  1. Yesterday
  2. There used to be a device in recording studios that they hired from the makers, called an Aphex Aural Exciter. This is the nearest thing to it that I've found, all in an inexpensive easy-to-use well-engineered box. Essentially, to my ears, it adds a subtle presencey crispness to the vocals that helps their clarity in the mix - live or home studio. The shape control seems to select the frequency-range of the voice to which the effect is added - it's a choice made from trial and error. The comp/d-ess control seems to govern the degree of effect applied, and the warmth control seems to add a little fullness to the voice when needed, to compensate for too much toppy crackle. I say "seems" in all cases since I had no supportive literature with this second-hand unit, but I knew TC products by reputation (I have their Prophet Digital Delay box which is excellent) and my review is purely subjective based on use, uncoloured by expectations based on manufacturers' information. The results are fairly subtle, which has led some people to say that the unit is ineffectual; I disagree: most people want their voice to sound natural, but as good as it can be within that criterion. This unit enhances the voice, it doesn't alter it. I now find it indispensable.
  3. Bop shit, He was talking about whistle voice. Not full on singing.
  4. Last week
  5. its 1.30 am GMT I have been out of bed for about 45 minutes now. I got out of bed this time so I could go fooling on the jimmyshitforbrains I have just been to my piano to hum the melody of the song which starts A4-C5-A4-C5 and so on. I can bearly hum the Cs!. I get half way through the song and I am out of breath and needed to go and lay on the bed. Morning singing dose not work for 2 reasons because all the nasel passes and voice box and diaphram mussels are all restricted due to gravity! let me explain.... When you are asleep you are not stood up you are laying down and things do not circulate properly. you nasels become conjested and a lot of flem appears on the cords. If you eaten a meal before you went to bed, that dose not digest properly while you are laying down. So when you wake up your belly if full and you can not maintain full breath support
  6. I dont know about them being relaxed in the morning they need warming up at that time I like to practice learning melodies pitched off against the piano I like to hum the notes as a warm up and I often do them in an octave higher as the warm up has no effect lower down. C6 is quite a push though
  7. why is it easy to sing whistle notes in the morning than in evening
  8. On good day I can hit up to B#6 or some time a C7
  9. When I wake up in the morning my whistle voice is clear but when it become difficult to do it I don't know y is it like that
  10. Earlier
  11. Thanks man! For the starting points what I´ve been doing is working a *lot* on dynamics and intensity control, from one extreme to the other. The final part is all out and what seems to do the trick is finding out what you need to keep "engaged" to keep it stable.
  12. awesome! any tips for thickening up your mix like you are doing here, without bringing up a whole lot of chest?
  13. On this day (may 16th), 10 years ago, the world lost one of the greatest, if not the greatest, rock and metal singer of all times. We´ve put together some of his most famous songs and will be releasing them during the week as a tribute and to celebrate his life and work. Long Live Rock n Roll! \m/
