Haha close but the aim is to choose a song, re-record it using only your voice (beatboxing, making guitar sounds, singing, and you cant use any instruments or anything else except your voice) but i will accept it in arthur ;) dont worry

Are you allowed to post more than 30 seconds or is it strictly around 30 seconds?

James

You can post more than 30 seconds.

NOTE TO ALL: REMEMBER ONLY TO USE YOUR VOICE, NO MUSIC, NO BACKING TRACK ONLY USING YOUR VOICE TO MAKE GUITAR/INSTRUMENT NOISES, VOCALS AND BEATBOXING!

Wow im mad right now.

I got so into making this, I forgot to save as I went along. Sure enough, the one time I forget to save my work, the computer crashes mid-edit.

Back to the drawing board.

Hi Arthur,
Do You call that rubbish ?
It sounds VERY nice to Me
It sounds as a Today version of Bing Crosby ...
Maybe you can earn some money at the end of this Year during the Holiday Season .. into local pubs, Nightclubs etc
All women gonna be hypnotised at once :)
I'm gonna make a deal with you .. if you make an own XMas song .. I promise to upload the track to my playlists .. and there are also lots of other stations at BW .. so they all can support your project :)
Who knows that somehow a new BW member into the future gonna be related to a record company ... Imagine your first full CD as World Premier at BW or maybe a new candidate to an upcoming Idols :)
Honestly .. I like it !

R-U-B-B-I-S-H!!!!!!!

I will be doing mine today.

Now. I warn you all in advance. I cannot sing to save my life. Nor can I play any instruments properly. So, as James sdaid ONLY using your voice, mine will be acapella/beat boxing. It will be terrible, but I am game for a laugh.

Arthur. You did us proud mate.:biggrinthumb:

Right then. I have been busy in the studio all afternoon on this and it is awful! I had to face a few facts today.

1. I cannot sing
2. I cannot play any instruments
3. I cannot beatbox either, which is a bit of a drawback.

I can however use my pc and it has some very nifty stuff in to pitch correct anyone, well nearly anyone.

I haven't borrowed anything or anyone, this is all me, some music ideas and a little computer program.

So, get your ear defenders at the ready. take a seat and get ready to have a good laugh at one silly old man making a public fool of himself. Yaaaah, i don't care, I am up for a laugh.

Are you ready? Can you handle it? Are you SURE?????? Apologies to Mr R S who originally recorded this - please don't sue me!

mmmmm. Yep. Right. Sure. A hidden talent as a nightclub emptier when it is closing time maybe. :boonie:

Thanks. But I know my limitations! There will be no x-factor for me, LOL.

BUT, I will do take 2 today which WILL be just my voice. I am just deciding on the song. I will have a gap in the studio later today, so I will take the plunge then.

YOU HAVE ALL BEEN WARNED!!!!!

James

That sounds good! It really does :D I wouldnt have known the difference :)

OK you 'orrible lot. You asked for it......

This is entirely me and one mic. No effects, no fancy stuff. No editing. Just me and a few takes nailed together. Everything you hear is my voice. You have been warned! It is low, but still way above my normal range. I have suffered for this!!!!!

Apologies James, I made it 30 seconds but it ended up at 50 seconds. It just means a little more suffering. This could easily be used to extract secrets from spies or just to pursuade prisoners to behave or they will hear this everyday.

Alright, its time for my entry.

I've had bad luck with Pro Tools and this one. The computer ran out of RAM last time, I hadn't saved. This time, one of the dreaded DAE Errors, causing an "Access Violation"?

Anyways, I was THIS close to losing the save, but I didn't!

I decided to do....

...brace yourself...

Britney Spears - Circus

I added an intro commentary, as I think im going to put this in rotation on RadioKick when we launch.

Enjoy,

OK, so you thought it couldn't get any worse ? Well, I'm here to prove it can ! Compared to the effort you are about to hear...Jinglemaster ? - A musical genius of the first order. Arthur ? - a country music virtuoso. We present the act that Clive Anderson walked out of the studio on.... the tribute act that the Bee Gees disowned before they had even heard this track. From the little known pre-quel to the 70s box office smash "Friday Night Flu" we bring you "The Pee Gees"......

Disclaimer:- I claim no responsibility for nausea, headaches or any other medical ailment that may result from listening to the attached. Use only as directed. Other tributes acts are available.

Coming next, my tribute to The Sugababes... (just kidding)

Jinglemaster
02-12-2009, 08:15 PM
I feel very sick indeed. But somehow very humbled to be in the presense of such a megastar in the making. Wasn't the idea to do it yourself, bot use the original beegees track surely. What???? That was YOU????? get outa here....

Fantastic mate. And I mean that from the bottom
