Hello, one and all
If you haven't already noticed, were putting together an /mlp/ Sings for one of the songs from the new movie, Rainbow Rocks, that song being Under Our Spell
We already have about 40+ anons voices in this, but were more than willing to accept more. If you wish to participate, record yourself singing that song, either with audacity or vocaroo, and post the links here. I am proud to say that this is probably the largest singing collaboration /mlp/ has ever done, at least to my knowledge.
>But SongFag! My microphone is literally a potato!
That's ok! Our trained audio engineers will fix that shit up in a jiffy!
>But I can't hold a beat to save my life!
If the point of this was to sound good I probably wouldn't be asking you guys, I do not claim to be a singer either.
>Ok, I'll record it using Audacity, what should I export it as?
.wav or .mp3 preferred.
>When do you want this by?
I am no longer accepting sound files, however, another anon has stepped forward and will take anyone who posts in this thread up to midnight on Thursday the 30th, Pacific Time.
>What will happen after you finish?
Once I get all your voices synced up, I'll animate the scene by placing the faces of famous /mlp/ characters and personas over the faces of the characters in the scene, and promptly upload that shit to JewTube.
Expect to be finished by this Saturday afternoon, the 1st. If you want to participate, post your recording using the provided guidelines in this thread.
My body is ready for some sexy voices
And whatever else mulp happens to throw my way
her u go
whoas before chorus
listen to the sound to chorus whoas
these what i could make out of the lower part, so if they sound especially shitty that is part of the reason
Here's the current vocaroo / permanent mediafire for that thing I made.
You'd better thank the recycling bin for saving that recording.
s'not a problem man
Happy to help
Especially if the time between people posting is going to be this long
>you'd better thank the recycling bin
I will do no such thing
Fuck that shitty bin
Though it is appreciated, this is fucking glorious
Right. Any new voices are up to me.
Everything already posted in the old thread is his, unless its people reuploading from the lost vocaroos, like Microsoft Sam, that stuff will be handled by me
Bump before bed
So far we've got like 3 separate anons lending their voices, and one of these three had done pretty much all the dazzlings' parts. Fucking killer dude
Also Microsoft Sam
Off to a pretty good start I guess, its sounding hilariously awesome so far
Reminder that this isn't the full project, Im in charge of stragglers; It isn't too late to lend a hand!
surprisingly enough, the singstar usb to audio thing works on my mac. theoretically, i could use both microphones to record two audio channels and then use something like audacity to combine them into the two channels or something like that.
Or you could record in mono or take the one channel of the "stereo" track that has the majority of the audio, do a "split stereo to mono", and then delete the mono track that has no sound.
>then delete the mono track that has no sound
Not that guy, but I personally like to use that track as the noise profile for noise removal as I get the noise with no sound through the right ear.
bumping, lets get this participation number into the triple digits
Morning gents, everyone be on the lookout for the blu ray track rip, its what we'll be using for the final product
Would have come back sooner but my phone was updating and that took fucking ages
The background singers' parts are preferred, but yeah its not too late.
Audiofag can work wonders
Dont discourage people
Unless they're potatomics in helicopters
Fuck those guys
Yeah we're working together
He was unable to continue to take voices, but there were still people interested as far as we could tell. Also he's doing the video and I can't into video editing software
No, if we keep getting submissions throughout the week then we'll finish up Friday and release the final saturday. If submissions dry up we'll adjust accordingly
Lonely page 9 bump
Pretty much done with the vocals I've gotten thus far
Just sitting here trying to learn the bass parts for that Siren Battle
That fucking breakdown is cool as fuck
Totalhomo, you have a pretty nice voice
Got a little spooked at the background Ohs tho
Its not that we need more anons singing
Its that we want more anons singing
As far as I can tell, it wouldn't hurt to have more of the background woah-ohs and ah-ahs that fit between Adagio's verses
Decent sounding evil laughs as well
Lord knows mine was forced as hell before I decided to forget it entirely and use the monotone GLaDOS laugh
But really, whatever you want to submit is what I'll try to incorporate
This physiological response to emotional stimuli is a sensation known as 'frisson', and it's great. For me it's most common when listening to choral compositions, though it also seems to crop up when a song builds and then drops away to one instrument or voice.
I'm so excited...
Supposedly getting two more singers today.
Fingers crossed that they'll be able to deliver
Also bamping with old shit
Not sure if SF does
I thought it was just a case of
"We havent had a mulpsings in 4 Evers. Shit lets do this"
Besides, that channel only has the one /mlp/ sings and there have been several others before
Hey SongFag, when you do the final mix, can you have all the Adagio voices in the center and the Aria/Sonata voices panned a bit left and right? Like a typical mix probably would be in the pro world.
Ok, I redid all the recording; this time I had the song playing so hopefully it is slightly less shitty. I urge you to save these asap, since I've uploaded them on vocaroo (I couldn't be bothered using mediafire) and they'll probably go AWOL soon. Hope you can find a use for these.
Also, it's Adagio's part because I can't do the secondary voices for shit.
Oh! I remembered what I was going to ask SongFag. You're already doing a version that has every single voice, including the "joke" high-pitched ones, and the Dalek/Turret/GLaDOS robot ones. But could I request that you also make, as a separate download (i.e. no video) a version of our song with those voices removed, and just the "serious" voices? That would be cool to have, and a little nicer to hear, too.
The reason I ask is because I'm trying to keep a private list (as a .txt file) of this song's credits, like, who worked on it. I won't share it, but it's for me to refer to. I'm on it to, as I'm one of the voices.
That is certainly something that could be done, we could even make a version with just those ones singing
the first one that is going to come out however will feature all our voices and animation with the different parts on different tracks
I've checked the archive to see if it was a mistake on my end, but I couldn't what you're referring to. Just for the sake of being finicky, I'll confirm you it's 'canyon'.
I don't care about being credited, but I thought I'd just tell you.
im going through the old thread and adding a few more people that i didnt get yet, we popped 50 people, good job everyone
but i know more than 50 people browse this board
so, whats your excuse for not participatinf in /mlp/s largest collab?
>hijack public library computer
>record 2 minutes
>run like hell out
Nobody goes to the library anymore, so you'd be good. Just don't visit a campus library. People stull use those
So we just got out of a meeting, discussing the animation to go along with this huge project, I'm not going to give anything away, but let's just say your sides are in for a real treat
We're still accepting singers, and not to sound like a desperate store owner the minute you walk out of their place, but
>Tell all your friends we're here!
I never did
>mfw I told my friends that this was happening
>"Oh god another one of these fucking autistic things"
Fuck those guys
Its only 'tonight' for another hour and a half here on glorious best coast USA, anon
I need sleep too you know
I guess that'd be pretty cool if they let us
Wait for confirmation from Songfag tho, this is his project, Im just the help
Also, we are pushing our own release this weekend, regardless of whenever this mulpalbum drops
not that I wish to discourage your from recording
I just won't be around after to download and fix it up until I get up
Tho I'm not gonna be a pussy and clock in at midnight and a half.
I'll just be here
Alright I posted on the other thread about having our song included and Ill be awaiting a response, we will be dropping this thing independantly of the ablum however as the music video we have planned goes slightly beyond just the song, but we can probably create a song only version for the album after we publish our project
Hey guys, I think this will be relevent to your interests.
The same channel also has instrumentals of other songs from it, I'd advise trying to save some of them before Hasbro MIGHT pull them down.
It does lack a lot of bass for most of the songs that was heard in the soundtrack. One case I think it's really good is in the song "Shine Like Rainbows" where its mixing is entirely different and it sounds a whole lot more spacious overall, especially for the voices. It's really good. I also like the version of "Rainbow Rocks" better.
What becomes apparent is that they literally just shifted the EQ for all the sounds in the tracks to emphasize the bass, and what ends up happening is that a lot of the vocals sound pretty fucking muddy in the soundtrack. I actually prefer the movie versions, the vocals which are the main emphasis in the songs really sound a whole lot better and natural.
That's what i get for having 1300 dollars in stuff just for listening to music.
Incoming music. You guys are awesome for putting this together
Yep, it is pretty glorious. I spent the money myself from my summer job this past summer. My mom and dad thought I was insane to spend it, but I have no buyers remorse. These headphones are pure ecstasy.
Yeah, also another thing is that volume-wise, the tracks are quieter on the movie versions overall, and that's a good thing since the "loudness war" that goes on with most music just ruins the quality.
The more and more I listen to the movie versions of the tracks, I like them a whole lot better. The sound is overall a lot more clean. I don't get why they had to ruin the album versions like they did, I didn't really notice at first until I listened to the blu-ray rips.
Ima bump this one last time
Anyone who hasn't yet participated but wants too this is your last day, so lets get at least a few more voices in here before we close up and start the final run
Saturday, its going to be Saturday that it will be released
The only reason its been changing at all is the huge amount of voices we have to work with and an underestimation on my part of the time it would actually take, but were pretty solid on Saturday as of right now, animation has started and were over 50% complete with voices, 30% of which was done in the last two days
As far as starting another thread I don't think that will be necessary, I think the lack of activity is a clear indication that anyone who wanted to participate already has, so we'll ultimately let this thread die off and start a new thread on Saturday when we release this on Youtube.
I've got in touch with a few good candidates for where to upload it and I'm pretty sure we'll do an article with Horse News, so be excited for that.
Otherwise know that we're hauling ass to get this thing done and we're hoping you will all love the final product, it's meant to represent /mlp/, in all its autism, and glory.

Hopefully I made it in time. Can't wait to see the end product of all this off pitch singing and trying to hit the high notes. Thanks Everyone! See you Saturday.
Were still accepting for the next 6 hours, so yes, and if anyone else wants to get in on this, last call for the hype train
