Hello, forum friends

Sometimes I would like to remake my old vocaloid song to a real vocal version.
This time I reproduced one of them with female vocal.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Summary of lyrics:

I say hello to you
Like the sky without an end
Wherever and whenever
I will fly to visit you

I have been thinking I could never see you again
But I noticed it would come true someday
If I kept wishing it strongly
I'll definitely reach you

Before I knew it, I gave it up
I was becoming timid
Now I can't wait to call your name
It is so nostalgic

I was thinking about everything I could not do
But now I only think what I can do
Dreams are not just dreams
How close is your town?

I say hello to you, hello again to you
Like the sky without an end
Yesterday is me and tomorrow is you
I want to be by your side from now on

I'll never leave you again
I kept thinking you strongly
Now the wish will finally come true
Your town is shining there

I posted the vocaloid version here on January, 2015.

Shigeki,

Pretty tune and lovely vocal. I don’t recall hearing a prior version, but can’t imagine it topping this. Really strong in all aspects—impressive music-making!

My very best to you,

Hi Shigeki,

Your production is outstanding in all aspects and, wow, does Yoko ever deliver a fine vocal!

Her vocal sounds very heartfelt and soulful ... qualities that always attract us.

And your orchestra is tremendous. We'll never understand how you put all those
tracks together but they are so well mixed and layout an impressive soundstage
on our monitors. The sax is exceptional.

Well done by both of you!

At others said: outstanding.

If it wasn't for the more modern mix, you could easily convince me it came off an album.

But as much as I love saxophone, how about a flugelhorn lead instead? wink

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

Adding touches of the "real" to BIAB makes everything even better.
The vocal does get a little loud/aggressive at the 41 second mark but it's not significant other than that it runs counter to the smooth, warm, friendly sounds of the track.
Ms. K is as fab as the music.


Cheers
