  1. My voice was pretty tight that day. I tried singing nasally today and my mix really opened up.
  2. WELP. I posted a link in review my singing in relation to this topic, of me trying to do a 50/50 mix, or the basics of a 50/50 mix.
  3. This is for my other technique post e.g. asking if this example is mix voice. Please don't critique unless you are looking to answer the question. I tried to keep the high notes from 'releasing', because I think that a rounded mix represents how it would work with legato, where as a released sounding mix may not work in legato phrasing. Sound-clip is amplified to 0db by default. https://soundcloud.com/eisacurry/mix-test/s-DhlV8
  4. Right. Well most of my practice has always been letting go of TA weight to reach the right coordination, so probably those muscles aren't used to this level of twang.
  5. I may be maximizing my twang with breath compression, but that seems to have been the only possible outcome of said exercises. If I sing in my head voice, it now feels like the top of the cords are vibrating and the bottom are tight and closed. This matches my results, because my upper tone is alwAys correct now, but now the body is missing. So I have to figure out how to loosen up the lower portion ... but I honestly have no idea what would do that. Placement adjustments seem to not help anymore. I don't have the exercises.
  6. So the question I have today, is a full mix or head Voice an actual possibility? I've been working on my breath compression for a while now and have had great results, but have one issue with tone. So as far as progression has gone, the first sensation was no longer leaking air, then I went through stretching sensations in the lower area of the throat, which I assumed was related to CT stretching. Then I found that if I adjusted my placement into the lower pharynx, I could actually produce both high and low tones without ever needing forward placement or any of the super forward placement I had during twang training. There has been lots of tonal gains, like the ability to mix tones better and my head voice achieving a very piercy tone instead of the wide falsetto back when I wasn't compressing my breath. But the one point of interest, Is that my head Voice in itself is "piercy", but I hear other people refer to a "mix" tonality as head Voice. So this is where I am getting these doubts. If I approach from my head voice, there's plenty of that piercy...upper harmonic sound but there's not that much chest energy. Where as if I go from the lower approach, there is a mix, but the lower harmonics are still clearly the louder ones. I'm very elated that I can mix tones better, but I also realize that my voice just doesn't like sitting anywhere between head dominant or chest dominant. Is it possible to get this 50/50 sound... at some point in the future. Because if it's not, doesn't that mean singers who are doing a full 50/50 tone are not actually using their chest voice to it's full extent?
  7. I think my appoggio on the "u" vowel is underdeveloped, which is why i lose energy past G4.
  8. Okay. I bought the RMS service. Can I post my link now or tomorrow when it processes.?
  9. So as the title says, stuck at F4 and can't go above it. Despite good adduction,twang,and appoggio. Once I hit G4 the balance starts faltering. I can sing above F4 with consistency but there's always some compromise, usually either a thinning with loss in body, or keeping the body but loss in upper ring.
  10. Not the kind of compression you are talking about. It has it's own dynamics, which contribute to that connected sound that people talk about.
  11. All of bobs posts here are hitting the nail on the head in terms of most types of compression. This "breath compression" however is distinctly different than any kind of twang or formant mechanism, in terms of my sensation.
  12. No. But it relies heavily on support(thats where all the force is).
  13. I believe what I'm referring to is breath compression, according to what bob described. It's not a specific formant type. I dont feel any added pressure while doing breath compression.
  14. Yeah. I've been getting a much better handle on it since i first posted.
