voice / pitch processers
 
Is anyone using a pitch correcter live or in the studio??? I saw the new digitech vocalist vl3d and thought it might solve my "pitchyness" Any help would be great.

I would invest money in seeing a vocal instructor instead. Those, IMO, are more for R&B and rappers who sing and wanna get that Kanye West or T-Pain sound. They achieve that by purposefully singing bad and using a pitch corrector and that gives them that digitized voice sound, at least, that's one way of doing it.

Kanye and T-pain got it from Zapp and Rodger.

I think Ax has a good point.

When you do get lessons, you'll learn proper breathing techniques and breath support which would probably help you maintain your pitch.

The old fashioned way is the best way. Practice your scales and arpeggios. Learn to match the pitch of the instrument or tape your practicing with. Feel your throat does it close up? Relax it. The less tense you are the easier it will be to reach your desired pitch. Remember to warm up properly. If you dont your vocal chords will not be properly stretched and it will be much more difficult to hit notes. I like to start in the middle of my range and do chromatic runs up and down from that starting note. Maybe start with a half octave each way and increase from there. Also take care of your throat, lay off soda's, coffee, dont hang around smokers, leave the sugary foods alone, get plenty of rest and if you think youve drunk enough water drink twice that. A good cup of "throat coat" tea before a show will do wonders.

It's by using "Auto-tune" and setting it to just directly hit notes and not allow any sliding up or down to notes. That's how it gets that creepy sound. You can still sing it good, but your are just over-using it.

My personal opinion (and this is just my opinion) just keep practicing or if you need to, take vocal lessons. It's better to learn how to sing better than to use studio stuff (basically so you can sing in a live situation too).

Practice makes perfect! SO PRACTICE! :lol:
