Recommended Posts

Join the Fabul Men's Choir!

I am looking for a group of singing badasses to help out with a choir part on an upcoming mix. If you are interested in lending your amazing skills, please PM me or respond in here.

It's a group choir sound, and the part is really easy. :-D

Alas, I am without equipment or else I would be very much available to participate. I do sound pretty awesome in the shower. Just kidding. I hardly sing in there. However, I have a bunch of choir experience. >_<

I'm without equipment until August (the school's stuff opens up to me then). If you need a tenor really badly, I'll try to get something better than my headset up and running at home for you -- lemme know!

I don't have anything but Audacity and a crappy microphone until school starts back up (also I haven't been practicing much this summer unless Rock Band counts, which it doesn't), but I'm a quasi-bass baritone, good for a couple ledger lines on either end of the bass clef.

i am your man, i have both recording and choir singing experience.

i'm a lower end baritone.

I'm also a lower end baritone with plenty of choir experience.

I kinda need a pre-amp for my brother's mic, though >.>

I'd be very interested, though all I have is Audacity and a Shure SM57 plugged in through my laptop's mic jack. I have a little bit of choir experience. I can do either tenor or baritone.

How are you going to get everyone timbre to match over the internet? Singing in a choir is different than singing solo, as I'm sure you already know.

thanks for the interest everyone; yes it is for the FF4 project.

Sound quality doesn't have to be beautifully pristine, as it is going to be a large number of singers. I can effectively clean individual tracks in a way that wouldn't be possible for solo parts.

I'll be sending out lyrics and guide tracks later tonight, so be sure to keep an eye on your PM boxes.

well, it's more a question of vowels...rounding out the vowels will help create a more uniform blend. the other thing would be to have less vibrato and more straight tone. certain consonants will also have to be indicated when they're cut off and etc...i could probably create something to help with this depending on what's needed in terms of "lyrics". OA, hit me up, i do have experience in choral writing and can help weed out any problems that may arise.

Oh great, I hadn't really thought of this. I've got absolutely no experience recording vocals when the singers aren't all together (actually, I've got no experience recording anyone but myself, but anyway). Should we stress consonants the "normal" way to do it in a choral setting, or what?

For those of you who don't know, it's typical to "overact" a little on consonants because of the timbre of a choir's sound and the tendency of things to get muddled really easily by other voices and by the local reverb. We're not going to be singing in a hall and we're probably going to be equalized anyway, but what exactly does that change in terms of stress?

And I guess we won't know until we see the music (which, if I'm guessing the track right, is a bunch of ahs anyway), but Latin vowels?

EDIT: First questions directed at Hemo; last one directed at OA.
