    Hi everyone! Iím sorry Iím new to the forum and Iím not sure if Iím doing everything right and I wonít be banned in the end cuz Iím posting this second time. I need to get urgently a detailed enough feedback but Iím not allowed to post links yet. Anyone can help me with that? I need to put 2 certain songs, not just to tell my nickname on SoundCloud . How could I post my 2 songs here and get a feedback. (Timing, pitch, range, vocals specificities etc.)

    The simplest is to stick it on Soundcloud and give us working search criteria - that's what most people do. If you really cannot do this, then send me a message with the links, and I will add them to this topic as I can post links. It's rare here for people to get banned unless they break the rules or just wind people up.

    HOWEVER - what will happen is that people will be honest. Constructive feedback involves highlighting errors. We try to do it nicely, but it will expose your real level of achievement. Expect comments that say the guitar was out of tune, the voice is really uncontrolled/thin/warbly/or just plain bad. They won't be nasty, but they WILL be truthful. The tone of your post sounds almost desperate for a response, so make sure you can take the stuff that comes back.

    Often - if you highlight the weak areas you already know about, and ask specific questions it helps people. For instance, if the vocal is merely there as a demo, for somebody else to sing and replace, people understand that. I sing, and I don't get offended when one of our tracks ends up with my voice replaced by one off the other guys - he can obviously do my part better - that's cool. If you are asking for a specific reason - tell us that too. As in, my friends say I have a great voice but somebody has told me that I sound awful - are they right? Remember that responses here are usually honest, and made to strangers with no axe to grind. Send me the links. R

    Post just the soundcloud share link without the https:// part in front. That should escape the link check.

    Nice voice.

    I didn't listen to every track from beginning to end, but quick thoughts:

    Some pitch issues here and there, and some of it sounds like you're right on top of the mic without the best technique, or it needs a fair amount of editing - breath sounds and plosives are more noticeable than I'd want in a finished track.

    I don't know how/where you recorded them but maybe a good pop filter and just step back from the mic a tiny bit. And maybe the breathiness is intended, since I heard hints of a fuller voice in there, but it sounded a little like it lacked support (my non-vocalist guess).

    I sure would keep singing with what you demo'd here! Thanks.

    Well, the simplest thing to do is to just turn your head slightly when you take those big inhales, and as I suggested, experiment with controlling the distance a bit so you only get close to the mic on those small/intimate parts, and that's where you really have to watch it.

    Of course, a lot of that can be fixed with editing, but you don't want to make the mixing person crazy having to automate every single breath. Cutting them out or using a gate is very hard to do and still end up with a natural sounding vocal track IMO. And, again IMO, there's going to almost always need to be some editing when you capture an up close vocal like much of what you demo here. Just try to minimize that by using distance and angle to the mic, much as you would for a loud part. It's just something to become aware of and practice, really.

    Compression done without any editing (or perhaps done wrong) can make it sound worse, too.
