Mmmm... nah. Needs to be a tad deeper.
wow I really like her voice! Fits Derpy surprisingly well :3
Ten seconds in and I'm already sure that the Hub needs to hire a new voice actor for Derpy.
Gold, pure gold.
Not bad, but my vote for best Derpy voice is still this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTYaM3_wJpg
I like how when she was talking about muffins, she suddenly gains an extra 100 IQ! XD
Hub! Hire! NOW!!!
Should be higher pitched
I am praying that Derpy is gonna be awesome in Season 2! But this is awesome.
@BlankFlankBronyMy heart!!! its fallen out after i HNNNNNNNNNG-ed for 5 mins!
Finally, a voice to read Derpy's fanfic lines in. This is wonderful.The chemical analysis of muffins leads me to believe that this voice would also be perfect for Bunny Cormick.
Cute, I agree maybe a little itty bit more mature sounding though. She sounds like she's still a little filly..
cute but not enough derp, still pretty cute
I'll buy this as Dinky's VO. I kinda want Ditzy/Derpy to sound more, well, adult.
Personally, I think this would perfectly fit Dinky, but not Derpy. This voice is too childish and high for our mailmare.Anyway, if I'll ever be in need to get a voiceover for Dinky, I'll know who to ask.
Waaay too squeaky.
It must be... deeper...BWAAAAAAAAAM!
Omg, I love the muffin rant. XDDThis is perfect. X3
If Hub doesn't hire this chick to voice Derpy/Ditzy in season 2, they are out of their gosh darn minds!
Hmmm. It's high and sweet enough to be cute, but is still low enough for me to accept as an adult pony. (Her pitch makes her sound somewhere around Pinkie, actually)It's more ditzy than derpy, but I'm cool with that. Mostly because o oh my goodness it is cute as a button.(Also I want this VA to do a livereading of Bubbles now.)
I... actually cringed a few times. Weird, since I generally love cute voices, and even Cream the Rabbit's voice doesn't really make me cringe. But yeah, for the most part, the voice is cute and fitting. Might need a bit more balancing to really work though. But good enough that I could see it working for voice-plays or VA for fanfic performances or something. Nice.
Do you know the muffin mare, the muffin mare, the muffin mare.Do you know the muffin mare who lives on sugar cane lane?
It needs to be a little bit DERPER. :D
Sounds a little young/immature for Derpy. I could totally see her a Dinky though.
"I got my cutie mark from doing this! Ebbrrreberbebrebrebrebrbeberbe!"Okay, I'm sold.
@AnonymousThis.Nice effort, though.
Adoooorable, don't make it any "derpier", it's great how it is.
Hub...if your reading this...give this woman a motherclopping job! :D
@AnonymousSeconding this.The linked wasn't bad but I didn't really like it... largely irrelevant as I doubt Derpy will be speaking in season 2.
I think the vocie would go well with Dinky.I just hope that they don't make her retarded.
Ehhh... Not enough derp, a bit too high......Umm, I don't mean to be offensive but... are you a dude using some sort of voice alteration? There's just this tinny quality to the voice that makes it sound like it was altered...
This isn't the same lady who did 'Muffinproof', is it?
Quite a nice voice actually, hopefully they have someone sounding like this if they give the character any more speaking roles. When she says "ooh muffins!" at 20 seconds in, she actually sounds very close to the real "muffins" line by Derpy from the show.
Fitting, but it DOES need to be a titch deeper. For Filly Ditzy, or for Dinky, this would work.But for normal Ditzy... needs to be a little deeper.
nope.aviOn youtube, derpyderp910 does a better derpy, let alone he already has 3 music videos up.
Excellent voice acting in general, but I honestly did imagine Derpy having a voice that was a little bit deeper and a little less squeaky than this. You had the bubbly nature I pictured down pat, though.
Good job. Feels a little forced, but definitely good for just a random person reading lines.
Too childish IMO
A few moments of cringe, but mostly very good.
Sounds too much like Pinkie Pie
im on the fence on this it sounds good but alittle too childish at the same time it maybe perfect for dinky but maybe id like it better if she wasn't trying to be so adorable
However, if that line where she says, "I'm here to deliver mail and eat muffins...and I'm all out of muffins" doesn't make it into Season 2 somewhere, I will cry like a little girl who dropped her ice cream cone.
A little deeper and more mature sounding and I think this voice would work perfectly! Also the quality of the mic used could be a little better, but that's just a technical thing.
She sounds like a Nasally Version of Carrot Top mixed with Pinkie Pie. Though this fits Dinky better.
The diction and pacing is right, but the odd line comes off in the same tone Twilight used on Spike about him being "a widdle baby dwagon" that really needs to not be there. Bring it down half an octave, though, and it works beautifully.
I've seen her other Derpy VA vids, and I personally think she does much better there. She does good here too, don't get me wrong, but I just think she needs to lower her voice just a tad. Make it seem less childish.
I'm gonna have to agree and say it does need to be deeper
Yes, I'm the one who sang Muffin Proof!As for the 'more derp', I personally feel Derpy is more of a dumb blond, not a mentally challenged idiot. And she's capable of being smart and even normal when she tries. I really don't enjoy making her completely stupid/braindead like some people want her to be. She's shown many times in Ponyville she functions just fine >:[I don't know why she sounds too young to people though, since Pinkiepie's voice is an even higher pitch than what I used. I might try a more mature Derpy later on though, just to see how people react. I was basing the voice off her "Muuuuffiinnnsss" line that was spoken in season 1.
I like it. Seriously, I don't get all these people saying "It needs to be more mature." It's perfect?
She sounded nasally at the time because she had a cold.Derpy with a cold.Keep sending her lines, they're fun for her to do. <3-CircuitfryShe's also helping me with something coming July 3rd, keep your eyes peeled!
Then again, I had a cold when I recorded these lines. Maybe that's why they came out a little more 'child like' than my other videos?
Only one word can describe this: Diabetes.
@AnonymousThis premise scares me.
I personally imagine that Derpy is actually intelligent, erudite and well-spoken, she just has a horrible sense of direction...
@BaldDumboRatI'm with you here. I've never been one to classify Derpy as completely "challenged".I've always seen her as a completely normal pony, she's just a little scatterbrained and happens to have a pair of crazy eyes. And I like your voice in this video as well as I like it from the previous vids. Keep up the good work! ;)
my. god. it sounds like Derpy by way of Robotech's Linn Minmei....
Some lines were absolutely great, but others missed their mark. I think the lines that were longer tended to be a lot better than the shorter ones. When she did the short ones, she sounded like she was trying way to hard to be cute, and it just killed it. However, when she tried a little less on the cuteness scale, it sounded perfect. The muffin rant for example, was funny, and sounded exactly like her character, however the "I brought you a muffin." line was just way to sappy and "Cute".
It's cute for a filly derpy. "I GOT MY CUTIE MARK FOR DOING THIS: AJKBLJVVVBBBBBBBBDOAMFSKEJAKL"
@AnonymousHmmm, that ones pretty good too. I could actually go with either of these equally, they both fit what I see in the character.
That was great. I laughed so hard at the "I got my cutie mark for doing this!" Line.However, she says she's going to make sure the mail gets to the 'people' it needs to. MISTAKE! IT SHOULD BE PONIES! (Yes I had to point that out. I'm weird like that.)
FUCKIN INTENSSEEEEEEESHIT JUST GOT REAL
Not bad, but too high-pitched and squeaky. Great for Dinky, not so much for Derpy.
I lost it when she explained her cutie mark.
That strangely made me smile =)
Excellent! Needs better sound/recording quality, and no music. Someone should animate to this ...
Needs more Fluttershy, less Pinkie Pie.Right now, it sounds like something out of rugrats, imo.
"I got my cutie mark from doing this, BPBPBPBPBPBPBPBPBPBPBPBPBPBA!":)
I love it! Derpy reading her GGG invitation was absolute BRILLIANCE!Seriously, send this in to the Hub. They NEED to hear this!
i would think derpy is more like James May, well rounded but can get lost on her way to work and other place she visits often
I don't know how to respond to this
I think it should be a little deeper, but over all not a bad Derpy interpretation.
Lost it at "I got my cutie mark from..." part. And scientist Derpy explaining the consistency of baked goods is amazing.
Sound great actually! All it could use id probably a better mic and a little bit of direction! (sound director.)
Must hold back... It's too much!*Floor Spaz*
I love it.
Yes! Hire this person!
So cute voice ^3^
THIS IS DERPY'S VOICE!!!!
Should have had SUSANO'O playing during my Haku quote request lol.
doesn't seem quite right for derpy, but still awesome!
... This person is actually a friend of mine.
not a fan. you could never give derp a constant voice
@reboundShe is. I know her personally.
@BaldDumboRatIt's less about pitch, more about timber (timbre? Never quite sure on the spelling. Cruddy English switch ups) and breath that makes age.Note the difference between filly Pinkie, and "mature" Pinkie. Pitch is about the same, timbre (I'm going with that now to separate it from wood) is different, and there's a little more breathiness in the younger version. And more derp doesn't necessarily mean mentally challenged or idiot, or a combination of those two. It just means, moments of omgwtfbbq. The occasional mangled sentence. The odd word choice now and again. I mean, I know smart people who have derp moments all the freaking time. Most of my friends think I'm in a constant state of derp. They don't think I'm an idiot, though.I like to think of derp as eccentricity. So, I'm going to agree with the others. More derp. ...so, huzzah and whatnot. I liked it. But like all things, it could use improvement.
I agree. Derpy needs to sound more mature and a bit more derpy. Not "stupid," but. . . . Fudge, it's kinda hard to describe.
That was wonderful.
While I don't support Derpy being legitimately retarded, I cannot deny that this voice is perfect.
I had a big comment and then blogger made it disappear.Now I mad.
I love this voice, but it reminds me of THIS:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN50ENE_HUUOn the other hand, Derpy sharing a voice with the most adorable artillery ever conceived would be beyond awesome.
Too childish.Remove the "child accent" and make it oh-so-slightly deeper pitched and it would work fine. Keep in mind Derpy is at least as old as the mane 6....I think (talking canon not fanfic)
Yes and/or no .... I smell a tiny influence of anime voice ... possibly my imagination but it still puts me off ...
DIAAAAAABETESSSSSSS~~~It needs to be a tad bit deeper and it is right in the derp 9_6
Voice is cute!!!!! But I don't think it's adult enough for her it would suit Dinky though I guess...
I always imagined it as being sort of a female Forrest Gump. But this one shall have to do.
Is this the same chick which sang in that music video?Then again she can always have a normal voice, like the one which said Muffins
Ok, this was excellent *before* the Hakumen reference. After that, it was doubly so.
There're some awesome music videos by derpyderp, I prefer his voice, just sounds right.But this is still pretty awesome.But I don't think we have to worry about Derpys voice in the official show (if she ever speaks again), all the characters have great voices after all.
Wow. I am actually pretty impressed. I'd definitely be cool with this voice actor. As for gluten, Derpy would totally have that level of expertise on muffin making. Also, "muffins" as an expletive [2:57] is now going in my IRL repertoire. A++!!!!!Miss Faust, please listen to this one guy you don't know and hire this young lady. Please. For me. I'll bake you muffins. And...I dunno, mow your lawn? Do you need your lawn mowed? I mean...I'd prolly mow your lawn just for a chance to talk to you. Or wash your car.The point is Derpy Hooves. This person. Hup! Hup!Also I love you.
I'm kind of torn. On one hoof, this is the cutest sounding thing ever since the season ended, and I really like this. On the other, I kind of imagine Derpy sound a bit more, well, adult. It's hard to describe. BUT this is definitely the closest one to what I've imagined, from the few I've heard.Oh well.Muffins.
Ugh... my brain filled with sugar and exploded from sweetnesss!
really good! but she doesn't need to be that stupid...btw"I got my cutie mark for doing blargbalrglalargblablablarg... XD
Not perfect, but probably better than I could do. That's the curse of having great ears but a horrible voice.
The voice is fine, but I find the personality a tad belittling. Though it isn't the general non-canonical consensus of the fanbase, I think Derpy could and should have more moments of relatively normal behavior.
I think, pitch it down just a tad and you're right there.The characterization is great, though. I like non-retard Derpy. She's spacey, not insane."There's a muffin in my mailbag. So... where'd the /mail/ go...?"
Just found this song performed by this voicehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG0ZMiJRo10
Awesome. she's perfect.
First few lines were a little disappointing, the rest was spot on. I doubt that Derpy will have a speaking role in season 2 and I'm fairly certain there isn't enough time to throw one in before it airs but if she gets to speak in season 3 then you definitely deserve the part. I agree that Derpy should be clumsy and airheaded, but not go full retard. Today, Tomorrow and Forever is a great fanfic, but a Derpy that can't even form complete sentences is just too sad and/or creepy for FiM.Making her freakishly knowledgeable about the chemistry behind the baking process of muffins was a great touch.
I wonder if anyone is going to try for Vinyl Scratch. I have been recently imagining her with a pseudo-French accent.
HMmm...I want to say the pitch is just a tad too high, but Over all it was very cute. :)On the other hoof though, I am kind of hoping that they never introduce Derpy as a foreground character in the show. I love how much the character has grown within Bronie Circles based on such a small amount of information, and that's what makes Derpy Derpy. If the creators bring her into the spot light then she will need a voice and a more appropriate name (Lets face it, "Derpy Hooves" is not going to be Canon. :P). It'll most likely be Ditzy Doo, and to me that will ruin the mystique surrounding the Wall-Eyed Pegasus.
She best at 2:20 in the clip. I prefer her voice to be more mature, not retarded, and not too nasal. She should be a bit distracted, she should not be insane nor should she be an idiot. Derpy Hooves is the Best Mommy, and this should be reflected in her voice.
This is... so ADORABLE!!! She needs to be the new voice actress. /)^3^(\
Kill it with fire.
^Preserve it with water!
i did not like it.not a bit. :( i was hoping more day of the tentacle Laverne´s voice style.or like the deep voice that says "muffins".
"I wonder what it says....come on Mr. Letter, say something!" is the line that sold me. I don't like Derpy being TOO Derp. A little silly, a little 'oops', a little 'Derpy, it's just an expression', more words, in the end I agree this is a good Derpy line set. It could be just a tad deeper, but a filly voice seems to fit her a bit better personality wise.
I agree with some people, it needs to be a little deeper. But I like how it isn't too derpy. I like a silly derpy.
"You've got muffin!" made me fall out of my chair. XDI say it's pretty decent.
I say this is perfect. The "Muffiiiins!" line matched up wonderfully with the famous line. She is darn cute.
Too psuedo-anime for me. Better than some of the ones I've heard, but mehhh.
ITT: Nitpickers nitpicking.I've concluded that if the people of EqD were a pony, they'd be Hoity Toity. It's cute and awesome! Enjoy it for what it is and stop thinking everything is so darn important! inb4 INTERNETS IS SRS BSNS!!!!
FUND THIS RIGHT NOW
I HEARD DUKE NUKEM SOMEWHERE IN THERE.
"Um...Applejack didn't make these, did she?"
Because I only came to the brony party in April and via some mainstream attention (i.e. I don't read 4chan), I never understood the appeal of Derpy Hooves. But this video kinda has me convinced that she needs an episode. "Dear Princess Celestia: Some ponies are a little slow and have reduced mental faculties and are just overall a bit 'different.' It's not their fault, that's just how nature rolls sometimes. That doesn't mean that they're worthless or shouldn't be treated with the same respect that is accorded to 'normal' ponies. Your faithful student, yadayada."
I'm the best mailmare EVAH!
This is definitely a voice that could work, although she sounds a little too similar to pinkie pie, mostly because of how bubbly the voice is.
It sounds better for Dinky, Derpy's voice needs to be deeper.
I dawwed higher than I ever have. *GAAAAASP*daaw.
So cute! I love it!
Quite intriguing how most people all talk for Dinky. I think I'm one of the very very few people who routinely see's Derpy on the same sort of age and standing as the rest of the mane cast.To me, this sounds spot on to make a very unique and animated voice for her.
@Sphere of Suggestionseconded would be perfect for her foal though
that is the cutest voice i've ever heard.
Sounds a bit like Twist at times no? I think just the slightest bit deeper would be perfect.
Ummm...I don't know. Sounds right at some points, but then wrong on others...
that was very cute. we need a voice like hers for derpy.
omg that video made me lol hard.I hope the real derpy hooves has lines like that.
Holy offsprings this is awesome
Sounds like an actual voice from the show.
Pretty good, sounds a bit too much of a kid though
Well, this is uber cute... but mature up the voice especially if she is the Dam of Ditzy. Good job of VA though.
To the people who think it should be deeper, there are adults in our own species, especially women, who still speak with the same voice they did as a child. When you're female, that "deeper voice" thing can go out the window. Plus a peppy cute voice is what she needs if she's going to be silly, goofy, and spaced out. Every dumb blonde stereotype on t.v. that I've seen has a high peppy voice. It's not anime to do. There are people out there who actually sound like this.I think I can even imagine the Pinkie Pie actress attempting this. Instead of a new voice actor to pay, they may just have that actress do the lines.(personally, I want Catie Wayne to voice act Derpy in her Boxxy voice but I don't think that will happen)
I don't like it. It's for the same reason I don't like Pinkie Pie's voice: it gives me a headache.
when will she be hired to be derpy's voice actor in the show?
sooo the last one it sounds like she threw teh mic across the room but otherwise i like
Actually...I retract my previous comment. After letting the voice sink in a bit, I could see her sounding like this in the show. :D
Nah, this voice is way too high and sounds like Pinky Pie. It's very annoying actually.
Lol, great way to get a Cutie Mark. 0:46
they should have her voice derpy's child :P but not derpy cuz the voice is too high
It could do with being a little deeper. The chief problem with fan characters is that they never sound like each fan thinks they should sound like
She was aiming for "bubbly" and "ditzy"... AWESOME!!
That's surprisingly good!...I could get behind it. Perhaps it's a tad *too* girly.
*Tears of joy*Adorable, so ADORABLE. IT'S UNREAL, AND YET, IT'S HERE. I love you.
I recommend to you all to visit BaldDumboRat's actual Youtube page. She has several more Ditzy Doo attempts up there, without the cold hampering her sinuses. You'll probably all find those clips to your liking, as the pitch IS noticeably lower.That said, great stuff! Am looking forward to more from her. ^^
This should be the voice actor for Dinky. Derpy's voice needs to be a tad deeper.
omg the end was awesome it was soooo cute
And here's where it all began.....
i like it
Common Complaints:- Too girly- Not deep enough*Derpy gets speaking role*Common Complaints- Derpy Y U SPEAK?!- I preferred BDROh you fickle fandom.
Hm, I think the canon voice is more fulfilling of the character.
