Sing Harmony With Yourself – Learn How to Record Your Voice on Your PC and Sing Along With It!

Have you ever ever been singing a music by your self, and you may simply hear the harmonies that have been “supposed” to be there however weren’t? Each time I sing Take It Straightforward, by The Eagles, I get to the refrain and simply need to think about that I’ve Don Henley and Timothy B. Schmidt standing beside me. With out the vocal harmonies, the music simply would not have the identical punch, the identical magic.

Think about making an attempt to carry out Kansas’ Carry On Wayward Son, solo! I do not assume so. The identical holds true for Bohemian Rhapsody, by Queen. There are particular songs that simply can not or shouldn’t be carried out with out these magical vocals. So what on this planet do you do about it should you’re a solo performer?

Properly, for reside performances, you are just about caught with having to get a number of different singers for the harmonies. Truly, relying on how technically savvy you might be, there are little machines that may break up your voice up and play it again as harmonies, however that is one other factor for one more article. And belief me, it’s a big ache to get first rate outcomes. Sure, I’ve tried it; no, I do not do it anymore;).

Nevertheless, you’ll be able to report your self singing harmonies with your self (yourselves?), proper now if you wish to, with instruments you in all probability have across the residence. So long as you’ve got a PC with a soundcard, an mp3 participant, and a few kind of microphone. These little $4.00 PC mics are simply wonderful to begin….no actually, I am critical. You probably have the stuff I discussed, and also you wish to do this out proper now, all it’s essential do is obtain the open-source audio program referred to as Audacity from their Sourceforge web site on the interwebs.

The rationale I stated you want an mp3 participant is for the headphones or earbuds, not the participant itself. Plug these headphones into the inexperienced (usually) gap in your PC’s soundcard. (“gap” = “jack” should you insist on utilizing technical phrases). You’ll have to unplug the audio system first, which is okay. Then plug the microphone into the pink gap…I imply….jack within the soundcard.

You simply have to arrange a few issues within the software program earlier than you begin. Open Audacity and go to Edit/Preferences to open the Audacity Preferences window. Put a tick within the field subsequent to “Play different tracks whereas recording new one.” Then click on “OK.” Subsequent, go into the “Sounds and Gadgets” window from the Management Panel in Home windows. The icon appears like a gray speaker. Go to the tab marked “Audio,” and within the part referred to as “Sound recording,” click on on the “quantity” button. That may deliver up the Home windows Mixer.” Discover the channel that claims “Stereo Combine” or “Wav Out” (will depend on what soundcard you’ve got), and put a tick within the “Mute” field on that channel. Simply shut the Home windows Mixer and also you’re able to rock!

Document the melody by urgent button in audacity with the large purple dot on it. An audio “monitor” will seem as if by magic. Begin singing into the microphone. If you’re accomplished, click on the button in Audacity with the large yellow sq. (that means “cease”). Return to the beginning of the music by clicking on the button in Audacity with the double purple arrows pointing to the left. Now you’ll be able to add a concord by merely urgent the purple dot button once more and singing alongside together with your recorded voice on the primary monitor. Do that as many occasions as you wish to (there is no such thing as a sensible restrict in Audacity), for 3-part or 4-part concord. Heck, flip your self right into a choir. I as soon as turned myself into an abbey of chanting monks!

That is all there may be to it. You simply sang concord with your self and did not spend a dime! There are many issues you are able to do to enhance the sound when you’re accomplished, reminiscent of cut back the noise, pan the voices left and proper, and so on. In the event you’re eager about studying about these, and tons of different nice stuff you are able to do with that recording-studio-you-didn’t-know-you-had, try our tutorials on the Residence Brew Audio web site.
