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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
