November 08, 2022  -  User Showcase Song - The Colors Of Nature

I had composed chords and melody for this song five years ago but hadn't written any lyrics and there was no form yet. This year there was an Autumn song contest on a local forum, and I felt this song had suitable Autumn mood, I kept the working title and wrote the lyrics inspired by the title and the beauty of nature during early October days. I have tens of unfinished songs just waiting to be finished, luckily BIAB is a great sketch pad and an archive for them

You may get into the mood also by watching the video (I have captured all animal video clips except the bear and humans during the last two years here on my walking trips).

I originally planned to use Natalie for vocals, but at the same time I had acquired also Weina and I had both of them on different tracks. Accidentally, I had left Weina's voice one octave higher than Natalie's on the first verse and when I heard Weina singing, I immediately fell in love with her voice and selected her as the lead singer. She sounded even better than I could imagine a real vocalist to sing. I can't hear anything artificial in her voice, please tell me if you hear. And she sounded that good without any modification on her voice settings, Natalie seemed to need modifications on her vibrato settings. Of course, I had to work hard on the timing of notes, this is not an easy song to sing, but I'm happy with the end result. Still, I'm interested in hearing comments on possible fluency issues.

Natalie and Weina are singing the second voices in the choruses. By default, Synthesizer V uses la syllable for each note and when Weina and Natalie were singing together after the bridge part after the second chorus, those la-la's were so harmonious in my ears that I didn't want to write any lyrics for those notes, amazing technology that could sing a phonebook and it would sound the sweetest thing ever smile I probably will write a song for Weina in which she is singing her love to me, just because it is possible and she feels so real (similar to the movie Her...) wink I love also the Chinese color in her accent. I really hope you like her voice as much as I do

(BTW. this song won that contest)
