Sooo...this is my first crack at adding vocals to my work. I realize that alot needs to change, but would like to know what those are. I know my voice is not great, but I'm working on that as well.

Any tips or tricks I could try would greatly appreciated!

Lyrics:

Become The Change

Take it, take it all!
Get out from where you stand...
With one foot in the grave!
(Can you...)

Break it, break it down!
Into pieces too small...
To ever be the same!
(Don't be afraid...)

Of fall, of falling down
Or being pulled down
When you're left for dead, just know
That you're bound to rise again

If it's all the same...
Just detonate
Open your thoughts; your eyes...
Become the change!

Look down; further down
Do you see inside yourself
Are you all you thought you'd be?

Change it; change it now
Everything that you know
Is the light to help you see!
(Don't be afraid...)

Of fall, of falling down
Or being pulled down
When you're left for dead, just know
That you're bound to rise again

If it's all the same...
Just detonate
Open your thoughts; your eyes...
Become the change!

Feel it inside
Bring it to life
You'll find that now
You've somehow

Found the key to it all...
So don't be afraid!

Of fall, of falling down
Or being pulled down
When you're left for dead, just know
That you're bound to rise again

If it's all the same...
Just detonate
Open your thoughts; your eyes...
Become the change!

Nice job man. The vocals on this song make it sound amazing. Btw Are you still in your band?

I do like this as a concept, and your voice itself actually doesn't need to change at all IMO. I think the only thing that needs to change is the mixing. I'll try to give you what advice I can:

From looking at the waveform, it looks like your voice peaks over the rest of the mix, I think that might be what's making it sound like it's "on top" of the rest of the music. Run the vocal track through a Hard Limiter set to about -2db (Audacity has a built in limiter plugin if your DAW doesn't have one).

Now idk exactly what it'll sound like after, so if the vocals still don't blend well, try to experiment with different Reverb or Delay effects, a little bit can go a long way.

Feel free to PM me if you need any help, I always like a challenging mix :D

This might be the best review I’ve ever gotten so far! In terms of constructive and helpful feedback. Thank you so much for the advice and encouragement. There’s a couple spots I plan in re-recording to better my voice and add a couple elements, and I’ll definitely try out the hard limiter like you suggested! If I have trouble I’ll definitely PM you.

Thanks so much again!
