Hey there, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get around to this. So, your review:

Mixing -
The timing of your vocal track is ahead of the instrumental. It's less than a second off, but still noticeable. Other than that, the volume levels of each track work well with each other and do not sound like they are competing with each other.

Vocals -

I enjoyed your chorus the most, as well as your harmonies. However the verse was rather choppy. I know that the boys place heavy emphasis on each syllable, but if you listen to the doubles, they are elongated and flow into each other. It makes it sound connected, instead of disjoined, and is easier on the ears. As for your rap, it was decent. You stumbled and slurred a bit. Maybe adding a bit more attitude would have done it.

Sorry, I just got my internet working T.T

Here's your review~

Vocals:
First off, I think you did really well in this cover. However, I did find myself thinking that you were singing too powerfully? I wouldn't call it power, but it isn't harsh either. This song requires a more softer tone than the usual f(x) song. Most of the time I would recommend one to sing from their diaphragm, but to get that softer tone you need to use more air and you don't need to use as much control as you would if you were singing a ballad. Think of the obsession JYP has with 50% air 50% vocal technique, if you didn't understand everything I just said, cause that is what I was getting at. Apart from that, vocally you were great. As for your rap, you said it a tad faster than the original, but it's not something that you should be too bothered about.

Mixing:
AHHH vocal removed T.T It can't be helped though, as it isn't the title song. Did you make the instrumental yourself? If you did, then focus on highlighting only the sections where vocals are. That way it's easier to listen to, but you'll have to play around with volume levels to get it sounding right.
Other than the instrumental issue, you have your reverb up too high. And, that's about it. Your timing and harmonies (got kind of confused at times if you did your own because of the vocals that weren't removed) were really good.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.

Sorry for taking so long to review this. I haven't gotten around to anything since my trip overseas. Anyway..

Atlantis Princess:
Your voice sounds lovely in this cover. It really suits you. You just had a few timing issues where you sung ahead. I honestly wish there was a good enough instrumental. If you do find one, I suggest doing a full cover of it.

Let's Walk A Little:
This cover was done pretty well. Just a few pointers: 1) try not to imitate the vocal style of the original artist. I honestly think your natural singing voice would have brought something different and beautiful to this cover, rather than the imitation you attempted. 2) Over-enunciate words. It may sound silly, but it makes your voice sound clearer and not so muddle up.

If you can't find a decent instrumental, how about trying is a cappella? It takes a few more tries to get everything on pitch, yet there's something wonderful about that singing style. As for song suggestions, your voice reminds me of Baek Ah Yeon, so maybe try out one of her songs. If you want something more along the lines of girl groups, I'd suggest Secret or Kara. The cute/lovely style of KPOP is usually suitable to thin voices. But if you venture out of the immediate KPOP scene you will find some rather unique vocal styles. Especially in the indie scene, for example Standing Egg. So, have a try of Baek Ah Yeon, Secret, Kara, Standing Egg and even Juniel.

I'm more than happy to review these. I'll just say this now, since it was a common factor in each song: there is a buzzing in all your songs. Have you tried a noise removal or simply reducing the volume in the parts where you don't sing? Also, try and add a pop filter effect on your audio tracks if you don't have access to an actual pop filter. It'll reduce the heavy "p", "t" and "b" sound. Words that have an emphasis on those letters use more air on those syllables, therefore a lot of air hits the mic at one go cause a "pop" type of sound.

Atlantis Princess:
Mixing wise, this just needed your instrumental to be slightly louder. As for your vocals, I can see you focused on executing those notes, which resulted in a cover that lacked a bit in emotion. It was good seeing you make some changes from the original and take your own spin on the vocal melody as it did your voice justice. Just watch out on pronunciation, there was a bit of slurring in amongst the syllables, especially those with "s". In the second verse, the guitar had a more definite strum, and I felt that you should have been vocally stronger in that section; maybe by supporting your diaphragm more and using less air in your voice.

Sad Song:
This song was not too low for you, but I can tell you struggled with those low notes. I mentioned before about singing from your diaphragm, right? You were singing from your throat not your stomach. For lower notes you need more air and more support on your diaphragm. Singing from your throat is a vocal technique usually known as the "head voice" or falsetto range, but to be constantly using your throat to sing will cause stress on your vocal chords.
Another thing to point out in this cover is that you're singing too close to the mic and it started to cause a distortion. Try and understand the relationship between vocal and microphone. For lower notes or notes that are airy, you need to hold the mic closer to your mouth. However, higher notes and bolder vocal techniques you need to have a distance between the mic and your mouth. The distance, on the other hand, depends on how powerful your voice is.

The Manual:
You started off a bit shaky, but it got better as the song went on. Overall, you were slightly flat, but it didn't effect the cover (after all, you are only human). This cover would have sounded way better with doubles and harmonies. The cover sounded empty without them and using them can be used to cover up "mistakes". There were a lot of changes between high and low notes, and some didn't progress naturally. Try practicing a bit more between the changes. It's something difficult for every vocalist. And lastly, you stumbled across the first line of each new section. Maybe tapping your foot or finger as you sing to keep you in time so you won't miss when to come in.

Hi there! :jumpy: Thank you for much for your comments. I really tried to breath in with my diaphragm when singing, but it was so hard to change. It makes my voice sound less throaty, but I cannot reach higher notes singing like this :(. Do you mind telling me what you think of this cover please? This was like a one-off attempt, so I paid less attention to pronunciation and mic adjustment :opps: .

:aww: It's alright, habits are hard to change, but with a bit of practice I know you'll be able to do it.

I actually really like this cover. You're voice sounds really pretty, suits the feeling of the song. It was stable throughout the entire song, with minor off-notes. However, taking into account that your vocal range is higher than the song, it was bound to happen. I do it myself when a song is too low and an english word comes up. Try AKMU's 200%

(original~> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aaBRup2Ge00)


Okay, I listened to both these covers honestly, and left their respected comments in the comments of the respected video as well. Here we go~

Red Velvet - Happiness:

Out of the two covers you sent me, this one was better. Compared to the original song, your vocals are much more mature and the way you embraced your vocal tone was advantageous to the song. I felt that if you were to imitate the original "aegyo" vocal style, it would have sounded awkward. Although I found you vocally strong, your harmonies need a bit more practice. The low harmonies were too loud in the "la la la" part making the overall section sound flat, and it also lost the upbeat attitude you had prior to the course. Also, the harmonies over the rap sections were off pitch. Your lower harmonies seem a lot weaker than the higher harmonies. Harmonising with your own voice is a lot harder than harmonising with someone else. So, all you can really do is practice more on harmonies. Your vocals and rap have already got a strong foundation that getting your harmonies down will also help expand your vocal range.

Lee Hi - Am I Strange:

This cover has more criticism than the other. To start, the ad-lib during the intro was flat. As it is the introduction of the song, if you start off off-key/pitch you lose interest in the listener or you've already given them a negative expectation of your cover. I previously mentioned that you have a strong foundation in your vocal technique, you just need to learn how to control it. Once you learn how to control your voice you will prevent notes from going off. Listening to Hayi's version and your cover the distinct difference is that you used too much power in your voice. Hayi refrains from using power, as though she's on the edge of crying as she tries to pour out her emotions, questioning "why am I strange to you when we're the 'same'?" You need to use more air in your voice and know which syllables to bring out as a whisper to sound as if you're on the verge of breaking or belittling yourself.

Some things to consider include;
- knowing when to use your head voice and when to use your diaphragm
- how much air is needed for a note
- the ratio between emotion and vocal
- when a harmony is needed
- how to use an effect on your vocal for the benefit of the cover (e.g. how much reverb, do you need echo, how necessary is auto tune, etc.)

omgg it's actually what I need to hear!! :xin:
people around me always says that I'm good at it and all but I know I lack in sooo many things like in controlling my breath (cause I don't exercise and got a little prob in my right nose), in handling long notes, in using my diaphragm (I don't even know how to do it and what the heaven is that) and my mixing is totally a mess ._.

ah and about using the diaphragm would you mind to explain me a little bout it? I watched videos on youtube about it but still hard for me to understand.... ._.

Okay, so the diaphragm is the muscle under the lungs (the one that spasms when you get hiccups), and it controls your breathing. Diaphragmatic breathing will help expand your lung capacity as well as enhance your ability to control it. When you breath normally, all the air isn't pushed out of your lungs, but you are able to if you put pressure on your diaphragm. If you take a deep breath and push down on the area under your ribs you'll notice that the air comes out faster and stronger than a normal breath. However, this is the action you need to use when singing, allowing your body to naturally do it without the assistance of pressure by your hands to squeeze out that last bit of air.

A simple breathing exercise that may help you control the amount of air you inhale and exhale is:
1) breathe in to the count of 4
2) hold it for a count of 4
3) and, exhale to the count of 4

* Note that when you exhale you should be attempting to push out all the air in your lungs to the number of counts

Do it to the count of 4 three times and increase it to the count of 8, and when you gain more confidence try it to 12 and 16.

Another is taking in a deep breath and forcing it all out at once.

If you need me to explain it better or want another suggestion feel free to ask.

The cover is good, your voice is just slightly flat. The way you strum in consistent throughout the cover. However, it should be softer in the verses and get louder at the chorus. You were strumming too loud throughout the song and your voice was trying to compete with it. Also, because you were both singing and playing, you're not as good as you are as doing just one of them alone. Your trills and higher notes suffered and could have been changed to suit the acoustic cover. As there isn't much depth and you're not playing it how the original song goes, you had room to adjust it and make it your own.

Hurtful: https://app.box.com/s/lca9nk3zryfogphk7za1
False Hope: https://app.box.com/s/6yckkka2vx5xwhu7bdwo


Hurtful - Shin Ji Hoon:

The cover started off lovely. You were right about having the thin youthful voice for it. This showed specifically in the verses. However, the chorus you struggled to reach it's pitch. Although the artist does have a thin voice, she uses it with power. It'll just take a bit more practice to perfect your technique. I heard you stumble over your words a few times. It could be because of this that you didn't sing at your full potential. Using a vocal removal (VR) makes it harder to blend your voice in it. I found this the key problem. Adding some reverb onto the raw vocal tracks could have helped it a bit, but not entirely. It's already tricky enough using a VR and reverb can go terribly wrong if over used; it may sound as though you're singing karaoke. Your microphone pics up a lot of noise. Using a noise removal for the fuzzy tone and a pop filter for those moments when you've bumped the mic or breathed too heavily into it could be reduced with these effects.


False Hope - Song Jieun:

The instrumental was too low for you. If you find it difficult to reach those lower notes, you can always change the pitch of the instrumental to make it comfortable for you. The pitch effected your vocal performance in terms of emotion and stability. Your trill was flat. It's not noticeable, but the trill is disjointed notes and that stops it from sounding flat. Watch her lives and you'll hear it.


If you want to try more artists with thin voices, I'd try Yeeun (wonder girls) and Juniel.

thanks!


Mixing:

There were slight issues with the mixing. The instrumental was slightly too loud in the verses and it interfered with the vocal track. However, the vocals drowned out the instrumental in the chorus. You just need to adjust the volume. The vocal track doesn't sound like it's blending in with the instrumental. At the moment the two sound like they're competing. A bit of reverb and echo makes the vocals fold into the track and sound fuller.

Vocals:

Overall, the cover was lacking emotion. Although you focused on the singing it like the original song, your voice was slightly flat and shaky. Your head voice and harmonies need more practice, it'll help you achieve those higher notes in the chorus without going off key. For those shaky notes, you can try taking deeper breaths more frequently. As the song is quite challenging you did a relatively good job. Good luck!

And my singing in general? I really want to know things that I should improve on. Thank you very very much. <3

Also, I'm a bad mixer so can you give me some tips on how to do it properly?
Thank you very very much :aww:
