The story is that one of the producers for Enrique Iglesias got tired of listening to his voice and wanted the world to hear what he really sounded like. This was during the recording of his album and not when this video clip was recorded. Why they did put it together is because it`s TV and they have to show something on the screen. Maybe not so smart.
The question is if it`s really Enrique Iglesias singing or not. The sound clip have been known about for a long time but I guess it`s more difficult to spread a sound clip on the net than a video.
It still not might be a real clip but can anyone tell me why he, just like many other famous singers, always uses playback when they sing live?And the fact that all big artists uses some kind of voice quality enhancer. (Still no such thing as computer generated voices though.)
So...did anybody know what the narrator was saying? I heard a bit of English but couldn`t make it out...
As to the video, I`d be willing to bet that it was rigged for sensationalism as the synchronization was off, and I don`t believe it was due to poor editing. Even so, the man sadly is a big enough loser to begin with; the days of teeny-bopper pop are over (thank goodness), so why don`t we just let him and the Backstreet Boys and the A-Teens to their misery?
Also, trello, nice analysis. You in the music business?
It`s not just boy bands; no pop artist can sing. At all.
ANYWAY I CAN PICTURE SOME DUDE RECORDING HIS VOICE OVER ENRIQUE`S. TONE AND DUBBING IS OUT OF SYNC
I remember that incident, and it was a roadie that recorded that during such lip-sync song.
Frankly, it doesn`t remove anything from the artist. Besides, the "repair" machines don`t really work professionally, it`s only used for very bad and un-re-recordable samples you absolutely need.
Personally, I think either:a) Enrique Englesias is being defamed by hatersb) He is singing into a `silenced`mic, and has had a backing track with someone else singing his part. - The mic has not been silenced, but isn`t wired into the PA.c) He had a sore throat.
It`s more than just pitch going on when you sing. Where you breathe, the timing of the singing, the point of origin of the note (throat or diaphragm) and dynamics all play a major factor.
Now, autotune can do a pretty good job in realtime analysis of a singer`s pitch and match it to the music, but if the pitch is off by any more than a tone (and it was in that clip), then autotune would set the pitch at a different note in the chord.
On top of that, it would also have to do a realtime quantise of the singer`s voice, and as good as sound systems and recording software/hardware gets, there isn`t a program yet written that can predict a singer`s note if the singer comes in late on the beat.
Thinking about it... the probably all do.
Not saying it`s real, not saying it`s fake.
That clip wasn`t even funny it just hurt my ears.:-/
