VOCR: Vocal Remixing Compo- WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

Recommended Posts

pitch correction is for pussies

that's like saying reverb is for pussies.

i'm not saying it should be allowed for this compo, but pitch correction has been a standard practice in recording studios since the 80s and it was in use even earlier.

bro, since when did your sense of humor tank so profoundly?

c'mon - that reaked of sarcasm so badly, you can't even use the internet as an excuse

i'm sorry, it was so funny that it blew my brains right out of my skull. i was just taking a break from wiping my mind-goo off the walls to respond in the first place.

but really, i see those exact sort of comments frequently. you do too, obviously.

you weren't serious but somebody is thinking that exact thing. so i went for it anyways.

We did allow it for this round, but I don't think anybody used it, anyway. ^_~

Will we be able to see what was said about or mixes, or was that information in the votes only so you knew that it wasn't a popularity vote? I'm interested to see...

If any individuals would like to see what was said about their mixes, I think I could show you the comments (anonymously) through PM. But yes, the sentences I asked for were strictly for quality control purposes. I'm not going to post the votes publicly because it could stir things up. ^_~

"Hey, this sounds like Lover Reef!" That was lol-tastic. As far as the rest of the song goes, the lyrics were better than anything I could write.

I had heard Clorophil's "Duckbreaka" from the RoFL joke project, but this is the first time I've heard him do a serious rap, and it's better than I expected.

kudos to zyko, too. He's my favorite rapper in the community, and he didn't disappoint again for me.

Malcos was a big suprise for me. I haven't heard from him much musically lately, and here he comes not only with something new, but he can decently sing as well.

pixie's version was pretty good. I thought the lyrics were way past hokey, but I paid more attention to the vocal range. I think she proved here that she can sing the low notes as well as the high ones.

DragonAvenger was my favorite out of all the entries. I was not expecting a female vocal entry outside of pixie at all. She sounded fantastic. She had a country-western tone to it, which I enjoy.

I'd say this contest was a success, and I was very interested in it. I'm in the stages of planning a new remix project after Around the World finishes (or before, if I get antsy), and it is a complete vocal remix project. It's good to know that when I start the project, I'll have a good talent pool to draw from.

I may join in one of these contests sometime, but my voice isn't too great (anyone who remembers the BEER constests knows this. ;) ) Maybe if it was a month that had more metal/rock than r&b/hip-hop. Then I could bring out my angsty death metal growl. :)

Hey guys, just to let you know: I'm at MAGFest right now, so any requests for comments viewing will have to wait a few days. It'll take me a while to sort through my PM's, and right now I'm trying to hang out with everyone as much as I can before the con is over. ^-^

Hey guys! Just to let you know, the lovely and talented Malcos is going to host this next round. We'll probably be switching off in the future, to allow for personal breaks in between. Might take him a little while to find a new track, but keep your eyes peeled!
