Crickets
 
I need help with my crickets (or frog) vocals... I can get the basic sound pretty damn good but I am having trouble getting it deeper. Any suggestions?

seraphic 2005-04-21 04:27

I just found another thread about this which had been closed... why? To help that dude out, you breath in as you do it.

andrewc 2005-04-21 04:48

because it's a silly newbish thread that powers didn't see fit to operate. so he closed. and any bets this one will be closed too. PM the other thread-starting guy next time.

Ha ha ha, you made a thread, then searched.

WTF? So there really is a frog vocal?:p:p:p Growling from breathing in? I've never even heard of that.....

brainsforbreakfast 2005-04-21 10:30

I imagine it must sound very silly.

check out some lord worm era cryptopsy, he does quite a few like that

powersofterror 2005-04-21 17:56

I'm not into that stuff. I'm more of a thrasher.

seraphic 2005-04-22 02:39

Yes, its a real vocal style - and I need help on getting mine deeper! For those that havnt ever heard it I just did some then uploaded it, the link is at the bottom. It sounds shit coz I did it with my shitty computer mic, with a sm58 or something it sounds way more brutal.

https://toolbox.iprimus.com.au/appl...5Ccricket%2Emp3 -- If that doesnt work let me know and I'll try a different approach.

seraphic 2005-04-22 03:51

OK it seems I screwed that link up, heres another try - https://toolbox.iprimus.com.au/appl...5Ccricket%2Emp3

let me know if that one fails too.

cheers

I saw no reason for the other thread to be closed. Perfectly legit question which hadn't been asked or stated before and you closed it.

powersofterror 2005-04-23 13:47

Then that's my mistake--cause I thought it was stupid question, no one would know the answer, and it was silly in the first place. This one is open, and it's the same question. Happy?

The Doctor 2005-04-24 02:24

other than that we are superiour to all you post-whores, mwuhahaha.

anway, the second link is dead too.

seraphic 2005-04-24 03:10

Anyone know how I can post the link to the cricket? I have 20meg free webspace with my ISP and I hosted it with that, but cant seem to get it up :(

Just incase it doesnt work, some bands that do alot of it are Born Headless and Corpse Carving. Psycroptic do a little bit of it too - though its hard to know what it is until you know what you're listening for.

Do you mean stuff like Demilich?

No, he's talking about that croak style vox from bands like putrid pile, and Dyscrasia. If you can do normal guttural vox, then you can probably do the cricket vocals, but I dont know why people do them so much, they sound stupid when they're over used.

Exenterate999 2005-04-24 18:56

I can do normal gutteral screams, but i cant get this cricket thing at all, i know what to listen for, and have heard them, but i have no idea at all how to do them, lol, ive tryed plenty of things to, could somebody elaborate?

powersofterror 2005-04-25 09:32

17 replies and you still can't figure it out?
Either nobody knows--as we have already implicated, or nobody cares. Both of those sound right to me, so maybe try another site that has a vocal zone....

The basic technique I use to get my frog/cricket vocals is to get the sides of my gums to flap because of all the air coming out... Or you can do them the lame ass super quiet falsetto way, but you'll need a compressor for that to be able to hear it, if you do normal loud vocals too.

Exenterate999 2005-04-25 21:21

Hey man, thanks! Somebody whos actuallty helpful here, haha, seriouslly though i really appreciate it, i can do that falsetto way, but like you said its real weak, ill see what i can do with the gear i got, and work on it, thanks!
