I'm thinking about doing the karaoke competition but I was wondering if it's okay to do a Japanese song that isn't connected to Anime?
I did find the karaoke version of the song I'm thinking of doing (i.e. a version without the singer in it)
Yep. You can, (and I can say cuz I makes the rules!)
Anyway, one of the competitions will allow for Japanese music of any source, anime or not. It was that way last year, too, we've just done a little reorganizing.
By the way what song? And can I please get a copy?
Word of the wise, I think you can only pick one song for the actual competition. But if you still want to do all these songs you can do them during open mic. (I'm not the expert so please, so one who is, clarify)
And as a slightly unrelated question, when will the official rules for the karaoke competition be up (approximately when)? I'd like to know so I can start practicing on a certain song. I'm still hoping to try a Japanese non-anime song but I still don't know if it will be allowed. If not, I'll have to make another choice or try one of my filks.
You can only do one song in the competition. However, there will be two competitions, hopefully karaoke rooms, and an open mic session, if all goes well.
I will have the rules up as soon as I can. They are already pretty established, its just a question of getting it onto the site. Sorry about the delay, but if you have any questions, please PM me.
On a different note...
I am having the most miserable time finding karaoke versions of songs with scrolling lyrics. I'd like the mp3+g format so I can easily organize songs for the competition. Any one having a deeper knowledge of a good place to order discs please HELP! Even the people who I've asked who make there livings at karaoke are having trouble finding sources. I'm willing to create the tracks myself, if someone can give me some good advice on what program to use. Worst case scenario, we'll have to use the vocal fader again.
Please keep telling me what you want to hear. I'll keep compiling right up to the competition if I can.
