TinyLittleSong (Extended Version)
Here is a 20 second song for whenever you need to remember how long 20 seconds is. Because WB has a rule about minimum length, this is the extended version, but the chorus is still 20 seconds.

This was really beautiful!  Definitely sounds like that Iguana's singing voice.

Please explain the origins of the guitar heard in this piece.  ::skeptical face::

March 30, 2020 12:35 am

I love this, lol. It's actually a really cool 20 second song! super creative.

March 30, 2020 12:38 am

The chord selection on the second verse is freaking me out, but I guess even zombies should wash their hands.

Cool stuff man, love the change of pace.  Thats real cello, right?  Or if its a software instrument it sounds very convincing.  Either way, sounds great.

That's why I asked!  I am constantly amazed by what you can do with virtual instruments.  I need your help to make a Chuck E. Cheese Animatronic Orange Drink band and have them play virtual instruments LIVE

Love this! Compliments on precious arrangement, the warbling vocals, and the incredibly authentic use of virtual instruments!
If you can make 1 twenty-second song this good, I bet you could make 20 1-second songs and they'd all be hits. big_smile

Super vocals and EMOTIONAL cello. This is going to be stuck in my head whenever I wash my hands now...

You have such a unique genius, your tunes are so surprising and unlike anything I've ever heard, and so absolutely competent in the way they're executed. Pleasure doing business with you sir.

As much as I'd like to see that, we could just wear animatronic costumes and start a super band.

I didn't want to sing for this song, my vocals were just temp to help with re-synthesizing the robot voice, but since I needed more filler, they worked out better than I expected... I might have to do more singing!

The robot vocals is from Google's TTS, resynthesized using Image Line's NewTone. It's a painstaking process since NewTone's tools aren't as streamlined as they could be, has odd quirks, and several bugs that can slow things down. Because of this, I usually record my own reference vocals which really helps speed up the process getting the timing/pitching down (Human singing is usually all over the place both in pitch and time). I wasn't going to use it originally (didn't even record in a quiet space) but it helped pad out the length for WB!
This kinda of fiddly work is better suited for stuff like deep learning neural networks, and I'm trying to figure out some sort of solution using available models, unfortunately weekday work doesn't leave me with a lot of time to experiment!

Between the strings and guitar totally had no clue it wasn't acoustically recorded.  The vocal melodies are super catchy.  Love when both sets of vocals come together and do that "second veeeeerse" part.  The melody hits just right.  Oh and I should go wash my hands!

I think something like 99% of all my tracks are completely simulated or synthesized! I would love to do some live recordings but I'm usually writing these songs down to the last minute!

Great piece of music.  Really enjoyed it!
