david seville didnt do the voices dumbass. this is from their new studio album, he`s long dead. James Ross does the voices on all of the new chipmunx stuff.

this totally makes me think of the patton oswalt joke about how he played the LP slow, and all of a sudden the voice of dave was like a demon or something.

flippant, they/he did not sing that slowly. All they did was fiddle with the track so that when it was speed up it souned like everone was singing normaly.

LOL. Simple but brilliant.
Fabricant, it`s sped up by exactly 100% (i.e. double speed; maybe that`s what you meant.)

LOLOL. Right before they start singing for the second time the slow voice person sounds absolutely hilariously evil.

Skittle5 - according to Wikipedia the voices are sped up.
"The voices of the group were all performed by Bagdasarian, who sped up the playback to create the higher pitched squeaky voices. "

Look it up if you don`t believe me.

PS. You`re dumb.

I used to have that record. I would play it on my record player at half speed, and hear the normal voices.

Quite interesting.

This is totally how they did it. You can tell if you listen to the way they sing - did you notice how they over-enunciate all their consonants, make all their n`s really long and their t`s really distinct? That`s because when they speed it up you wouldn`t be able to hear all the consonants well otherwise since they go by so fast. I always wondered how they sounded - this is cool as hell!

You can achieve the exact same effect with sound recorder in windows. The real skill comes into making it sound like your singing at normal speed when your voice is sped up. Seems simple, but it takes alot of talent to recreate a Chipmunks song without distortion.

Pretty cool, always wondered if they were simply sped up. Never heard the actual singers before.

I did a little experiment. I think they speed it up by about 50%.

Anyway, I remember something...what was that song called again? Oh ya, Lonely by Akon. Terrible...just...terrible...
Bah....Im not gonna rate it....wait....nah, I will. Im gonna 4 it because I dont feel like giving it a lower rating. Its been a while since Ive been generous....or something....

Hearing "Dave" speaking vvveeeeerrry ssslllooowwwllly was pretty funny. Rather annoying otherwise; this song bugs me enough when played at normal speed.

I wonder if this is how they recorded the voices for that Chipmunks post a few weeks back?

BigBonny: Not at all! What`s the point in knowing their real voices if you don`t have a norm with which to compare it? Without the original, it just sounds like some guys singing.

uh... that`s dumb, it`s not that hard to actually sing like the chipmunks, it`s called voice acting. thinking that the chipmunks are just people`s voices sped up is dumb.

Bonny, she was referring to Theadore`s singer; he does sound warped, but that is called timbre control. He is doing it on purpose WHILE recording the song to compensate for something in the quality of his voice that would make him sound too tinny or out of key in the finished double-time production.

That Barber-Shop style of singing is a lost gem of our culture. That must have been TORTUROUS to rehearse to; half the speed, and all the instruments decreased by an octave (if possible by their range)! Also, I`m confident this rendition was not at all exaggerated in it`s playback compensation (speed); it was precisely reduced to the natural pitch of the vocals, you can tell by their timbre.
