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?

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

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
