My Daughter Nina wanted to try this cover tune of a song from Crowded House. She played some electric piano which was doubled with the synth called ithaca vox. We tried a few settings with the voice correction slider and ended up with full throttle which resulted in a sort of computerized sound

She´s got a beautiful voice with lots of potential. Are you working with some kind of correction program?? Sounds if you´re doing that listening to the vox.

But I really like the simplicity of this and with some practice she will become a star...I´m sure...´cause the voice is very unique and beautiful.

Heja Norge !!

I love Crowded House. This is such a perfect pop song-- one of the best of that period. I am not sure I like the effects on the vocals-- never cared for vocal effex in general. The only time it's really been effective for me is with Imogen Heap. I think your daughter's probably has a beautiful voice without the effex...

That being said, it's a really nice and ethereal arrangement. Certainly adds a dreaminess to the song...

Good cover. Looking forward to hearing your daughter some more!

Excellent cover. Great singing although I must confess I'm not a fan of that vocal effect. I especially enjoyed the 'pads' in the latter half of the track.

I have to comment on this due to the fact that it was written by a New Zealander. Probably our only musical export of any note. We claim Pavlova and Kiwifruit but not the Bedingfield's.
Really like this version. I am with jdwyer on the feel of the song and also the vocal effects. Like the breathy instrument. What is it?

I used to love this song! It's incredibly hard to sing. Sang it with a band and they started in the wrong key by a *half* step. It went south, quickly. Corrected the key and everybody breathed a sigh of relief.

The vocal correction...actually makes this cover unique. I'm going to go out on a limb and say Finn would grin and nod, like I'm doing now.

ahhh hahhh hahh! sbyootifull! really great rendition. her vox is probably fine true... but the geek in me loves that overkill pitch correction sound... I think I might actually like this one better than the original, but it might be just that I am so used to the other... thanks for sharing with us, you two! downloading

Interesting. The more I listened to this the more I was engaged by the underlying tension. The sterile (synthesized) innocence of the vocal adds a certain poignancy - even despair - to the lyric's message of encouragement and hope. The image in my mind was of a child of winter encased in ice telling me to carry on. Tender and heartbreaking. I thnk you have made some subtle, yet brave choices here, although I don't know if any of this was your intention. I guess that's what happens when we put something out there. We risk losing a bit of ownership when others embrace our work.

Interesting interpretation you make there mojo, it is true that the ice feel and the innocence builds on each other. Her voice grows upon the ice feel... it lifts the expression I think... except for that, I had no winterpictures in my mind. Thx for your interesting analyze!

Thor and Nina you've made some beautiful music here!
This is difficult song to sing but you pulled it off in grace.

Now for our daily comments bulletin:
Could you please try to use voice automation instead of the voice correction tool? It's too good of a voice to be distorted like that.

While listening I noticed that Nina's voice was recorded using a lot of reverb. So her voice is scattered through-out the speakers. This gives me a feeling of Nina VS Keyboards thing. Try to narrow the voice dead center and see what happens...

Ohh...one last thing could you (Thor) try to sing some backing vocals? They shure make a song come to REAL real life.

thank you for your patience...

Now this truly is a beautiful production to me because of the unique combinations of sound which create instruments that I may have never heard before.

What I don't really go for is the vocal correction that seems to have been applied on one note in each line. It sounds like a wrong note, and then about 10 cents flatter. Somewhere between here and there, and it just didn't jive with my ear.

Otherwised great vocalist, and loved the instrumental work.
