except it's kind of misleading because I have a feeling this section is not going to make the final cut.
Which kinda sucks because . . . the rest of the song is really sucking, in my opinion. xD

Probably because I've been listening to it for too long. xD
Either way, this chunk doesn't fit in with the rest of it too well. I might as well take it out.

I'm learning to "be a man" and I'm trying very hard not to cry over every single thing I scrap, haha.
But it's very hard, it's very very hard, I naturally want to stuff everything in but I can't do that, there's a limited amount of time, man, before the listener turns it off, lol.

But yeah, just an update for ya'll -- I'm not dead.


. . . and . . . most creative preview image ever. Sorry, I don't feel like making a bit deal out of this so I just slapped whatever file I could find on my desktop on. :D

HEEEY

IT'S BEAUTIFUL IN MY OPINION.

I think it fits to be robotic because it's electronic anyways, so it's pretty much your own preference. I think you really do sound like a Vocaloid, but way better! You're definitely a better vocalist than me! XD

Come here I GIVES U HUGS :iconbrohugplz: :glomp: :thumbsup: GJ! :)

GURLLL . . . That's because I've only shown you the "best" part of the song that won't even be included in the final. But thank you. ^^; :hug:

I didn't originally plan for it to be that robotic though, but because it was a demo, I wanted everything pitch perfect for arrangement purposes. :)

But now that I've gotten myself so addicted to Auto-tune, it's going to be hard weaning off of it. :XD:

Really, I don't get it . . . People should stop complaining about musicians using Auto-tune and sounding robotic . . . dem complainers have no idea how fun it is, haha. xD :D

I suggest you use Newtone if you're doing songs with multiple keys. Auto-tune isn't very accurate but it can be handy at times (usually for my ambient bg vocals XD). I also use DC vocoder or the native FL Vocoder for a much more robotic effect.

I agree, gurl. Those people have no taste in electronic music. Auto-tuning just got mainstreamed because of Afro-american artists, but I think it's not bad at all. They're just, you know, close-minded. :)

Hmm, kewl. Newtone . . . I'll try that . . . I use Sonar as my DAW, and I'm using the V-Vocal auto-tune that comes with it. But I also have FL on my comp, and I use it sometimes for cool effects and stuff. I'll have to check it out sometime. ^^

Thanks! ^^;

Newtone is like Melodyne basically. It's all about which one you like using the most. haha

You're like a Vocaloid only with good pronunciation. :D I think you should turn up the vocals, but then again, I'm not sure if you're meaning for them to be front and center or not. Other than that, GREAT. Are you doing manual pitch correction for the robotic effect? The notes sound almost too precise for something where you'd just set a scale and let it automatically find the pitches. Unless of course, you're just a great vocalist to begin with. haha

Stop uncovering my sneaky acts ... I was trying to hide the random sounds in the background by turning it down and reverberating stuff. xD

And thanks! ^^

I'm using V-Vocal, the autotune that came with Sonar. It's pretty cool. Doesn't sound as natural as Melodyne though, adds way to much saturation. In V-Vocal, I just manually draw the lines in where the note should be, and it just snaps, rigid and cold. Maybe 'cause I turned the Vibrato all the way down, haha. I got a trial of Melodyne and it seems to work better, I just used V-Vocal because it's a demo and I just slapped something on. :D

Lol, no, the original was . . . disgusting.
I'm so thankful we live in a world with all these digital cheats. ;P

How do YOU usually do it in Melodyne for finished songs? The only thing I find annoying about Melodyne is how you have to do that "syncing" process or whatever, where you play the raw audio once so it can "import." Listening to the sound of my own uncorrect voice. Hurts. lol

Not sure what you mean by "syncing". lol I just use Melodyne as a stand-alone application and export to WAV....Then import the pitch corrected WAV files into FL.

So basically, right click original WAV file > Open With > Melodyne - then do all my editing. When I'm done editing, File > Export as Audio. Then open FL and import the audio.

Sorry, I just explained the same thing twice in different words. haha For me, the annoying thing about Melodyne is that you have to chop sibilant ( [link] ) sounds from every word that you have them in, otherwise, they become noticeably distorted.
