Can Leon sing like Roy? High and low?

I’ve read some comments concerning Leon’s vocal range, but I’m wondering if Leon could sing some of my favorite songs, originally sung by Roy Orbison. This would be a huge factor for me to consider.

Anyone know exactly what is Leon’s range? Also Lola’s, if you know it?

I would just shoot for it. Experimenting with the voices actually can produce really cool results. Check out version1 of the project-x intro, that’s Leon singing in high tones. :D

I asked about Lola’s range some time ago on here but can’t find the answer. I seem to remember that she was sampled rather low, and her natural range varies from well below middle C (possibly Eb) up to about Eb 2 octaves higher. A bit of an electronic Nina Simone. Now there’s a though for a cover song. Nina Simone had a very deep voice, quite suited to Lola I would have thought.

the thread about Leon, Lola (and miriam’s) range is here… [url:dz1cb31z]http://www.vocaloid-user.net/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=33&start=15[/url:dz1cb31z]

(there are 2 other discussions going on in the same thread, so just ignore them……. a post from Tazman covers Leon and Miriams range and a post from me covers Lola)

Leon sings well in higher ranges, but not as a man. Sings well in lower ranges, but not as a woman. The gender change part of the program really could use some reworking.

This may be because the highest set of recordings for Leon were sung falsetto.

I’m 57 years old and I can still sing most songs without falsetta. I think vocaloid needs to rethink what range falsetta starts at. I sound just like a famous singer too. Umm never mind that it’s Willy Nelson.

Depends what you mean by falsetto. I read somewhere (don’t quote me on this) that the typical adult male Baritone can reach Eb or E natural without switching to falsetto. But that might have been reference to opera, not popular music. Anyway…it seems to me that switching timbre is a natural part of the voice.

Falsetto means producing a voice outside (above) your usual range. If you mean the E or Eb just above middle C, that is the top end of a typical male bass singer. Tenors get up to the C above middle C. However, it is possible for the male voice to sing above its normal range without falsetto, this is called countertenor in classical. Pop singers have been doing this for some time….
Interestingly, the male falsetto and countertenor were needed in the past to sing the high notes in the churches, because women were not allowed to do this. Many males, in order to sing these high notes, were castrated. In Intalian Opera, these castrati were the “pop stars” of their day.
Brings tears to my eyes..

[quote="andromeda":1tjw83s2]Falsetto means producing a voice outside (above) your usual range.[/quote:1tjw83s2]

Falsetto is in fact a [i:1tjw83s2][b:1tjw83s2]False[/b:1tjw83s2][/i:1tjw83s2]-tto voice. Little boy choirs sing falsetto. Falsetto is not a real voice, it’s a kind of imitation voice, not considered a real voice. They are the kinds of vocal harmonies you can hear in 1970s country-rock, a-la The Eagles, America, Doobies and many more styles of the time like The Stylistics (remember?). I love those harmonies. But it is men trying to sing like women .. and back in the 1970s men also had the high heels and long hair to prove it, LOL. Very effeminate dear :roll:

HO Ho :D – which 70’s? The ones with Mozart, Beethoven, etc etc. Still others were short, bald and pug-ugly… step up The Bee Gees, Mr. Jimmy Summerville… (forgive me Jimmy – great singer you are!)

Was Jimmy Sommerville’s voice the result of training or medical intervention? <img class=” />
