    • yeah, thats to measure and display the harmonics blah blah. Im talking about an actual device to PRODUCE the sound...to manually put a sound wave into the mouth, which you then manually shape/tune. Like you shoot a c5 into your mouth and then you shape and tune it for max loudness or whatever. Evidently Berton Coffin had a small organ hooked up somehow It strikes me as similar to how a guitar talkbox works. You hook a special speaker/driver up to your guitar amp that has a plastic tube coming up into your mouth. You then shape your mouth to make different vowels etc...which are then picked up with a microphone and next thing you know you are famous. (if u r Peter Frampton)     But evidently the device could be good for experimenting with different tuning skills etc without adding hours of extra wear on the cords themselves since there wont actually be air passing thru them. The device is producing the sound  
    • Corrected. Sorry, in a hurry. It's a spectrograph.
    • ok, you arent referring to a spectrograph (like voce vista) are you? all i get when googling for spectrometer is a device to measure light
    • You can do similar with a spectrogram
    • Was doing some reading today and ran across a blog by a student of Berton Coffin (original blog post) https://lloydwhanson.com/formants-made-easy/placement-versus-formant-tuning-using-vowel-mirror/ Evidently Berton had a sort of home made device he used to more or less blow a tone into the students mouth and then the student practiced shaping the vocal tract until the tone resonated the loudest etc Sounds really cool and I can see some nice applications for it. is there anything like that commercially available or is there any other easy way to get something like that going?? On the blog post, Lloyd Hansen said he had a tuner hooked up to a small 2 or 3 inch speaker and he just held the speaker up to his mouth etc.   I think he called it a "vowel mirror" but he also might have called it an Echophone.   any ideas?? Thanks, JJ  
    • yep, sob/cry is a cornerstone method, no doubt
    •   I filmed this in one-take in Seattle with @Robert Lunte at The Vocalist Studio. I brought this song to Robert because I tended to push WAY too hard and wear out my vocal cords by the end of it, in 2.5 minutes! As a performer and teacher, that was unacceptable! We worked on sobbing/crying through the song, which made it FAR easier to sing. This convinced me that Sob Vocal Mode works like magic. Crying through the song not only released extra tension, but also made it much more emotional to sing. I usually train a song through a cocktail straw for a week to get the same result. Purposefully adding sob meant I didn't have to do that. Speaking of magic... Do you see that mic and filter? Aston's Halo Reflection Filter works better than anything I've used in my decades as a recording engineer, beating out sE Electronic's flagship product by a very large margin. The room is not treated at all and sounds like a reverb chamber, and yet the raw vocal track was perfectly dry. Aston's mic, Origin, is also the first solid state mic I've ever truly loved, which says a lot if you know me. Apparently, it's built like a tank too, without exaggerating at all. And no, I didn't get paid to say any of that.
    • Normal.   Voice type or "vocal fach" is only important for classical, choir, or musical theater, when they simply want to be able to hand you a part meant for a vocal range and sound color that seems natural to you. By that count, I could cover a multitude of voice types. Vocal range is more important, and having the coordination to somewhat change your sound colors at will.  You can train to use your TA (chest voice) musculature as high as you can sing in head voice or falsetto. I'm not advocating "pulling chest", but rather learning how to use the TA muscles for a chesty sound color, allowing you to have everything from a very light mix to a full on belt sound up to that Bb5. For me, B5 is when I switch to whistle register, which hads nothing to do with the TA musculature anymore.
