janice and Bud say about their reggae and blues song, I thought reggae and bossa was extreme with my reggae style song but this........ +1 to what Bud says also.
What will you produce next??? I for one can't wait!

Guenter, your originality and ingenuity never fails to amaze me!
What a great track, it conjures up all sorts of mental images. Nicely engineered also, as usual. Well done.

+1 I didn't think I'd like something this different but the subtleties and pretty tones in the arrangement were quite interesting.

Guenter,

Gypsy Reggae Opera! It's official.. I've now heard EVERYTHING!

How you can possibly do what you do is mind-boggling. I do imagine you must have a great time doing it.

And you manage to make opera enjoyable in the process. The opera world should be beating a path to your door. You could increase their audience ten-fold.

This is a work of art. That is the best compliment I know of.

A thing of beauty.

floyd

Hi Guenter
WOW! I was not expecting that I must say. Very different textures all coming through on the one track. Very inventive and an enjoyable listen.

Hi Floyd,

thanks for listening and commenting.
"And you manage to make opera enjoyable in the process."
That refers to me, too. I didn't use to like opera at all.
But by playing around with arias I get to love the melodies
eventually. It's always a challenge.

Hi Joanne,

I'm glad you liked it. Thanks a lot.

Like others said, creative use of styles. The gypsy fiddle, and classical voice, all over a reggae backing, this really creates two emotions at once and makes me think of a soundtrack. Perhaps on a French street.

Digging it, thanks for posting.

Astonishing (a word I do not use lightly) and very, very beautiful. How did you match tempos?

Richard

Edited to add: "Humanoid," which ensues on your Soundcloud page, would fit right in with the music I listen to all night on a Polish electronic music station. You need to get this stuff into distribution.

Guenter,

I just got here, in fact I am listening as I type. Here a couple of thoughts, you have got to be kidding and who would have thunk it?

Translation to the aforementioned thoughts . . .

#1. Without hearing the finish product one might think mixing these two genres was a joke but just after a few bars listen that image and thought is long gone.

#2. Gunter would have and did think it!

Very enlightening as to what music can be to different people, their ideas and ears and of course a great example of your creativity! You rock man!

Later,

Hi Richard,

thanks a lot.
I had two songs, one with tempo 40 and the other with
80 bpm. In Reaper I put them together and tweaked
the vocals by changing the play speed percentage in the 7 takes.
About distribution: I've been retired for a year now and don't want to start a business. I just do it for fun.

Hi Danny,

thank you very much for your kind words.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
