You Got This (feat. Regina)

Lyrics and vocals by my lovely wife. :smile:

Probably my most ambitious song on iOS to date. Apps/synths used:
Auria Pro
SunVox
GeoShred
Zeeon
Moog Model 15
KQ Dixie
Neo Soul Keys Studio
VirSyn Tera Synth
Poison-202
and Auria's Lyra Metal Kit

I would love to have said that everything was 100% done on my iPad, but (as I said in another thread) there is nothing remotely close to Logic Pro's Flex Pitch for the iOS world, and since this was a vocal track I couldn't help but sneak over to the desktop for a few (hopefully transparent) Flex Pitch tweaks. :disappointed:

  • the pitch shifter isn't transparent, but transforming your wife's lovely voice into a synth o:)
    ... and you shrunk the Metal Kit, which is cute (imho) :)
    Of course it's a matter of taste and this song works with a pitch perfect voice - but the track definitely got enough charme to feature a natural sound.
    In case you wanted to hide 'flaws': fail. There are 'tuners' with way less artifacts out there.
    (I don't have Logic myself, but I'm quite shocked...)

    Thanks for the comments, I appreciate constructive criticism. Yeah I did intentionally shrink the metal kit to get what I wanted in the mix, although I didn’t quite intend “cute”. :smile:

    On the vocals, I wasn’t trying to hide most of the flaws, so maybe that wasn’t quite so bad a fail? The “synth” sound you’re referring to is probably the doubling I did on the chorus, although again “synth” wasn’t what I was going for. Flex Pitch was used in a few places to correct some slight pitch drift, it wasn’t a severe “I’m going to auto tune this whole thing”, so I’m thinking it was that doubling track creating that sound you’re referring to. Obviously it’s not being heard the way I wanted so I’ve got some learning to do. :smile:

    Thanks again, I really do appreciate the comments.

  • thanks for explaining the setup - yes, that's likely a side effect of the doubling (which I didn't expect) and not the pitch correction.
