I don't use vox too often but the best result came from my roommate singing a top 40 worthy booty hook on the spot into a walmart auto tune box. I also use little vocal blips now and then, usually chopping from recordings I take around the house. It's fun!
Beg, steal, borrow, torrent, rip, clone, mug, newsgroup, peer to peer, perform, collaborate, record any and every vocal sample you ever find and store it in a folder with key and bpm info. Name it with keywords then just build and build that library. Screw copyright while your unsigned that can be figured out once you get a licenced track on the go. The point is to show people what you can do. Think of each audio segment as a brush hitting the canvas, go and EXPLORE YOUR MUSE !:victory:
A lot of independent, acapella vocalists promote themselves on Soundcloud, seeking collaborations. My friend and I had a lot of fun recording her vocals last week for a track. She wrote the lyrics too. Beautiful, creative lyrics. Gorgeous vibrato too.
She is now marketing herself as a vocalist on Soundcloud and Facebook.
i pull all my vocal work from various sources. the majority of my sampling comes from movies i've collected over the years. however recently i have expanded to commercials and tv shows. since i am developing my concept and sound, my style is slowly changing to adapt. its fun and i think others will like the work i'm doing.
