    There Was a Girl...

    A little song I wrote and sung for the anniversary of the first time I contacted the girl who became my wife...

    Thanks, those voices are all me. I'm getting the hang of this recording multiple voices lark.

    What software did you use?

    I thought your recording was great. A bit of a surprise when you added the additional parts.

    Haha. But I get bothered by the professional singers doing this. I know it is 'convenient' for them but the removal of variety of voices gets monotonous.

    A bit of variance would be to apply a tone altering algorithm -- or speed up/slowdown the sound. There are also some of the pitch correction tools -- but that probably doesn't achieve the variance in sound that is helpful.

    Anyhow, this wasn't to detract from what you've done; it just got me reflecting on a few ideas.

    I used Audacity for the recording and editing/after effects, and an old semipro mic attached to an external sound card borrowed form my brother in law (the mic is positioned inside a scrunched up piece of acoustic foam in a cubic shelf space behind a homemade pop filter (bit of nylon from an old stocking stretched across a sewing ring)). I tried shifting the pitch up and down with software, it just makes it sound really fake and poor quality.

    Good job, Ben. You have really good harmony with yourself.

    Says MelMak, who has done the same thing over the years, singing along with himself.
