First Chinese cover of a song that I've wanted to sing for years.  I searched for an off vocal, but just couldn't find one D:

There are multiple versions of this song, but the one I went with is the Cantonese and Mandarin version, so I switch back and forth between the two xD

Song is 講不出的告別 (rough translation: unsaid farewell? >w<)
Original singers are 谭咏麟 (Alan Tam) and 刀郎 (Dao Lang)

Hiii~ So I checked out your newest cover, Karakuri Pierrot! Just going to leave you some feedback.

First off, I think you may have used a biiiit too much reverb on your voice. It makes you sound super echo-y, which doesn't fit the piano of the song and also a bit distracting. Something that puts your voice both closer to the sound and warmer would probably work better.

I like the little voice twists (? if that's what you call them)! They were a nice touch. An example of what I'm talking about is at about umm 1:11. There were a few other places, too. They put a nice KaRei flair to them.

I would also soften your attack on certain syllables, like "boku wo noseTE" and "shiraNAI" at the middle of the song. They came across a bit harsh. I think it would put more emotional impact into the song if you were to soften them up a bit. >w<b It'll vary up your voice a bit, too! Right now, it's coming across a bit monotone.

3:35 "kimi no matsu" what you did there = worked really well! :Db

Also, I'm not sure if it's something you can't fix or not, but some of your syllables sound really slurred together? Especially in the last chorus. Are you able to enunciate more? I have that issue sometimes myself, too, where I think I'm doing okay, but then I go back and hear it and it's like, whoawhatwasIsaying @_@.

There were also a few mild pitch issues, too, but it wasn't super noticeable, except in a few parts. If you want me to point them out though, I can edit my post for you. Either way. Pitch. Ew. How to sing on pitch. Someone please teach me.

Anyway. Hoooooooopefully this was of use! Keep it up! :D

ahhhhhhh thank you for such detailed feedback <3

i've always thought that something sounded a little off to me (it didn't sound like my voice was blending well with the off vocal, in a way?) with the final mix, but i couldn't put my finger on it? xD  and now that you've pointed out, it could've been the reverb xD  i have to admit, this was a rather quick cover, so i just slapped on a lot of reverb and some compression and that was that >___<  i'll try to keep an eye on that next time though!

I like the little voice twists (? if that's what you call them)! They were a nice touch. An example of what I'm talking about is at about umm 1:11. There were a few other places, too. They put a nice KaRei flair to them.


ahh i don't know what they're (the voice twists) called either XD  but thank you!

I think it would put more emotional impact into the song if you were to soften them up a bit. >w<b It'll vary up your voice a bit, too! Right now, it's coming across a bit monotone.

i didn't notice that before, but i do now >___<  i think it probably ties in a little with my enunciation problem x.x  maybe knowing that i have trouble enunciating, i overcompensate on other syllables? D:  whatever the reason, now that i know i do that, i'll add that to the list of things i have to work on! *^*9

3:35 "kimi no matsu" what you did there = worked really well! :Db

thank you!

I have that issue sometimes myself, too, where I think I'm doing okay, but then I go back and hear it and it's like, whoawhatwasIsaying @_@.

aaaaaand here is a huge problem i know i have >___<  i noticed a long time ago that although i have no problem (that i'm aware of) speaking irl, whenever i speak or sing into a mic, i find that i can't enunciate properly D:  when i sing in english, i find it EXTREMELY noticeable.  i think it's less obvious when i sing in japanese or chinese, but you can still hear it in places.  if you have an idea on how i can improve my enunciation, please do tell QwQ

There were also a few mild pitch issues, too, but it wasn't super noticeable, except in a few parts. If you want me to point them out though, I can edit my post for you. Either way. Pitch. Ew. How to sing on pitch. Someone please teach me.

yes, pitch >__<  another enemy of mine xD  it feels like i've been trying to improve this for some time now but i never feel like i'm getting anywhere D:  i think i really need a vocal coach but i can't afford lessons right now QwQ

Anyway. Hoooooooopefully this was of use! Keep it up! :D

this was very welcome and much needed feedback, thank you again! <3
