To the 3 kind members that gave the nuce ratings and comments for this song, thanks. I learned a lot doing this song. The vocaloid file was slightly off on the timing. One day I’m going to do an improved version of this one, though it is probably still my best vocaloid effort. And Jimbo, the file was just a gm midi file. I used nothing special with it. Didn’t even have reverb with my studio to make the mp3. Thanks again you 3.

Gray – are you going to buy Miriam when it (sorry -she) comes out? If she’s anything like the real Miriam, she might be a good enough excuse to revisit this classic tune. It’s a right good vocal(oid) workout and I’d like to hear you apply your not inconsiderable experience of the vocaloid editor to this song with a less skinny bitch in tow <img class=” /> . Also I know that you’re aware of it, but could the timing problems that sometimes creep into your covers here and there be a result of trying to render sustained vocal passages that are too long for the vocaloid to really cope with? I now break my wave files down into individual lines and plonk them down onto the piano roll and then boot them about till they sound right. It’s amazing how far from the beats and bars they can be when they sound “right”. Takes bloody ages though…. Anyway, how about the Miriam version? You’ve already done most all of the “backroom” work! And don’t you ever sleep, by the way? :D

Sleep? not enough for sure. I want to hear actual midi demo’s of Miriam before I buy. The mp3 demos are too easy to alter for a good sound. The mp3 demos for Leon sounded great. No way those vocals came from a bare vocaloid file. I’m getting better sounds now, but not like their demos. I’m not dissappointed in buying Leon, but if I buy another vocaloid I want to be certain it will do what I expect of it.

Let me clear up what I said. I don’t think the demos I listened to are fake. I just think the Zero G and yamaha folks have a lot more equipment and expertise in making a crappy vocal sound good in wave form after rendering. I’m getting better at this myself, but am limited by equipment and knowledge. If I didn’t have Leon already, I would still buy the program even with what I know now of the vocaloid shortcomings.

I think it’s important to treat the raw vocaloid wav files at least as you would the dry recorded voice of a real singer. I know that most of the real (hah) singers I’ve worked with DON’T MIND <img class=” /> a wee tweak in the old wave editor to the odd <img class=” /> pitch error. Also, if you isolate their voice, take off the compression and the smidgeon of reverb that was added, leaving them “high and dry” they don’t like their friends to hear the results <img class=” /> Same for vocaloid i.e Lola laughs at Leon from the control room…. :D
