Hello, forum friends

I would like to post a song by Vocaloid, Hatsune Miku for the first time in a while.
In order to post the song, I asked the arrangement and production to a junior member of the same music circle.
I made a demo sound source by BIAB and sent it to her.
She recreated it using only MIDI, and sent it back to me.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Title: 星に願いを (Translation: Wishing Upon A Star)
Vocal: 初音ミク (Hatsune Miku, Vocaloid)

Link of MIDI Version:
https://soundcloud.com/animarorecords/wishing-upon-a-star

All the accompaniment played with Cubase built-in VST instruments
Except Piano played with Ivory The Grand(Steinway) and Harp played with EastWest Symphonic Orchestra
Scored and Produced by Lis, my music friend

Link of Demo version by BIAB:
https://soundcloud.com/animarorecords/wishing-upon-a-star-demo-version

Style is _CTPNGC.STY
RealTracks in style: ~518:Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 085
RealTracks in style: 2024:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm CountryJohn Ev 085

RealTracks in style: 1856:Cello, Background PopCountry Ev 085
RealDrums in Style: NashvilleEven8^1-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

Summary of lyrics:

Please come towards where you hear clapping hands
Nostalgic scent is there
Please take me again to the place we first met

I closed my wounds while killing my heart
My wish is only one
Please forget me and don't forget me

Please take me again to the place we first met

When the stars fall and disappear
The night secretly fulfills someone's wishes

Please take me again to the place we first met

Please come towards where you hear clapping hands
Nostalgic scent is there

I gave the demo version a listen 1st...nice work building your template.
The MIDI version is a little more lively though it threatens to absorb Miku on occasion.
Well written, well arranged and well performed - AS USUAL.

I did wonder if you're ever tempted to do a Baby Metal version of your songs sometime...the Vocaloid caused me to wonder even more so.

Very nice, Shigeki Adachi. I like the development and your explanation. To me this shows how good this software is. Maybe I didn't give the MIDI version enough consideration, but my ears overrode my desire. (The piano sounds great and Lis did a brilliant job.) The BiaB demo is so much more pleasing. You know I am a big fan of what you do, and this song is another that deserves respect. Hatsune Miku sounds superb. Thank you for posting and showing us examples.

Great melody that kept my interest throughout the piece. The MIDI is very good. Excellent work as usual.

The Vocaloid continues to fascinate me. It sounds real to me. Maybe I should duet with a Vocaloid sometime.

I liked both versions, I don't prefer one over the other.

Beautiful melody and arrangement.

Hi Shigeki,

This is a lovely song - good lyrics and well sung.

Also - you have done a lot of work on the production and mix and everything sounds great.

Well done
Best Regards
Nigel

Lis did a fantastic job with this! The Vocaloid is a bit too bright for my taste, but that's not something you've got control over. (Eventually I hope to convince you to try SynthV out).

I'd have also gone with more of a '70s dampened 'tea towel' snare sound, since it fits the style a bit better.

But that's just me being super-picky, since everything else is great. laugh

Honestly, it's hard to hear the BiaB version after Lis' arrangement. It's fine, but very generic.

After hearing it at the slower tempo, the BiaB version feels rushed.

A very pleasant song, and a wonderful arrangement.

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

David,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
And many thanks for listening to the both versions.
I am really glad you like this tune and Lis's Arrangement.

I always much appreciate your precious advices.
I visited the site of '70s dampened 'tea towel' snare sound.
These sounds are no longer used now, but I also liked them very much at the time.
I would like to try to use it again if I have the opportunity.
I would also like to try to use SynthV in my works from the next time onwards.
I am very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.
