How to Chipmunk Songs

 Chipmunking songs is where you modify your song to make it sound like it was sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks 

Step 1: You Will Need...

-LAME mp3 encoder (A Google search will get this for you)
-A Song

Step 2: Step 1: Preparing

 First, you will need to fire up audacity.
Second, you need to import your song.

Step 3: Step 2: Preparing the Chipmunk

 First, select all of the song by hitting Command + A (PC: Ctrl A) Or by going to Edit> Select> All
Next, go to Effect> Change Pitch...

Step 4: Step 3: Chipmunking!

 So now that you are all ready, and have the Change Pitch window open,  change your pitch from C up to A#/Bb and click OK.

Step 5: Step 4: Waiting...

 Wait for Audacity to finish Chipmunking your song. This may take a while...

Step 6: Step 5: Check And... More Waiting!!!
