Today's big discovery is that the figure 8 pattern on my AKG C12a, inside my tiny Whisperroom, with my voice, and a healthy reduction of 500Hz (somewhat wide) and a reduction of 200Hz (fairly narrow) is what's needed for me.
That, and some Autotune. Look. I'm not proud. Sometimes I'm sharp, sometimes I'm flat. And no, it's not set to be terribly aggressive with that vocoded "I'm a 16-year-old-pop-star" sound. But it do make my notes more in tune. And it's either autotune or me sitting and doing it manually* and you know that's no fun.
I really liked Frente. I actually saw them opening for They Might Be Giants in Philadelphia sometime... back in the olden days.
*Or practicing, and you know that's not going to happen.
