Mac computer voice Kyoko (tuned and pitched in Melodyne) singing a (English) news report about establishment Republicans freaking out over Donald Trump.  G Major.

I really love the baritone-sounding stuff. Great track. It's interesting that the Pubs are freaking.

I like how the vocals sound kind of child-like as most political whining is pretty childish. 

March 21, 2016 1:27 am

Interesting. You can do some cool stuff with Melodyne.

i really like the chopped up, almost percussive voices! and the cat choir as well wink

Love the idea. Sounds good.

I'm curious how it would've sounded with vocals by Hatsune Miku - I'm thinking this is cheap as in 'no extra cost', not cheap as in inferior.

Funny how certain sounds can remind you of other songs.  One of the syllables made me think of the Beastie Boys' "Sounds of Science" the booowww part smile
Nice use of the vocal snips!

LMAO I want to laugh but also cry for my country. Really enjoying the whining cat noises

Ha, yes! This is awesome fun. Great idea, love the context, title. What a crazy and frankly frightening political mess that's unfurling here now. You're amazing with vocal manipulations - inspiring me to want to learn more!

this is one of the best things ever

Would be a great soundtrack to any of his "speeches." Ever listened to "Lurch" by Pole, btw? Also a nice cat sample.

But srsly, you are the Master of Melodyne. Hatsune should ask you for a remix!

March 22, 2016 10:16 pm

Awesome, quirky track!! And ughhhhh, this election year...

March 23, 2016 11:21 am

This is bizarre! I like bizarre smile

Pure fun. Thank you, Jim.

Exactly.  I'm digging the voice manipulations and the disappointed cats as well!
