I wanted to name our cat General Sterling Price but the other half intervened and refused.

If the words "Joy" and "happiness" had precisely the same meaning and differed in no way but spelling and pronunciation an English speaker might start a sentence expecting to use one of these words but when it came time in the sentence for this word to come out of his mouth the other would be just as likely to pop out and when and if it did there would be no sense of disruption or derailment in the conversation. In order to be sure which of the two words you would end up saying you would have to actually speak. This is why two words with exactly the same meaning, differing not in the slightest nuance or shading, are known as Shrodinger Cats.

Is this cat named Joy or Happiness? The answer is both until you call the little dickens to dinner.

Conversation at restaurant:

Customer: Hey! Hey don't pour that coffee so fast. Hey stop it!!
Waiter: Huh?
Customer: You're crushing the molecules by pouring so fast too much friction distorts the taste!
Waiter: Uhh, umm, no this is a robusta blend got strong molecules to it.
Customer: Okay long as it's robusta. Still should be careful just in case.

You don't want to bruise the delicate coffee.

Redheads exist in similar form across the country.

So what you are saying is that all redheads drive lifted trucks and have accents.

layering the voice on a song, especially if the singer has a really good voice

you mean double tracking? lots of times it's actually up to the singer. some folks simply prefer the sound of their own voice when doubled.

 

so, who are you referring to anyways?

What an odd typo...and I read that post like four times and never noticed until you pointed it out.

Sometimes it makes the voice just seem so produced/fake, and ruins the 'purity' of the voice.

Was talking about The Weeknd, and some Sam Smith songs

Double tracking is nothing new. Hell, Les Paul was over dubbing and think he helped Buddy Holly double track vocals back in the 50s. In the 60s everyone from The Beatles to the Beach Boys to Ozzy Osbourne were double tracking vocals.

for the most part produced records are sort of fake, you want real music go see live shit. or even better listen to somebody completely unfiltered in a room, without a microphone or amplification. it's funny how much filtering goes into what we hear anymore. i've seen a few operas and i highly recommend it cause it's done almost entirely au natural. it'll give you a real appreciation for what people can do with their voice. Don Giovanni is a good one.

 

but yeah doubletracking everywhere. you usually hear it with male tenors, as piobaire points out. Buddy holly def, John Lennon apparently loved the sound of his voice doubled over. Listen to young Elton John before his surgery when he was a tenor and he doubletracks everything. what's funny with Sir Elton is when you listen to live recordings he actually has some body to his voice. occasionally you hear a baritone double tracked but it's actually kinda rare - try the Brothers Johnson strawberry letter 23. what a track.

 

imo anyways listen to good music and don't worry about it. best album production ever = The Pixies Surfer Rosa. the BOMB. when you listen to it, remember they cut that shit in 1988.

I don't get how at least two of the top ten posters of all time have not posted here in years.

They were just a greater generation.  Kids today are slackers.
