In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Synchro Arts, you can see how I use a rough vocal I recorded with alternate phrasing as a guide to re-process the original vocal sung by someone else. The result is a new vocal part, with the original signer, singing my new melody and phrasing. If this isn’t magic, then I don’t know what is!
Part of the creative process is changing your mind. It’s not uncommon to come up with alternate ideas once a part has been recorded. But what happens if the talent you are recording is not available to re-record alternate ideas?
I found myself in this situation recently while working on an original song. The lead vocal was recorded by a colleague on the other side of the continent. His singing sounded great, but I wanted to try some alternate phrasing with a few different melody notes on a particular line in the second verse.
Enter Revoice Pro 4 from Synchro Arts. The Audio Performance Transfer (APT) is the perfect tool for this situation. It is used to transfer pitch and/or timing from one vocal recording to another. Even if it is a different singer!
So, I re-recorded the alternate phrasing myself. I am no singer, but I was able to get the idea recorded. In this video, made with the support of Synchro Arts, you can see how I use my rough vocal as a guide to re-process the original vocal. The result is a new vocal part, with the original signer, singing my new melody and phrasing. If this isn’t magic, then I don’t know what is!
