  1. Hello all, I used to use a crappy USB Art M-one condenser mic but after doing much research have upgraded to a Scarlett 2i2 combined with an MXL V67G. Problem I recorded myself and to be honest, while the recording is clean and clear (at least compared to my crappy USB condenser mic), it sounds so different from when I sing in person. This recording lacks power, and it just has this really dampened feeling, and sounds so boring compared to myself singing in person (friends who I show this to agree also). I'm wondering if this can be fixed just through software like EQ-ing and compressing, reverb etc, or do I need a better mic? If I do, I would preferably like to spend below $100. Recording Info The recording I have below is just noise reduction and normalize, no compression, reverb, equalizer nothing. I have tried some basic compression & reverb on another recording and while it improves the output (have not uploaded this MP3 yet), still doesn't sound the same as in person. Am I just a newb at EQ-ing? Or is this a microphone limitation? Recording below EDIT: If this is the wrong forum, mods please move to correct one
  2. I thought I would do something special for Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I have sang this style in years, so doing it in one take was definitely a challenge. I had fun going back to my Gospel roots, especially playing with sob vocal mode and distortion in that Gospel placement.

  7. The Carbonphone by Placid Audio is a very unique microphone for anyone who is interested in experimenting with sound. Its military grade carbon granule element captures sound and creates a "lofi" sound that is naturally distorted. Creating sounds similar to scratchy vinyl or an old military radio, this microphone is perfect for anyone looking to recreate a more vintage tone or anyone looking to create something new altogether. Included with the microphone is the Tone Box which provides the current which is needed to power the microphone.

Each selection on the control knob offers a different frequency response, allowing the Carbonphone to be used on a broad range instruments and for various applications. Because the sound of Carbonphone has a character unlike many other traditional mics, it makes a great addition to any recording enthusiast’s arsenal of microphones. It can be used as an all out obvious ‘effect’ on it’s own or it can be paired with other traditional microphones for infinite blending possibilities.

  10. New Cover

    I was chosing another song to work on and I stumbled upon this one. It has "high" notes (for my standard) and low notes. Definitely difficult for me. Insights appreciated. Cheers!
  11. Phoenix Ren - Begin By Letting Go

    Hi all Not been on here for a good couple of years but decided to bite the bullet again with singing and learning how to home record using Logic Pro X following training for several months and finding my own voice and not trying to copy others. My artist name is Phoenix Ren and she's only just come out to play this last summer! I'm pleased so far and know I have to more to give in terms of the voice. I also need some lessons to learn with editing the vocal to avoid 'essing' and 'popping' still being too close to the mic, but I'm keen for feedback on the overall track, balancing etc. I used 2 mixes together for the vocal - one wet with some reverb, and one dry with only compression. I use an SE220a mic and Focusrite Solo preamp/interface...and a load of mattresses!
  12. Hi everyone! I recently just got diagnosed with Vocal Chord Edema, I've had alot of trouble hitting C4 and above in chest/mixed voice and had lost my head voice and falsetto for a solid 5 months after a cold. After being on medication for a while i've been able to explore the 4th octave more regularly with ease and wasn't sure if I am using healthy technique or placing my voice correctly. I am being assessed on this song in 3 weeks and I'm hoping to move my last assessment grade from a B+ to an A! I've only been learning this song for 3 days so some parts are not correct but I am doing my best as my throat gets swollen easily from the edema so I try to practice as much as possible without abusing my voice <3 (Love You I Do - Jennifer Hudson)
  13. I have been learning to sing for two weeks so far. I need a little help figuring out how to make my voice sound better. The song I am singing is panic at the disco Time to Dance.
  14. Youtube Copyright... fair use

    Anyone knowledgeable on uploading videos with audio from an artists song? Like legal stuff and the route of dealing with youtube? My John Legend video just had a copyright claim on it by Som Livre, Varios...I think it's some company in Brazil. I don't even think they are tied to John Legend. It said I could post it but not make money off of it. I'm not trying to. But, I figured I would "dispute" it for two reasons. One, fair use laws in Canada are pretty good, from what I know of. And two, I don't think they even own the copyright.
  15. Judas Priest - Desert Plains

  16. Vision of Love Cover : Mariah Carey Love Yourself Cover : Justin Bieber I really need help trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong vocally or is it just my tone? I need honesty. Thank u!
  17. Baritone practice High C

    HelloI am a baritone who have begun training on that high c. It is a difficult note to reach. But i dont know if it sounds good? I try not to strain and open my mouth more wide. PS i had a bit of a cold when i recorded this
  18. For the past few months i have started seriously practicing to improve my singing voice. this is a difficult thing to do since my singing voice is probably one of the worst you have ever heard. I tried so many different techniques on my voice but all my attempts resulted in tragedy.....until today I understand That I still have a very long way to go before my voice becomes somewhat decent, but I think I made break through today, I think I may be on the right path but I would love to get some honest feedback for my singing. I feel that if I continue to practice and train my voice the wrong way, that i might actually develop bad singing habits, honestly I think I already have done this and it is horrible. I would love to hear if you guys think I should keep practicing or just give up. So the craziest thing happened today, I was just chilling doing nothing when a random yawn hit me, believe or not but this yawn is what helped me improve my voice 10 fold. as i let out the yawn I heard and felt my voice make a beautiful sound, I then applied the same technique of yawning into my way of singing, its hard to explain but its like I simply opened up the back of my throat and sing from the inside of my chest/stomach area. I know my voice is not good, but I do think I made some decent progress, keep in mind that i literally just learned this new way of singing a few hours ago so i intend to practice using this technique unless you guys think I should continue searching for a better way of singing. I uploaded 2 recordings, one is labeled "before" and the other is labeled "after" the "before" recording is from last night and the "after" is from this morning.
  19. I use a digital recorder that records the effects in real time while recording. With this recorder I cannot add effects after the track is laid down other than a master effect which is applied to all tracks. I usually check for decent sounding preset for my microphone before recording and use headphones. My questions are.....How much does this effect the initial sound being produced by you the singer. And can it interfere with overall voice production? An example would be....Does too much Bass in the EQ lead to a higher larynx to compensate for the sound and vice versa, too much treble lead to other compensations. ect...
  20. Hi, I posted this a few days ago, but for technical reasons the post was lost. Robert Lunte already kindly reviewed it, but if anyone else feels like giving me (constructive) feedback on singing, songwriting or recording, that would be great. It's a prog rock piece just over 8 minutes long, hopefully you'll stick through to the end (which was the hardest part to sing due to the challenging harmonies). George
  21. What is my Vocal Fach

    Help me decide what my vocal fach is! I'm untrained and a 14 yo girl, so please ignore if my technique is nonexistent (which it is), and just help me get an estimated vocal fach, which I've been trying to determine for the past 8 months out of curiosity. My range is a rough G3-F6, sometimes more or sometimes less. People have told me that I'm a mezzo-soprano with whistle notes, but I really have no idea.
