New singer, trying to master dynamics. Help Hilfe Aidez moi 助けて

Hello everyone.

So, I'm in a bit of a situation. TLDR version available at the bottom if you don't want to read a wall of text. Anyways, I've been trying to sing Ayano's theory of happiness the past few weeks and I've been frustrated at the dyanmics and my stupid voice. Since this song seems to require a range of notes, I've been trying to sing the softer parts louder to be audible and the loud parts softer to prevent distortion. Problem is I can't sing the high notes softly because I need that extra burst of emotion to hit the actual key. After fumbling around a bit, the final product I put together sounds like some frankenstein's kronenberg patchwork.

Could you guys give me advice? If you want to listen to it, email me (lavendarsix@gmail.com) because I'm going to commit sodoku if this ever gets out in public.

Thanks!

TLDR: Need help controlling voice dynamics.

You could try working on your head or mixed register if you want to hit high notes softly.

Try asking for help in the Youtaite Inn discord server, you'll probably get more help there.


Also the way you say 助けて sounds as if you're about to get mugged. 手伝いしてください is more what you're looking for :^)

You can use the compressor in your DAW to "even out" the loud and quiet parts!  By using the compressor, you boost the quieter signals (your softer parts) and decrease the signals of the louder parts.  There are quite a few tutorials on Youtube and just generally on the web to help you with how to use the compressor!  Hopefully this helps a little!

I've been using Chris' dynamic compressor pluggin in audacity and the thing is it also boosts the background sound on the quieter parts. Will try tinkering with it more though, thanks o7
