(As with all my vocal pieces, the 'singer' is Miriam Stockley - or at least my computer trying to sound like her - sorry, Miriam!)

As with the other instruments, I write the notes and tell the software which word to sing with each note. Easy? No! The problem is then to try and make the resulting vocals actually sound like a real person. The software was written to suit the Japanese ear which does cause some problems with certain words and computer-generated singing always sounds a bit robotic before you work on mixing it. That takes a lot of time working with EQ, compression, reverb and so forth. Once I have the vocals sounding vaguely reasonable, I then add the vocals to the music. And start all over again because various frequencies will conflict! Panning helps but I still haven't worked out how to fully solve the problem of the vocals being slightly muffled. If only Miriam lived next door!
So yes, all the sound you hear is totally computer generated. I just have to compose it!
