“Effects are sounds that are not connected to melody or text but are sounds that underline the expression or style of a singer. All effects are produced in the vocal tract. Besides controlling the technique for the effects singers have to take into account her/his fitness, energy level, and temperament.
Before you start working with effects, it is important that you can control the three overall principles, the chosen mode, and the sound colour.”
Effects might be:
- Riffs and runs
- Vocal flips/breaks
For sound examples and instructions towards a better understanding of what the effects are and how to work with them in a healthy way, visit: Complete Vocal Technique or download the CVT App.
