Music and the creation of pleasant sound is something that is an art by itself. Be it instruments, or the human voice the topic deserves a track all to itself - and is also a space that is still quite nascent in a country like India.
We are looking for topics around ... songwriting, managing and promoting your own band, musical instruments (there are some pretty cool things happening with tech there), discussions around music genre, sound engineering, discussions for and with audiophiles - even a bit around sound mixing or synthesizing and sound production (though a bit of the last one will come in sound engineering).
We’d also imagine you’ll have topics and conversations to share around singing lessons (maybe your experience with it - and if you figured out if you have the winning voice), discussions around music education, the impact of music on the soul and person, or even if you want to start a debate on different genres or styles of music.
If you have some insights around any of these, are would consider yourself an expert - or want to moderate a session (and invite some experts) please do.
The Role of Effects in Voice Production & Performance
The idea is basically imparting knowledge on the role and usage of effects in adding dynamics to voice. This ranges from singers to voice-over artists to production engineers.
Effects play a huge role in today’s music industry as it adds flavour and a different dimension to voice. most musicians often overlook this aspect though 90% of their favourite musicians use effects in their audio production to add dynamics to their vocals. Sometimes, the effects are so subtle that we hardly notice but plays a vital role in the production and mixing of vocals. I would like to share my knowledge on the same.
a Notepad should do.
My name is Siva SBK and I have been an active musician in the Chennai music circuit associated with various bands. I am a singer/song-writer. I have a huge passion for singing and also doing things that stand-out from the ordinary and regular. In that line of thought, adding dynamics to my vocals have always been an interest and I started exploring this area a few years ago. I went on to learn music production from various engineers and sources and also acquriing the required gear to do the same. I will be using a TC-Helicon VoiceLive Touch 2 to demonstrate this topic though the same concepts can be applied with various other plugins as well.
