Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Addendum: to demonstrate to myself, again, that I'm not talking shit, I just spent a while trying to use the latest and greatest Melodyne to modernize the vocal tuning in one of my songs a little. I needed to correct the note detection in about 30% of all notes (which is pretty terrible because man...

Re: Let's all sit down and read (Poetry In The Streets Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene Great job on the vocals, Ken! There are some wonky chord changes at times and you navigated that well. I actually the synthy sound of the very tuned harmony vocals. I wish we'd had more time to work on having the dynamics come down in the bridge, I think what we did is fine th...

Now I want to read studies and papers on perception of singing quality. Think I'll start with this one:

New Music Friday - 11/16/18

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

I can't help but think that this might be at least partially aimed at me. I don't have any compunction about pitch correction, but I don't seem to be very good at using it. I have tried it several times, but it always seems to sound overly electronic. The only time it made it onto the finished mix ...

Tuning Vocals in Post

Vocal pitch is SOOO important to the listening experience for the vast majority of people. We're all making these songs really quickly and singing is hard. I personally don't feel any shame in throwing some general light-medium autotune on vocals, and investing some (potentially significant) time ha...

Artiphon Instrument 1

This seems like a potentially really cool controller:

https://artiphon.com/

Lots of dimensions of control and usable sort of like a fretted or fretless strummed/string instrument, and a keyboard, and drum pads, etc.

Re: Deals On Gear and Software

I was sucked into the sauce yesterday... hope it's as groovy as everyone says it is... I had also grabbed the Supro Fuzz a few days earlier as well... waiting for them to arrive so that I can stack them. Ooh. I almost ordered that Supro Fuzz. I bet that's going to be a really hot pairing. I'd love ...

Today's deal is the Saucy Box overdrive pedal for $69, down from $130! https://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid They had this same deal a couple months back and I bought the pedal and I think it sounds awesome in general and it sounds especially awesome at that price.

BSS is going to cover "Step Up" but it may take us a bit to get it done due to scheduling and holidays and travel.

Re: Beg forgiveness for our transgressions in our (Burnt Orange Offering Reviews)

BSS - I like the vocal (and the melody) quite a bit. And the arrangement is good. I checked the lyric thread but there ain't nothing in it. On first listen this seemed like something that I would appreciate more than I enjoy. But I am enjoying. Doh, I completely forgot to post the lyrics. Here they...

Re: Well actually, that's violet (Indigo Wave reviews)

For those who didn't catch it, BSS's song was about eating Tide pods, with our lyric's authors imagining "Riding the indigo wave" being slang for that activity. Now Tide has an even better way to ride the indigo wave!

Forever (Amazon TV series)

We just finished this show. It's slow and weird but I think ultimately pretty beautiful. Definitely of a kind with "Master of None". I hope they get to do a second season! Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph were great.
