Contralto is a voice type, Alto is a choral part.

This forum's always used Contralto, Alto, Mezzo-Soprano and Soprano as the main voice types for females, and that's the only reason I put those there.

The only problem is that Alto has no meaning or clear definition outside of TRP (as a voice type). Essentially, it means high contralto, if I'm not mistaken.

Well, it's hard to discern a clear definition of any voice type considering everyone's voice is different; two people may have very different voices yet both be tenors. These days the voice types aren't really for informing, but instead a bit of humor considering the new adjective trend.

An average joe joining TRP probably wouldn't know what to make of 'Throat Tenor' or something like that, but someone who's listened to Nirvana and knows a bit about the voice could probably realize it's one way to describe Kurt Cobain's voice. After all, the voice types should never have meant to save you the trouble of listening to the music yourself, because it's not like they're universal truths or anything.

True, I guess using the term "Alto" is just one of my pet peeves. With something like "Baritenor", it's there in the title that it's some sort of "mix" between baritone and tenor, but with "Alto" it's just removing the "Contr", which is obscure. But yeah, I do enjoy the unique, humorous voice types of recent. Smile

Yes, a choral part usually sung by both actual contraltos and mezzo-sopranos (in very rare cases, tenors).

Right - it doesn't make much sense. "Alto" means "high", it was originally used to describe male voices; "contralto" means "opposing the high voice", following that etymology. "Baritenor" at least has some basis in actual modern voice classification. "Alto" is meaningless. An alto can be a soprano, mezzo soprano, or a contralto. That's why I have serious objections to it being used as a voice type on any forum.

Well within reason, I mean in reference to the alternative voice types most people seem to be using.

Some users appear to be copying the "purple or underlines mark backing vocals." do they actually have a plan to use both or should we specify that it should be either/or?

Post  Lupa on Sun Jan 11, 2015 11:57 pm

So, to sum up, is it ok just to write "live" in front of a song when a singer hits that note in several live concerts? What about if the singer only sang that song once? It's pretty easy to find if someone wants to look it up. I'll have to change some things in some of my threads

Example:

This was the only time Marcela Bovio sang this song. If I want to add this to my thread, which of this examples would be better?

D6 ("Stargazer" live)
D6 ("Stargazer" live)
D6 ("Stargazer" live at Metal Female Voices Fest XI 2013)
D6 ("Stargazer" live at Metal Female Voices Fest XI 2013)
I was thinking about either being very specific when labelling, even if it was sung only once or using a link with the timestamp, so it wouldn't really be necessary to write when and where the song was sung. I did it to her thread when adding the low notes that she only hit in a warm up video, is it ok?

I'm not colorblind, but I'm just wondering if the purple system denoting backing vocals has a noticeable difference to those who are. I think that the old standard colors like blue, red, orange, and even electric fuchsia are different enough, but purple just seems like it would be way too dark for colorblind users to differentiate.

I have used it when they are singing in falsetto in the background vocals, in this case I use blue color underlined

Incredibly late to this post because I thought I answered this in my post already. I say be as specific as possible. If it occurs in several/all performances, list/link the best one. It doesn't really matter if you link it or give the specific live instance, but it's usually safe to link it in case someone asks for it later on in the post.

Well, that's probably why people like Heroins would use underlines if he made a thread; although, I'm pretty sure he's made threads with purple before. I know he can't distinguish the Default and Range Advisor colors too well.

Well I'm colorblind as well (green-red), I can distinguish well enough but purple is not as visible as the old system colors. Underlines is better I think

I prefer underlines myself.

I've put Vitas' real name on his thread now even though I don't expect anyone to search for that. If a singer is known by more than one name it's certainly a good idea to include both (though just to clarify, we don't always need full names, e.g. if someone wants to make a Dido thread, "Dido Armstrong" will do fine: "Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong" is unnecessary). Btw if a stage name and real name would be placed differently in an alphabetical list (e.g. Alecia Moore/ Pink/ P!nk) should we just use the better known one for the index or what?

Pretty much have enough notes and not look sloppy. I'd SUGGEST having hyperlinks to any live notes included, but that's up to you. I'd say that looks pretty complete for now if you have done his ENTIRE recorded discography. I'd suggest looking up some other live performances or random singing outbursts (some people make "OMG X SINGSSSSSS~" videos on youtube for their favorite actor) but if you can't find any that's all good.

I've gone through his ENTIRE discography and all the "ÖMĞ RDJ SİNGSSŞŞ" videos I could find. This thread was in Range Stuff before but since it's a small thread and no criteria has been specified for Range Stuff, Starman moved it to WIP section.
