This song was my third one I did with BiaB last year.
Now I have made a remix.
The lyrics only consist of the word "Du" which means "you" in English.
Sometimes you don't need more than one word to say what you think.
I wanted to use Vocaloid Gumi as harmonies. But it (she?) couldn't say "doo" and
always said "dee". So I tried Vocaloid Avanna and the pronunciation is perfect.
The male voice is made of twelve samples of my own voice.
Here are the RealTracks I used:
366:Bass,El,Rhy,Country Ev65
688:Orgel,B3,Bg Pop Ev65
841:Git,El,Ry,PopBldSlGrt Ev65
1167:Gtr,El,Sol,RockBalladEv65
Real Drums: NashvilleEven 16'
1542:Pno.Ak.Rh.PWSlo 16th Ev 1665
1643:Sax T.Solo.JzFunkBrzyEv 75Blz

I liked the beginning of the song, but it by the end there was just a bit too busy for me. I wanted to voices a bit more in front... I know they're just instruments, but it's hard to hear them that way when you're got an expectation that the lyric goes front and center!


GUMI can sing the [u:] sound properly - it's just the single [d u:] blend appears to be mapped incorrectly to [d i:]

You can get GUMI to sing a "du" if you have a short [d u:] (say, a 32nd note) followed by a [u:] sound. The vowels will be smoothly blended together via spectral envelope morphing.

Vocaloid has some very smooth vowel morphing. I'm trying to code something similar right now for my own project.

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

Thanks Steve, David, Greg and Floyd for your nice comments.
@David: Editing 158 notes is too much of a strain.

Thanks MountainSide and Bud.

@Bud: Many. But 10 years before my retirement a had no time
to play a single note. So I have backlog demand. And since
last August I savor the time I have.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
