6th Example: LEON wants LOLA!
May, 31, 2004.


New example is called "Please Touch Me Lola". We now tried to achieve erotic intonations using LEON, expanding range of singing sounds to the maximum and giving the voice almost "noise-breathing" character. This example is also remarkable for not using any samples other than LEON, i.e. Bass Line and Drum sounds were produced by LEON. Apart from main melodic parts (high and low) this example also has two voices in medium and high register, performed with some shade of ethnic singing.

For all melodic parts (excluding Bass Line) PMStyles have calculated:

  • Velocity changes
  • Auto phrasing, legato and pauses
  • Harmonics curve
  • Pitch Wheel gliding
  • Parameters of "Vibrato Objects"
  • Noise curve
  • Resonance 03 Band Width and Amplitude curves
  • Resonance 04 Band Width and Amplitude curves

No manual editing at all!

To analyze the result yourself you can take the following files in mp3 and *.mid format:

Comments by Alexei Ustinov, CTO Jasmine Music Technology

Oh yeah, I'm sure that my students, especially girls, would have blushed after hearing this example! Well, it looks like we are moving in the right direction - with every new example more and more shades of sounding can be obtained from LEON, which means that when YV Enhancer is ready, any user will be able to adjust sounding within wide range, and all we will have to do is to concentrate on developing Vocaloid PMStyles.

For this example I have used Bass Line and "Ah ah ah" from Leonid Rikh's "XG Shamanism", because first "erotic" intonations were achieved by him in this song using usual GM/XG synths with PM as far back as in 1997. So, thanks, Leonid!
