Based on your post I get the impression that you just sing but don't take voice lessons. If that is true I'd recommend getting a voice coach. They can help you "develop" your voice properly and extend your range. As another answer pointed out you don't discover range you develop it. With proper technique you might have half an octave more on each side of ...

If your goal is to find which octave the original recording is... just go to the keyboard and find which note matches the voice on the recording. This process can be tedious at first but will help you to develop your ear for hearing which octave something is in.

The harmonium is a useful aid at this stage since: it is a keyed instrument, so even a beginner can reproduce ...

As a contralto i think of myself as a female bass with a baritone tessitura...e2 to A4, maybe a little higher on a day when my energy level is high and i can really employ power...most comfortable in third octave rang. I take lessons and have learned that with proper technique and the correct key I can adapt most songs to my range. I think power or air/...

The big problem is that the source wave form is rather complicated. A singing voice is not something that is easily composed like an instrument sound (and instrument sounds themselves are remarkably complicated which is part of why primitive sampling technologies (like the Mellotron) couldn't effectively emulate real instruments. You would need to have ...
