Men's voices continue to change well into their twenties. I started off as a bass (solid E2) and ended up as a mid-high bari. There's not much point in worrying about vocal classification right now. Anyway, something's off with your octave numbers, or your labeling of vocal registers. C6 is soprano high C. There's no way you're singing that in modal ...

Should I buy an audio interface to support my AT2020USB mic? Is it necessary to buy it... If you keep the existing microphone, than no. The primary purpose of an audio interface is to convert an analog signal into a digital one. Because your microphone is a USB mic (and USB cables carry a digital signal) there is already an analog-to-digital converter ...

You can, and there's nothing wrong with that. It's the simplest way to harmonize your melody (notes sung) to the underlying chords. The next simplest way, and one that is pretty much guaranteed to not produce any dissonance, is to sing a note from the chord you're playing over. For the C chord, then, that would be C, E, or G. Beyond that, it's up to you. ...

Vocaloid has already been mentioned and it's the most popular solution to date, although it's still quite far from a real voice. There are other apps like VocalWriter, quite old but interesting, or Text to Sing. Lately Realitone released Blue, not a full vocal synthesizer per se, but it includes a word builder and sounds pretty great. You may also want to ...

Singing pitch is mainly controlled by the tension on the vocal folds. Higher pitch, higher tension. You failed to mention your age: the vocal folds (basically peripheral parts of muscles) and other movable parts of the larynx are fixed to cartilage. This cartilage construct gets a growth spurt (like a calving glacier) when your voice changes in puberty ...

I found my mix, but it took 19 years of not realizing this is what it was, and 5 months of practice every day to extend it up from the passagio using classical technique. Now new notes are appearing like crazy, and I thought I had four more notes to go, and that was it...Nope. As soon as I mix one, another unmixed one appears. It's kind of amazing... Ever ...

Average Trained Baritone range is F2-G4(A4 Extreme). Average Trained tenor range is A2-C5(Eb5 Extreme). falsetto range can vary between the two, in fact some baritones can ...

The answer to most of this is relax, keep your throat muscles loose (yawning actually helps with this). An audience wants you to be good, so they're typically behind you, but if you act nervous, that'll come across in the 'feel' of the gig more than anything. There's various techniques, keep moving your feet beforehand, to keep blood flowing. Breathe ...

Falsetto is a vocal register, i.e. a way that the vocal folds vibrate. There are four vocal registers: the vocal fry register the modal register the falsetto register the whistle register (an interesting websites with examples of all the registers) Women as well as men can phonate certainly phonate in the falsetto register. It’s my understanding (but I ...

It seems to make sense that people with lower voice, male or female, meaning with thicker vocal chord, to more easily produce falsetto sound. They partially vibrate their thinner edge of their vocal chords and can more easily make a more distinguished falsetto sound.

Sorry to be critical but your answer to 'control' the larynx will not accomplish much.....you have to manually be aware of the base of your tongue which is connected thru the hyoid bone to the larynx below it....people freak out when they hear this and that's their problem, they probably still don't have control over their larynx to boot, but the point is ...

When using "Czardas" as an example for portamento identity, it's important to note that the interpretive portion of the piece is heavily rubato, disregarding time/tempo and leaving much to expression. A clear definition of portamento (as I perform it, attacking a note and sliding to another with no discernable voicings in between,and almost immediately ...
