Hello queko,

I loved it! When that bass line came in, it put a big smile on my face. I've always loved Jazz and this is so good. The vocalist has a beautiful voice. And the lead guitar riff is sweet! I really enjoyed this! Would love to hear more of your music. Best to you.

Really enjoyed that. Did you do the percussion separately, or was that a BiaB Track also?

Thanks for listening to my song. The percussion is primarily self-made but I do use BIAB to generate the fills here and there. forgot which real drum style I used. BIAB is a very versatile and creative tool. It really gets my creativity going when I am stuck.

Wow - what a tune! It sounds smooth as butter, and that lead guitar, as others have said, is fantastic. The groove is lovely, and the track has a really velvety tone to it that I find enchanting.

Really well done, thanks so much for sharing smile

Fantastic piece quekou! I found this very hypnotic and captivating. How did you get the synthesized vocals to sound so rich? Brilliant use of effects too. Thank you so much for sharing, its always a blast listening to your tunes! Including Mirage!

It was very interesting to see a song based on a specific Chinese poem. Seems pretty creative!

A super big plus 1!

This is excellent.

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

BIAB can definitely be used for modern sounding music. Lots of producers spend tons of money on pre-made loops with not much flexibility to work with whereas BIAB real tracks provides virtually unlimited "loops" to work with in any keys with many instruments. And they are a lot more flexible because they take chords!.

Thanks for listening to my music. smile

the vocal is synthesized with Yamaha Vocaloid software. Then it's heavily process in Ablele Live with stock plug-ins such as compressor, eq8, echo etc. it's also overdubed with a nother track with only the reverb wet of the original vocal. The end result is drastically different than the dry source does sound very much so like a robot. Thanks for listening to my music !
