The microphone is a sound transmission tool for singing, and it is also an indispensable sound transmission method for this singing form of popular singing. The microphone can amplify the volume, amplify the advantages, but also amplify the weak points, destroy the timbre, experienced pop singers, the microphone is not only It is used to amplify the sound, and also uses the microphone to express feelings and show the skills of sound use.
The precautions regarding the use of the microphone are:
First, about the volume.
When using a microphone, the volume of singing should be slightly controlled. This is the key to good use of the microphone. When there are no special requirements for singing style and emotion, the volume of the three voice zones of high, middle and low should be harmonious and unified. For songs with stronger dynamics, the microphone can be slightly extended to prevent the microphone from emitting sharp and piercing sounds. For soft, angry, and hoarse songs, keep the microphone closer, but don't sing it with your mouth. This not only affects the transmission of the sound, but also affects the overall state of singing. In the singing of some songs, the singer skillfully uses the microphone, zooms in and out, or uses the left and right hands alternately. This is a skill performance of pop singers. This can strengthen expressiveness and enhance the atmosphere of the scene. This kind of performance is mostly in rock and roll. Reflected in type songs, but in technical performance, don’t forget the overall performance style of the song.
The second is breathing.
All kinds of breathing are very sensitive when the microphone is transmitted, especially the high-sensitivity microphone. A gentle breath will make a louder sound through the microphone. In order to avoid these problems, in addition to practicing skills such as stealing and grabbing the breath, the breath should not be too obvious. At least when you take a big breath, you should move the microphone away, and then move the microphone close after the breath. You should consciously hide the breathing traces. However, in the air-singing style of popular singing, the way of breathing is part of the singing performance style, so the sound during the breathing can be more obvious. This depends on the performance style of the song, emotions and personal singing style.
Third, about biting the word.
When using a microphone to sing a word, you should pay attention to the clarity and accuracy of each word. The word head should not be too heavy, especially the words with heavier spouts, such as "quilt, put, or fat". If the word head is too heavy, it will cause bangs. The noise will affect the singing effect. When you encounter these words, you can fine-tune the microphone, tilt the back end of the microphone a little, and make it at a 45-degree angle with the face, and the words should be loose. In addition to these popping sounds, you should also pay attention to controlling the labial and dental sounds of "z, c, s", such as "zai, cai, suo" and so on.
The last one is the distribution of volume.
Generally speaking, for a good song, in terms of volume distribution, the accompaniment music should account for 40%, and the singing voice should account for 60%. If you feel that the timbre is good, you should appropriately reduce the volume of some accompaniment music to emphasize the singing voice. If you are unfamiliar with the melody of the song, or when you sing this song for the first time, it is easy to go out of tune and not close to the beat, so you should increase some accompaniment music appropriately.
