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,

Deej

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!

J&B

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.

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.)
