  1. I am going to be singing at local clubs. Most of the songs on my list are from 80s and before although I do have a few from Rob Thomas, 3 Doors Down, The people in my area are more into Country but I cannot handle hearing too much of that at one time, let alone singing it all night.................. Any suggestions for what you would not mind hearing while drinking a beer or hooking up with that someone special? Or just sitting by yourself trying to get up the courage to approach that someone special? Anything Acoustic flavored from 2000 on will work. Thanks..............
  2. Hi Folks, I am using a MXL V67 G condenser mic into a Scarlett 2i2 interface. Sometimes I also use a Shure Beta 58. However, the gain on the beta 58 is insufficient with the scarlett 2i2. I really want to have a setup that allows me to record using my dynamic mic and also add some warmth to my vocals. X by TurboMac Some of the forums I came across suggested a preamp. Has anyone here have any experience with preamps. Do they make a difference with a setup like mine. Also, what is your feedback on Studio Projects VTB1 for vocals. The other preamp that I have in mind is the presonus tube pre. Thank you..
  3. An example for the use of music is its distribution to people through a sound system. If a singer, instrumentalist or a band wants to record, use, or perform music that is owned or controlled by somebody else, it is very likely that a license has to be obtained to do this on legal ground. Find out what kind of licenses control the use and recreation of music compositions, audio recordings, the use of music in public, the reproduction of sheet music, and the performance of theatrical productions. At Lead Vocals we also offer links and services to help you obtaining licenses for cover songs. The purpose of licensing The purpose of music licensing is to make sure that the people and companies involved in the creation process of music, like per example the composer, the record label, the performing artist, and the publisher will get paid for the work and effort they have put into a piece of music. Allowing somebody to use a piece of music either as a composition, or as a recording, can be understood like a trade between the creator and the licensee. Per example, if an artist is recording a cover song of another artist and is then distributing and selling that song on his or her own album release, he or she must ensure that the original composer of that song gets a share in form of a royalty. A royalty is a sum of money paid to the rights holder for each copy of a work sold, or for each public performance of a work. In common practice such royalties are most often calculated and collected in advance during the phase of producing the copies. Types of music licenses It is to mention that we in general distinguish between different kinds of uses for music, its recordings, and its production. Here is an overview with examples for the most common types of music licenses: In general a license is necessary when the task is done by someone, who did not create the work. The overview shows a common example, but is in no way a complete reference.

  8. Hi guys I became very much interested in the double tracking recording technique for vocals. I Was wondering how you guys do it. For instance, do you record the vocal tracks as many times you need or just copy and paste one or two tracks? When you record many times, do you mute the previously recorded track or let it play together? When you re-record vocals do you sing exactly in the same way? I appreciate it guys.
  9. Hi guys, today I had some spare time and recorded another Def Leppard song: Bringing on a Heartbreak. Please leave your comments, the good, the bad, an the worst. I hope you guys enjoy it. Cheers https://app.box.com/s/bc96apne2x4cifsdy8ey1uzszk3rb2ft

    RODE K2 Helps With Patsy Cline Classic

    Gorgeous Singing Here! Such a talent for dynamics and expression. Nice work Carmel who is a student at The Vocalist Studio performs the classic "Crazy" from Patsy Cline on the RODE K2.
  11. Hi guys, as some of you may know I am the happy owner of a vocal effects unit by Digitech (Vocalist Live FX), which I rely on to get a great sound when I'm performing or during band practice. I am not disputing which brand is the best/worst, but as I just stumbled on this short list from 2016, I thought it would be cool to share it with fellow members. I hope you enjoy it. Keep on Rocking! https://www.gearank.com/guides/vocal-effects-pedal
  12. This is a big enough topic, on it's own, so it deserves it's own discussion thread. Some popular production programs on the forums, are listed at the top. Several of us have some of these programs. I, myself, have Logic Pro X. Though, you're encouraged to join this discussion, whether you're using something else, or you're trying to find a program to start using. Let's get serious about this stuff. One of the places you can find bed tracks is HERE.

    One of my original songs

    Hi guys, I haven't been on the forum in quite a while. I have been busy working and also super busy with my various bands and projects. This is from my band Tair. Normally in this group I play guitar and sing harmony and some lead vox not unlike Jerry Cantrell. We do mainly rock in the vein of Foo Fighters and Alice in Chains type material but this song I wrote just didn't really fit into our normal material so I just finished it on my own because I hate to leave ideas unfinished lol. Anyways, I have mainly recorded cover songs for review on the forum but I have never posted my original material so I thought I would see what you think?
  14. Hi guys, as I got some free time yesterday I decided to record this power ballad by Def Leppard. I would appreciate it if you could tell me what you think and also tips to improve it. Keep on Rocking.
  15. Hi guys, yesterday I had some free time, so I just recorded this one for practice. Please let me know what you all think and also give me some pointers to improve it. Cheers
  16. Hey everyone! My name is David and I'm from a small town in the Yukon, Canada. The town I'm in is about 400 people and doesn't have much of a musical scene so I thought I'd check out this site :). So ever since 2014 I've been getting mentored by a songwriting/production group in the music industry. They've worked with everyone from Maroon 5 to Fifth Harmony (most recently). It all happened after I reached out to them with my lyrics. They immediately took me on and in these two years I've worked on honing in my lyrical and melodic abilities and even taught myself how to play the guitar (within this last year). The last part of this puzzle is singing. I've always felt this fire deep in me ever since I was young. But I was too scared to try out singing in front of teachers until recently. So within the last 2 months I've gone to about 3 or 4 online singing lessons, which I've been feeling pretty great about. I made a promise to myself that before I email these guys something new, it'll be when I can sing decently enough to intrigue them. I know I have it in me. Aside from this introduction (I hope I'm posting in the right place). I'd love to get some feedback and tips and even more than that after I share some videos here. I see that this community has some vocal coaches, so it would be awesome to hear from everyone. Singers and teachers alike!

    Tell me what you think

    I've heard feedback from many people some professional and some people who hear me perform. (Ignore the screenshot and outro it is just to increase views and engagement on YouTube) Give me some feedback!
  18. This was a contribution to the "Legends Lost" thread. Glenn Fry passed earlier this year. I found an old microphone while searching through my things and thought I would try it out. I am not sure how I ended up with it. It turns out that this is an Electrovoice 635A. An interview microphone used by reporters and such. I was using a Shure PE50 super pro(sm57 and sm58 were based on this) and I am not sure if the vocal improvement is from the Microphone or if Lessons are starting to pay off. Anyway I can tell a difference in the sound from this effort and songs recorded a week ago. Any comments welcome good or bad......improvement is the goal. I am aware of the harmony being flat in the final verse. It was getting late and time to stop. Still a major improvement from other efforts.
  19. 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
  20. just throwing this out for everyone's amusement and edification lol. Something I threw together hastily last night over a guys drum track Basically its a long 16 bar verse going into a chorus then there is a bridge section. I laid some really basic guitar down then had some fun filling up the bridge section with random vx stuff. No need for any heavy reviews....after all, how do u review madness? Just enjoy it lol very deep lyrics include,,,,,,,"you know your daddy loves you baby" and "somebody help the boy" http://www.wikiloops.com/backingtrack-jam-72453.php
  21. Going by GneeTaps suggestion, I wrote a chorus only today. Worked numerous hours for an 11 second snippet lol. workflow was along these lines: 1) Drums programmed yesterday 2) Started writing melody in D...starting on the highest note and working down. Starting note is (supposed to be anyway lol) a G#4 which is the flat5 in the key of D 3) started putting down a few scratch guitar parts using practice amp 4) sort of bounced back and forth between finalizing the melody and changing the guitar to fit better 5) Sang all the lead VX 6) Layered all the BGV. 4 separate lines, all doubled. It gets a little into the Eagles/Queen/Boston/Yes vibe 7) Redid all the guitar parts (still just used practice amp though). 2 main parts, both doubled 8) added bass 9) mixed....while falling asleep about 10x Anyway, let me know how it sounds. if nothing else its pretty interesting Here are all the various parts....pretty trippy hearing the layered vocal track by itself Full snippet https://clyp.it/41g4esi0 Rhythm Track https://clyp.it/joo5tv4l Full vocal tracks https://clyp.it/155rws0y Lead Vx only, definitely at the top end of my range https://clyp.it/uv0tgitn BGV only, 4 separate parts, each doubled (see if u can pick out the parts) https://clyp.it/bvfb0lkn Enjoy
  22. https://clyp.it/sidridqg essentially trying to learn to bridge etc. Not sure how much bridging is happening but for sure I can feel the benefit of doing some glottal attacks and trying to feel resonance up on my soft palate etc When picturing the song was thinking of Lynyrd Skynyrd but nothing I do will ever sound like LS lol.....I ended up going for a sort of Mick Jagger bratty vocal style on the verse compression/delay/tube distortion/rev etc used on vocals verse not doubled (but delayed etc) the 1 prechorus is obviously doubled chorus is obviously doubled and delayed etc etc. Usually I double and leave both doubles about the same volume to where it sounds chorusy....on the chorus I kept one double a little quieter a VERY scratch demo. , no bass, , no bgv, only 1 guitar track..gaping holes where solos and vocal banter should be. Some nice spots left for Whole Lotta Love type improv. Guitar will have to be redone etc..ending patched up. I forgot to edit out the cymbal count in lol enjoy
  23. Another 1 day wonder. not 100% finished...needs bass gtr and some ad libs such as in the intro chorus fun stuff https://clyp.it/ccf4wf40
