Karaoke Box (It's back! Check Bob's latest post!)

Postby asnaylor » Fri May 07, 2010 3:03 am

Hi folks,

I wanted to let all of you know about a project I've been quietly working on since the last convention--the Animazement Karaoke Box (beta)!

So, what is it? Just a small room where folks can come in anytime during the con to relax, sing, and cheer on your friends. We'll have a system pre-loaded with a few hundred of the most popular songs from anime, J-pop, video games, etc., and the timed lyrics will be projected on a screen for you. (Japanese lyrics will be presented in phonetic Romaji--so you don't have to read Japanese to play!) Whenever possible, we will have *both* the instrumental/karaoke as well as the original (with vocals) version of a song for you to choose from.

How does it work? Show up, look over the song list, tell the attendant what you want to sing, and when your song comes up, you grab the mic and sing! There are no time limits on the songs, and no restrictions on repeats. As long as we have the song in our system, you can sing it.

So what songs do we have? Check out our song list here:

http://www.animazement.org/SMMSongList.html

We can't accept your music on-site for this, but if we don't have your favorite song, you can request it for next year. If you're absolutely desperate for something, you can ask me and I'll see about getting it into the lineup for this year--but no promises!

The Karaoke Box (beta) is not affiliated with the Karaoke Contest--that will go on as always, thanks to our buddy Kaji. (Thanks, Kaji!! ^_^) It's just meant to be a fun activity, where folks can sing anytime and appreciate all the good music that's from all the things we love.

I'm calling it the Karaoke Box (beta) since it's new to Animazement, we're using some free software to make it happen, and there might be some bugs and kinks to work out. So we want everyone to stop by, try it out, but please be understanding if some problems arise. If you want to see a demo video of the software we're using, check it out here:



Want to volunteer to help run this room? Visit our Volunteer page to learn about becoming a volunteer:

http://www.animazement.org/volunteer

Or, go visit our Volunteer Coordinator (and moderator extraordinaire) BobD, at Con Ops at the con. ^_^

Want to learn how to use this software and time your own songs? Learn about the Soramimi Karaoke project at their website:

http://www.soramimi.nl/

If you want to time songs and contribute them for use at Animazement, please PM me!

Any general questions, song requests, etc., you can reply here, since that might be helpful for others.

I've worked really hard to put this together, and I hope that the Karaoke Box (beta) will be lots of fun! :D

Yay!! I'm so glad you like the idea! >_< I was starting to think I'd done all this work for nothing..! ^_^'

If you want to reply with the songs you'd like to sing, I'll personally check them to make sure they're timed correctly and ready to go! Some songs on the list are in the system but aren't timed yet, and I've found that some songs I didn't time myself are a little off. :oops:

Most of them are good, though, and I'm doing my best to QC as many of them before the con as I can!

Thanks again for the support! :D

Acutally now that you ask about a song request..., I was wondering if you could add Banzai by Misa. The song is not from anime or game but its really upbeat and fun.

You got it!! ^_^ "Banzai" is one of my favorite Dancemania tunes, and I already have the music (the vocal track). I'll be happy to time it for you and add it to the system. If you have a karaoke/backing track for it, feel free to PM me!

No need to rent, Bob. When you get into town we can swing by the Formal Wear Outlet in Hillsborough and buy a used tux for the cost of renting one. That's where I got a white tux with tails years ago for, oh, $70. So, I'm sure they'll have something in a nice pastel velour waiting for you. Then it'll be all Fly Me To The Moon all the time.

You're welcome! I've timed "Banzai" for you and added it to the system. I was able to track down a karaoke version, so now you can have your choice of singing with Misa or not! ^_^

mine too! This is a great idea, I'm surprised it hasn't been done at Animazement before o.o;; I'm positive It'll be a big hit, especially among some of the con-goers that might be too shy to sing at the bigger karaoke session. I'll definitely pop in for some cool down time. Too bad the RCC doesn't let outside venders in, otherwise I bet they could make some money on coffee and cookies. :3
