I Acapella’d with myself!

In my second blog post, I talked about what projects I would like to do from the Ds106 assignment bank. One project I really wanted to do was the A Capella with yourself project. This project requires you to record yourself singing your favorite song in at least three different tracks. Over the weekend, I randomly started singing one of my favorite songs by the one only Michael Jackson called “Butterflies”. Then, I started thinking about harmonies and how nice it sounds in acapella because it is such a beautiful song. Therefore, I decided to use this song for the project. The program that I used to do the cover is Mixcraft 5, which is where I produce all of my work. I recorded vocals, snaps and hi hats. It took about a few days to complete. I might have done more than I was required to do because the cover is a minute long and the project was only supposed to be 15-20 seconds long. I just really enjoy doing projects of this sort and I just could not limit myself. I think the hardest part of this project was getting the right tempo and trying to keep the snapping sounds on beat with the vocals. Overall, I think it came out pretty good and I hope you all agree and enjoy. Note: I am not much of a singer, That is something I am trying to improve on

  1. Holy Christmas that was good! You should definitely submit your work directly to the assignment so other people in ds106 might find it. And I’ve never heard of/used Mixcraft5. Have you ever thought about making a screencast tutorial? You could use this project as an example and teach others how you do what you do so awesomely!
