  1. Hello Robert and Hello to all! I just ordered the TVS program and am excited to start working on my singing. Quick bio. 48 Y.O. male from southside Virginia. I have played lead guitar since 1988. After taking many years away from home recording, I got back into it about 18 months ago and had to learn the new DAWs etc from scratch. To make a long story short, I have about 50 "songs" on my hard drive that need vox. I also have quite a few lyrics written without any music etc. It has been difficult (impossible) for me to find any singers to work with so the next logical step is to just develop my own singing voice more. Hopefully it is not too late. Besides which, I love to sing even if I am not very technically aware at this moment. As far as singing, I want to sing rock, classic rock, 80-90s rock, grunge, bluesy styles etc. In my songs I generally find myself in sort of the style of VH, Rainbow, Whitesnake, LedZep....sort of melodic and bluesy stuff. (at least thats the aim, hehe) My fave singers in no order. Ann Wilson, David Coverdale, Goran Edman, John Sykes, Glenn Hughes, Mark Slaughter, Marq Torien, Barry Gibb, Layne Staley and many others. I am not fixated on copying anyone though, I just want to develop my own innate abilities. My dream song might be "Love Kills" by Mark Slaughter when he was with Vinnie Vincent, but again, its not a fixation. (Im aware Mark had a pretty high voice lol) My current estimation of my singing abilities? I have potential to have a nice voice etc but am pretty clueless technically and totally untrained lol. Just from browsing vids etc I think I have a good understanding of some of the terminology....chest voice, head voice, falsetto, bridging etc. I understand the concept of vowel modification but have never tried to practice it myself. I am probably like a lot of other untrained people. If the song happens to "fit" my current capabilities, then I sound decent. But if it doesn't, I sound like a frog that spent the previous day hollering at a sports event. Sometimes I can sing along with the verse to a song but when it goes into the higher chorus part I cant hit that.....or I can hit it but I have to jump up to head voice with no bridging going on lol. I think my head voice is developed to some degree but there is a no mans land between my chest voice and head voice. If I work on a song I tend to get into a lot of pushing/straining/choking lol. No bridging currently happening. On occasion I also like to throw in some BeeGees falsetto. Anyway, I am excited to get to work and am looking forward to some nice progress. I am throwing in this link to a "before" song where I sang and played guitar over an existing rhythm track. This was in Jan 2014. Pretty sure all the vox are doubled. (manually sang twice) Im pretty good at doubling...since I have never thought my voice was good enough to stand on its own yet lol. Any feedback on the singing is welcome. Id be interested as to what my natural range is. I understand it isnt going to be that impressive as it is an untrained voice but maybe we can get an idea of what we are working with and what potential for range and style I might have etc Thanks a lot for any feedback! https://clyp.it/egudjvlp Peace, JonJon
  2. Hello! My name is Rodrigo, I'm from Argentina and I am a begginer in this singing world. I will practice with The Four Pillars of Singing, by Robert Lunte, every day, por about 45min to 60min. I will love to practice a little bit more, but I'm a college student, and I also play guitar and I have to give that instrument another 60 or 75 minutes a day. Music is my passion, and I want to perform for the people in my city and people in another cities near mine. So, not a big deal... I am sick of listening bad singers in live gigs here, so I will put up an effort to be better. To improve, to have a good technique, and sing for many years. In my living room, and in small bars. All those goals seems a little impossible for my right now, when I start thinking. But I decided that I have to go one step at a time, slow, but consistent progress, with more small goals, that gide me to my ultimate desire. I want to think of this as the "Before" part of every "Before&After", so when I come back here in a few months, I will post an update so I can see if I improve in some way. I like this song, and the singer of The Calling was a huge inspiration for me when I was a kid and I wanted to sing. Now, thanks to Rob and his program, I have an idea of what do I have to practice in order to sing it! So, I think I have to expand my range so I can move with more freedom. So the sirens will do that work. Always remembering that I don't have to push, and I have to bridge early (since I'm a begginer). You can here (and love) the darker overtones amplified, so I guess the D&R onset is KEY! Robert says he loves it, and it gives you the impression of a much "worked" technique. And for this song, it is CRITICAL. You can't sing this in tune but without the darker overtones, it would just sound too flat! And I saw a lot of covers in Youtube of guys doing that. I know better, I know what to work on. I didn't use any special thing to record. My dinamic cheap mic plugged in my notebook directly, and I used the render of the REAPER, but without any effect. It sounds decent, just for you to hear the imperfections (and, belive me, there is a lot!).. Well, here it is. If you listen to it, please don't hate me LOL

  5. INTRODUCING THE TC HELICON HARMONY SINGER I would argue that the TC-Helicons pedal style vocal effects are some of the best ideas to come out of their facility in Vancouver, BC. They are small form factor, intuitive to control and easy to get a great sound out of. No menu's to navigate, just simple rotary knobs, buttons and a master on/off footswitch. They are in my opinion a joy to use. The TC Helicon Harmony Singer is no different. Rotary controls for harmony type, wetness and reverb line the top along with a Tone button borrowed from the Mic Mechanic and a master switch flesh out the top. On the sides are the typical mic control switch along with instrument in and through as well as a thoughtful ground lift. On the back you'll usually find mic in/through as well as power and USB ports for firmware updates. What makes the magic happen, though, is the instrument in port. TC Helicon calls the Harmony Singer "Guitar Controlled". I imagine you could plug any kind of instrument generating tone and a line level signal but if you opt to use the TC Helicon Harmony Singer without anything you'd be selling yourself short. Why? Because the real beauty behind this TCH box is that it uses instrument pitch to perfectly dictate the harmonies produced. Aptly put your harmonies will always be in the correct key. Always. And that is what makes the Harmony Singer awesome. Don't miss the chance! Use the 50% Discount Code for "Review my singing" Forum: TMVWorld50 THE TC HELICON HARMONY SINGER: IN PRACTICE In practice, it took me little time to dial in something that sounded pretty convincing. The Harmony Singer gives you a pretty reasonable selection of harmonies from a 6th below all the way to a 5th above as well as mixes of the two so provided you don't have a lead vocal that's completely bonkers chances are you'll be able to find something that will fit. The key here to maintain realism is to use harmonies sparingly and to find the right place for them to sit in the mix in relation to the lead vocals using the Level knob. It would also help if you do have some basic understanding of chord structure to determine the optimal sounding harmony for the particular application. THE TC HELICON HARMONY SINGER: WRAP UP All in after spending a few weeks with the TC Helicon Harmony singer I can honestly say this is the first harmony effects box I've used that is both easy to use and produces realistic harmonies. It's not the real thing and I wouldn't use it in place of human produced harmonies in the studio but in a live situation its one more useful tool to add to your vocal toolbox.
