  1. Are you in the market for a microphone? Don't say no. If you are a serious vocalist, then you are ALWAYS looking out for the latest and greatest microphones on the market. (And we already know that you're a serious vocalist, because you're here, reading the TVS blog, after all.) Maybe you're already a microphone aficionado, and reading this blog post will be like eating candy for you. Perhaps you aren't yet an expert, and you're wondering which are the best microphones for singers. Whatever brings you here, read on, because this post is for you. If you are a dedicated vocalist studying the TVS method, then you'll definitely want to start training with amplification. That much is a given. So let's discuss some of the different types of microphones out there, talk about a few of Robert Lunte's go-to recommendations, and then check out some of the newest, coolest mics from the recent 2018 NAMM show. First off, basics. Feel free to skip this first section if you're already a complete authority on microphones. For the relative newbies to the world of vocal amplification, there are TONS of different mics on the market, but we're going to briefly discuss a few major classifications today: Dynamic Microphones Condenser Microphones Ribbon Microphones Modeling Microphones Wireless Microphones Read on to find out the some of the main differences between these types of tech. [caption id="attachment_155243" align="alignright" width="238"] The JZ HH1 - A Great Handheld Microphone from Latvia. Dynamic Microphones Dynamic microphones are more commonly used in live settings, on stage. They are generally the most sturdy microphones out there and are usually on the less expensive side. If you have never before purchased a microphone, a decent dynamic mic is an excellent place to start, as they are the top recommended microphones for beginners. Click HERE and use the code: VOCALISTSTUDIO to get a special TVS deal on the JZ HH1. Condenser Microphones The Audio Technica AT5047 Cardioid Condenser Microphone commonly used in studio settings. Typically a bit more delicate than dynamic microphones, condenser mics are more sensitive and responsive, and they offer a more true-to-life sound than dynamics. They can pick up on finer nuances in sound. If you are looking for a microphone to use in a home studio that has some degree of soundproofing, you might want to look into condenser microphones. Ribbon Microphones The AEA KU4 Unidirectional Ribbon Mic Ribbon microphones are a unique style of mic, built around a thin piece of metal -- the “ribbon.” They have a rich natural sound and can capture the glorious tone from old recordings made in the 40s. However, they are often very delicate and fragile and they can be quite expensive. There are ribbon mics out there designed for live use, but they can still be a little more easily damaged than your go-to dynamic mic... so be very careful if using a ribbon mic on your next rock gig, and maybe consider saving the ribbon for studio use only! The Antelope Audio Edge Modeling Microphone Modeling Microphones Modeling microphones are more of a specialty item right now, but they are promising technology, poised to change the way we record vocalists and change the way we even think about mics. These are microphones that are designed to “model” other microphones. Picture a microphone that can recreate either the same iconic sound from the mic the Frank Sinatra used… OR the same sound from the mic that your favorite radio host uses today. These microphones are incredibly versatile. They pair with advanced modeling engines to create killer recordings, and are amazing. The Rode RODELink Performer Kit Digital Wireless Wireless Microphones Wireless microphones are used in any setting where the vocalist needs to be moving around a great deal. Training with a wireless microphone can be incredibly useful for vocalists who need to prepare for work in musical theatre or in any active performance setting. (Think of Beyoncé. Does she just stand and sing in front of a stationary mic at every show? Absolutely not.) Vocalists need to be able to perform in various different settings, with various different microphones, so training on a wireless system can be extremely beneficial, even for a beginning vocalist. Click HERE For Recommended Microphones & Home Recording Gear! Top Recommended Microphones To access the full list of mics that Robert recommends that vocalists use, in order to train with amplification, then you’ll need to pick up your copy of The Four Pillars of Singing. However, we can tell you two hand-picked mics from Robert Lunte’s list: 1) The JZ HH1 & The Sennheiser e935 Dynamic Microphone These are robust, reliable handheld microphones that are reliable and sound great. The e935 has a fantastically balanced EQ, both low and high end. It is also super durable. Definitely should be one of your frontline microphones. The JZ HH1 is unique because it has a great balance of low and high end, but unlike other handhelds, it has an "airyness" or "windyness" to the coloration which I actually really like! This unique element to the microphones coloration gives the mic a hair of white noise. I think this mic is very well suited for rock and metal for this reason. 2) The Antelope Audio Edge Duo & Edge Solo The Antelope Audio emulation microphones are really cutting-edge. Emulation technology allows singers to use plug-ins to capture the unique sound coloration characteristics of 18 of the world's most legendary, classic recording microphones. In other words, you can purchase one microphone system, and get the sound color and characteristics of 18 microphones but just dropping and menu and selecting the emulation you want. VIEW THE VIDEOS BELOW. Make sure to check out the Antelope Audio emulation microphones at The Vocalist Studio Vocal Gear Store! You can also purchase directly from Antelope Audio HERE and use this code to save $50: thevocaliststudio% 3) The Rode RODELink Performer Kit Digital Wireless Audio System The Rode RODELink Performer Kit is a fabulous solution for the vocalist on the lookout for a wireless microphone that is inexpensive. Easy to set up, with a good sound, this system is something to consider if you’ve ever wanted to train and perform with a wireless microphone. 4) Vintage Microphones from the 60s, 70s & 80s Two vintage microphones from Robert Lunte's collection. The Electro-Voice SRO-627B and the Italian RCF MD 2702[/caption] One of the most interesting and fun ways to purchase a microphone is to shop for refurbished microphones from previous eras. Many of these microphones sound great, just as good, or almost as good as contemporary microphones. They are all very rare. Great for microphone geeks and collectors. The industrial design and novelty of vintage handheld microphones is a big reason why these microphones are sought after. Here is a site where Robert Lunte shops for vintage microphones. Reverb.

  2. Hi. I am really bored being Baritone. I am not sure i'm a Baritone or Not. But i have totally un-trained voice and i have also, fry voice problem by Acidic reflux. I have damaged vocal cords but still i can sing. I don't know i have to chance to become Lyric tenor? Or i am a tenor or baritone? When my voice health before, my vocal range: Full chest: E2 (Very weak and force low note) up to A4-B4 and with force alot C5 Mixed chest: I don't know this technique so i don't know. Falsetto: Max note G5 i only know (But screaming) (And my falsetto is airy and dramatic sounds like very Mickey mouse tone) Head voice: Very weak but max note C5 probably. Here is my some cover tests: This recording when my voice is health... (Old a little bit)
  3. This is just to show the difference between my "normal" singing , an idea of the "tongue root" being involved in '"Brightening the sound" or increasing the Higher frequencies. The "SOUND" of a low larynx(Adams Apple). Low Larynx + Tongue root "Brightness" and a HIGH Larynx with perhaps Cricoid Tilt. In that order. You can check with whatever program you want to see what formant differences there are if any. I do not have a program for that. The last clip surprised me. I did not get closer to the mic or turn up any volume. All differences are at the level of the vocal folds. I did not change breathing patterns or intensity. I did not try to change any vowels other than lowering my larynx on the two low larynx examples and the last clip I was using a ""Fat Albert" (Bill Cosby Cartoon from the 70s) coordination which is close to swallowing with a high larynx, closed mouth and flat tongue. Possibly what is called a cricoid tilt also. I am not trying to sound good. I am only giving examples. I only tried to sing this a few days ago. This is not to impress anyone. I know the flaws.
  4. Hi everyone, I've always loved to sing but I've always been shy to show it to the world. I had singing lessons in the past but once I started a university degree I stopped singing and focused on my degree. I am now stable in my job but this passion for singing has never gone away. Could you give me your feedback please? Thank you so much, this means the world to me. I have a youtube video singing a capella: And also some covers on SoundCloud:

  10. Hi everyone, I asked for feedback here over a year ago and really took the advice to heart! I've been practicing some more, but feel that I've kind of hit a wall with improvement. I want to become technically better and have a stronger voice (I feel I sound weak when I sing and I sound a bit flat) and I would like better vocal control. Any suggestions on what I could work on in particular? I'm open to any kind of constructive criticism since I want to get to the next level, thank you in advance to anyone responding! My Soundcloud:

  15. I've been really struggling determining my voice type. I've been singing since i was young but it was only the past year where i started being concerned with technique, agility, range, etc... I know i am not the best singer but it would really be great if someone will try to classify my voice and help me develop! My lows notes usually is from C#2-B3 but it can also reach B1 (vocal fry), I my voice starts to crack somewhere in F4 and G4 idk if i start transitioning from chest to mixed here but i know my voice switches into something else in this part. Idk where my head voice starts but it can reach up to G5. My falsetto can go as high as C6 sometimes Eb6 or higher but it's really hard and sounds very weak if i try to go higher than C6 and my whole voice gets tired and uncontrollable after overutelising it. Idk if i am resonant or if i have a good support. I'm not sure if i'm doing runs properly. Also, idk if i'm singing healthy. Self learning is hard ughhh Very high falsetto: https://soundcloud.com/user-935041544/img-2954 Comfortable falsetto: Me singing:

  20. Hello Fellow TMVW members! Humbling though it may be, I thought I would share a track I'm working on, (Beatles - In My Life) and the vocal "sculpting" process I go through in an effort to record my best performance. (I'd never share unfinished tracks except to friends and in this forum . . . plain vanity) I've had a lot of experience analyzing my vocals for recordings, I never quite knew how to articulate the process I was engaging in nearly as well as after having gone through The Four Pillars of Singing, learning the "talk track" I've heard Robert Lunte utilize across many hours of lecture videos! Once one is familiar enough with these "mechanisms" for mending, strengthening, or otherwise fine tuning a vocal line, the mystery about what to do goes away! Rob's techniques are structured in a simple, yet meticulous sequence that really does create the feeling of having a vocal sculpting tool box! I'm posting this both as a subject of interest to others who may be starting out with this type of challenge, and as a means of accountability for me to complete the process, which has been brutal for me due to inexperience with the recording software. It's good for me though, as I intend to record several old hit favorite song interpretations in the coming months. I'll post my final "sculpture" here for this track when I finally complete it. "Work to be done" on this vocal performance is: Pitchy lyrics / appaggio drop out, vowel mods for best resonance, better phrasing, embouchure brightening, slight lightening of mass throughout, . . . . I'm sure there's more, also, rhythm guitar mistakes, and guitar solo is not quite tight yet, not happy with the effects on my voice yet either. I'm contemplating leaving the last "in my life" line unresolved like it is now. I was trying to sing that last half of the last line and had to quit recording due to a leaf blower. I think i'll like it that way, maybe with a high harmony over the top. Lastly, I may end up using a different mic than I did for this take. One thing that clearly gets hammered home in this process is that performing live is a far more forgiving environment than being under the microscope of a recording. Peace, k
  21. Hi there, Why does this spectrogram of me singing a scale show more than one frequency at the same time?
