This free download of 1,338 female vocal clips opened up a new door in R6 for me: http://www.musicradar.com/news/tech/...-217833/41#!41
A tip from my working with it: the 1,338 .wavs are comprised of really about 170 different phrases that the vocalist does six to ten different “styles” of each phrase - soft, medium, hard, etc., so the way that I “created a song” was by looking for a texted phrase I liked, then playing it to see if it “fit” and then selecting the soft/hard/etc. for the best fit. Then, you do your magic with R6 by razoring, pitch and duration (stretch) adjustments to get how you wan
t the vocalist to actually sing it. So, you end up being the "lyricist" and melody maker as well.
The .wavs are also arranged in six subfolders by genres (including opera!)
; I used a total of 12 clips from the Rock and Trance folders. So, glance through the texted phrases first to get a feel for what’s available and then start playing the clips for selection.
If you’d like to hear the result of my having a blast with it, 100% of the vocals here are from my doing Reason razor/stretch/splice/etc. wonders on 12 clips from that free download: http://waldenroadmusic.bandcamp.com/track/take-me-on-a-ride
