The PokéCommunity Get-together 4 - Singing Contest (As Shadow called it: PC Idol)
A new addition, a singing contest! With .wav files, your microphone and the community sing to your hearts content and get rated. Do it creatively. Get the instrumentals from your favorite songs or sing one solo without music.

Shadow and I are judging, so let's see what you've got! Everyone gets an award!

I was going to participate in this but I'm not anymore. Mainly because I don't have a song to sing for everyone and I might lose so I'll just pass.

Dizzy
February 6th, 2004, 09:10 PM
And the Winner is. Carol :) I can just see you winning Carol.. you have a Piano!

Dizzy do you have a karioke? That might work! Try to sing. If you can get music in the background.

Dizzy
February 6th, 2004, 09:31 PM
I have a Mini-recording system. You sing songs and it uploads them to your computer in .Mp3 or .wav format, it's really cool, almost like Karaoke. Maybe I could try singing Bumblebee or Moonlight Shadow!

I suppose, as long as you’re singing. You’d want to double check with Masato, but I imagine that’d be okay.

Heck, I'll do it for fun... I'll do it tommorow on Sunday... ^_^;

I hope I don't go off-key, high-pitched, out of sync with the music, cough, distracted, etc.

Well, I would sing (like I actually could) while playing my saxophone, but that's rather impossible isn't it? Hehe....
Even if I wanted to sing, my microphone isn't hooked up so I can't participate in this one.

February 7th, 2004, 11:23 AM
I dont know how to mix kareoke verisions with your own voice so I just tried to remember the melody and sing to the lyrics... its maybe alittle boring without instruments and alittle bad quality but it was the best I could do....If you know what song it is you are very smart or you hangs around disney movies to much LOL...XD

All PC members in front of me...toooooooooooo scary! *picks up electric piano and hits someone's head with it*

Oops...sorry person...

Thanks Frostweaver... ^____^

Umm, thanks Mystical Mewtwo ^________^ I liked your file a lot lol! Scott the Great and Dakota...=D When is part II coming up? PC theme song! =D XD ^____^ I thought your voice was pretty good (Ooh, soo much better than all these male "artists" such as Justin Timberlake no offence to his fans) and the song was sooo funny XD
*gets hit in the head with an electric piano*
Oof!!.....figures it's me hehe......
Carol, for some reason your file isn't working for me! All I can see is one of those little shape thingys that come on when you can't get a pic to load all the way....

For my entry, I sang the Neon Genesis: Evangelion opening theme. Yes, it's in japanese so you'll probably need the lyrics to understand it. I can't sing japanese very well in terms of pronounciation, but I gave it a go.

And I love Carol's entry! It's a pity that you only did one minute due to Sound Recorder... wah... Oh well. ^_^

Are we allowed to submit multiple entries? I was thinking of singing Fire!! Butterfly, and the japanese Pokemon openings. :)

Edit: Mario1000s, did you try Right-Clicking and clicking Save Target As... ? That's how I downloaded the songs here on PC. ^_-

Additional Edit: Mystical Mewtwo, that's a funny song. Hehe... quite good...

Hiroshi Sotomura
February 7th, 2004, 11:39 PM
That's ok Optic, as many as you can possibly do. I'd be singing OK! if I wanted to.
And for a judge, I can be like the Australian Idol Judge D i c k o, and sometimes like American Idol's Simon Cowell. Moods apparently. Who should I be? Ehehehe!

Need to fix the sensors so D I C K is only applied to the word itself.

February 7th, 2004, 11:51 PM
Hey nice Optic! I couldn't do as nearly as good
as you, even though I do speak japanese.

(I'm not japanese)

I was going to try and submit an entry,
but I got the recoder broken
( I wonder why I get something broken every time
I need to use it)

Kairyu
February 7th, 2004, 11:59 PM
Nice entry Optic, I'm not a singing buff or anything but like I said earlier you need to.. oh, what's that word.. annunciate with the song. Still I enjoyed listening to it, hehe. Hurry up and submit another one! I wanna hear more...

As a reward you all might get to hear my legendary broken voice in a few short days, stay tuned!

Rifted
February 8th, 2004, 12:20 AM
All right. Here it is. There was a problem with uploading the file (apparently .MP3 was invalid. :\), so I uploaded it on a remote host. >.>;;

http://home.comcast.net/~rifted/Rifted_-_Since_Yesterday.mp3 (2.33MB)
(You might want to right-click and "Save As." It's a big file. Sorta.)
Song: Since Yesterday
Artist: (cover) Wussom Pow
Artist: (original) Strawberry Switchblade

Vocals: Rifted (OMG)!
Mixed by: Rifted (yeah, I've got experience...)

Yup, this is dedicated to my buddy, Kairyu. To him and everyone else, I hope your ears don't explode. My voice broke many many times. :]

BTW, also mind the volume issues. Sometimes the guitar gets really really loud.

(Ooooh, you can do multiple songs? Expect more from yours truly!)

February 8th, 2004, 02:26 AM
Hey nice song, Rifted, good work!
I didn't see any problems with the volume by the way.

February 8th, 2004, 02:55 AM
Oh no, how could you, Anthony? Aargh, I had "PC Idol" all planned out for a month now! And I had a full 500-word post with rules etc. all written out to put up, but I hadn't had time! AAAARGH! OK, I'm running PC Idol 2. No arguments.

I'll enter when I have time to record, and when my parents aren't around (my whole family laughs when I sing, so I have to do it when there's no one else around). I'll record and mix "My Immortal". I can't get enough of that song!

Hiroshi Sotomura
February 8th, 2004, 03:17 AM
Oh don't worry. It's not exactly PC Idol anyway. It's just a Singing Contest. If you want to get somebody for the name, get Shadow! XD

Go ahead and name it "PC Idol" unless you really want to keep "PC Idol 2" :p

OOooh you're doing "My Immortal"? I should do so myself but I'm a judge. O.o

Geometric-sama
February 8th, 2004, 03:20 AM
Yeah, judges can't enter. Which is why, although I'll produce PC Idol after this singing contest ends, I won't judge. I wanna win! XD When does this contest end? I won't have the time to record and upload until at least Wednesday.

Hiroshi Sotomura
February 8th, 2004, 03:38 AM
This is the only place you'll find this - it won't end after the get-together ends either. So entrys are due at the end of the month.

Geometric-sama
February 8th, 2004, 03:46 AM
OK, so I'll enter and once the results for this "singing contest" are out I can start my PC Idol?

February 8th, 2004, 04:59 AM
I couldn't get to yours Optic..the link lead to "page not found" for me :S WOW PokemonTrainerCarol, you play the piano extremely well! MM2 you song was original! I'm trying to get hold of yours Rifted, but taking ages to open the page. lol I can't sing a word myself, but I still sig when my fave songs comes on. lol somehow caught myself singing a random song. It was part of blink-182's 'I miss you'. If you do decide to listen to it, my mic is really poor quality, so you'll need your volume up a lil bit. Also I messed up the lyrics a bit cos of a joke with my friend, but still hey I'm surprised I've put this up :p it's short and bad.....:p

perthskies
February 8th, 2004, 05:43 AM
I can barely hear anything...
[EDIT] PokeTrainer Carol's....

Yes, it is recorded at a very low level. Just open the WAVE up in an audio editing program and normalise the volume.

Oh, and somehow my song got deleted Igtica, so I'm uploading it again. *sighs Edit - Okay, it's online again.

Converting WAVE files to MP3 files
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/

I would strongly recommend using the program 'dBpowerAMP Music Converter'. It is a freeware utility and can convert several formats. To reduce download size (1.45 MB) however, it has the minimum standard of converting WAVE to MP3 and vice versa. Additional plug-ins can be downloaded from the site for practically every audio format, such as OGG, GYM, PS2, etc...

When converting to MP3, the best bitrate for a balance of size and good quality would be 128kbps. ^_^;

Converting WAVE files to WMA files
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5691ba02-e496-465a-bba9-b2f1182cdf24&DisplayLang=en
The only program that I know of that can do this effectively is Microsoft's official product: 'Windows Media Encoder 9 Series'. I must warn you, the system requirements are pretty high (266 megahertz (MHz) processor and 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM) and that is it a 9.6 MB download. Also, it can only be run by the following operating systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP.

It has support for converting one multimedia file to Microsoft's video/audio formats... i.e. (AVI to WMV, MPEG to WMV, WAVE to WMA, MP3 to WMA...) It's the same program I use to encode video clips for my site. The advantage of WMA over MP3 is that it's compression is comparitevely better than MP3. The main disadvantage is that it's not as universal as MP3, and needs the appropriate codec in order to play WMA files. I would recommend encoding at a bitrate of 64kbps (CD Quality).

I hope I didn't bore you with my little guide. Just thought it would be helpful for those having trouble compressing their recordings. ^_-

Rifted
February 8th, 2004, 08:13 AM
Igtica, you may want to try right clicking and saving the file. It's pretty big, but the link is working perfectly for me. :\

Optic, excellent guide! Maybe I should write one as to how to mix files and get rid of awful background noise (hisses, static, etc). Expect one from yours truly soon.

HOWEVER... I have another song by me, and this time, it's going to be my hit song!

Pokemon Theme (Defunct) (http://home.comcast.net/~rifted/Rifted_-_Pokemon_Theme_Defunct.mp3) (870KB)
I cut out most of the beginning because I knew that all of you wouldn't be able to stand my "excellent" voice. xD And if you're wondering, my brother assisted me towards the end of the song.


For those who are wondering, it's done awful on purpose...xD

Bravo, Rifted, Bravo! Amazingly enough my speakers didn't explode either, lol. Your vocals are.. in short.. just too good for my ears ; _ ;. Where did you learn to sing like that? Great job and thank you for the dedication! *is speechless*

Just listened to Rifted's lastest creation, the Pokemon theme (defunct.) Lets just say it help build up a little courage in me to make a song. Ah well, competition seems to be getting more and more vicious in the singing thread, I hope my song will still be "reviewable," lol. Now I just need a microphone, I don't want to have to resort to using my voice tape recorder:P. That's about as low quality as I can get, hehe.

That's great Mystical Mewtwo! XD the only problem is that I expected a girl's voice...*checks gender* but it says male. Sorry. o_x

I did my own recording...it's bad, but it was fun! *looks for it*
Ah! found it! thesoundfile!.wav XD

"Now, when the little line get to the end of the thin line, you press the red button with this button. Okay?"
"Okay."
"And don't speak"
"Okay. 1`,2,3, goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"
Making my way downtown (I just typed download) walking fast faces past and I'm homebound...
"Homebound? Homebound?!?!?! WHAT is HOMEbound supposed to MEAN?!!?!?"
"I told you to not speak"
"Oops. But HOMEbouND..."
"You know what homebound, you're fired. I'll make this thing last one minute"

Sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo it lasts exactly one minute. And it's very bad, the piano sounds fairly nice but I sound like I'm 5. Or less. My singing is bad anyway. The recording makes me think of those Classic Rock songs my father listens to, where the intro is very neat and the voice just ruins it. XD I played the piano btw...
...AND I'm brave enough to post this...thing o_O
I also think that---------okay, I know you don't want to read a whole book before listening.
But I tell you it's bad!



Oh! (XP) And...and...and...the song is supposed to be "A Thousand Miles"by Vanessa Carlton. Written by Vanessa Carlton. From the album Be Not Nobody. Recorded in------------ALRIGHT, I'll shut up now.



I WAS going to shut up but it seems I can't post something 5,000 something in size...

So I have lowered it to 2,000something KB. Let's see if it works. Bad quality..but...



OKAY, it didn't work. Has to be less than 2MB!
Watch out people
I just did something funny to it...now it's less than 2MB...I have no idea what I did but it's smaller and sounds fairly good! >_> XD *tries now*

It worked! Yay!
EDIT: Omg...it's very low quality...but you can hear it...sooo...it's my computer's fault!
XD

XD, XDDDD, XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD, XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD;;;;;;;;;

Amazing, amazing!

Best thing I've heard since Dratini's voice!

I love that song!!! Well I like that song that much more now!!! :) :) :P :P :P

BTW, I think you sound younger than you looked. A little out of breath there too eh? :P

Yum, yum! Great Piano too, sounds pokemonish too for some reason! :P

Er, better stop there. ^^'

I'll litsen to the rest later, my connection is too poor at the moment.

February 8th, 2004, 08:58 PM
LOL!! MM2, that was great! Yeah, I had to turn up the volume, but the "tim-beh-jeh-er" parts were awesome!! And thanks for including me. :] *does the newbie dance*

For reasons pretty obvious, I've revamped my "Since Yesterday" entry.

February 8th, 2004, 09:11 PM
Whee! Thanks for the praise. I made up that entire rant on the spot, so it was going to be weird anyways. :]

I'm gonna try and do the Newbie Dance soon; I just got the MP3 so I'm gonna try and revamp your lyrics soon. I'm gonna have to sing reeeally fast towards the end, it gets faster and faster. xD

February 9th, 2004, 04:21 AM
Nice MM2, but yes I had to turn it up a bit to hear certain parts. I wish I could think of lyrics that quickly, lol.

Sheez Rifted, are you planning to publish that song? Cause I think you won the contest by a landslide, but that's just me! What kind of recording program do you use? The quality is superb! And that intro was a nice touch, lol.

Well I'm currently in the process of thinking of lyrics so sit tight, I'll get it done eventually! It's more than likely not gonna be no where near as good as rifted's creation but as long as I get the message across it shouldn't be the case.. right? *crowd boos and throw tomatos at Kairyu* OK, ok I'll at least sing with some tone or something:P.

For now I'll just tease you all with a short sound clip of me.. voice *gasp!* Reason I'm doing this is to test to see if I can actually upload a file I hosted (as well as testing the quality of the clip.) Umm well, happy testing! And let me know if you heard it too! kthxbye!
SOUND CLIP OF MY "TEST" IS OVER HERE (http://www.geocities.com/darkhyren/Lets_try_test1.mp3). Just remember to right click the link and hit "save as.." It should download that way.

It works for me! Kairyu, I loved how you used that SMRPG song. o.o Reminds me of good times. You're thinking up a song? I'd love to hear it! (BTW, your sound mixing was great.) :]

Yea, you should be able to find it like this: Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder

If that doesn't work than I don't know, you better ask someone like Kairi then. ^.^;;

Ooo Directions:).
That'll help! I would've submitted my song by now but everytime I mix my lyrics into the song, the song would skip at the end of the mix:\. I must be pasting the mix all wrong or something.
Either that or I need a better a program.

Is there a free software for converting mp3s or wmas into mp3s?

Rifted
February 14th, 2004, 08:47 AM
Is there a free software for converting mp3s or wmas into mp3s?

LAME.

No, that's not a bad remark, LAME is actually the name of one of the best MP3 converters out there. x]

There are various programs that can convert different sound files to MP3, but LAME is great because you can modify compression specifications, and it's free. :]

Anyways, it's time for...

AN AUDIO MIXING TUTORIAL OF SORTS
BY RIFTED

All right, in this tutorial (of sorts), I'll just explain the basics of audio formats, mixing, etc. It's pretty easy. I mean, even I learned how to do it somehow. x]

SOFTWARE
- GOLDWAVE v4.26 - [Download (http://www.goldwave.com/gwave426.exe)] - Yes, I know that a newer version has come out, but this is the version that I'm going to use for this tutorial. Somehow I can't install v5.06. >.>;; This is the basic audio program we're going to be using.
- LAMEWIN32 - [Download (http://www.mp3-tech.org/software/encoders/lamewin32.exe)] - One of the best MP3 encoders out there. Install this after GoldWave, and be sure to install it into folder where GoldWave was installed (for example, C:\Program Files\GoldWave) so that you can have the capability to save MP3 files in GoldWave. RazorLAME is not really necessary if you're only going to be using GoldWave to convert (although there are many compression options available in RazorLAME, it's basically a program used to run LAME on it's own).

Well, since this is for singing, I might as well just formulate the tutorial around it. o.o

1. Open up GoldWave, and head towards File > New. Go with CD quick settings, as that's probably the best choice for high quality recording (however, it still all depends on your microphone and soundcard). Choose the length of the file, and make it a bit longer than the song that you're going to be singing.

2. All right, hit the record button at the Device Controls window (if it's not there, head to Tools > Device controls) and start singing! There may be a safety lock on the Record button, so you'll have to hold CTRL while clicking the button (you can change the safety in the Device control options).

Here's a tip...
- In order to get the timing right, try listening to the song with headphones while singing. Depending on your sound card, you may be able to record and listen to an audio file at once. Be sure to use headphones, though! If your sound card doesn't support the listening of more than one audio file, then try getting out a portable CD player or MP3 player and sticking your headphones jack in there.

3. Screenshot (http://img18.photobucket.com/albums/v55/rifted/tutorial_step3.jpg)
You've probably got a nice file similar to this. It all depends on how loud you sang, but that's okay. Give it a listen-through, and if you're pleased, save it as either an MP3 (128kbps is the standard quality) or WAV (16bit stereo for those who have nice big hard drives).

4. Screenshot (http://img18.photobucket.com/albums/v55/rifted/tutorial_step4.jpg)
Now, time for the mixing! With your file that has the singing, trim the beginning and end silence portions off by clicking with your left/right mouse buttons. For the beginning part, try and get it close to when your voice starts. Then go to Edit > Trim.

5. Screenshot (http://img18.photobucket.com/albums/v55/rifted/tutorial_step5.jpg)
Get out your karaoke file, or the background music that you'll be mixing your singing to. If there isn't a karaoke version of the song that you're using, you could always try removing the vocals. It's more of a process of reversing parts of the different stereo channels, so don't expect it to be perfect. Sometimes only the drums are removed, and the voice will will be audible. It all depends on the song, so try out the process with different songs and see if you can find one that works out well with the "Remove vocals." This can be found in Effects > Stereo > Remove Vocals.

6. Screenshot (http://img18.photobucket.com/albums/v55/rifted/tutorial_step6.jpg)
Save the background music to a different file, to avoid overwriting the original. Now, with your left mouse button, select to the point where the vocals are supposed to start.

7. Screenshot (http://img18.photobucket.com/albums/v55/rifted/tutorial_step7.jpg)
Go to your vocals file, and select Edit > Copy. Go back to the background music file, and select Edit > Mix. Now you've got a choice as to how loud the file should be when mixing. If you found that you sang pretty loud, reduce the percentage number. If you sang pretty softly, try increasing the percentage. Then hit OK.

8. Screenshot (http://img18.photobucket.com/albums/v55/rifted/tutorial_step8.jpg)
Voila! Give it a listen-through, and if your voice is too loud/too quiet, try modifying the volume while mixing. If your vocals are sort of off in terms of timing, Edit > Undo the entire thing and try moving the selection a little bit. It may be frustrating, but you'll get it done.

9. File > Save your sompleted file. You're done!

>.>

Hope that helps. I'm not the master of this kind of stuff, but PM me if you need any extra help.

Oh, and Carol...I sound like a 8-year-old boy in my song. x]

It was funny how I had to cut and cut the file and erase this part and that part until it was short enough to post (Less than 2MB!) And starting in
"That I might..."
Sounds SO weird! XD
I don't sound five anymore...

(You might want to right-click and "Save As." It's a big file. Sorta.)
Song: Since Yesterday
Artist: (cover) Wussom Pow
Artist: (original) Strawberry Switchblade

Vocals: Rifted (OMG)!
Mixed by: Rifted (yeah, I've got experience...)

Yup, this is dedicated to my buddy, Kairyu. To him and everyone else, I hope your ears don't explode. My voice broke many many times. :]

BTW, also mind the volume issues. Sometimes the guitar gets really really loud.

(Ooooh, you can do multiple songs? Expect more from yours truly!)

Wow! All of you have such wonderful singing voices!....although MM2...just kidding! Hehe.....
All the girls have really pretty voices! I'm suprised you're not a professional singer Rifted! Igtica and PokeTrainerCarol suprised me a little bit. You two have nicer singing voices then I first thought!....and I thought you 2 had really nice voices in the first place! And Blaine, I like that song too and you had the perfect voice to sing it! Such a really lovely voice!

I liked Kairyu's and Optic's a lot too, even though I couldn't understand what they said hehe. MM2's was cool and funny, kinda how I predicted it to be!...except I imagined your voice a bit different.

Well, I would really like to sing too (although I have a terrible singing voice) just for the fun of it, but I don't have my microphone hooked up. Even if I do hook it up though, I have no idea what to sing! I started thinking of singing something LotRy, but I then realized that most of the songs don't have words!
(Except for the song Aragorn sings at the end of RotK...hmm..)

Well, nice singing voices everyone!

And maybe, if I get four of my friends together, we could all sing 'Koi Wa A La Mode', from Tokyo Mew Mew. (Once I get a microphone.) It's the only song that I know of that has several girls singing it. Plus when I'm singing in Japanese I sound like Ichigo, and two of my friends sound like Mint and Zakuro. ^_^; So it'd work out perfectly! I'll just need a karoeke(sp?) version of it, and we'll need to learn how to sing lightning speed. o_o;

Ooh! Ooh! Don't judge yet! Here is my thing, it took me ages to find time to record it. I was going to mix it/sequence it, but no time... so there's no music to it. My microphone doesn't have very good sound, sorry. If you can't tell (because my voice is so bad), it's supposed to be My Immortal by Evanescence.

And the file took SOOOOOO long to upload... I can't be bothered recording more because of upload time. Even though I reduced the filesize to *checks* 64k. And zipped it.

Dratanola! Its down already:(.... Rifted? Why issit when I remove vocals, the whole song gets much softer?

Because in essence, removing vocals doesn't actually remove the vocal track, it pretty much just reverses one of the stereo channels, so the results differ from song to song. Sometimes the vocals are removed perfectly, sometimes its the drum loop, sometimes the main guitar goes out along with whatnot...you get what I mean. Hopefully. ^^;

Yea, but just to hear your voice, why dont you just record something:D?

Miyu-chan
March 3rd, 2004, 06:08 PM
lol, Maybe later, because my brother and I were having so much fun with the microphone, my mom hid it. >=(

Kairi
March 3rd, 2004, 06:33 PM
Aw...try and find it next time you're out. X3 Then make lots and lots of recording and release one weekly! Yeah! ~~~

Oh joy! The results are almost in.. -ish excited- It most definitely won't be me who places, but I can't wait to see the results! Yay

Rifted

*pop*

...I think that since it's almost halfway through March, the results could at least have some signs of showing up. ^^;

So...yeah. I'm not sure if I'll have time to record another song, but if this wait is going to go on for a while, then I guess I could. x]

March 12th, 2004, 01:29 AM

Results
I know some of you have been waiting for this, and now is the time you can get excited, because… here are the results!

Winning Entries (grouped by people)
1st Place Winner
Rifted – Since Yesterday (Revamp), Since Yesterday, Pokémon Theme Defunct
You got 9.5/10 for such an excellent song, Since Yesterday. The revamp was great! Congratulations!
Overall Score for this member: 9.5/10

2nd Place Winner
Optic - Zankoku na Tenshi no TE-ZE (Cruel Angel’s Thesis)
Improving your trailing voice will benefit in the songs you sing, and you should use a song you can do as well.
Overall Score for this member: 7.5/10


3rd Place Winners
bna_li – I’m Just a Kid
Jedi_Amara – My Immortal
Mystical_Mewtwo – PC song 2
Igtica – I Miss You
Mystical_Mewtwo – PC Song
Blaine – There She Goes, Flavor of the Weak
First, you shouldn’t pause during a song, or repeat multiple times, but yes I reckon you all did a great job. I’ve mentioned comments below. You need music to accommodate your songs, and other things. Overall scores you get are 7/10, congratulations!
Overall Score for these members: 7/10

Entries and comments

Entries that have been inaccessible were not counted, sorry.

Entry 1
Mystical_Mewtwo – PC Song
The voice was trailing off… and you are definitely a great… poet! XD
Background music was a closely necessary. But the ending bit made me look flatly. And possibly 1 mark off for no mention of Mr. Contest Manager! Me! (I’m joking). Your tone is just a bit flat. You may need to try and improve it at the next singing contest I hold.
Overall Score: 7/10

Entry 2
Optic - Zankoku na Tenshi no TE-ZE (Cruel Angel’s Thesis)
Funny you used a Japanese song. The start bit was a bit out of tune. There’s a bit of voice tuning needed for the song. Anyway, it had some background music. It was ok in ways, but the voice seems a bit nosy. Perhaps it’s the Japanese song? Try giving something with correct pronunciation next time, ok? ^_^
Possibly an English song would do well?
Overall Score: 7.5/10

Entry 3
Rifted – Since Yesterday
Great! The singing is just slight not in tune at only few times. I can hear your voice a bit. You have a nice voice; just add a little more harmony.
Overall Score: 8/10

Entry 4
Igtica – I Miss You
A song in the background probably suits you? The quality is a bit low, but I tried to listen.
Overall Score: 7/10

Entry 5
Rifted – Pokémon Theme Defunct
O.o You deliberately made it defunct? Your voice there is good, and at least some background music made it ok. Ok, the title tells it all. I laughed at the ending bit, too much tongue holding or something in your song I reckon. Your brother’s voice made me laugh. But that and the few deliberate defecting was the only thing that added to your score.
Overall Score: 6.5/10

Entry 6
Mystical_Mewtwo – PC song 2
Quiet repeats? Awww… tmbjr might get upset at the way you pronounced his name. Use Tommy next time. ^_^; Your voice trailed off again… Music deals a lot of good too… I liked your “Wheeeeee!” at the end.
Overall Score: 7/10

Entry 7
Rifted – Since Yesterday (Revamp)
The quality is clear, and your ranting… it’s ok.
Funny you actually mentioned your purpose here! ^_^; I’ll give you 0.5 mark.
You were singing the other one in the night? Awww…
Nice song! Mark booster!
I would rarely give them to people I’ve rated music of.
A harmony increase will do well, I reckon. It feels like listening to professional singers. ^_^
You are pretty much even with Asuca Hayashi (she sung Chiisaki Mono, the theme for the 6th Pokémon movie).
Overall Score: 9.5/10

Entry 8
Blaine – There She Goes
A song in the background probably suits you like I said it suited Igtica? The quality is somewhat low, and you should adjust your voice with the actual song. Harmony does it!
Overall Score: 7/10

Entry 9
Dakota – Blow it up
This ain’t no talent quest me mate. I’ll be sure to blow you up.
Blow it up? No music, no tune in your voice… you could have at least sung something right. Hilarious but I don’t take that in for non-singing…
Overall Score: 4/10

Entry 10
Kenshin11212 – My Heart Will Go On
Creaky, scary and… eeek! Music fits a bit you know! A different song would do you well. I don’t quite take things as jokes you know!
Overall Score: 5/10

Entry 11
Blaine – Flavor of the Weak
There’s a bit more harmony in this song than your other, I find. I still reckon some music would fit though, but really it’s dependant on your voice.
Overall Score: 7/10

Entry 12
Jedi_Amara – My Immortal
Nice song! Soft tone! Some music would do well. Anyway, your voice was a bit fogged. Keep the microphone steady. Your voice did trail off a bit. Nice anyway.
Overall Score: 7/10

Entry 13
bna_li – I’m Just a Kid
You have a great harmony just waiting to be accommodated by music. You’d probably do well with that voice and music.
Overall Score: 7/10

Overall with people’s songs, I was very impressed. Most of you have music talent just wanting to come out. Sorry to many who didn’t get to participate, the next singing competition will be there, and I’ll hope for you to participate. You all were very good at this, and I look forward to hearing you again at the next singing competition. If anybody wishes to help me judge the next one, contact me.

Well you'll be able to sing it at the next Singing Contest.

Blaine
March 12th, 2004, 01:28 PM
Yay... I... Got a 7/10 ^_^. 70% isn't too bad. I should've done a complete clip with background music though... My parents got angry at me for just singing, though... I must be awful, lol. Next time, I'll do better. Congrats Rifted! ^^

Our database was moved to a new server, we had to use a backup that was a couple days old. I hope you saved a copy on your computer...

Geometric-sama
March 15th, 2004, 06:18 PM
Yeah, I realised after I posted. Thanks, luckily I did save a copy since I've been planning the contest for two months! (But Anthony got in first XD)

Don't worry, you probably just switched layouts. Down at the bottom of the page, there is a drop down menu and you can choose your layout.

Yep, the thread is done. Probably should be locked, I think. Maybe you can do it, Koty boy. I've posted the Pokémon Community Idol thread, first auditions close at the end of this month so better be quick! XD You only have two more weeks.

Wholy crud, I won. ^^; Thanks for all the congrats, y'guys, next time I'll be glad to help out with anyone who needs help with mixing, audio quality clean-up, etc. Because...yeah. x]

Hope for the next singing contest to be a smash like this one! =D

I have to say, congrats Rifty girl! Great singing, and it was a fantastic tutorial on the mixing! *thinks* I have a new music site, would you let me use it (with credit of course)? Oh yeah, and all of you go enter Idol. XD Link: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=5854
