Okay, cool, so DM and/or Cydriex can be in charge of the artwork.

What about compiling the voices? Anyone have Audacity? And about doing all the technical stuff?

Okay, we also need people to volunteer to do instruments.

We need to decide what song to do.

And DM, don't worry, if you don't want to sing then you can always do something else. Also, we might reveal it all after the secret Santas.

Also, keep in mind, if you don't want to sing, or play an instrument, you can always play a simple tambourine or a tringle, maybe bells?

I could do the mixing as well as some instrumentation (and maybe singing). I play several instruments (which I can't list here in case I use them in my Secret Santa  :vikonsmile:), and I also have some experience doing mixing on Audacity). But it might be a little tricky to get this whole thing done before Christmas. Then again, "Do They Know It's Christmas" was recorded on November 24 1984 and released on Christmas (then again, they were all in the same studio).

I thought we were gonna sing Do they Know it's Christmas? Just like what I mentioned in the Christmas collab thread (where this conversation started in the first place)

Yeah, we can, I set up a poll so that people can vote. Do They Know It's Christmas would be the best option, but if there's a better one we could do, it's not a bad idea either.

It only matters that you have equipment, this thing doesn't need to sound top notch, it will end up just being a bit f fun anyway.

I remember us talking about adding a Freebird Games melody to the mix. That would be pretty cool.

I can play guitar but I'm warning you, I'm terribly untalented lol :(
Videogame developers are not gods that anyone should worship. I hereby decide that is my top existential reason to prove that horrible, horrible misconception, because that is becoming annoyingly rampant in every corner of the internet.  They can deserve critism, or thrashing even. It doesn't even need to be constructive critism. And even if you are a free game developer doesn't mean community is your personal ego farm.

It could always be used as a gift but it's more of a "whole community" thing.

I completely agree! I think that would be a really nice thing to do.

Guys, come on! We need to do this! Just a reminder. I say we should start compiling voices and instruments. If no one else volunteers to compile voices/instruments, I will do it. Now everyone, remember that your recording doesn't need to be perfect, just so long as it's you.  :)

And don't forget, you can change your votes with the poll, I added the links to the songs in the first post, you might want to check all of them, just in case you find one you like better. I will shut down the voting soon, I'd say in a few days.

Well I can go with any of them. Just give me a heads-up and tell me which part of the lyrics that I'm going to sing :'3

Personally I prefer the original (1984) version of "Do They Know It's Christmas?". However, since we're all not going to be in a studio at the same time, I feel like it would be kinda hard to make it work.

Do they know it's Christmas would probably be best but maybe (a non-heavy metal version of) Jingle Bells might be easier.

Either way, I can't sing!
