Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

He'll take a backing vocal track, copy it to another track, tune all the pitches, flatten all the pitch warble to zero, and then work out what each harmony note should be on the guitar. Then we'll tune that note on the copied track to what it should be, and then listen to it against the original ba...

SpinTunes 15 sign-ups and schedule

SpinTunes is a semi-annual elimination competition. It differs from Nur Ein in that it gives topics instead of titles, and it is only four rounds instead of eight. Also the schedule is slightly less arduous than Nur Ein - you get a little over a week to finish each song, followed by a five- or six-...

Re: Word Frequency Count in Song Fight titles

The idea came from some curiosity about whether or not "Robot" appeared in SF titles more often than "Love". It doesn't. Love = 8, and Robot = 4 (5 after the Yes, You're A Robot fight). Other interesting items: "You" (34) appears a little more often than "I" (33). That seems to contradict the alread...

Word Frequency Count in Song Fight titles

We touch on this topic during the Tearing History Down episode of the Two Jerks One Vote Song Fight review podcast so I wanted to post it here. The word frequency count for all Song Fight titles (not including Tearing History Down and Yes You're A Robot) is listed below. I did not include the words ...

I'm glad that you explained that stuff about the text files.

Re: Might As Well Pile On (My Last Nerve Reviews)

I dipped in to the podcast, good stuff. And yes, the bug is still there that the votes are keyed only on the band name. When folks enter multiple songs with the same band name then unfortunately votes for any one of their songs all go to the artist, not the song. If you'd like that changed, please ...

Re: The Great Big Songfighter Birthday Thread

I've voted, downloaded, lurked on the boards, and submitted cover art on and off since 2001, but Jerkatorium has only been submitting songs for 3 1/2 years. It's very likely that Jerkatorium wouldn't exist at all if it weren't for Song Fight, or if we did exist without Song Fight our output would be...

Thanks a ton Micah, I love your interpretation of 49%; a rousing zydeco version with great vocal harmonies. I've been listening to it over and over.


I would have praised it earlier, but I was too embarrassed to chime in until we got our song done.

Re: Who would you want to see come back?

I've learned to dislike this type of question because for every band I mention there are a hundred other bands who could feel slighted because I didn't mention them (out of forgetfulness or whatever). Of course any band that hasn't participated in a Song Fight for most of a decade is not likely to r...

I could also join the Roymond chorus, but you might not want me to: I do almost all of the backing vocals for Jerkatorium, but more often than not when I do a vocal track that I thought I'd nailed, I end up listening back in bewildered horror to find that I was way, way off pitch.
