Nice! I really like the harmonies and the use of stereo in the mix.

Great use of space in the mix.

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

This was a really great song. Vocaloid vocals are not always my favourite thing, but I feel they work really well here, as they don't interfere or detract from the overall sound.

Great job. smile

So clear and beautiful. That vocaloid is such an interesting instrument. Definitely makes for some very cool tunes. Well done

Really beautiful soul song, perfect selection of instruments for the mood. I like the introduction of the drums and those little effects fit in nicely. Very touching melancholic lyrics.

quekou,

This is really, really beautiful... incredibly good!



The arrangement and the mix are spectacular. Your choice of instruments is superb and I love the way that you've used the stereo field to add audio dimension and texture.

It sounds like you spent many hours getting this to sound so good. There is a great deal of expertise on show in this piece of music and its production.

Regards,
Noel

You did an incredible job on this, quekou smile It has just a gentle tone to it, I found it really easy to close my eyes and get lost in. I'm not sure if you've ever heard of a band called Air - but this is very reminiscent of some of their work. I especially likes when the drums kicked in.

You nailed this one - thanks for sharing!

Hello, QueKou

Your song is always very impressive.
This song is no exception.
The combination of RealTracks is really nice.
And your vocaloid is also wonderful.
It is very different from vocaloids released in Japan, but I also like yours.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Nice arrangement. Your use of BIAB tracks is very well put together. The computerized vocals are a bit strange in spots but the overall idea is conveyed well.

Thank you for your kind words.
Yes, SweetAnn is one of the Yamaha Vocaloid products. I think vocaloids released in Japan in Japanese are more tailored to younger generations.
