  1. Yes, no, maybe. What is the point of counting range like this to begin with? Sing a song and use a D2, does it work? That´s all there is to it.
  2. Hard to hear that particular one, but the previous one (D2) was not, I presume this isn´t either. Fry just isn´t very useful to record a melody line.
  3. haha ok Rob I can agree that the teeth has some influence on acoustics (irrespective of feeling vibrations on them or not), however they are not capable of *doing much* they are a fixed element and whatever role they will play is just an outcome of the gesture made. A *bite* for example is the jaw moving, possibly lips.
  4. Not the teeth itself, but the lips: when you cover your teeth, the lips are rounder and make the mouth opening smaller, resulting in a darker color, when you spread your lips, show your teeth, mouth opening becomes bigger, resulting in a brighter color. You can test these extremes going from a OO vowel to AH for example.
  5. Sup Rob! It´s a modification of the DT version ( 2 semitones higher), there are unfortunately no other good bed tracks around for this one. Signal chain is an AKG P420, Steinberg UR44 and then on software a high pass (100hz), compressor with fast attack and release, very small amount of reverb and a delay with 2 taps on 1/8th to each side (with a small drag on one of the sides to give it a wider feel). I use the delay to produce the ambience instead of the Reverb.
  6. A study on one of my favorite songs, by my favorite singer
  7. I agree that the AC DC ones were good, I mean that it's a different type of beast. A lil more held back with distortion all the time works on AC DC, on GnR it just doesn't... And its the all out GnR high sound that he just can't pull anymore apparently.
  8. Part of the issue is that Guns n Roses vocals are much more aggressive than AC/DC and they extend over wider range, more sustain, etc. I just never heard Axl usingg his trademark raw scream after the 90s... he tries but something is always off, gets super thin and falls apart...
  9. Alright if you want to center it more, try focusing on the vowels EH and OH, do it first on the low range and try to make them sound clear/open, then go up. It could help a bit.
  10. Cool song with tons of different techniques all around.
  11. There are many possibilities here, one of them is that you are not really in chest voice, another that your voice is still not fully developed, and probably a combination of these... For males to go above A4 in chest voice it gets really brutal, an almost useless sound that you won´t be hearing much outside raw styles like Grunge/Punk. Though I would argue there is something to gain practicing it. Would love to hear a demonstration of what you mean though!
  12. I would call it belt because it´s getting the open character, but notice that some distortion starts to happen, and by the end, it still sounds open but there is a lil *cry* to it, these two are indications that it´s not totally centered. It sounds really cool.
  13. Hello, it comes with practice, the essential part is to keep trying to find your way to it, playing the line first and trying to get it right on the context of the harmony is a good practice for it. The issue is, when you are singing with others you will all have to be on the same key, otherwise it is going to be chaos, so a good idea would be to study the idea of musical scales and transposing the melody line within the scale, this way you can sing a 3rd bellow for example. And this is very different for our perception compared to moving the whole harmony up/down. I hope it helps!
  14. Sup, a teacher is likely to be a good option, I specialize on metal and this type of power vocals, maybe I can help you. An example: But, it´s a LOT of work ahead of you, Dio, Lande, Russel Allen, are in my opinion on a level of their own. Welcome to the journey \m/
  15. Join us on the messenger groups! I think you would love it
  16. Well it may be unintended, but there is a huge amount of compression/limiting (even clipping) happening in this clip, very audible specially on the chorus, also low/high pass filtering. It´s much more lo-fi than it is a realistic picture of how it was sounding live there, which are expected aspects of recording with a phone or cheap camera. Which is not to say that it isn´t really good, love the power.
  17. Very cool man the power is there, and it sounds like you can get comfortable with it. Have you worked a lot on it already? Keep singing with this idea and try to consolidate it, at least on AC/DC you are pretty much set with this (actually a lot of things will go well with it).
  18. Thanks bro! Ah it´s awesome all around, a bit different from the usual Maiden formula (which I also love).
  19. Thanks man!!! Ah you are in for some fun then, don´t skip Dehumanizer, and then there is his solo work... damn.
  20. Our cover of this awesome song, we are doing the whole Mob Rules, a song/week. Coming up this weekend is the title song Mob Rules!
