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

Your arrangement skills are second to none.
You know how to manipulate those RTs into the perfect backing band and mix.
Loved it.
Thanks, I appreciate the positive feedback! smile

Thanks!

To be honest, it surprises me how much emotion these voices seem to put into the parts. Saros has a bit of a Michael McDonald vibe (without that soulful rasp) going on, so I couldn't resist using him here.

I appreciate you stopping by to comment. smile

I'm sort of amazed myself. Sometimes things just work out right.

Wonderful how these AI vocals work together. That must have been a lot of work to get them sing like this.
I'll let you onto a secret: it's not as much work as you might suspect, but it's not nearly as easy as just singing it yourself.

Since I had a cold at the time, and no useful voice, it was really nice to have a tool that could do the singing for me. Especially since it did such a nice job.

I join all compliments given to you here. You made a very good sounding song!
Thanks! Now it's time to try to write another one. wink

I appreciate you taking the time to stop and comment!

Why in the world would I be angry about that?

It's so much nicer than my default comment of "Nice song" that I use when a song speaks for itself.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping and commenting. smile

Thanks!

And it's probably best not to read my comments unless you're looking for a good sleep aid. wink

Surprisingly (to me) the song didn't take the weeks of slogging to write. But then, I was stuck at home with a cold, so that gave me some focus.

I appreciate you stopping by to comment!

Don't confuse me for a Cro-Magnon just because I'm using a different set of tools. If you take the vocals out of the equation, I suspect our methods aren't dissimilar.

The synth voices sound so real. The timbre and intonation in their vocals lend to a human quality. And that can be revealed only by the talent and precision of the input agent (of course, that would be you).
Thanks!

But... I've got the advantage that I can write to the voices. When I put together a melody, I'm generally inside of SynthV working it out, even if the lyrics as just "la". So I can hear if the voice will sound good singing the line. If not, I'll change the line.

After the melody line is down, I work on the lyric, trying to figure out what all those "la"s are trying to sing, so to speak. So I generally hear the timbre and intonation first, not the other way around. Sometimes that's a brick wall from a songwriting perspective.

And sometimes, I get lucky abd can actually figure out what it's trying to sing.

Beautiful lyric and mesmerizing melody. The sound is delicate and fragile. Congrats on such a fine production!
Thank you very much! laugh

TOP shelf.
Thanks - I appreciate it! smile

I did this (and the prior song) while I had no voice, because everyone in the house was coughing up a storm. So I was happy to have any voice, even a synthetic one.

So much to like!

- Excellent blend of lead and harmony

- Lead sounds like a great pop diva

- Very complex band that sounds excellent, every in it’s place and very effective

- Love the sax outro and your instrumental performances and fx

- Love the lyric that covers many kinds of calls and the return to home

- If we took one look at that many tracks in a DAW our heads would spin ... for hours

- We ALWAYS enjoy the “blah blah blah’s” 😊

Epic!

J&B
