Nice one Essesq!
Will try to work something on this one probably i will play with some fx on your voice :D

That would be nice. I tried to apply some myself, just for my own amusement, because I would only post a slightly eq-d vocal for others to work with. Unfortunately Cubase wouldn’t let me apply the vocoder it has on board. I think it may require some outboard computing power which I don’t have.
I’ll have to take that up with my technical adviser.

Honestly this whole concept of a spoken word piece being turned into a piece of music is alien to me. I have no idea how to make a pell that is usable. I know I pitched this one pretty obviously, but if it doesn’t float your boat, leave it on the shore to bask in the sun :-).

I am not too familiar with Cubase’s Vocoder plug-in (I use Vokator myself), but if you put it on an audio track with your voice, it still needs a second signal. You could add a midi track and route its output to the Vocoder plug-in (don’t forget to set the vocoder’s mode to midi or midi+ext). This way you should be able to play your audio through the midi track. I didn’t try it myself, but that’s one way Vokator works and it should be fairly common practice for vocoder fx. I hope this helps. I didn’t want to get too technical, mostly because I don’t know the details myself. ;-) Good luck.

Makes sense to me. I had no idea how vocoders worked. I just want to turn on the effect and have it work :-). I shall consult with my Cubase mentor, but thanks for the explanation, and the rec on the track :-).

This would be excellent for remixes. The subject lends itself to that for sure.

Ay up, bit saucy this one… ‘hot bodies’ as a key word… blimey :-)

Club mix anyone… Did you ever get one?
So I’m clear, you write these readings?

Its all good esseq, I said a while ago that you’d turned me to more poetry based sampled as opposed to melodic and I’m certainly enjoying listening to the various spoken word pella’s this site has to offer…

Great work, I’ll check out more of your stuff.

Ay up? Im sitting across from the person that taught me that phrase many years ago :-).

You’re funny. Hot bodies … you never spent a summer in Philadelphia, it’s purely a matter of air temperature, I assure you :-).

And no, I never got my club mix of this one ..but I’ve been stunned by what I did get. And yes I do write all my own material. Words are my real tool of trade.

I have posted a few remixes here too. I have high expectations for my next bit of music and nothing has reached that level yet. I am now suffering from computer problems (had to borrow a laptop to reply to you) so what else I can do in the near future is anyone’s guess. Pity too because I found a new mic yesterday and now I’m sinking money into the computer :-(.

Thanks for your comment. I appreciate it a lot.
