akarawd Posted July 24, 2010 Share Posted July 24, 2010 I had been using this type of distortion for years but had to stop because it had a detrimental effect on the rest of my singing voice - especially head voice. The sensation is like a grinding of the vocal cords and it can produce a burning in vocal cords area (no coughing). It can only be applied to the falsetto (impossible to make it occur below the passagio area) and it's neither resonant nor extremely loud. It's quite powerful though. Whenever I ran out of breath and couldn't hit a high note I could rely on this voice to sound convincing and tons more powerful on that ending phrase or note. It's pretty effortless to produce and can be produced using low volume but the end effect on the voice renders its use prohibiting. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1781520/Vocals/Hurting%20Distortion%20Vocal.mp3 I'd be grateful if someone could let me know what it is I was doing. Thanks in advance, akarawd PS. I am currently developing at least one different kind of distortion that is not taxing to the voice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
