Yes, I have actually recorded something...
« on: July 03, 2013, 11:08:15 pm »
Okay, three points I want to make first:

1. I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice I hate my voice (actually, in real life I quite like my voice but I think this recording absolutely butchered it)...

2. This was done in a little over an hour, and with...sub-par equipment at best, but recording it was still a stupidly difficult process (SO...MANY...CABLES!!!) and I really didn't want to do it again, so I decided that the quality of my recordings probably wasn't ever going to get any better unless I started putting things out there. Ta-da.

3. Hmm...actually, I've completely forgotten what my third point was going to be.

                              ...EPA?

At any rate, enjoy the cacophony of sound that is my attempt to write and record music.

YES! This is exactly how I feel about my own voice!

But anyways, you did a great job here and I see quite a bit of potential!

I see what you mean about the recording. You still sounded great, though. Now, I'm not exactly a musician or an expert when it comes to music, but I can say that I thought your song was excellent, especially considering the lack of tools you had to work with. I can't wait to see what else you do in the future! Just keep up the great work.

Y'know, for a terrible recording you sounded better than I'll ever be. Singing = not my talent. I can sing lower octave really well, but my vocal cords can't go so high. :silent:

WARNING: Awkward/excessively formal wall of text incoming!

Thank you all so much for the warm reception (at least, I'm fairly certain it's a warm reception, though I don't know--those cookies do look a bit suspicious). As the barrage of disclaimers I packaged with both the original post and the recording itself probably indicated, I was very nervous about putting my voice out there on the interwebs, and I was terrified of whatever reaction it may get. Thankfully, it seems those fears were unwarranted.

I have become tired of writing all of a sudden, so I shall end by saying something completely spontaneous and irrelevant, like, say, "Don't forget garnishes such as fish-shaped crackers, fish-shaped candies, fish-shaped dirt, and sediment-shaped sediment."

(I suppose the wall of text wasn't all that long, was it?)

Okay, I think I'm beginning to understand. When I said "I have become tired of writing", I just meant the post itself was getting a bit long and I didn't feel like adding any more to it, so I just decided to end the post abruptly (after a pointless quote, of course :fox-:):). If anything, this whole experience has convinced me to write and record even more.

That being said, I chose this song specifically because I thought it might be the easiest to record. So the next one might take a bit longer...

Ah. That's makes more sense now. I look forward to your next recording. :fox-:):

Well, I believe you definitely have potential, but I have some comments on your tone, just from singer to singer to help you improve ^^: Well, you definitely know the music, you weren't lost at all from what I could hear, and my only real comment is keeping steady. You seem to fluctuate a bit, and you can miss notes a bit easier when you do this, even though this is a style of singing. If you try and keep your voice steadier, and working on the bigger jumps up or down to a note, you're golden ^^ Accuracy is key! I struggle with it myself many times :3 Keep practicing!!
