    Seeking Female Vocalist to complete this song

    I know there used to be, back in the old, old days. (Remember Ona?) But I'm afraid, just as with women in general, the good ones are out of my league. 😪 Thanks kloon. I might try the Bandlab thing. I don't know exactly how it works, but I know there is some sort of collaboration setup for musicians to share and work with each other.

    Seeking Female Vocalist to complete this song

    Wow, oookay... the search continues then. I'll probably just start up again with my second favorite passion, smoking. I'm much better at that anyway. 🙄
  3. [Previously posted in the Coffee House forum] I wrote this song for a friend to sing, she's got a great voice but for reasons I won't get into she is unable to work on it at this time. I wrote it with a bluesy female vocalist in mind, plus if anyone has ever heard me sing, you'll know I prefer working with vocalists. 😉 If you are (or know anyone that you can recommend) please let me know. I posted the song below. It's a rough draft, and the lyrics have been updated since I originally recorded it. (just minor changes here and there) It is a political song, so depending on your personal politics, that may be a factor for working on it. Thanks for listening.

  4. As suggested by James G, I'm going to move this over to the songs forum, hopefully for better results. I don't know how to delete this post, so maybe one of the moderators could do that for me. Thanks!
  5. I'm not sure if this is the right forum to post this in, but I figure it's pretty safe in the Coffee House... I wrote this song for a friend to sing, she's got a great voice but for reasons I won't get into she is unable to work on this with me at this time. I wrote it with a bluesy female vocalist in mind, plus if anyone has ever heard me sing, you'll know I prefer working with vocalists. So for vocals my preferences would be in this order: 1- Bluesy female vocalist, 2- Any decent female vocalist, or 3- a decent male or female vocalist. As a secondary collaboration, I would also be interested in a electric blues lead guitarist to do the guitar solo part. If you are (or know anyone that you can recommend) any of the above, please let me know. I posted the song below. It's a rough draft, and the lyrics have been updated since I originally recorded it. (just minor changes here and there) It is a political song, so depending on your personal politics, that may be a factor for working on it. The guitar solo begins at around 4:20 and lasts about 50 seconds. Thanks again! "A Man Without Love" https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13819676

    New Melodyne Patch

    I have Melodyne Studio, but haven't had much luck with adjusting the formants. It just makes things sound worse. I think we need "The Huge Book of Melodyne Tips". 😁

    New Melodyne Patch

    I think I tried that before a long time ago. I usually have it set to "Melodic" for a single vocal track. I seem to remember the other choices either didn't work or didn't sound as good. I might try the Universal algorithm and see if that improves anything. Thanks!

    New Melodyne Patch

    Any improvement in sound quality? Whenever I lower a (vocal) note, even just one semitone, the audio sounds more muffled that the original recording. Going up the scale doesn't seem to make things sound worse, only going down. It's been like that for a long time. I emailed Celemony about it, and they said they never experienced that and wanted me to send them a sample (which I never got around to doing yet). I figured if they didn't know about this problem, they're either lying or it's just me having this problem. Since my vocals aren't that great to begin with, I usually apply Melodyne to the entire track, as a track FX.

    M-Spec 4 Re-worked Theme (Updated for 2019.7)

    Hopefully these preview images are a big larger than the ones originally posted. EDIT: Nope, sorry. Even when I click on the (+) enlarge symbol, they remain the same size as the preview images. But at least you have a few different views, including the background image.

    M-Spec 4 Re-worked Theme (Updated for 2019.7)

    Yes, it reminds me of the colorful curtain used on the old Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. And I LOVE this theme. It's my new favorite.....great job, thank you Matthew White!
