Captains! 

 

We're sure by now, you have seen the latest Captain Bad Advice video about F key spamming. If not, here is your refresher. 

 

Since that came out, the amazing Trevzor and I hatched a plan to run a contest where you, the fun and creative bunch, create a song using the Captain Bad Advice tune in the middle of the video. We ran a poll and it was mostly in favor of participating and spectating the contest.

 

You are free to do anything with that particular song you want. You can add your own sounds and touches to your song. You could even make it sound totally different. The choice is yours. There are a few requirements though. Please read below for the rules. 

 

Chobittsu has done some awesome work to get you some excellent audio cuts for vocals. Thank you Chobittsu. 

Follow this link for the cuts: http://sta.sh/21dkc6hj61g5?edit=1

 

Contest Duration: 

Starts: Friday April 21st 2017

Ends: Friday May 5th 2017

 

Requirements: 

  • Your song must be no shorter than 1 minute 30 seconds and no longer than 2 minutes. You can make a longer version if you wish but you will not be judged on that version. 
  • Your song must also be in a high quality bitrate no lower than 128k. Your file format should be .ogg, mp3, mp4, or flac. You are also able to upload it as a youtube video. 
  • DO NOT USE ANY MUSIC THAT IS SUBJECT TO COPYRIGHT OR TRADEMARK. 
  • Song must be family friendly. No profanity, suggestive lyrics, or anything inappropriate otherwise. 
  • Your song must be by your own creation.
  • By submitting your entry, you are giving your consent for your creation to be used as an intro for Warships Live. 
  • A total of 10 HIGH QUALITY entries must be submitted in order to be considered for the Warships Live intro. If we don't get that many solid entries, top prizes will still be credited but a song will not be chosen. 
  • If you are serving a game or forum ban, you may not participate in this contest. 
  • Post your entry here in the forums. If you are linking to a music or drop box, please make a note along side your entry so we know where we are going.

Well, this will be interesting...

Could someone post some software (freeware?) that they recommend for editing sound files?


 

Maybe Audacity? http://www.audacityteam.org/

I might try to arrange the song on piano(with Musescore2). I have some VSTs(it's like pack of instrument sound) to export and make the terrible midi piano sound little bit better but piano will still sound really artificial.

I assume WoWS Sound Devs definitely have better VSTs that they can apply on midi file. So is it possible that I submit my song in midi file?

Okay, well, here's a video version cause I'd need to know how exactly to upload the MP3 but is this kinda what your looking for Niko?

 

 

Just cause the way it mentions using the tune and all in the middle with the rest of it seems kinda confusing. As well as if you meant his little bit or the actual intro or what. 

 

Would have preferred working on my own beat and throw the F commands in there but not sure if that's what the rules would want via that description and no idea how to get just that audio.

 

edit: also, sorry if anyone's ears bleed cause it probably isn't good :hiding:

First time trying something like this. Attempted a more classical rearrangement while trying to keep the general bass and overall lines as in the original. I highly doubt this will fit anyone's taste though.

That's good, but wasn't the idea to use the actual song?

Thanks. Niko said "you could even make it sound totally different" so I took that as being able to make a rearrangement. I could be wrong.

Sounds great either way, a really cool twist on it.

Quick question: Is the original song subject to copyright?
