Multi-Track Pokémon Theme Sung Acapella

June 29, 2010


This is a video of an elvish looking guy with really pretty lips singing every part of the Pokémon theme acapella and multi-tracking them all. I've been dancing to it in my out of my underwear all morning. It's like he's singing straight to my soul!

With a total of 58 different audio tracks (lots doubled or tripled) and LOTS of editing, I finished it :). There is also 16 different video tracks that come in and out.


-The drum shots were transcribed and recorded shot for shot

A lot of different effects have been used on this recording. Pitch correction, yes pitch correction, was used on lots of the backup tracks - although none on the lead vocals. While I didn't necessarily care to "correct wrong pitches", I used to create a continuity and consistency of sound because I was imitating instruments. The guitar sounds have distortion and tape delays and everything has significant EQ's as well... The drums are a prime example. Also some use of pitch shifting.. no I can't sing that low lol.

But I CAN sing that low is the thing. So if you wanted to get together for a duet sometime we could probably do that. Unless you're serious in which case I'm busy. Like, forever.

Hit it for the video.

Thanks to Michael, who still remembers the acapalla group from the gameshow version of Where In The World is Carmen San Diego? Rockapella? They were the shit.
