Yes, this brings up something I was trying to say. People say that all songs labelled as nightcore would cause confusion. Well that's where adjectives come in. Phrases like "rap music" and "techno music" help people who want a certain kind of music get what they want. Similarly, this should help people who want a certain kind of nightcore.

I like how you acknowledge the people that really want to use the nightcore name for their uploads, regardless of genre.
I add this line because there are two kinds of sped up"sound uploader on YouTube. One would be uploading Artist - Song Name (Sped Up), (Speed Mix) or (Speed Edit) after reading this thread. The other one is diehard sped up sound uploader that believe any sped up sound can be called nightcore no matter what. This line is for the later one, this line is kind of make sense for them so hopefully they would add [genre] so when I search for nihgtcore on YouTube, I would get one less song to check.

Also it would be even clearer if we just stick with nightcore = sped up dance/trance than any sped up sound.
Your reply is like suggesting to give up different genre and style and use Music - Song name [Techno] and Music - Song name [Rock] instead.
I only think up Nightcore - song name [genre], this rather concessionary naming format just for the diehard sped up sound fans. Even this is kind of anti-intellectual, it is the only rather sensible way to filter their songs when the the first suggestion failed (Artist - Song Name (Sped Up), (Speed Mix) or (Speed Edit)).

So the name format Nightcore - Song (Genre) is essentially a last resort sort of thing?

No, the last resort would be letting everyone realize and understand the difference between nightcore and other sped up sound. I still insist not all sped up sound can be called nightcore. Again, it is just a tag for me, because they will name their sped up sound nightcore anyway, adding a tag just let me check one less video.

I think that last sentence just is another way of saying people will name their speed edits nightcore anyway regardless of what they are told. Nothing more, nothing less.

Though correct me if I'm wrong. I tried to base this on what I read in the OP and the replies, but sometimes the English of NU members can be hard to understand (no offense to anyone here).

holy shit I wonder why I didnt find this post earlier it could have prevented mistakes and I see I still do some but I have to figure out what or how to make it better. Well now Im kinda confused since I didnt know that EDM can go into so much detail o.o Im using wavepad idk if its the same like audacity. Is there a tutorial about nightcoring songs with wavepad I mean a bit detailed for example what you have to think of when saving the song. I always change the pitch and speed equally I never use 2 different values. Then after I am done I click on save then variable bit rate (VBR) minimum bitrate 32 (kbps), max bitrate 320, Quality 0 (highest), Channel Encodering Mode Joint. To be honest idk what joint does. Is it better when I change the minimum bitrate to 8 which is the lowest or is it ok to use 32 kbps?

And also I feel very confused with the genres still dont know if the genres are ok or not which I upload. (I mean the latest songs not my first 3 or 4) But my feelings say it can be nightcored otherwise it would sound awful to me. Since I know how to find good nightcore songs I dont think I upload shitty ones like my first nightcores again xd. About quality I think amazon has good quality songs so I dont have to worry about right?

For video editing I use windows movie maker but I have to double check the settings since I used the standart settings which worked fine imo. I also have sony vegas pro but idk how to use this shit xD

Still thanks hko2006 for your detailed tutorial it rly helped me alot!

Thanks for reading, it is good to know my work does help.
Since audacity has set rate and wavepad doesn't, I rarely use it. When saving, use CBR 320 for mp3 and 350 VBR for m4a for the best quality. And for the Channel Encodering Mode Joint, read http://www.richardfarrar.com/what-is-joint-stereo/
Updated part 1 and 2, added Bubblegum Dance and Eurobeat in minor nightcore and spectrograms of iTunes' M4A, Amazon's 320 MP3 and Beatport's 320 MP3.

(c) WavePad
WavePad is pretty straight forward.
1st Buy WavePad because it isn't free unless you want to use the 1 week trial.
Next load up your song
Then go to "Sound Effects" to Change "Speed and Pitch" then increase the pitch to how ever it sounds good TO YOU don't let anyone judge how it sounds.
Finnaly click File>Save As> Choose your settings> Then Save!
YOU'RE DONE!
sorry quotes from me are illegal in other people's signatures sry
Jumpcore thats what the bass is for.

Should use WAV for the best quality. And M4A for high quality storage, the solo reason you should use MP3 is that your device can't play M4A.

Had the idea of making a new tutorial since I read the old one. Sry I can't recall how much time it took making it, I edit the post from time to time whenever I have some new findings/found errors to fix, spending few hours here and few more there. I would say 7 days if counted in using full 24 hours a day.

Well details are the points of the tutorial consider the difference of saving the track as 128 MP3 and 320 MP3 and people are not familiar with audio format, audio quality, etc.

would say you can make the genres clearer and tell that Euro Trance,Euro Dance,Italo Dance and Hands Up is nightcore able. And some sort of newer style of Euro Dance and other sub genres too.

I would add this one:

Why Euro Trance is almost the only genre that you can nightcore:

Euro Trance is a hybrid of Dream trance, Progressive trance, Hard trance and Eurodance music incorporating hardstyle bass drums and trance elements. It is closely related to uplifting trance. The trance synths at times can sound like techno hoovers with trancey effects and strings backing it up. The vocals are often pitched up for the most part, but sometimes they can be heard as in normal pitch range. This is often confused as vocal trance because of its use of vocals. The lyrical content is usually primitive, containing an introduction to the song with usually no or little drums, and often includes renderings of classic Happy hardcore anthems or melodies. Also some of the middle '90s Happy Hardcore producers started to produce tracks in this style.

and then say the original nightcore group only nightcored euro trance. There are only a few songs from other trance sub genres like hard trance and uplifting trance that you can nightcore because they have much euro trance elements but actually euro trance is what fits the most.
