Quote from: Jupeboxgal on April 18, 2015, 10:58:49 PM1) Are the song time limits still 2:00 for the first round and 5:00 for the finals?
Quote from: KKD Contest RulesPreliminary/Qualifying Round1.5 minute OR verse/chorus
Quote from: Jupeboxgal on April 18, 2015, 10:58:49 PM2) Is it still okay to add a note or two and a few moments of silence to the beginning of a karaoke track where the singing starts before the instrumentals?
Quote from: Jupeboxgal on April 18, 2015, 10:58:49 PM3) Are we allowed to bring and or use props while on stage?
Quote from: KKD Contest RulesAny props carried on stage must be relevant to your costume or outfit and not impact or disrupt your performance in any way. Props that alter the lighting or staging of your performance are not allowed.You must clear all prop usage with staff before your performance.Cosplay prop usage may be considered as a minimal factor in your overall stage presence/performance but will not impact your score. Good Example: A staff that matches your costume which you incorporate into a light dance routine. Bad Example: A prop that spews confetti on the stage and audience, or adds a laser light beam/fog machine effect.

Quote from: Alexie828 on April 20, 2015, 02:19:11 AMWhere's the link to the list of songs that are already available in the karaoke library? :) And can we request new songs to be added like in previous years?
Quote from: Ska on April 20, 2015, 12:35:56 PMI'll be posting full contest rules after I get them double-checked for inconsistencies, but all these questions are super important, FAQ-level ones so I'm happy to answer them!Quote from: Jupeboxgal on April 18, 2015, 10:58:49 PM1) Are the song time limits still 2:00 for the first round and 5:00 for the finals?Our preliminary song limit actually changed a couple years ago. In the rules it's now stated as:Quote from: KKD Contest RulesPreliminary/Qualifying Round1 minute OR verse/chorus (individual category) 2.5 minutes or less OR 2verse/chorus (group category)The timing starts from when singing starts. These rules will allow you to perform a song that is edited for a TV opening or ending. For more unorthodox songs, a minute will give you plenty of time to show your stuff. These are soft limits and you are faded out gradually depending on where you are in your performance and other factors. You're always welcome to start your song at a certain point, or fade out after a limit you set for yourself though! Just talk to me about it at the tech desk and we'll make it work.

Quote from: princesskitty18 on April 20, 2015, 12:44:08 PMwhat? O.o since when did the preliminary time alloted changed? cuz last year it was still 2mins
Quote from: Hank-KKD on May 06, 2014, 10:13:05 PMSong SelectionSongs must be from the following categories: anime, vocaloid, video game, or J-rock/J-pop. K-pop is allowed in the preliminary round only. Although our karaoke database has songs from other categories, only songs from the aforementioned categories may be used. Signups with songs not in these categories will be rejected.Songs limits: 2:00 (preliminary), 5:00 (finals). Songs longer than these limits will be faded out when the limit is reached.
Quote from: Ska on April 22, 2015, 06:20:38 PMFeel free to crop the song exactly to where you want to start and finish.
Quote from: Enkai on April 25, 2015, 09:47:53 AMIn the portion about pitch shifting, what do you mean by "provided no other excluded alterations are made?"
Quote from: Nina Star 9 on April 25, 2015, 10:01:51 AMI have a couple of things I'd like to clarify about the new rules.First, when you say that it's 1 minute of singing OR a verse/chorus, which is the or contingent upon? It is based on whichever is longer, or whichever is shorter? For reference, this is the song I am considering: https://youtu.be/k8TPhQjZe1AThe singing starts about 15 seconds in, and the end of the first chorus is at about 1:53. Would I be able to sing to the end of the chorus, or would I be cut off before then?
Quote from: Nina Star 9 on April 25, 2015, 10:01:51 AMSecond, you said it is okay to start a song wherever, but is it okay to chop out a long instrumental in the middle? Or, at least, shorten that instrumental? Or I can just ask about my specific song, because there are multiple versions. Do you know if the version of Adieu (from Cowboy Bebop) in the database is the long version (6+ minutes) or the shorter version (5.5 mins)? (though, even the shorter version would need to be faded out around 5:18 to catch all the singing...) If I can chop out 18 seconds of the instrumental in the middle, that would be fantastic.
Quote from: Ska on April 25, 2015, 09:04:22 AMYes, one song choice must be from an anime. It is an anime convention, after all! It's your choice whether you want it to be your preliminary or finals song though.
Quote from: Ska on April 25, 2015, 11:59:12 AMMeaning section g - prohibited alterations, or any other alterations that are not specifically mentioned as being allowed. For example, "changing the pitch" by playing with the speed of a song is not allowed. I know, it may seem silly given the other rules we have in place, but there ya go.
Quote from: pantsu on April 26, 2015, 12:21:50 AMAs for open mic karaoke, can we bring mp3 players to use for that? I find it easier to just dump all my karaoke tracks into a playlist on my ipod rather than burning a CD and having to keep a written list of which song is which.
