So, today I've tried singing a new song I wrote for the band. I think I'll leave it to our lead singer but it was interesting hearing myself through an amp. When I record myself I know that my head voice sounds much fatter than it sounds in my head. When I record it goes from Bee Gees falsetto in my head to almost one voice. Let's say 1.1 voice... when I sang and heard myself through the monitors it was weird though. I felt like I was singing the notes (which is good) but it really sounds different, and made me instinctively not understand why I'm not in head voice in places where I usually switch... the monitors overtake the sound that's in my head, of course... My question is, how do you practice on coordinating yourself with what you hear from the 'outside'? any tips on how to get over the difference in what one hears? Any (very) affordable solutions for home use and practice? I mean, I have a tube amp for my guitar... not sure how a vocal mic would work on it though... Edit: After writing this I figured out I can experiment with a recording device I have with a built in mic and output for headphones. Still, if anyone has any ideas, thoughts, experience - I'd love to hear about it.
Hi, since I don't have a vocalist yet, I have to do the vocal track of my original songs on my own. I'm a songwriter and not a singer. I have some microphones, all are Dynamic one (can't afford yet for the condenser). I've just bought Behringer Tube Ultragain mic200 preamp. These stuff still produce noises/hum; if I touch the mic cable or touch the mic, the noise getting louder (just a bit but louder), and even not touched the noise is still there. The booth is fine, the distance (mic to computers, mic to mouth) is also fine. Should I connect the preamp to a mixer or should I change the soundcard (with what type/brand)..? or condenser mic is a must? (I'm using Adobe Audition 3.0) Thanks!
