I spent nine hours today working on my Miku V4X English cover of "Lost One's Weeping." My god. Part of me
wants to weep. I've spent at least
sixty hours on this over the last couple months. Each section of the song seems to take twice as long as the one before it. I might just give up on the dual vocal effect on the chorus at 1:15
of the original song. I tried every combination of compressor, reverb, delay, chorus, gate, filter, and EQ I have and can't come up with anything that sounds right.
It turns out that V3 Miku English sounds too similar to V4 Miku English to just have them sing in thirds over top one another without a bunch of adjustment. I'm debating composing my own vocal harmony for the chorus. But I think my tuning on Miku sounds powerful enough to just sing it solo.
The timing on the words of the last section have been giving me problems. And then there's a part where she hits a high B4. I really want her to yell it with emphasis, but she starts losing the power in her voice at that high of a pitch. I've been messing with parameters and plugins to see if I can change that. I haven't tried using Miku V4 Solid yet, because first I wanted to see if I could do it using only her English voicebank.
I have a headache and my eye is twitching, so I need to stop for today.
