    bwrosas' commentary/reviews

    My review of the first of 4-5 issues introducing the new characters from the movie. Comments are Welcomed
  3. I played alot of elder scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition alot recently on my PS4 and this is a song i came across quite often in the game. I even managed to do the thuum tounge part, which took a bit to master. Hope you enjoy.
  4. Singing is by far a huge phenomenon in MLP. However, what is most important is maintaining the character's original voice while singing. The biggest issue is keeping a great shape in your vocal cords to keep airflow not only strong but the voice you are performing must remain in top shape at all times. The #1 rule when it comes to singing in character is to NEVER lose your character voice. That's the worse possible thing that can happen. Now, every character's voice is different. The fact is the Mane 6 are the characters the most song time, along with the CMC, Princesses and other side characters. This means that whenever you sing like a character, you will have to shape your vocal cords in order to not only get the proper airflow, but also make your voice sound like that character. Before we go any further, there are some important guidelines you must follow in order to keep your voice healthy and avoid hurting it due to singing improperly or allowing too much or too little airflow. KNOW YOUR LIMITS: This is perhaps the most important rule when it comes to singing in general. Always know what you can and cannot sing. It is great when you have a partner who can test your range. You can also test your range yourself. Everypony has a range, which is basically the gap of pitches they are able to sing. Don't Push Yourself Too Hard: This is a singer's greatest mistake. A lot of singers, including myself, want to be able to hit those higher notes, especially if you're at a concert with your favorite band, and you wanna be heard belting out the chorus of your favorite song. However, if the song is out of your range, don't push yourself to try to hit those notes, unless you use your head voice. We will talk about the head voice later. Maintain a Healthy Voice: Always drink before and after you sing. As a vocalist, you must keep your voice healthy at all times. Drink water preferably, but nothing with caffeine. Caffeine will dry you out quickly. Drinks high in electrolytes are known to help the voice as well. Now that we've covered the guidelines, we will now go on the part you all have been waiting for: How To Sing In Character! As you may know, there are many different MLP characters, but there are 9 mane characters that have singing roles. This includes the Mane 6 and the CMCs. The Princesses also have singing roles, but we will get to those later. Now, we will break down on how to hone the singing voice of each character. Princess Twilight Sparkle Princess Twilight Sparkle has two voice actors: Tara Strong being the mane one and Rebecca Shoichet. Rebecca Shoichet is her singing voice. Twilight's voice is quite smooth in character, and her comfortable singing range, or tessitura is between Bb3 and about a D5 (Using Midnight In Me as a reference since a D5 is the highest pitch sung in the song). Twilight Sparkle has hit higher notes, like in Find A Way, but notice how the singer retains the vowel sounds and open voice. To sing like Twilight, you have to make sure your voice is smooth. Don't focus too much on trying to get the voice to "sing loud". You will lose it automatically. Instead, take the time to warm it up to it's upper range, especially if you're going to be covering a song like Winter Wrap-Up, which has that one big section where Twilight is hanging in the soprano range. Fluttershy Fluttershy's voice is a very delicate and gentle voice. What you need here is to make your voice sound airy. However, do not overdo this effect, as it will be much more difficult to hit higher notes. Fluttershy can hit pretty high notes, as witnessed in "Music in the Treetops", where she hits an A5. Some say Fluttershy is an alto, but she is really a mezzo-soprano. To sing like Fluttershy, you need a delicacy in your voice. Give it that angelic airy sound, but again, don't overdo the airy effect. You can add vibrato for effect, but it is recommended you reserve vibrato for only the higher notes. Rarity Rarity's voice has a double whammy. Her voice not only has a bit of the airy voice like Fluttershy, but it also has somewhat of a British accent. This means that when Rarity sings, her vowels will be naturally taller. In singing, "taller vowels", does not refer to volume, but rather than the shape of the mouth and jaw. The sound will be much brighter and open sounding, which gives more room for expression. In comparison to singing songs in a normal contemporary fashion, Rarity uses the traditional chorale type of singing, which indeed enforces tall vowels. If you listen to any song or part that Rarity sings, you will hear the vowels sounding more open. To illustrate this, let's examine the first two lines of "Art of the Dress" Thread by thread Stitching it together Now, as you can see, reading these two lines normally would produce a contemporary and bland voice. However, adding the tall vowels adds brightness, which means the words will be pronounced differently, as shown below Threahd baui threahd Stihtching it togethuhr Notice the word "by" is pronounced with a stress on the sound "au". This is why Rarity has one of the most difficult singing voices to master, because you have to focus on formulating the tall vowels properly and deliver a smooth and pleasing tone. Remember, tall vowels does not equal louder singing, it means to enunciate and open your jaw. Think of Rarity's voice like an opera singer's voice, except it is not as projected and slightly held back, with some delicacy on top. Rainbow Dash Rainbow Dash may seem like an easy one to master, but don't forget about her raspy and somewhat scratchy voice. Her singing range is of an alto. The biggest mistake a singer can make when trying to imitate Rainbow Dash is that they make their voice so raspy and scratchy that either their throat starts to itch a lot, or they suffer multiple voice cracks. Rainbow Dash's voice does crack during regular speech, but is 100% clear. To sing like Rainbow, you've got to grasp the balance of raspiness and clarity of voice. Pronunciation should be that of everyday speech. Make sure you have enough airflow and breath control to sustain longer notes. Vibrato should only be reserved for long notes that last 3 or more beats. Applejack Applejack has that thick country accent that affects all vowel sounds. This means that all articulators will be used. The articulators include, the tip of the tongue, roof of the mouth, lips and teeth. The country accent adds twang to the sound of each word. Some vowel sounds are more affected my others. The most noticeable changed vowel sound is the short e sound "eh". It's sound changes to "eeye" or "ee-yeh". Therefore, the word "generation", would sound like "geeyeneration". If you listen to Applejack's speech closely, you can even hear this outside of singing. Therefore, to sing like Applejack, you must adopt to a thick country accent. However, don't try to force it out. It will end up becoming sloppy. Instead, let it come natural and use your articulators to help you with the pronunciation. Applejack's range is quite comfortable, from middle c to the b right below treble c. Pinkie Pie Pinkie Pie has that tricky voice that hangs in the mid-upper alto range. It is quite loud and squeaky. Still, this doesn't mean you completely forget about all you learned in this thread. Pinkie's voice requires control and balancing. Pinkie's voice also has what is called a glottal attack. This means that when Pinkie says a vowel sound, it is sharp and instant. The glottis opens up on a whim and air flows through. This is not necessarily a good thing because it can wear out the vocal cords faster because they open up quickly. Her range starts at the Bb right below middle C. Pinkie's singing is actually slightly lower than her speaking voice. To sing like Pinkie Pie, you'll need to adapt to a sort of squeaky voice. The one cautionary point you need to take in is that you must not emphasize the squeak or else you'll wear your voice out and may even cause damage. Applebloom Applebloom is a foal, but she's growing up, so her voice has gotten a little deeper, but not much. Her voice is in the alto range but more of the upper alto range. Some could say she's a mezzo-soprano but I'd say she's alto 1. Again, Applebloom like Applejack has that country accent. Everything from Applejack's voice should apply to Applebloom, but Applebloom must sound more childlike. Sweetie Belle Sweetie Belle has one of those "mixed" voices. This means that the character of her voice sort of "borrows" from other characters I have explained. Younger Sweetie Belle has a more squeaky voice. However, now that both Sweetie Belle and her voice actor are growing up, Sweetie's voice has lost some of it's squeakiness, which makes things a little easier. Sweetie Belle has two distinguished types of singing voices, her soft singing voice and her power singing voice. To sing Sweetie's soft voice, adapt a somewhat childlike tone, but not as childlike as Applebloom, unless you're doing younger Sweetie Belle's voice. For the power voice, the one thing you have to make sure is you have total control, Sweetie Belle doesn't sing that high unless you're doing one of those crazy songs like 99 Buckets of Oats on the Wall. Even then, when Sweetie Belle is singing this high (C5 to G5, the range for 99 Buckets of Oats on The Wall), you still have to have some degree of control, especially if you're singing that high and that loud. Sweetie Belle's voice range sits right in the mezzo-soprano range. Scootaloo Scootaloo's voice is quite tomboyish. Because of this, it is hard for Scootaloo herself to hit those higher notes, which is why her range ends at the B right below C5 or treble C. Some of the raspiness from Scootaloo's tomboyish voice carries over to her singing voice. To sing like Scootaloo, you gotta make your voice slightly scratchy, but not too much. Remember, a scratchy voice can contribute to an itchy throat, which can wear out your vocal cords. Princess Luna Princess Luna's voice is quite smooth, but it can become quite powerful. Princess Luna is an absolute alto. Some can argue that she can be a filly tenor, because of the characteristics of her voice. I say, that if she was placed in a choir, she would most like be an alto 2. Though we've only heard Luna sing twice in the show, we can now distinguish two different singing voices of Princess Luna. The first voice is found in "You'll Play Your Part" where her voice is warm and both. The second of the voices is found in "Luna's Future", where her voice takes on a darker and more airy character. Remember, an airy voice cannot be too airy. Plus, Luna's darker voice is not as airy as Fluttershy's voice. To sing like warm Luna, you'll need to focus on pronouncing your words clear and maintain a delicate and sweet tone. To sing like dark Luna, take on an airy character and somewhat operatic voice. However, the biggest thing is that Luna's vowel sounds are not as tall as other voices. Princess Celestia Princess Celestia has that beautiful and warm motherly voice, which is why she is one of the easiest characters to sing as. She is best placed in the contralto range, due to her voice being able to reach some of the mid baritone range. In Celestia's Ballad, Celestia's highest note is a B right below C5 (treble C). This is the highest note she has sang so far. In "You'll Play Your Part", due to polyphony (many voices singing different melodies), she takes the lower range of the song. To sing like Celestia, the most important thing you must do is to have that warm and motherly voice. Be delicate with it. Celestia's voice wasn't meant to be powerful, unless there's a situation going on. Also, Celestia's voice wasn't designed to lurk in the soprano and upper alto range, so try to stay between E3 and A4. You may go up to C5 but cap it at there, or else you'll lose the warm and motherly voice as you try to take it up in range. Princess Cadence Princess Cadence's voice is more of a sisterly voice. It is caring and is classified as a soprano, specifically 1st soprano if she were placed in a choir. The highest note we have heard Cadence sing was in This Day Aria, where Cadence hit an F#5. When Cadence sings, she mixes her contemporary sisterly voice, with an operatic voice that consists of tall vowels. Like Rarity's voice, the tall vowels should be open and clear. Every "ah" should sound like "auh", "e" like "eh" and so forth. Also, when Cadence goes beyond C5, she starts to use her head voice, also known as falsetto, especially when she hits the F#5 in This Day Aria. Singing like Cadence is quite the challenge, for you have to not only be able to be clear in your tessitura but also make sure you have a strong falsetto, especially if you're writing a song that exercises the higher soprano range. Now I know what you stallions are thinking: "Hay what about us males? Don't we get any characters?" You certainly do...three...for now. Spike may be a boy, but his voice actor is a female. Big Mac Eeyup, you stallions saw him coming. Big Macintosh would considered a bass, for the highest note we have heard him sing was in "Find The Music In You", an F3. Big Mac has a little bit of a country accent but not as much as his sister Applejack. To sing like Big Mac, you really just have to have that natural deep voice for him. Your voice must be classified either as a bass or baritone, but bass is highly recommended. Like Applejack, you gotta have that country accent, but remember, it is not as heavy as hers. Feather Bangs A very new character, introduced in Season 7, Feather bangs has that "cool guy" type of voice. He is fit in the upper tenor range. In comparison to many of the other singing voices, Feather Bang's voice is of the contemporary era. You can hear some of that heavy accented "Michael Jackson" flare. Also, Feather Bangs exhibits what's known as a "glottal attack". This means that the glottis, the slit-like opening between the vocal cords and the airway is opened forcefully, causing an instant sound. This can become unhealthy and cause the vocal cords stress due to how quickly they open. The biggest mistake one can do with singing like Feather Bangs is that they glottal attack to the point where the upper notes of the voice become thin and soon, they will be lost. Rumble Rumble, who spoke for the very first time in Season 7, has a somewhat teenage jazzy voice, which he may strain at certain times, like in the song "Blank Flanks Forever", which is the only song we've heard him perform thus far in the series. Rumble's highest note sung is a G#4, which is just about his limit. To sing like Rumbler, make sure you have plenty of water on you, as you gotta combine a strong tenor voice with a childlike edge, which means you may have to strain, but try not to. And lastly...but certainly not least... Spike Spike is voiced by a female, which is understandable. Spike's voice has that childlike edge, which makes it somewhat difficult to sing. Spike's voice is considered mezzo-soprano in a full choir setting, but mid-upper voice in child's singing settings. Spike can hit an A4 very comfortably, but somewhat struggles to hit a C5 even though his voice is capable of doing it. Spike's tessitura is most likely from middle C to A4. To sing like Spike, you'll need a childlike voice along with a little bit of edge. Just try not to strain and go above Spike's normal tessitura. Well folks, we've reached the end of our journey on exploring the singing voices of our favorite pony characters. There may have been characters I've left off, but I will certainly update this guide in the future to include movie characters and other ponies that gain singing roles. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to PM me at anytime and I'll get back to you when I can.
  5. Ever since Rainbow Rocks, I've been hoping for the Dazzlings to make another appearance. I mean, we saw some of the Crystal Prep students again in "Dance Magic" so its not like Hasbro's above recurring EQ character cameos. I thought they were pretty awesome villains and I'd love to see them again (maybe even reformed, that's kind of always been a thing with FiM). Plus I have a huge crush on Adagio (yes, I'm one of those weird people with a crush on fictional characters, but I don't think that's unusual for these parts). Heh.

    General Do you know Soul Train?

    A long time ago, there was this show called Soul Train on T.V. during the 70's. I randomly found reruns of it on a cable channel a few years ago. I fell in love with it! The people, the dancing, the bright lights... the music are all so magical. I collected old dvds of the show and kept them safe for years. Here are my favorite clips: If you don't know me by now and Me and mrs. jones and Line Dance Sometimes... I wish I could time travel to the 70's and be with these people... what about you all?

    Stormy sings

    Hi guys. My old thread of this is kinda out dated and burried and just full of my poor grade videos and song covers that have been hidden or what etc. I dont like them LOL! So here is a more updated and "modern" version of that old thread. Trying to keep it exciting. So some of you know I sing. I do mostly song covers, including MLP songs. Usually I do these with my partner Denz (super talented guitarist and music wiz), but I do also do collabs with some of my music friends around too. I just want to share with you some of my best and newest stuff! Only one here is an original song - collab with Four Strings. Now I am open to singing for original songs and I am also working on my very first song, with help from Denz, as I have the voice, but not really much in the way of knowing how to write a song! So hopefully I can share that with you guys soon! In fact this weekend, I am on stage as backing singer for Tennyson's Twin (UK acoustic, folk) for 2 gigs and I hope we will have some videos to show you afterwards. I am the official backing singer. So because of this I am a little swamped (as well as UK ponycon) so if anyone wants to collab with me or has a request, please let me know. I am likely to be able to do these from November (after ukponycon). In the works: - Midnight In Me (with Denz) - Try Everything ( with Regdeh) - What can I do for You (with Steely Hooves) - Own original song (with Denz)
  8. Hey there guys! Just sharing an MLP fan project to try and help fill more casting spots. We need MALE and FEMALE voices of all kinds, please note that all most of the characters have some sort of singing part. There are various Canon Characters in this project that still need voices, come check it out! Find all the info in this Youtube video, I'll also include a link to the casting call roles.

    Summer Sings ^~^

    hey guys, so, I recorded a little thing and wanted to know what you all think ^^ don't be afraid to give some critique, as long as it's constuctive and all, I know I still can improve a lot but I'm quite please with how it sounds ^^ I was thinking of maybe starting a youtube channel at some point in the future, still unsure. but yea, I just wanted to share this with you all! here's my cover of 'lie' by 'circus P' http://vocaroo.com/i/s1gxjZ9zwcMi
  10. Hello. This time I have a special thing. With a girl-friend, we have decided to make a french version of My Cadence by M.Mosier. I have made a new instrumental and I have tried to put some quality in it. It was not easy but I hope that the result will sound correct; So, here is the link : I hope you'll enjoy the sound even if it's not the same langage than the original . Have a good evening . Dam
  11. I dunno about you, but I have the feeling when we get to the episode that Spike discovers where he comes from, I got the feeling it might be a musical! Cause it's a very important part of Spike's life being accomplished, like Twilight being a princess, and the CMCs getting their cutie marks! Maybe Newbie Dash would've been better if the "mimicking her friends" thing was a song! I mean, every eventful episode that shows a character accomplishing they've always wanted has a song in it. Newbie Dash was the first for that to happen! So my point is, I really think the episode Spike discovers his origin would be a musical episode for him, since quite a few main characters had musical episodes already! I know some of you don't like Spike's singing, but think about it: would all that singing be worth it if you got to hear EMBER sing? Ember's VA is a singer, so if she was asked to sing, she would! Maybe the other dragons would sing too in a viking chorus-like style! So what do ya think? Spike's origins episode being a musical? Wanna hear Ember sing? If we're going to expect an episode like this, it's not gonna be this season, that's for sure! Maybe season 8 or 9!

    MLP songs

    What MLP songs are there? I wan't to do covers of these songs, but I can't think of many. Lullaby for a Princess Luna's Response This Day Aria Pinkie Pies Parasprite Polka what other songs are there?
  13. Happy $500 stretch goal reached. At this writing, we have accumulated $594 for charity: water. So here comes another solo song. Yes, that's two in a row. But this time we're opening it up to popular vote*. Also, instead of forcing a staff to embarrass themselves, we're opening it up to our generous donors, both staff and non-staff. Also, you can nominate the song! Any member can throw their holiday song of choice in the thread below, and I'll add to that in the poll. So, If you donate at least $5 from the start of MCM V until December 2nd, you can enter the poll. All you have to do is write to me that you're interested, and I'll add you. Polls will be open from 11PM Eastern tonight through December 2nd at 11PM Eastern, and then I'll declare the "winner" to sing the chosen song. bwhahaha. The earlier the better, because you'll have more face time in the polls. You can show your interest in here, a PM to me, or I'll come track you down like a duck. So let's get to sanging! *as opposed to the Poniverse electoral college....too soon? EDIT: Troblems won and the file will be added once she's finished. Congratulations!
  14. Hi. If you want a male vocalist in your next piece of music PM me. I have been singing since the age of 3 and have perfect pitch. I enjoy all types of genre's. I can rap (some) and have been recognized for several vocal awards in the past. If you would like a sample of a recording to listen please PM me, or, leave a reply down below letting me know you are interested. I'm not looking for any payment or royalty, I just want to get my voice heard in the community. Thanks, - S P.S - I have a Blu Yeti microphone w/ pop filter and amazing sound quality so don't worry about that. Edit - Also, if you are another aspiring artist and are struggling with anything musical, let me know in a PM or something. I have a fairly empty schedule when I'm not live streaming on Twitch [insert shameful plug here] and can take time out of my lazy life to help anyone. Don't be shy, hit me up, I don't bite!

    Is Rarity the Rihanna of MLP?

    So I was just recalling some clips from an old 2012 segment of Oprah and it got me thinking: Rarity and Rihanna seem quite similar. Both have compelling beauty, amazing voices, stay true to their origins whilst mixing with the "high life", and are serious about their dedication to fashion and clothing design. They also have had run-ins with selfish boys and whilst remaining cool over those who love them, can snap at times. Even their smiles and eyelashes look similar:
  16. http://vocaroo.com/i/s15Qqm2A1Fvq You know, i feel like some people expected me to sing this ever since i first got here. But i felt like this would be way too obvious. But now, i think it was kinda time for it. Besides, our community leader Koukatsu kinda gave me the last push. Have fun and if you feel sleepy and lose your free will, i will not hold any account for it.
  17. This was something i wanted to sing for awhile now, because this is one of my favorite Serj Tankian songs, who became famous for being the frontman of the band System of a Down. It's a bit more on the political site, but it's a strong and emotional song nonethenless and i tried my best to do it, eventhough i can't be compared to Serj. Enjoy
  18. Pony fans have a variety of reasons for why they continue to enjoy pony, with the songs among the most common, but barring conventions many find themselves at a loss for vocally sharing their love of the musical splendor of FiM and all the spin-offs it's inspired. Well, look no further darlings; if you're in the New England area, then the New England Bronytones would absolutely love to make your acquaintance. The New England Bronytones are a group of individuals dedicated to practicing and performing official songs from the show and the movies, with a focus on perfecting those songs with existing group harmonies while modifying those without into harmonic ensemble numbers. As of now, the group has only practiced one song ("Find the Music in You") comfortably enough to perform on a moment's notice, having clocked in around seven or eight solid Sunday practice sessions prior to a few "spontaneous" attempts at Bronycon 2015. Admittedly, our planning wasn't as on-point as it could have been, to include missing the (barely advertised) cut off point for the otherwise-ideal Open Mic event, but even so our efforts were not completely unappreciated and despite varying levels of talent and all-around low-levels of experience, we still view our proto-debut as something of a small success. Unfortunately, though the dream of improved harmony continues to be near to our hearts, a few of our members (including myself, quite sadly) may/will be moving away very shortly, leaving some newfound silence where once there was song. Un-unfortunately, that's where you come in! We found ourselves perhaps over-crowded for roles, with the notable exception of soprano, during "Find the Music in You," but future endeavors should prove much friendlier for larger ensembles, including the current focus song/mashup "Winter Wrap Up/True True Friend." One of our most dedicated members has been hard at work piecing together the sheet music for us to practice with (on this song and many, many more), and even if you can't necessarily read sheet music we have plenty of ways of soloing out your chosen part(s) so that you can tune your voice to it. With nearly an entire year before the next Bronycon, there is an ample amount of time to add and perfect a few more songs to the Bronytones repertoire, and perhaps even enough time to throw some simple-yet-swanky choreography into the mix as well! We have so generated so many interesting ideas in the few months we've been together, from individual song mashup/remixes to a giant seven-or-eight song continuous medley designed to dazzle...but the only way it'll all come together is with your help! The only things we ask from those interested in joining are the following: that you have (at a minimum) enough confidence to sing in front of fellow bronies, that you are committed to practicing and improving, and that you are not so completely tone-deaf that you cannot be trained to at least match a pitch within your range. We are hardly spectacular ourselves (yet), as we began our group in the same manner of welcoming all-comers, and therefore possess a varying range of ability (none of us can be considered even close to professional). That said, time spent paying attention to the notes, working on enunciation, improving vocal range, and learning the sound dynamics of the music has markedly improved the group's sound. If you absolutely adore the concept, but still don't think you can manage what we require for singers, we still encourage you to at least show up to see if you might bring something to the table in terms of arrangements, AV wizardry, costuming, and/or choreography. We're a pretty friendly group, which I suppose rates a "duh, bronies," but even so we try to go the extra mile to make newcomers feel like they can make a positive impact our efforts; plus we try to add some fun social elements to our break times so that it's not all just business. As far as when we get together, practices are currently every weekend on Sundays, with the next currently-scheduled-one on for August 30th, but this is naturally a difficult schedule for many and we are discussing shifting towards a more bi-weekly routine. As mentioned, though I'm the founder of this group and one of the most practiced/enthusiastic regarding singing, I'm also most definitely going to be leaving the area before September ends. In the spirit of keeping the music alive, I started the official Meetup page for the group and as you can see I intend on promoting it wherever there might be interest so as to bolster the ranks and get the name out there. Additionally, I have left some sound gear with the members, including a dual-amp/mixer combo, a 7-unit wireless mic set, a Bluetooth/optical/USB soundbar set, and a Scarlett music conversion tool for PC mixing...we haven't made extensive use of it so far, but with new members comes new ideas for how best to improve and showcase our sound, so I'm sure someone will find it all handy. ...this may have been a bit hasty on my part, as I do intend on starting a new chapter in this musical endeavor wherever I end up next, but perhaps the competition will end up needing the assistance to prevail over my next edition? A friendly challenge, as it were. Y'know, it actually came as something of a shock to me, when I finally got the ball rolling on this idea, that there didn't seem to be much in the way of dedicated MLP singing groups up in the Northeast; the only counterpart I've really seen so far are the SoCal Ponytones out on the West Coast. We would love to rival their numbers someday soon, as well as their number of fulfilled performances, but we can only do that with improved levels of membership, participation, and effort. So please, if any of this sounds awesome (how could it not?), hit up the Meetup group. You may end up being the practiced powerhouse who takes the group to the next level, or the excited newcomer with a chance to finally strut your singing stuff; whatever the case, the New England Bronytones are waiting with open arms. "You're gonna' fiiiiiiiiiind you've got the music, got the music, got the music in YOU!"
  19. SFM animator EDPlus asked me to write a song for him. He provided the lyrics and I wrote the music. The song appears in his latest video, but you can view the song by itself bellow, as well as an instrumental with sheet music! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJidr7xnyHs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2TZqzxlZLc
  20. I, Bronyance, am looking for as many people as possible to join me in a very large Christmas collaboration. I'm hoping to get a whole bunch of people in the fandom to get together, from lesser known to widely known, to create a massive Christmas song, similar to the Massive Smile Project: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaG-JijAr-c And Band Aid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1jeiC-JEsI Where a ton of people get together and collaborate both for fun and maybe even for charity! Even PMVers or animators might want to get in on the fun if they want! I'm starting out here on the MLP forums to get a good stong base going for the project, then we can branch out into even more musicians! If you're at all interested, reply here of send a PM my way. When I'm sure we'll have a good amount of people we can start organizing. If this doesn't come about, that's fine and we can move on, but I'm determined to make an effort. So let's try and do this. If you know any other musicians, well known or not, send them my way and get them to help do this. EDIT: Just to clear up, this doesn't have to be ready for Christmas 2014, but starting the idea around a Christmas seemed better to me. CURRENT LIST OF INTERESTED/CONFIRMED: - Bronyance (Confirmed) - MandoPony (Interested) - General Mumble (Curious/Interested) - IvoryDreamer (Interested) - Treble Bolt (Interested) - RandomSelect (Interested) Thank you so much for all your time.

    After Drawing : Music

    Windskyed's songs / Covers AAAAAANND Hello again !. I hope you are all fine. This topic is for my audio art this time (If I can call it like that). In the past I was active in the fandom, but after a personnal problems period, I was unable to continue. Now it's good, I return slowly. I have didn't always loved the music but one day I have tried to sing and, finally, It became a drug. I have a broken voice since my birth. But maybe, it's because I have never took singing lessons. When I could, I will do it. So, in waiting, I put 2 things I have done recently. Cover of Awesome as I wanna be : I'm French, and I need to learn the English. Singing is a good way I think. Please, be gentle with my accent. And, I have made a small mistake in Lyrics. Yeah, I have tried to learn the song without text. Just with my ears. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxBN3bdH4aM Orchestral Song composition - Windskyed Escape : This is a song for my audio / illustrated project. I work on it and, soon, I will talk about it here . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyXQSWbl5Fo Others song will come soon . Old songs or recents. Wind.
  22. Hello everyone, I ask you for your help! After watching the new MLP:EQG movie Friendship Games there was two songs that stood out to me, the CHS Rally and the ACADECA song. The song I think would be best for multiple people to take part in would be the ACADECA song. Doesn't matter if you can or cant sing, your welcome to take part! I really want to pull of a project that brings some of us on this forum together. I was thinking a joint collaboration effort (Sort of like the smile project Jeric did) gwhere people lend their voices and hopefully have fun You can sing in an impression of any of the wonder colts, shadow bolts or in your own voice, It doesn't matter Right now the main thing that's needed an instrumental of Twilight and Sunset's part. (At 2:00 in the video) Animators/artists are also accepted to do EQG versions of the participants OCs but that isn't a major thing If there is anyone that would like to help, please send me a personal message so I know you're on board and then send whatever you want to help with (vocals, images, animation, music) to my email: >> liamn1998@aol.com<< Just title the email appropriately and include what part you want to do with the file including your part as well as how you want me to credit you (youtube channel, soundcloud name. If none I'll either state you MLPF name or none) DEADLINE IS END OF NOVEMBER I understand this is a big stretch, especially for a non-profit project, but I really think it would be an awesome outcome if we got this to work and everything is highly appreciated! Of course everyone who took part would also be credited (Unless they don't want to). This is the song:
  23. What I need: People to do singing voices for the following characters: Tirek, Sombra, Discord, Chrysalis, and Nightmare Moon. Someone who can write suitable music for this. Perhaps you can alter the actual instrumental version or create your own. The original one just doesn't work with the song. I think an altered version would be best, though. Someone who can design the cover art for this. What My Villain Role is Telling Me [Tirek] I hate these Crystal Ponies, they're wanting to be free They talk about this Crystal Fair and how fun it would be I wish they would surrender, and no one would get free It's got to be my destiny, and it's what my villain role is telling me [sombra] I try creating chaos, turn Equestria upside-down But no matter what I do, the ponies turn my plans around I can't create unbalance, no chaos I can see It's got to be my destiny, and it's what my villain role is telling me [Discord] I don't care much for feeding bugs, and stealing love is not so great I really don't appreciate that emotion is all they ate I have so many mouths to feed, I don't like being me But it has to be my destiny, 'cause it's what my villain role is telling me [Chrysalis] The time on the moon was dull, I've gotten very bored I have to make the nighttime last, It's what ponies abore I do not like this job I don't want it any more My destiny is not pretty, but it's what my villain role is telling me [Nightmare Moon] I am all for stealing magic, but I don't like this prison Cerberus is guarding me making sure that I don't run I have to keep on trying, for everyone can see [Nightmare Moon and Tirek] It's got to be [sombra] It's got to be [Discord] My destiny [Chrysalis] My destiny [Nightmare Moon, Tirek, and Sombra] And it's what my villain role [Discord and Crysalis] It's what my villain role [Nightmare Moon, Tirek, Sombra, Discord, Chrysalis] Yes, it's what my villain role is telling me! If you are interested, do the following steps: For singing: Record yourself singing each verse. Make sure you keep the same tempo as the original song "What my Cutie Mark is Telling Me." If you need to, alter your voice so it fits the character. Send me the recording, the character you are voicing as, and what you want your name to appear as on the credits. For creating music: If you changed the tempo of the song, specify how much you changed it in percentages. If you increased the tempo, give a positive number. If you decreased the tempo, give a negative number. Send me the recording and what you want your name to appear as on the credits. For cover art: Make sure the cover art is in a high resolution, but not too high. If you have to make it too large, it's OK. Just don't make the file so small that it will be pixilated when it covers a full screen of an average computer. Send me the picture and what you want your name to appear as on the credits. I need the files to be sent to me in a way I can download them. Please make sure to scan each file before sending them to me. Send everything to me via messenger. If putting the files together proves difficult, I may need help. I don't know if I need help or not, though.

    Need male voice

    I need a male voice that can sing, and has a good mic to use. The voice that I am looking for is an equivalent to this.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOt6ppIBOd4 It is for a MLP parody song. I can't pay anyone, so this is just a free thing I am hoping for someone to do. You can do whatever you want with the finished parody, and so will I. There will most definitely be several takes on a single line, so if you do make it there will be a lot of re-singing to do. unless you're amazing at singing, and understand the breaks and tones of the song.
  25. http://vocaroo.com/i/s0zE0eAe3Ts0 I understand that the background music is not from the actual song and is just a C64. But i couldn't find a better thing, so i just roll with it. Enioy.
