Unlocked Girl (Robbi-985 Remix) ~ 6 Voice Style [originally by IOSYS]

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

Sorry about my large period of inactiveness for the past week! >_<

Here’s an updated version of my remix of Unlocked Girl by IOSYS! I called it “6 Voice Style”, since now, instead of just the 1 electronic voice, there are now 6 voices used, including a backing harmonizing voice (Miku Hatsune)! The other 5 voices are made using RealSinger on Virtual Singer, part of Melody Assistant. There’s also now a much cooler-sounding Distortion Guitar used during choruses.

Here’s the YouTube video, this time featuring my attempt at a full translation of all the lyrics, and 10% of your RDA of randomness near the end. Of course, this is in mono and at low quality. This time, I think I avoided typos and forgetting things in the credits. ><

The actual YouTube page is here - there’ll be comments there. ;P Of course, I don’t mind if you leave comments here at my blog either! ;)You can download the high-quality stereo MP3 of this “6 Voice Style” [6.48 MB] (or if that link doesn’t work, you can try this link, although it will be much slower, sorry). I’m also putting up the original MIDI for download [64 KB] which I made for this remix, which is at the heart of this MP3. Please note that the MIDI is not complete. Sorry about that. But it’s certainly better than nothing (well, probably). It does contain all parts of the song, by which I mean that just by copy-and-pasting things you can complete the song. But I didn’t do that to the MIDI – just to the final MP3′s audio. That’s why the MP3′s complete and the MIDI isn’t – I’m lazy. ;P

Ragnarok Battle Offline – Stage 2 Final Boss : MIDI + Rin Kagamine-Style

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

A year or so ago I made a MIDI out of the final boss of Stage 2 on the excellent game “Ragnarok Battle Offline”. Now I’ve found out about Vocaloid2. And the most recent voice to be released for Vocaloid2 is the second voice in the “character voice series”, Rin Kagamine (鏡音リン) , whose voice is apparently stronger than Miku’s (whose voice has been criticized as being too soft).

[Watch in HQ]

So! Since the overdriven guitars in the music are certainly meant to sound “strong”, I decided to give Rin the job of singing it to test the supposed “strength” in her voice. She doesn’t handle the low notes well (sounds like a puff and then electronic), but I have to say I was very impressed at how the voice handles the “screaming” high notes. So that Miku didn’t feel too left out (=P), I gave her the job of the harmonizing ‘backing’ guitar, with a cool little stereo flanger to make her voice easier to notice. I know the lyrics I made are kind of lame. I let the MIDI loop and play through once more by itself when it reaches the end. By the way, that overdrive guitar the MIDI uses was sampled from my brother (‘steeeven1′ on YouTube) playing his electric guitar.

You can grab the MP3 with the voices here! (2.76 MB, 2:34 length). You can download the MIDI which I made and used in the MP3 here (27.1 KB, 1:16 length).

Please leave a comment if you want to! :D

Bleeper Music Maker (revision 120)

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

This is the program I used to make the “Unlocked Girl” and “此処で逢ったが六十年目” so-called ‘bleeper music’. By this, I mean music made by the internal ‘PC speaker’ of a PC, made up of ‘beep’ noises (which is the only noise the PC speaker can produce).

I’ve been making the program for many months, and it’s not really complete, but I don’t think it ever will be. It’s certainly in a working state, so I’m putting it out to the public now. Actually, I did some time ago (when I released the Unlocked Girl video on YouTube nearly a month ago) .

You can download the latest version of Bleeper Music Maker here. I’ve just spent several hours completing a fairly big text file of info for it (included in the download!). So if you have a question, it will hopefully be answered there (feel free to ask if it wasn’t answered, of course! ^^). The download also contains several save-files of music (including the 2 I mentioned above).

Unlocked Girl [IOSYS] – Complete Remake! (‘Robbi-985 Remix’)

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

I finally completed this! I’ve been working on it since the 25th of December, and finally last night it was completed. I hope you like it. And I know there are several typos. >_<

Original YouTube page

I’d prefer it if you commented at that page, rather than here. That way, all comments will be in one place (even the comments left by people who didn’t find the video on this blog). There’s more info there too – just check the description! :D

Oh, and the high-quality stereo MP3 can be downloaded… right… here. (5.47 MB, 5 mins 10 secs) (Sorry about the slow download speed.)
