  1. Microphones from NAMM 2018! Click "22 New Photos" Below
  2. David Weaver is a personal training that has professional experience with physical training. This is why The Four Pillars of Singing vocal program made sense to David. He understands that voice training, is an athletic endeavor and requires physical strength building. This is why the TVS training program, The Four Pillars of Singing made sense to him. Congratulations to David Weaver for releasing his first full album. Great music David! It was a lot of fun to coach you on these songs, I can really connect with what your doing. Coach Robert.
  3. The Carbonphone by Placid Audio is a very unique microphone for anyone who is interested in experimenting with sound. Its military grade carbon granule element captures sound and creates a "lofi" sound that is naturally distorted. Creating sounds similar to scratchy vinyl or an old military radio, this microphone is perfect for anyone looking to recreate a more vintage tone or anyone looking to create something new altogether. Included with the microphone is the Tone Box which provides the current which is needed to power the microphone. While the microphone can be powered by any standard 9 volt power supply, the Tone Box can also shape the sound through a variable five position filter circuit. Each selection on the control knob offers a different frequency response, allowing the Carbonphone to be used on a broad range instruments and for various applications. Because the sound of Carbonphone has a character unlike many other traditional mics, it makes a great addition to any recording enthusiast’s arsenal of microphones. It can be used as an all out obvious ‘effect’ on it’s own or it can be paired with other traditional microphones for infinite blending possibilities. The Carbonphone is a perfect microphone for any person looking to update their studio with new sounds but it is also usable for live performances and with its high durability and great resistance to high pressure sound levels. FEATURES Military grade carbon granule capsule Fully balanced output Quality Hammond output transformer Rugged copper housing and components Powered 5 position variable filter Tone Box Tone Box doubles as a phantom power source Tone Box can be used with other microphones 9 volt power supply for Tone Box High quality Nuetrik 3 pin XLR connectors Handcrafted in the U.S.A Lifetime operational warranty Adjustable aircraft aluminum mounting bracket to fit North American style stands (will fit European style stands with common threaded adapter) SPECS Type: Carbon Polar Pattern: Cardioid Frequency Response: 100Hz ­- 10kHz Impedance: 600 ohms Output: 120 +/­ 2dB SPL @ 1 kHz Mic Dimensions: 1.75 x 5.5 inches Tone Box Dimensions: 5.25 x 4.25 x 2.25 inches Mic Weight: 1 lbs. Tone Box Weight 0.70 lbs. *The Modern Vocalist World is brought to you by The Vocalist Studio, course and training for singers.
  4. I filmed this in one-take in Seattle with @Robert Lunte at The Vocalist Studio. I brought this song to Robert because I tended to push WAY too hard and wear out my vocal cords by the end of it, in 2.5 minutes! As a performer and teacher, that was unacceptable! We worked on sobbing/crying through the song, which made it FAR easier to sing. This convinced me that Sob Vocal Mode works like magic. Crying through the song not only released extra tension, but also made it much more emotional to sing. I usually train a song through a cocktail straw for a week to get the same result. Purposefully adding sob meant I didn't have to do that. Speaking of magic... Do you see that mic and filter? Aston's Halo Reflection Filter works better than anything I've used in my decades as a recording engineer, beating out sE Electronic's flagship product by a very large margin. The room is not treated at all and sounds like a reverb chamber, and yet the raw vocal track was perfectly dry. Aston's mic, Origin, is also the first solid state mic I've ever truly loved, which says a lot if you know me. Apparently, it's built like a tank too, without exaggerating at all. And no, I didn't get paid to say any of that.
  5. Hi all ! I recorded a cover of the song Perfect (Ed sheeran) and I would like your opinion and feedbacks : Thank you in advance Best
  6. Congratulations Brooke Sunny Moriber, on your new EP "Here and Gone". This tune "99 Days of Rain", its great. Lovely harmonies and super catchy. I think a strong hit for radio syndication. I look forward to catching up with you one day soon.
  7. A Diphthong is a sound formed by the combination of two vowels in a single syllable, in which the sound begins as one vowel and moves toward another (as in coin, loud, and side ). Often times the second vowel color is a narrowed language vowel such as "ee", "oo", or the R-Controlled vowels; "er", "ur", "ar", "ir". These narrowed language vowels found in diphthongs, are one of the PRIMARY reasons why singer's voices break and weaken when singing in the head voice. The solution? ... Be aware of this issue and then train your articulators to learn how to shape diphthongs in the head voice with slow and controlled detail work. www.TheVocalistStudio.com. From the 2nd webinar with Draven Grey.
  8. The Copperphone by Placid Audio is a vintage character effect microphone. Unlike full range high fidelity microphones, it operates within a limited bandwidth of frequencies which imparts a compelling nostalgic quality on the signal. Some might compare the sound to an AM radio or an old telephone... The sound is achieved through a combination of the microphone’s element and a mechanical filtering device. The element is rear ported into a hollow resonant chamber and as sound passes through the diaphragm into the chamber, upper midrange frequencies are accentuated while low and high frequencies are reduced. The Copperphone can be used as a stand-alone mic on vocals or any other instrument to create an all-out, attention-grabbing sonic effect. Or it can be used in conjunction with a more traditional mic and the resulting signals can be blended together for subtle character and midrange enhancement. Sound samples of the Copperphone on vocals and various instruments can be heard here: https://www.placidaudio.com/products/copperphone/ The critically acclaimed Copperphone is the worlds most popular vintage effect microphone and used by hundreds of professionals and vocalists around the world. Here are just a few notable users: Norah Jones (Norah Jones) Sam Smith (Sam Smith, 2014 Grammy Winner) Annie Clark (St. Vincent, 2015 Grammy Winner) Sean Lennon (Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Cibo Matto) Beck (Beck) Jack White (Raconteurs, The White Stripes) Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) Tom Petty (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) Geddy Lee (Rush)
  9. Sometimes great songs come quickly in a burst of inspiration. This is the story of my student Michael Murray who had a song writing experience like that. Be sure to enjoy his performance video titled, "3000 Miles of Room". Special thanks to Ear Trumpet Labs Microphones for giving us the opportunity to record with their gorgeous "Chantelle" microphone. Check out these incredibly unique, handbuilt microphones from Portland, OR. http://www.eartrumpetlabs.com/ Michael has been a TVS student for about 2 years. He came into his lesson one week before this video was created and said, "I wrote a new song last night". When I heard the song I was blown away. This song has magic and it truly is great. I insisted that he come back immediately and record the song in our studio. Enjoy! "3000 Miles of Room" copyright (c) 2017, Michael Murray, All Rights Reserved. Used by permission of the author.
  10. Robert Lunte from The Vocalist Studio. Don't wait to train, get started now. Stop procrastinating. Too often students want to wait until they have completed the course, read the book and feel they understand everything before actually starting with the physical training. DON'T DO THIS! It can quickly become a subconscious excuse for procrastinating. As you take the course and read the book, you also need to learn via kinesthetics, or learn by doing it, feeling it, hearing it and more.
  11. Congratulations to Priscila da Costa. Our new TVS Certified Instructor in Luxembourg. Priscila da Costa trains 40 hours for TVS Certification in Seattle, WA with Robert Lunte. She is now an expert in the TVS Method and is prepared to help singers around the world. https://thevocaliststudio.com/tvs-certified-instructor-program/ I am very impressed with what I saw and heard during your teacher training. You will be GREAT! Super proud and your students are fortunate to have you. Be sure to listen to the last chorus, it is amazing. Priscila da Costa is a TVS Certified Instructor from Luxembourg. This is her original song, "Twisted Mind" that we worked on together in preparation for her EP release and this video.

  13. There’s nothing more intimidating than a blank piece of paper. Starting the process of writing a new song can take just as long as finishing it. So here’s seven tips to help you speed up your songwriting. 1. Work in a group, then alone Having a few people to bounce ideas around with helps the creative process get started. After you’ve got your song started, the democratic process is more likely to slow you down. If you’re writing songs as part of a band, it can be better to go and complete your parts individually once you’ve gotten the overall idea in place. 2. Drink alcohol, then coffee Research has shown that drinking alcohol boosts your creativity, but makes it hard to focus. Coffee, and other drinks containing caffeine, has the opposite effect. For your brainstorming session, loosen up with a few drinks. This works especially well if combined with the first tip, but be careful not to get carried away and turn it into a drinking session. Once you’ve sat down to start writing the ideas you have onto paper, fire up the kettle. 3. Give chance a chance After a long music career, you might find that all of your songs are starting to sound the same. There’s nothing wrong with having a recognisable sound, but you don’t want to get stale. Shake things up by writing different elements of songs onto pieces of paper, such as keys, lyrical themes, and so on. Place them into a hat and draw five at random. Force yourself to use these, no matter how badly they seem to go together. The results can be surprisingly good - and more importantly they help you to think outside of your usual boundaries. 4. Write somewhere different Creativity doesn’t exist in a void. If you want to be inspired, go for a long walk somewhere far away from your usual haunts. The change of scenery, fresh air and act of walking itself can be great for generating new ideas. If nothing else, it gives you a chance to let yourself relax. Stress is a major impediment to creativity. 5. Learn your music theory I don’t care how unappealing this seems. You might think that learning theory chokes your freedom or that it’s boring. However, if you don’t know what the rules around music are, it’s impossible to break them in a way which is both purposeful and well-executed. This applies no matter what genre you’re in. For example, my own personal foray into EDM was vastly improved when I started learning about cadence, a concept from choral music. 6. Steal from other songs Now let me just clarify something before we go any further. I am absolutely not telling you to copy somebody else’s song in it’s entirety and try to pass it off as your own. That’s not songwriting, and you’re unlikely to get away with it for very long. What you can do, is jot down interesting chord progressions, licks and lyrics. Playing around with these later, such as using inverted versions of the chords, trying it in a different key or modulating can lead to something brand new as the changes you’ve made will lead to a naturally different conclusion. 7. Use good notation software Writing music by hand can take quite a while, and you can’t always check to see if it sounds right straight away. By using notation software, such as Sibelius, or if you can’t read music, just programming the notes into a digital audio workstation (DAW) can transform your songwriting process completely, as it’s quite easy to quickly change sections of your music without having to rewrite every single note. Armed with these tricks, your songwriting skills will change practically overnight. It doesn’t matter if you apply all of them at once (although that isn’t entirely practical) or try them out a few at a time. Your own process is going to be a factor in this, so perhaps some of them won’t be entirely applicable. Don’t fret about this, just do the ones that feel ‘right’ to you.

  20. Hello singers! Please give me your honest opinion and take your time for constructive criticism if needed. I did my best and have just recently switched over to softer music! Here it is, its a little about 1 minute
  21. I just started singing and I came across a few youtube videos of men singing high notes. How are men able to hit notes this high? https://youtu.be/iVPKMiftpAo
  22. No one has ever told me HONESTLY what they think about my singing voice. I'm scared to share with friends because some people I show act like it's bad but they are just being polite about it. So please someone just tell me what I need to work on so I can perfect my passion and share it with friends! https://m.soundcloud.com/illwill6
  23. You can NOT become a better singer by only experiencing the pleasure of training and singing. Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. Martin Luther King, Jr. To belittle knowledge and the way things work, is a popular tactic that is occasionally seen by some people in the singing industry. It is interesting to note that people who make the "less knowledge and understanding is not very important to learning how to sing", argument all suspiciously have one thing in common. They don't have a product to sell and/or if they do, the offering lacks depth. They don't choose to explain how and why the singing voice does what it does. You will never see CVI, EVTS, TVS or programs that offer some scientific insights publish a video or forum post that makes the claim, "... you don't have to know all that complex stuff, just let your inner feelings carry you through. That's all you need. It should never be hard, it should always be easy. You can just will it to happen. Don't bother learning any of the science of singing"... The world's best training programs will never say that. There are two things that motivate people. Pain and pleasure. Some people like to be given permission to avoid all the pain from voice training and learning how to sing. Promise them that they can learn to sing better without any "pain", ( practice, commitment, doing the same thing over and over again, reading a book, paying attention to a lesson, understanding a methodology, understanding how vowels work, etc... ), and they happily get on board. They don't want any "pain" associated with training or learning how to sing better. They only want instant gratification and pleasure. By no means is everyone like this. However, for those that do respond to that message, there will always be someone there to "sell" it to them.
