    Music Background vocals

    If it wasn't for that down right horrible British beginning, it would've been a 10/10!

    "I pile on the SWEEEEEEEEETZ.."
    No you do not, Ziggy! You pile on the candy, caaan-dee... You're not gonna try and pass on "sweets" for being at two-syllable word, it just simply is.
    Speaking of Ziggy, why is it that they simply had to give him the single most annoying British voice!? I mean, come on, just listen to it! I can just sense the "Hullo Sportacus. Marvelous day, innit?", and that is just way too British, even to me.

    Anyway, the Back-up boosts are actually really good man. They give the songs a whole new impression. Makes you think how much the choirs actually have been affecting the songs. It also shines a new light on instruments, which you may not have otherwise thought about. Like that high pitched synth at 0:56. Often used in songs to just, very simply, fill out as much in the sound picture as possible. The backing in the second verse, Pixels verse, is also very cute. "Bake-a-bake". Almost reminds me of Pac-man's "Wacka-wacka".
    New that we're discussing it, how much is actually known about the back up singers? I was under the impression that the lead-singers, themselves, sang their own back up vocals, or at least that the dubbers did, but of course it would make sense for LTE to have a dedicated cast of singers. Reason I'm asking, is because it really sound like there's a man singing at 1:20. Might just be me though.

    Last thing I wanna ask, is how do you make these? I can't believe how clearly the back up singers shine through. Do you use a filter or something?

    I was looking through some English-language CDs for some additional information, but was unable to find anything. Here's what I do know: Selma Bjornsdottir has done some backing vocal work, Margaret Eir has as well, pretty sure Sarah Burgess did many (and is probably in Cooking by the Book), Jodi Eichelberger did many (and is probably the male you hear in CBTB), Mani does some often, and I know that a woman named Maria did several for seasons 3 and 4.

    Last thing I wanna ask, is how do you make these?
    I agree; I'd like to know more as well.

    Re: Music Background vocals

    I tried to extract the background vocals of Always A Way. It has multilayer vocals and in the regular way I wasn't able to hear the 2nd layer bg vocals. I could not delete all the lead vocals and the music is still there, although it sounds different.
    I really like the vocals starting at 1:42. It sounds like Julianna tries to hit the high notes (which you can't hear in the original version), she sings even higher than her original lead vocals.

    Isn't that just the korean version of winamp. I gave up on those software years ago. It seems like they still can't handle .wav files

    btw the bgvocals extraction of Always A Way in my post was done with the FL-Studio plugin Voicetrap. I forgot to say that.

    A very simple trick in Audacity, I can expand if people are interested?

    Unfortunately, the way it was done makes the background vocals mono. I get the same thing when I invert one channel and mix it down to mono: the vocals diappear and the background vocals stay (the oldest trick in the music-book). When you mix it with the instrumental it doesn't sounds right. I was hoping it was done in another way.

    edit:
    I forgot that I already said that some time ago though

    I then import the instrumental and sync it up with the other track... and ta-daa, you have a nice instrumental with backing vocals. This works with any song you have both a vocal and instrumental version of, not just LazyTown songs!

    Re: Music Background vocals

    While some of us experienced audio manipulators already know, this is mainly aimed at those new around here to the audio field. None of these techniques will ever completely remove the main vocals and not without any degradation of the entire audio track. That's just a simple law of everyday two channel wave physics since other sound sources share the human vocal range frequencies whether fully or just overlapping. Even in Catbooks Galaxy song audio you can still vaguely hear the main vocals. Think of it as trying to unbake a cake. Not that I'm dissing anything it's just the facts of life with limited channels. Which reminds me nice work Catbooks on the audio clips. Heck, even in 5.1 audio the center channel is polluted somewhats with other audio sources. Example......

    Darth Vader "Impressive" from Empire Strikes Back center channel extract
    https://mega.nz/#!ZEUkxI7D!aOes2rnnO...dPh9kEXIdgZp4k

    Darth Vader "The circle is now complete" from New Hope center channel extract
    https://mega.nz/#!QV1XnYoQ!JDkXrYrOv...M_uueYuJWysWL4

    I used these in my latest ytmnd site and it's a way better result than trying to isolate Vader's vocals from a 2 channel source even though in 5.1 Vader's voice is still slightly spread
    out onto the other channels to give his voice more character and depth as with the other audio sources that are sharing the center channel. Lazytown's 5.1 audio for the
    episodes is even more polluted and less isolated from other audio sources which is a shame. Unless we have the actual individual pre-mixed tracks, it's the best we are going to do for
    our audio manipulations. It's like the audio version of green screen for the visuals wish list.

    Also Pooky, I've noticed that as well. There's something off with the Instrumental tracks and the actual tracks. Could be various explanations such as pitch difference or timing difference.

    Re: Music Background vocals

    I was playing with the Center Channel Extractor settings in Adobe Audition and found out that in the Bing Bang Christmas Version the background vocals are used which can be heard very well in the Bing Bang Time To Dance Single Mix. I was surprised by that because I didn't know it came from the LazyTown Studios, I thought it was made as an extra for the remix in some UK studio.
