IT'S FINALLY DONE: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fTbM3RB4I5l5qa0lJlyMC8M3rS6y6nLa/view?usp=sharing
Well, there's probably still some small tweaks, but I'm getting consistenly around 8500 on Medium, and I won't get much higher than that due to my voice. There are some things I also consistently sing 'wrong' so either those pitches are incorrect, but I think it's more that my voice just doesn't like them.

Renard, you'll want to at least double check:
- pitch of "pens" and the second (=last) "friends" in each chorus
- there is one word in CAPSLOCK somewhere, in the first verse I believe: STUBBORN. The official lyrics have "calling" there instead, but it sounds like a 's' is in there as well, so I always hear 'stubborn' or 'stalling'. I think the timing and pitch is fine regardless of what is chosen, but I'm just not sure what to put on screen there
- timings/pitches around the golden "faaaaaaaaaast" (you'll know it when you see it)

I've (tried to) follow your advice about 1/2-length notes and space between syllables and words and linebreaks, but there are places where the song was just too fast etc.

Video's currently 1080p, but bitrate isn't that high.
Background is https://derpibooru.org/2175269 (obviously, feel free to change if you find something better)

PS: beware that if you're going to use Yass (ie, mp3) that GAP is probably different than the current ogg!



I started this like, ages ago, typed out my own lyrics, because back then the Bandcamp page didn't have any lyrics. Thankfully the Youtube version had lyrics in the description, so it gives at least some baseline. I didn't need to change much, just little things here and there.

125 sentences (and many of them not particularly short either). I need to do an easier song next.

Just finished the timings of the notes.
Going to do the pitches in the next days - if I by then figure out how to pre-sing them.
Else I'd also be happy to collaborate again (@barbeque xP)

Here are my current files: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1BjW1uveHV-bi1OjYerd663gmQzqhPIvg?usp=sharing

The lyrics are written in the video description for what I know ^^ (https://youtu.be/9-rGy5n_uaE)
He also put them into the bandcamp: (https://4everfreebrony.bandcamp.com/track/little-librarian-don-mclean-ponified).

If there are some lines missing in them I'd be more than glad to help out with the lyrics. No trouble at all  ;D

Ps: How is the progress going? Really looking forward to singing this song :3

Nevermind my own words.
Wanted to at least take a look at the timings and now went through the whole song again. They should be fine now :D

Going to add a properly cropped cover image and update it all to the gdrive link (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1B4fsJiYbpgVaXm2e2fW9FJwsjuGehEcQ?usp=sharing)

Sweet! Thanks a lot for your help! <3

I'm going to doublecheck the timings as soon as I have a microphone again (Probably tomorrow afternoon). You're totally right about the freestlye sentences - it sorta felt right to add them while editing but in the end it's really just distracting.

Going to update the assets now too :D

With pitches: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lWKtqCyp-hoTnAIK_MKzdhkfXisdtrFG/view?usp=sharing
There's a few pitches that I'm still a bit onsure of, but the majority of them should be good.

NB: I did not touch any timings, except when I split a note in two because (I think) it was spread across two pitches. Did some test singing on Hard, not the greatest scores (around 5k, should be higher on a slower song like this*). Part of that is due to me having to "octave switch" at certain places, but the notes are also quite close together and in some places the timing feels a little bit off (enough to be noticable but close enough that it might be on my end, hence me not touching any timings yet).

Also, the "freestyle sentences" with the parentheses around them (towards the end of the song) were really distracting during my test singing. They go by very quickly, and there's a sentence directly after them. I left them in for now (linebreaks and some long sentences will probably need to be tweaked anyway) but I think I would just remove the freestyle sentences completely.

And no, I didn't mean that the Bandcamp version (or which video, or even what background/cover) has anything to do with developing the song, because it doesn't**. I meant it more as a "if this is to be released at some point, those assets will probably have to be updated, might as well do it now". But I usually first collect as many assets as I can before I even start, mostly because otherwise I will probably forget :D for now this is fine.

* this is still miles better than the average (non-pony) txt found on the internet
** there appears to be a GAP difference between mp3 and any other format. But especially if you're using Yass, you're kinda stuck with mp3.

I don't understand why the release version from bandcamp would make a difference for developing the song; neither do I understand why I would want to use a webm version of the videos.
Anyway thanks for you help ^^
If you want to work together on the song, I am currently unable to do the pitches until - likely - tuesday next week. I'd really appreciate it if you want to do them :D

Nice! This one has been on my personal todo list for a long time.

And maybe you were going to do this anyway, but:
- I can provide directly-from-bandcamp ogg for a release version (or any other format if that's easier to develop with) if it's needed. (going by the metadata of the mp3, I assume the current source is youtube? (which is totally fine to make the txt with))
- Background can be 1920x1080
- I'm not really a fan of these kind of videos, but have some youtube-dl'd ones (no audio) in 1080p or 720p: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UKmz5z_zAjhcaTtSxZP0fEpwJ-M6M8Re/view?usp=sharing

I worked on the Song Pegasissy from the last ponies at dawn album.

Files: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/16IuEXlTCI5XdrDOTAytHzX2WS7QVD8sz?usp=sharing

The Timing of the song should be fine but some of the pitching in the faster parts of the song need some tweaking.
I would be really happy if someone could help me out with that.
