Nightcore has Changed

Postby AznXstyle » March 15th, 2015, 8:48 am

It's saddens me to see how the "Nightcore" community has took such a downfall. Yes the "Genre" is getting increasingly popular, but over what? Songs that have only been sped up and have no actual Nightcore feel to it; Happy, Hardcore, Jumpstyle, Trance, etc. Fans don't even know the original group and praise channels that have decided to "Nightcore" a song first. Channels that deserve praise who actually upload real Nightcore are pushed aside and replaced with speed edits of songs that are popular on the radio. I only recently got back into the Nightcore community due to school and recently decided to upload again. There was always Nightcore channels all over YouTube that served two purposes: Uploading because they want to share and expand real Nightcore; and those who thrive for subscribers to only post trash speed edits. It pains me to know that channels grow increasingly popular due to Twitch streamers and bad word of mouth. This isn't going to stop me from uploading what I love though. It's maybe my own Jealousy knowing that the most popular Nightcore channel doesn't even know how Nighcore started and not know the original group.
Here are the screenshots of the conversation that made me want to write this.

Overall, I hope you understand. Thank You for Reading.

There's nothing we can do other than attempt to educate those about the origins of the name. Ultimately, channels that upload popular mainstream songs every day or two are going to have a much stronger following than channels that use the correct genres but only post every week.

They've also incorporated dubstep into nightcore (it's called nightstep). It is a travesty- it shouldn't even exist!

It's not incorporated since it actually has a different name, which is great, there's zero risk of confusion.

Yeah that's true. What do you guys think of people who add their own melodies to a song, speed it up, and call it nightcore?

Then it's not Nightcore, just a remix. Never seen that even once though :)

You'll be surprised mate. It isn't pure nightcore! Like you said, it's just a remix. Isolate the vocals of a song, put it in FL Studio and add your own effects. I've just started nightcoring music myself, and getting the correct pitch and speed is WAY harder than a lot of people think. I have worked with sound editing before, and it is something of an art.

There's even a Tutorial on YT which calls the original method of nightcoring a song "cheating".

People keep saying that tons of people are doing it, but as I said, I've never seen it even once. On the other hand it's very common that people THINK a song has been sped up + remixed, when in fact it's just an existing remix that has been sped up.

And on a scale from easy to hard, changing the pitch of a track has to be one of the easiest things you can do in any sound editor, considering how quickly you can iterate ^^

If we had a definition of "nightcore" in the dictionary, it would probably say something like "the act of speeding up a completely premade techno song".

Thus, oftentimes, when you make your own remix of a song, or when you make your own original techno song from scratch that has all the characteristics of a nightcore song, people say it's not nightcore because you haven't actually sped anything up.
