Can Vocal Software Cure Everyone Who Sings Off Pitch?
Everyone sings off pitch though people have varying degrees of admission to this problem. Some professional singers who have been earning their bread and butter by singing on stage for years assume they need not deal with such a basic issue as intonation. There are those who are simply happy to sing in a community choir, know they can carry a tune at least decently, and do not think to carefully about pitch. There are those who simply do not sing because they know they cannot match pitch. But the truth is that all of these singers and also singers of every level in between sings off pitch, ranging from “painful” to a little “oops” here and there. The difference between these two depends on merely how far off pitch one sings, and for how long they remain off the target pitch.
The good news is that it is now easy to find and solve your individual intonation problems with voice singing software. The first problem is that many singers do not realize they have pitch issues. This is because your voice is different inside your head than it sounds to those around you. The acoustics of a hall or studio can change the way you hear yourself. Also various factors within your body can affect your ability to match pitch on any given day–i.e. whether or not you are healthy, what you have eaten recently, if you are tired, etc. So the bottom line is that unless you have an objective measuring device provided by voice software for singing, you cannot know whether you are singing on or off pitch.
Pitch software has been developed that one can easily and inexpensively download onto a personal computer equipped with a microphone (either one built into the computer itself, or a simple external microphone like a webcam). One such highly recommended vocal software program is called PitchPerfect. This singing software program provides simple exercises, played on a piano that the user sings back into the microphone. As the vocalist sings, the voice software program creates a graph on the screen of his voice pitch against the desired vocal pitch. Thus the vocal software allows the singer to actually see his mistake, and make corrections instantly. Users of this vocal software program report improvements in their pitch matching abilities within the first ten minutes. If you are curious, there is a demonstration of PitchPerfect vocal software on the website.
Upon using this pitch sing software, professional singers will discover that they too have intonation problems that can be dealt with. Community choristers will be able to use singing software to target their pitch problems. Most importantly, all singers everywhere, including those closet vocalists who thought they could not carry a tune in a bucket, will find that with just a little practice with voice software (about ten minutes a day) they can cure these problems.
Vocal software is a valuable tool for diagnosing and fixing pitch problems. Anyone who wishes to sing well, whether at an amateur or professional level, should invest in such pitch software.
