You are highly recommended to listen to the original Nightcore songs if you haven't yet.
If you find the songs you are going to use do not sound like the above songs. It is absolutely fine as long as you don't label them nightcore, use Artist - Song Name (Sped Up), (Speed Mix) or (Speed Edit) instead. If you are desperately want to label them nightcore, please do add the actual genre after Nightcore - Song Name [Genre].
It is good to see people can listen to what they enjoy. Just a little more classifications can help everyone get what they want more easily. Thank you very very much.

UNUSED MATERIAL NO NEED TO SEE
I think understanding what you mean, but I'm not sure... I try to give you an answer telling you how I edit tracks... I first simply speed up the original track (and the key changes automatically, for this song the key is Em at 170 BPM) and then I change the pitch, it depends on the original voice singing and my taste and "experience". That's for female vocals songs. For male ones is different and it's a bit more complex and difficult. When I speed up, they changes the key into "female" one and it often sounds very horrible, so I have to change the key and not the pitch, coming back to the most similar key of the original song. The speed of the song sounds a bit slower (and I adjust it speeding the track of 1BPM or decimals) and the song sounds also a bit "muffled" (I adjust it balancing tremble/mid/bass) but the difference between the coming back to the original key and the BPM has to be very high to notice these "lack of audio quality". Key editing is different from pitch editing, key editing is strict (there are different keys) while you can pitch a song how many times you want till you reach the maximum level of the sound distortion. Changing the key, the pitch indirectly changes too, you can hear the vocals more female, and vice versa, but, pitch and key are not the same things, but on this point of view, we can say that the result is the same.
Vocal trance or euro house?
House but what house?
Between vocal trance and euro house
it’s because wavepad lowers the volume of everything but the bass
