We have "Red Album collection

We have "Red Album collection" topic so it would be great to have a general topic named like "Our collections" where we could share all of our Aaliyah treasures irrespective of from which era they are ♥

We purposely did the threads

We purposely did the threads by different era's so that it would be easier for fans to find collections from each particular era. But we will definitely keep that in mind for the future! 😉

Idea

If you guys could get them in nice quality, I suggest we have a "The Red Acapellas" topic. It could help people who want to produce remixes and make vocal analysis videos. Perhaps it can also help the YouTuber MICO with his Aaliyah videos on her vocal range.

Thanks for the feedback

Thanks for the feedback Phishebeight, we'll definitely consider that since Aaliyah's music has always been important to us on a global scale to share with like minded fans. Would you be able to share a few examples from this YouTuber if you don't mind? Do they have anything Aaliyah related?

MICO has a lot of Aaliyah

MICO has a lot of Aaliyah related content, mostly talking about her vocal range and anaylizing it. Here are some video links:

...and so it begins...aaliyah

...and so it begins...aaliyah AI

(Aaliyah Ai) I Just Died by Amerie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C21foinO8uk

requests are hit or miss depending on the original singer and if there's too many vocal overlays in background vocals or not

the original demos may or may not work depending on the quality of the singer to match that of aaliyah's vocal range or audio

brief tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asDIG7Qvjgw

go to this discord and search for aaliyah, make your own or ask one of the usernames who already did the aaliyah AI to make more requests https://discord.gg/aihub

[AI] Aaliyah - Draw The Line

[AI] Aaliyah - Draw The Line (More Than A Woman) Demo from Static Major

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnjdIp2BKjA

I know the forum and purists are divided on AI but trying to use it for constructive projects and redoing the demos like 'natural' and 'ceo' etc...I had to practice on some easy songs with available acapellas before I got the hang of the workflow on how to clean the vocals and massage/swap the words so they come out pronounced correctly before the main ones took priority. https://www.youtube.com/@everythingaaliyah38/videos

some ideas look good on paper but may still sound like the original singer because the accenting/pitch of the original words may make your brain still think of the original singer and not an AI cover version, which is why male songs to the female version and vice versa still sounds fresh. The AI fails at sultry/breathy voices or songs with too much vocal overlay and comes out staticky/distorted/wrong pitch, even after removing background vocals sometimes.

The Aaliyah AI model is mostly trained from her 1996 official acapellas because of her untimely death made a lot of Red album acapellas/vinyl/remixes suspended from being released to the public

Sandy, thanks for responding

Sandy, thanks for responding me, I was trying to get a response so that's why I wrote a blurb underneath my previous post and not anywhere else to be spam-conscious, but do you by any chance know mambalilsab? the person who runs the French Aaliyah blog/social media fan club? https://maximum-aaliyah.skyrock.com/3167455364-Ecoutez-les-demos-enregistrees-pour-Aaliyah.html I emailed her and I think she was spooked by all this AI talk. I posted on my channel about her snippets as a last resort to get her attention with the sample work I've previously done for her to perhaps change her mind for her to valiantly go somewhere with studio equipment to rip the tapes into HQ audio for all fans to enjoy. The current version is just a LQ camera recording from a cassette speaker-system audio.

A couple of us AI creators (w/ https://www.youtube.com/@BlGMOOD/videos and https://www.youtube.com/@m4kh3/videos) are trying to get a hold of her to see if she would share her Aaliyah demos in CDQ for us to AI Aaliyah's voice...add me back on discord if you have it jensyao#3701 (w/ Big Mood (AiCovers.com)#7942 and khi#1419) we need to catch up. Props for all that you have done
