Palette Redo : 1 Years Improvement

Wow how long has it been since I updated , it feels like its been forever but it probably hasn’t been that long LOL. Anyways I’ll be adding another post to this blog about being another cover , surprise surprise. One of these days I will post something else , on what I have no idea but it’ll happen!

So I have officially been a youtaite for a year now and as a celebration I thought it would be fun to redo the first song I ever covered!

I uploaded on Jan.12, 2013 a cover of rock vocaloid song called Palette. This song is originally sung by Luka Megurine and was composed by Yuyoyupee. I remember hearing the utaite Hanatan’s version and falling in love with her voice and the song instantly. I also a fan of the piano version made by the popular fandubber Amanda Lee on youtube. though Hanatan outshines her in vocal power , she outdoes me as well.
Needless to say , this was like the 3rd song I ever learned in Japanese and so learning this song and being able to hit the high notes was a big deal for me. Also it was first attempt at mixing something so it was my first step into the youtaite community.

By the way this song is so loud , its impossible to hit the high notes without power so you have to be loud.
I really also like the idea of this song , describing life through colours so to speak.

This is the old version.

The mix was so bad , the vocals were loud in places and the and the instrumental was too loud. The harmonies were okay but competed with the main vocal line in volume balance. The use of effects though was really good. My vocals were really weak as well. I had barely managed to hit the notes.

Listening to the new version , the vocals are so much more powerful and clear. My pronunication more crisp and clear. I have expanded my range a lot , I also think I have developed my tone a lot more. I’m getting more distinct in each cover. The harmonies were perfect in this. A good balance between low harmonies and high ones. It all flowed so nicely and the timing was on beat. As for the mix , you can definitely hear the improvement. The balance is so much better from the harmonies to the instrumental! Also that last high note , it blows me away that I had hit it with ease.

I really enjoy the combination of this half operatic sounding voice with epic rock music. Its an interesting combination.

Anyways if you want the mp3 mesage me and I will send it. I will definitely be back to update soon with another cover. As usual enjoy the singing , feel free to comment. Enjoy the rest of your day/night everyone.Write to you again soon!
