what do with no vocal?

so what can ya do if you dont have a chorus? or a vocalist?

do i make them myself?

ask a friend and his girl friend to say some weird shit into the mic and i record it?

google it and dl it from the interwebz?

i want to use a vocal technique for most of my projects... its great if its different, and weird, and no one is doing it.

Re: what do with no vocal?

Is there a reason you can't record yourself saying some weird shit into a microphone? You can also find quite a few old house a capellas on youtube. I also look for promo vinyls from the 80s and 90s which often have a capella sides. I know you aren't looking to remix exactly, but there is a lot of cool stuff out there for cheap/free (legal is another matter, but I'll cross that bridge if I come to it).

Sing it yourself!
It has NEVER been as easy to do it yourself as it is now (cheap mics, cheap pres, audio interfaces, Melodyne/Autotune, etc).

Re: what do with no vocal?

If your looking for something very close to a Diva type of sound your gonna have to either make the lyrics and hire someone or use a sample and try to make it fit by either working around the existing melody or in some cases pitch bending with certain tools like melodyne. You could also you vocaloid type software but its still far from sounding like a professional singer. The word builder from East West sound pretty good but its multiple voices only and As far as a I know the choir doesn't have any more modern sounding options but I could be wrong about that. Might be worth looking into. If you wanna make something a little more glitchy and abstract you could slice and dice and pitchbend samples or record your own voice and put some crazy effects on it. Or even use a text to speech program and through some effects on it if u dopnt want to use your own voice. I hope one day Vocaloid type of software become indistinguishable from real singers. (though they are made often with real singer samples )

You could try picking up a used Roland Aira VT 3. They do a good job, take a listen.

Re: what do with no vocal?

Do {
Get over the fear.
Do it yourself.
Practice.
Get better at it.
}

The above isn't as glib as it first sounds. Its what I do (though the last line in the loop is heavily open to opinion ).

Ah... Be safe

Oh, not sure if its been mentioned but I believe there are some services online where you send them the music and they will sing it. It might be worth finding a vocal buddy that you gel with that has their own equipment and can just send you their vocals over the internet.

Re: what do with no vocal?

DIY is good practice on multiple levels, so I have to agree with that common theme. The only part that sucks is finding the proper time / isolation required so nobody can hear you failing miserably. It makes you feel dirty in a way (if you're as easily embarrassed as I am about something so personal as your own voice being recorded for musical purposes), so I don't do it as much either.

Same here..even though I won a medal for trad singing when I was 14. It's something I know I can do well and love doing, but just hate how singing in public makes me feel. Wish it were different, but it's something I still haven't managed to take control of after all these yeas..and I seriously doubt I ever will at this stage.
