guru gonna gimme 0.5 omg.. :dohdoh :shoot

victor.. u wanted to change the pitch and did you? anyway it's at effect>time/pitch>stretch (u can experiment with the rest too)
Maybe adding some delay effects can do the tricks too.. simply test it.. omg but u're so busy these days.

I suppose the judges wont undermine your score simply for the background music.. ask guru hehe

The BG music wouldn't affect your score. I am not that mean...yet

EiS is right for once...and for that I will bump your score to a 1 ^_^

Actually, it's a pretty rare problem(It's my first time encounter this problem). The vocal is removed, and I know it's normal that there are still some very low volume original vocal left right? however, this time, the origianl vocal is low BUT the timing of that vocal is somehow become SLOWER compare the bg music. So If i sing normally, my singing won't cover the original vocal because the original vocal is now slower than the bg music...

Glad to hear that BG music woudln't affect my score. Thx ;)

see? many ppl will have the same problem if the winner pick a song unknown to most... so, how's my proposal going? instead of the winner picks a song, the winner picks a singer...

After consulting alf (although that is perhaps the most pointless thing to do ever...*bashes*), we came to the conclusion that the current system would be the most appropriate for this competition. Allow me to elaborate.

How many of you have heard of 胡彦斌 Your proposed solution will not bring about a change as you may have hoped for unless everyone starts picking Jay Chou and SHE. And doesn't that defeat the purpose of the contest?

Besides, must you know a song in order to sing it? We are not professionals, must we try to be perfect all the time? In addition, you have the choice whether if you want your song to be released by the judges so if you feel embarrassed about it, no one will hear it.

You must not forget this is a fun event. We give points for participation. In fact, if you participate in every week, you will have more points than someone who comes just for 1 week and wins that particular round.

And that is that. If you have any further comments or suggestions, please don't hesitate to speak out.

Regards,

:shock: stop bashing alf and putting his name in ur every post. :whomp:

btw, yeah thats the fun of this contest.. for the winner to decide the song(s) for the contestants of the next round. i thought it's really cool. if u dont like/cant sing the song(s), then come again the next round. :D so far, the contestants who've submitted their recordings did quite good.. which sets a high standard for this contest.

o.O awwww dont bash alf LOL..... hes mr alfie?

well, i think the song choices, are rather hard for the non-chinese ppl to participate..since not only do we have to listen to them repeatedly, but we have to search for pinyin >.>
so....romanize the song selections when you first release the choices and thatll give them an adequate amt of time to search AND record. =]

I think this is really confusing.

So, I joined.. but I don't know what I'm suppose to sing.
And also, it would a lot easier for everybody if there are karaoke/instrumentals for the songs picked out.

It would also be a lot more easier if every change was done in the first post, that includes dates, contestants, and the songs picked out. Cuz I'm really confused right now.

Just my opinion though. :P



Oh .. yeah , I just read the stuff posted above. And I just want to say that so what if you don't know the song or the singer. Then, LEARN. I don't know any of those songs GURU picked out except for JJ Lin's No.89757. And I only know JJ Lin & James Blunt & Faye Wong. And I joined fairly late, no, very late. What I'm doing now? I'm picking out a song and learning it.

However, I do agree picking out a singer instead of a song is better. I suggest for GURU to reconsider. :)


BTW, I'm singing 爱如空气

It's time for EiS' naggy opinion... good reasoning everyone. I think guru score on his ground.. It is indeed for me, very interesting to have the winner pick the songs. Firstly it's the inflexibility that makes it more interesting and secondly it is also from here it forms the platform to differentiate the singers as scores accumulated base on participation too. This is really testing us.. versatility, skill, consistency and all.. seriously this is an all round competition :yeah

I've thoughts about selecting 'singer as a criteria' - one possibility is everyone will start choosing the easiest/fav songs from the particular singer. This aint following the idea of the competition if guru ever wanted to set the difficulty level high at the first place.. *what ya think organiser, the guru of all gurus???* :noclue Anyway, you do good and win for the round then you'll get the chance to the coming songs that's in your favor. Fair enough!

Nevertheless because of such difficulties for everyone else, it will be good to expand the duration of each round cus weren't not recruited singer who can dedicate much time on singing. Onehalf week or longer would be nice! TY

Ideally, songs for each round should have at least one mando, one canto, and one eng.

~The end~ :walkdog ^ no offense..
