    This is Halloween

    Stats.

    Chorus still OPEN.



    What is this?

    It's just a collaboration type musical thingy with KHV members. Anyone can join. ANYONE. All you have to do is post the lines you want, record them, and send them to me on time. This time around it's This is Halloween. A lot of people seemed interested in this so I tweaked the rules a bit.

    After this one, we'll take a voting break, haha. The deadline is a day before Halloween.

    If you weren't in the previous choruses, I need you to find a picture for me to edit for you. High quality anime pictures can be found here: http://www.zerochan.net

    It doesn't have to be anime, it can be anything. It just has to be HIGH quality, and LARGE enough for me to work with. Not giant. But a nice size. Bigger than our avatars. I need a picture for future ones. Once you turn in a suitable picture, you'll never have to again unless you want to for future chorus stuff.


    So yeah, if you want to find another picture for me even if I have one, let me know. Otherwiseeee, for anyone who -hasn't- given me a picture yet at all, please do so.


    There are no auditions, no microphone restrictions. 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, which is also free for evaluation.

    What I'd like to ask if that you sing along with the instrumental/main track 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. It is MUCH better for you to be too quiet than too loud. If you're quiet, I can turn your volume up. If you're too loud and your mic peaks, I have to turn your volume way dowwwn.

    You can sing along with the instrumental, and it's okay if the instrumental/main song 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.

    Here's an Audacity tutorial written by P for Mulan, but whatever;

    How to Use Audacity

    Getting the Stuff

    Go here and download the version for your computer. (Use the 1.3 series.) Install it in the manner appropriate for your OS.

    Go here to download and save the Mulan instrumental to somewhere on your computer. (Or whatever instrumental you may be using.)


    Opening the Instrumental

    Open Audacity. You'll should see this.

    Open the Mulan instrumental with Audacity. In a Mac, it's File>Open. Navigate to where you saved the Mulan instrumental, and open it.

    You should now see this. There are two tracks, for the two stereo tracks.


    Recording

    Open the Audacity preferences and look under the 'Recording' tab for the Overdub option. Make sure it is ticked, so you can hear the instrumental as you record. Mine looks like this, but yours may be slightly different.

    Press the red button up top. A new track will begin to record, as can be seen here

    Listen through the instrumental until you get to the part with the lines you need to sing, at which point, sing them. When the song is finished, press the yellow, square stop button. You should end up with something like this.


    Fixing Errors

    Of course, you'll probably screw up somewhere. That's why you can do it multiple times. Click mute on the mistake'd track, as in here. Next, click before the area where you made a mistake and press the record button. You can now sing the part again. When you're done, press the stop button. You'll end up with this. You can do this procedure as many times as needed, until all lines are correct on at least one track.


    Editing

    Now we have to delete everything except the lines you're gonna use. (You can now unmute any muted tracks.) We want to use the Split Delete tool. You do this by selecting the unwanted lines, as in here, and using Split Delete on it. On a Mac, the shortcut for it is Option+Command+K, but on a PC, at a guess, it would be Alt+Control+K. It will yield this result.

    Continue doing this until you've only got your lines left. Mine looks like this.

    Now we remove the instrumental track too, by pressing the X on the top-left of those two tracks. We're left with this.


    Sending to Jayn

    Now the hard work is done, we just need to export it. Go File>Export, and choose where to save the file. Make sure it is in WAV format. It'll look somewhat like this.

    Ignore this metadata thing that pops up. Just hit 'OK'. Likewise, hit OK on the Mono Channel warning.

    You're done! Now go and upload your file to some filehost, or email it to Jayn.


    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. This rule may be changed depending on how many people are interested. There are a lot of parts, to give people more opportunity to join. THIS RULE WILL BE LIFTED AND RETURNED TO THE NORMAL FOUR PARTS (OR MORE) AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS. It works as a sort of cap to give more people the chance to join without it filling up instantly, though it might anyway.
    • These Kawaii Desu things here --> { ♥ } <-- are for duets. Only TWO people can claim those.
    • The lines in black should be recorded by everyone.
    • First come first serve for lines, but the deadline is October 30th. That means turn in your lines BY then. The video goes up on that date.
    • 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 (THREE max, but not three 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 !TIMED TO THE INSTRUMENTAL!, or you can record all of your lines separately and send them to me that way in a ZIP or RAR file.
    • Once again...TIME your vocals. Sing to the TIMING of the song. Sing to the song.
    • Remember that I don't actually want to hear the song behind your vocals. If you sing along, wear headphones so your mic doesn't pick it up OR have the song really low while you record. If I hear it, the audience will too and that makes it sound bad.
    • Please help fill out the song. If you have the time, please pick four parts. REMEMBER to record the BLACK LINES. Otherwise, when the chorus sings together, your voice will not be included.
    • Anyone can sing the black lines, but I'm less likely to fit you into the video if the only thing you sang were the black lines. (When it's much harder to fit everyone in to begin with.)





    Lyrics/Parts:

    Black Lines = EVERYONE records that part.
    { ♥ } = Duets. TWO people can claim that part online.
    [ ... ] = Solos. ONE person can claim that. Only ONE solo per singer.

    Only one solo, please. Make sure you read the rules.

    No introductory monologue thing. I thought about it, too. But no.

    Still editing the OP. Forgive any mistakes for now.
