MadCast Karaoke: On Broadway!

Sunday, August 10th at 7pm EST

 

Rules

1. Either turn on push to talk or mute your mic while people are singing.

2. Use continuous transmission while singing. (Settings->Options->Capture)

3. Do not record anyone singing (other than yourself).

4. Have fun!

 

Theme

The theme this month is Broadway and musical songs so brush up your Do-Re-Mi and All That Jazz because this is The Music of the Night! I Dreamed A Dream that Any Dream Will Do so Don't Rain on My Parade! This is only a suggestion and doesn't have strict limitations.

 

Transmitting Music and Vocals

If you want to transmit your Karaoke instrumentals and your voice over Teamspeak, you can! The following is a simple guide for doing so using Realtek Stereo Mix, a pre-installed recording device on many computers (any computer with a Realtek soundcard).

 

1. Go to your volume control, the speaker in the bottom right on the taskbar, and right-click. Open Recording Devices. Once there, right-click inside the dialog box and make sure Disabled and Disconnected Devices are checked so they are visible. If you do not see Stereo Mix, you'll be unable to procede and will have to find a different, more professional manner of transmission.

 

2. Go to your standard TS microphone, right-click on properties, and go to the Listen tab. You'll see a 'listen to this device' checkbox and drop-down. Choose your primary speakers (probably ones not on your ears) and check it. When you speak into the microphone, you should hear yourself over those speakers. This means your microphone and any sound you play on your computer will transmit over the speakers- which are 'recorded/listened to/transmitted' by Stereo Mix automatically.

 

3. Create a Teamspeak Profile with the 'Stereo Mix' as your capture device using continuous transmission. You can change from normal to this Karaoke profile in the Self->Capture settings.

 

4. Modify the Levels in Stereo Mix, Microphone, and your Speakers. The purpose is to get a good sound without feedback. If your Speakers are too close to and/or facing your headset, this may prove difficult or impossible.

 

5. Enjoy Singing with Accompaniment!

Oh my god I better be able to make this one! Yay musicals!

Though I do wish there was a way to do decent duets over teamspeak. That would be so much fun. (Maybe someone wants to test it out with me? I have so many good ideas for songs with more than one part :/)

I love Les Miserables

 

If I'm not required to sing I'll make it lol. I'm pretty bad at singing :P

 

Nobody is required to sing. Alcohol for those of age is more than welcome for liquid courage. Some of us don't sing, some of us do, and some of us at least make some sorta noise that is mistaken as singing! (Like me. Lol.)
