VOCR: Vocal Remixing Compo- WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Recommended Posts

I'm so excited, this is the first time I've won anything! I didn't know track 7 was yours Zyko, I didn't know you could sing like that, it was very heartfelt. I voted you second behind pixie - we all know that she would win! Thanks for everyone who voted for me on this round!

Sorry I didn't vote, everyone. Congrats to the winners! The rap tracks especially caught me off-guard...was really impressed my the lyrics and how fast everyone can throw those words. Bladiator's intro was especially funny. Clorophil really impressed me. I didn't know that Zyko had it in him, too.

Of course, Pixie is as impressive as usual. Loved it. But wow Malcos...very nice pipes, man. You put up a good fight against Pixie, which is of course the most experienced vocalist of them all.

Again...congrats to everyone. Looks like Zircon's planning a huge vocal collab here for all the winners.

I, Malcos, personally thank each and every one of you who voted for me. Though I am a respected member of the community already, I hope that no one thinks I used "hacks" on this competition as it was done blindly.

Huzzah to me!!

I second that. Congratulations to everyone involved, bar none, including the voters. VOCR has been a monumental success in my view (even if I didn't win ;) )

Ah, Indian food.

But yes, I would like to do a big collab and flesh out the track (including GIGASAMPLEZ) for some serious ownage. pixie's sultry, airy vox + Malcos' R&B sexiness + the illest flows from blad + 2P. Sounds like a winner in my head, so let's do it. :)

...well when I get back from MAGfest anyway. :x

Pixie, if I may ask a question : what gear did you use in recording (and mixing) your voice ?

I used my new Samson C01U USB mic (with pop filter and shock absorbing stand), and Garageband for editing! Not sure if I like how the bridge section turned out with the FX I used, but zircon's a production guru, so if we keep it in I'm sure he can spruce it up.

Yay! I can't wait to work with you guys!!! This is gonna be an awesome mega collab, assuming everyone's all for it.

Zolborn and I lost (prolly didn't come close to winning), but I sure as heck learned a lot for the next VOCR. If anyone has any comments to offer on our submission (#11), I would be more than happy to hear them.

USB mic, eh Pixie? I've heard of that before in OCR when I was asking about mics. Sounds like a pretty cool technology. Is the quality much better when you connect a mic via usb rather than my Shure connected directly to the PC's mic opening?

Oh...I was right about the mega vocal collab. Yay. :)

Congrats to all the winners! I can't wait to hear the end output from all of you.

This was definatly a lot of fun to do, and while I wished I could have pulled something better together, I'm still happy with what I created.

When's the next round start?!?

Good job on a successful, first-time OCR vocal contest, you guys!

Malcos, I really dug what you did with the chorus. Good job controlling your voice and writing complimentary harmonies. Your vocals sound clean and well produced.

pixie, your vocals are divine. Simply awesome. You also happen to have wonderful production skills to boot. Scarily enough, as I was working on ideas in my own head for this comp, your initial "ooooh"'s sounded exactly like mine, haha.

bladiator, good job as well with your chorus. It's catchy and original, which is always a plus in my book. It's quite memorable in that respect as well, because of your choice of lyrics. After my 2nd listen, I was already singing and humming it, even during times when I wasn't actually listening to the song.

It just goes to show that the way lyrics mold themselves to the melody is every bit as important as coming up with an original melody to begin with. Lyrics have the potential to make or break a song and it seems you all have an understanding of that. Good job again, guys!

All of them were awesome, but I have to say I was really blown away by Malcos. And I mean like "holy fucking shit" levels of blown away.

I hope you guys do this again eventually, seeing the results is really inspiring.

No, no pitch correction tools used at all, my friends will tell you I hate that kind of stuff. I do often double track my vocals though (record twice), and that can sometimes my pitch sound better than it really is. I don't use pitch correction tools at all in any of my vocals - it's waaaaaay too much effort to set something like that up, and then correct it, while it takes seconds to just do another take. And if I can't reach the note, then I can't sing it, tough luck, I just come up with another melody that is in my range.
