    What is this?

    I wanted to cover this song, but it's too fun to do alone. So after a few of you posted up yourselves singing some karaoke, I thought it'd be fun to maybe start a KHV chorus. Howeverrr, I felt it would be too ambitious to just dive right into that, so how about a test-run? The song is Still Alive from the game Portal. In the event that the chorus became a re-occuring community thing, we'd have polls on which song to preform next (as long as the song had an instrumental).

    There are no auditions, no microphone restrictions, no slot limits. It doesn't matter if you think you're an amazing singer, or if your mic is fuzzy, all I ask if that you have fun with it and turn your parts in!

    The Song.

    How to record.

    For those of you who aren't sure how to go about recording yourself singing it, there are several different programs you can use. Audacity is a free program. I use Reaper.

    What I'd like to ask if that you sing along with the instrumental for timing, but your finished track not have the instrumental. For example, if you make two different tracks in a program, and record yourself singing on one track and have the instrumental on another track or playing on youtube or something while you sing your part, when you send it to me I would like to just hear your voice and not the instrumental.

    You can sing along with the instrumental, and it's okay if the instrumental is heard faintly in your recording, so long as it doesn't overpower you. For those of you who decide to use Reaper, I can show you a detailed tutorial on how to do it. For users familiar with Audacity, I ask that one of you maybe make a tutorial for that, since I don't know how Audacity works. :]


    Rules?

    • Have fun!
    • Send your lines to klairecross@gmail.com in MP3 or WAV format OR provide a download link for me in this thread, PM or VM.
    • You may have THREE parts (three lines), and a maximum of three people can sing one part together--EXCEPT for the lines in [brackets]. Those are solos, so only one person can claim those.
    • The lines in black should be recorded by everyone.
    • First come first serve for lines, but the deadline is October 5th.
    • Once a line is striked out, it means it's not available anymore.
    • Please RESERVE your lines before you record. You can post here with what lines (two max, but not two solo parts) you want. I will update the thread with who's singing what part, and what lines are all reserved out.
    • When you send your lines to me, you can either have your lines timed to the instrumental in ONE long file, or you can record all of your lines separately and send them to me that way in a ZIP or RAR file.




    Lyrics/Parts:

    Black = Everyone records that part.
    Different Colors = Different parts.



    This was a triumph.
    I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

    I'm not even angry.
    I'm being so sincere right now.
    Even though you broke my heart.
    And killed me.

    And tore me to pieces.
    And threw every piece into a fire.
    As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you!

    HAHA. FAT CHANCE.

    It's so delicious and moist.
    [Bushy Brow, Jayn, Andrew]

    when there's Science to do.
    When I look out there, it makes me GLaD I'm not you.

    Adding you all. :'D Thanks to everyone who's joined so far.

    Also, for the ones who picked one line, keep in mind you can have two of them if you want. One is fine too, though. c:

    With KH2Man13

    I hope to make time for this, sounds like a bit of fun to be had!
    Although the instrumental's beginning throws me off a slight bit... Hahah, practice makes perfect.

    Updated!

    Also, a few of you posted three lines instead of two, but that's alright. I've edited that you can now have three lines, only three people can sing one part at a time (except the black ones). So for anyone who picked two lines but wants more, you can pick a third. Please post again instead of editing your posts though, I don't want to miss anything. D:

    @Kayate; If you're having trouble singing to the instrumental, you can always sing with GLaDOS. :'D

    I thought it was usual to just record the whole song and send it in and then the editor person would edit it together o: However, if it's alright then I'd like a part, I don't really mind which as long as I get one c: My singing is heavenly.

    Not sure if I can get my mic to work for this, or if it does for me to be understandable, so I'll PM you if I run into any troubles, but at the moment:

    But there's no sense crying over every mistake,

    One small thing, the computer I'm using at the moment doesn't have a microphone so I'm going to have to borrow my brother's computer so the sound might not be great since he's using an Aspire-one laptop.

    Never mind, I found a spare! In light of this I want:

    "I feel fantastic and I'm still alive."

    "I've experments to run and there's research to be done on the people who are still alive."

    We can have three parts now? Rockin'

    And the Science gets done.
    And you make a neat gun.
    For the people who are



    Awww yeaaaaaah

    Also, I noticed my name wasn't marked for "Now these points of data make a beautiful line, we're out of beta, we're releasing on time!"
    So, I just wanted to clear that up. c:

    That's definitely a method. xD I just didn't want to overwhelm those with less time than others or less experience, and admittedly myself.

    I've given you "I've experiments to run.
    There is research to be done.
    On the people who are still alive."

    Because it was the one that wasn't taken. xD You can pick two more parts if you'd like.

    @Kayate: Fixed! Sorry about that. ^^;

    Clarification:

    Sign ups technically don't end until everything is crossed out. However, I'd like lines by October 5th, which means that at that point the chorus would be 'full'.

    Ah, I've never tried one of these, so I was just wondering xD Thanks for clearing that up!

    And thanks for that part, I'd like to request the following as well:

    "And the Science gets done.
    And you make a neat gun.
    For the people who are"

    Then I should be good c:
