Hello GMC! smile.gif

A while back I started a satirical series in metal production done "the right way". I am basically making a joke of it all; though many of you know metal is my favorite genre. It's been years since I have active on YouTube, and so this series gives me something to do. It seems a few people have enjoyed it already. This video embedded below is my third video in the series, and it covers scream techniques. They are (1) Goblin, (2) Demon, (3) Cookie Monster, and (4) Minotaur.

Please do not actually practice these techniques, as they are intentionally wrong. I had to drink a lot of water during filming. wink.gif



The previous videos can be found in this playlist.
The first one talked about chugging/djent guitars. The second covered tracking guitar and bass, and "mixing". biggrin.gif I have plans for further mix and master videos. What I have envisioned is hilarious; i.e. red lights mean METAL, and never mix in mono. tongue.gif

In case anyone might wonder, my mic I used is the AKG Perception 420. I had it set to the standard cardioid setting. I might try setting it to omnidirectional next time since I kept turning my head from the mic. That just meant more post production volume balancing. smile.gif Then again, my bedroom has echo. (And since this is a joke video, I didn't film in the closet as I normally would record in - the best place I have now.)

This is honestly my old self coming alive again. Some of you may remember from the past. smile.gif

WELL DONE!! is that really your voice? It almost sounds like you have an octave pedal on your vocals? I didn't know your voice was that deep and huge. And honestly, you could sing for ANY Death/Thrash/Core/Djent band on EARTH with those pipes!!!!

Haha no my real voice can be heard at the end - the blooper section. The other parts are pitch shifted down 4 semitones for silliness. I think I have unintentionally fooled a few people so far. But the purpose was to add to the humor. tongue.gif

Thanks for commenting men. smile.gif
