EDIT: I made Equestria Daily! Huzzah! :D
EDIT 2: To those who are confused, no. I am not Daniel Ingram. This wasn't made by him. I just always acknowledge the composer in my video titles. Sorry if you found it misleading!

Hoo boy. Where to even start with this one. This is the most ambitious recording project I've attempted to date, with a twenty part choir and six lead vocalists. It took six hours to record, a further six hours to mix, then seven hours to record and stitch together the video (yeah, this one's lip-synched - I'm not *completely* insane). All up that's 19 hours of work, not including render time for the video. I've put a lot of work into it and I'm very proud of how it's turned out!

I actually recorded the audio for this back in late February when I was home over the holidays, but I didn't get time to mix it until the past week or so. I'm glad I'm finally able to put it up!
(As I'm writing this the export from Premiere just finished and I noticed a few of the choral tracks are way out of sync. Clearly SOMETHING doesn't want me to upload this, but I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED! *spends another hour fixing it then cues up a second three-hour render*)

I said it in the note at the end, but seriously big thanks go to Haeph for his help with the choir tracks. He's a way better producer than I am and his feedback on the mix off him at different stages really helped the final product.

Also, I just want to point this out, there is no pitch correction in this. Those high A-flats in the soprano line near the end? All me. (As is the occasional flat note, but that's entirely beside the point! :P) This, coupled with the fact that I'm singing My Little Pony songs should give you a strong indication of how incredibly manly I am. Oh yes. XD

And for people like me who obsess about working stuff like this out, the choir in the video is arranged:
