Hi Terry,

I finally got a chance to listen to some of your tunes on your latest Vocal Cd project.
Musicly I enjoyed most of the songs, as usual there is a nice easy flow & great guitar work for a very soothing sound.
But honestly I think the vocals need more work especially in the editing EFX & Harmony usuage. Most have too much reverb to my ear. Another thing is that you use Too Much Harmony thruout the songs [right from the begining] which overcasts your real voice that should be Clearly
"UP FRONT" in the mix IMO. I would use the Voc Harmony sparingly as to create a natural sound of a few singers doing background.
Also try a mixed vocal setting Eg:
Mens Choir versus a unison one. Remember these are my opinions only.
Oherwise thanx for sharing and
Happy New Year..

Jam On

Donny,
Thanks for the valuable input here. I hear what you are saying and the cd really runs the gambit from little or no harmony to too much, to some ears.

IMO, my voice flat with nothing is not all that great and not even that good with the reverb etc., added so I suppose to make it at least somewhat tolerable to my own ears I try to embelish it.

Difficult balance to find just the right amount of everything.
thanks,
Terry

Hey Terry .....I found that using a "chorus" effect can thicken you vocal tracks vs. reverb .

You may want add some transposition somewhere in some of your songs .

DanO,
Thanks for the feedback. I do chorus up on some of the vocals too.

Terry,

I agree with Donny.
What reverb type do you use most of the time ? Is it the 'room' (short)type ?
I prefer 'Room' reverb for blues or (hard)rock. E.g. In the first song the instruments have a great, bright & long reverb... while your voice has almost none.

I expect the 'hall' or 'concert' or 'large hall' to sound better with your voice. For vocals EQ's to bright/clear sound.

The Harmony voices (Tyros ?) sound too much 'robot'... perhaps you should try the VoiceWorks TC that has voice-thickening, pitch-correction, great reverbs, natural-vibration and non-robot voices.

Perhaps the voice panning is too extreme ?

Again : My opinions !!

Roel

Thanls for the input. That is the Voiceworks you're hearing on all the harmonies....oh well. Where it is my voice alone what you are hearing is the thickener with pitch correction on.

I do use a live room type reverb though, good ear. The hall reverb always seems too much to my ears.
