xD No I think I agree with you in thinking no-one is going to sing that song :P

The song I'm going to sing is the song I won the last Talent Scouting at my school with xD and I should really pick up practising the lyrics again... fast lyrics... real fast...

One of the judges, who commented on me, just talked Japanese... O.o

Well....

You don't have to be a forum goer or irc goer right?

Cause my daughter belted out the high note in Lilium yesterday and scared the crap out of me...

She'll probably be entering...

Yep, anybody can join in; which is great, since I barely count as a forumgoer myself, only showing up to talk in the KaraCom threads. Plus my brother and some friends will be entering this time (provided I keep pestering them to actually get their recordings done).

I'm looking forward to hearing your daughter's entry, cheyanne; and yours, too!

Best of luck to everyone who's going to enter; may you be free from voice-affecting sickness and may your vocal cords cooperate. (Especially now, with the air starting to be all pollen-y.)

Yeah, let's not discuss how often I'm using the albuterol inhaler lately LOL

How I wish the DKC was coming up sooner. I believe I have the perfect duet recording (just need someone as good to record the other half )... I wonder if the potential partners I approached months ago after the last DKC are still interested. PLEASE CONTACT ME!!!

As for this solo karacomp.... hmm...

Awww! How cute! She takes after her mommy.

I have another question for everyone: Does anyone know a good way to make it so "P" sounds while recording aren't so harsh? I'm recording a song that has a few harsh p sounds in it and it always pops. I can't get it to stop. >_< It's annoying because I'll just be listening and it sounds ok and then it's just like *PPPPPFUZZCRAP*...or something. I keep re-recording trying to fix it and it's the same every time.

Try to take some distance from the mic and, at the same time, turn the mic input somewhat higher. Then you have the same volume recorded, but your breath, while pronouncing P, does not reach the mic.

At least, that's what I do



Hope that helps.

A pop filter is exactly what you need!

A link for a do-it-yourself pop filter is here, but you can go one step cheaper than that ($2) by simply covering a coat hanger with pantyhose and suspending it from the ceiling with string and duct tape. Works for me, at least.

@llama, if your mic is not too unidirectional, try overhead recording. This assumes the mic is situated above your mouth somewhere in front of you (at an angle, so that it points to your mouth). The air pressure of the P's will pass unnoticed below the mic's membrane (my P's and S's are too hard too... while said technique works well for P's it will not really help with S's).

And like I said before, I'm not interested in those "perfect" songs that anyone can make with some copy paste (and some clicking). If those type of singers happen to exist, that's all good. If they don't, no big deal. Just have fun.
And now, back to our regular programming.
Just curious, but I turn off my mic during interludes in the music so as not to pic up too much background or me drinking water or something does that count as not being in one take?

That's okay. I almost never do it since the whole process does get picked up by the mic (when I turn it off and when I turn it back on), but if your mic doesn't do that, go ahead.

PS: That's a cute avatar!

-This time, I will allow songs that are not in their original pitch. Just let me know to what key it was changed to when you submit your entry.
Am I correct in understanding that you are supposed to simply ignore parts of the song where 2 lines overlap? Or are you allowed to mix in more than 1 recording to facilitate karaoke of all the lyrics?

pitch? key?

Is this contest as serious as it seems to be? I was kinda hoping it'd just be a fun way of hearing eachother FAIL at singing. My entrance in this could have only one consequence: Being charged with crimes against humanity.

Seriously though, can I hear examples of previous editions of this? None of the torrents seem to be seeded. Wanna hear just what sort of quality ppl produce before making too much of an ass out of myself. ;-)

It would be so much fun to do Princess Bride by KOTOKO btw, lol. =P

( About half of the song: http://youtube.com/watch?v=8P32zKf1qHk )

Wonder if there's a karaoke version of it though, one would have to be slightly insane to sing along with this. Especially since its lyrics do not exactly obscure the fact that the song was made for an H-Game

For the sake of making performances comparable (like e.g. in the Sing Star game), one has to set certain rules

You can add the torrent to your BT client, I think Schadowfox has a script that detects clients after a while, and will seed it then.

I don't know about a karaoke/instrumental version of this song, but you can still sing it over the original voice (your voice just have to be louder) - but you'ld need a fast tongue for that one

I was finishing recording my song when all of a sudden my two year old came and spoke loudly next to me. I listened to the song and there is indeed a baby voice at the end. But I really don't feel like trying it again since the song strains my voice and my throat is not faring too good today. Still, I'm not sure if I'll submit the song like that. Maybe if I don't find any more inspirational moments to do it again?

Nothing wrong with baby voices. As long as it didn't cover your singing.

There is nothing wrong with eroge songs. I did one last time, and I think I'll do one this time as well. Break the stereotype!

EDIT: According to this, there is a karaoke version of Princess Bride on the "arranged album". Good luck hunting!

There are people who sing it for fun, and some who take it really, really seriously. So it doesn't matter which stance you take.
Besides, a certain someone will try to up you on the "crimes against humanity" category.

Which reminds me... I just heard one of the entries... Which means, time to start sending in your entries!

Hum.... for some reason I haven't had the time/mood to sing a good enough/perfect entry yet, but some earlier "drafts" are good enough I guess (though some people may have heard them already ^^ ;; ). I really hope to hear the entries from Chibi Nasu and Shiemi.
