Welcome to The Voice Connection Sound Off; a forum for users of books like Raise Your Voice, Melody to Madness, The Ultimate Breathing Workout, and Unleash Your Creative Mindset, as well as a place for Vendera Vocal Academy members to interact.

This message board was created so that singers could come together and "sound off" to help support each other during vocal development and the creative process of unleashing the creative spark that occurs when writing and producing music. Currently, myself and vocal coaches Ben Valen, Ray West, and Ryan Wall are here to respond periodicially to your questions, with new vocal coaches coming soon. But, feel free to help each other too:)

This board is here for you to ask questions about my and my fellow coach's books, videos, and MP3 programs, as well as offer others help with our vocal techniques. You may also post videos of yourself and your band to share your music and ask for critiques.

Please refrain from negative comments, profanities, spamming, and inappropriate criticisms of vocal methodologies, vocal coaches, and singers. All negative posts will be deleted and subject to banning without question. I will not respond to negative posts, because, as Mark Twain once said, “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” With that said, positive criticism is welcome because that is how you'll grow as a singer during the training process.

Falsetto Slides - with octave jumps it seems.

So, I was doing some falsetto slides with the help of TunedXD app, and I noticed that when upon entry to a full voice my voice goes an octave lower from the octave I used for falsetto. Is this normal? If not, how would I go about fixing it?

Re: Falsetto Slides - with octave jumps it seems.

Sounds like quite a huge vocal break or reverse yodel.
Or is it the app which mistakes it for a different octave because of the overtones?

Re: Falsetto Slides - with octave jumps it seems.

I wouldn't know for sure.
This is how my falsetto slide would roughly go.

Re: Falsetto Slides - with octave jumps it seems.

This happens from time to time. You just need a lot of work still. You don't want this octave jump, you want to be able to indeed reach that higher octave, but that means another octasve of single steps to slide to that point. Know it takes time and patience and practice:)
