How to Sing Better

If you’re wondering how to sing better there are plenty of tips and tricks out there to help you improve your singing voice. If you are learning how to sing, then doing exercises like maintaining the right posture (tall posture), breathing from the diaphragm, training your ear, and practicing scales are likely to be your daily routine.


But if you’re dabbling in singing and want to spice up your live streams or in-game moments with some karaoke stuff, technology comes to the rescue. This is why we created Voicetune voice effects, so you can easily and instantly tune your voice in real-time. And if you’re asking yourself ‘is using a voice tuner cheating?’, don’t feel bad about it — you’re not cheating. Most pop and trap stars out there are already using autotune anyways. Keep reading below to find out how to sing better, quick and easy.

How to tune your voice for
singing in real-time


If you want a voice effect for karaoke sites, you can use a karaoke mic together with Voicemod, and improve your singing in a really easy way. You don’t need any technical or musical background. To get you started right away we created five different voice effects for you to experiment with:

  • Evolver
  • Bonny
  • Very Disco
  • Trap Tune
  • Calitune

In addition to these voices, you now have a nifty, powerful vocal tuner inside our Voicelab, enabling you to tune your voice before sparkling some extra musical fairy dust on top of it with effects like Reverb, Delay, Vocoder, and much more. Now you can create endless musical voices to suit your taste.

How to use voice tuner: Set up your singing avatar 

Here is how to use a voice tuner step by step:


  • First, download Voicemod for PC and install it correctly on your PC.
  • Open Voicemod and, in the Voicelab, select Voicetune (it’s the first in the chain). Enable ‘Hear Myself‘ and ‘Voice Changer‘ at the bottom of the window, and try singing with the effect on (cool huh?). Now just select the Key and the Scale (Major/Minor) you want to use and play around with the ‘mix’ control to adjust the overall amount of effect. Tip: leave this parameter to the max if you want that classic autotune voice.
  • What key/scale should you choose? Generally speaking, minor keys sound more melancholy and sad while major keys have a happy and cheerful melody. But if you want to sing along a specific track from your favorite artist then there are plenty of sites such as tunebat.com where you can easily find the key of any song.
  • Once you’ve identified the song, the key, and scale, you just have to play the song and sing with Voicemod on. For extra fun, we recommend you use just the music in the background, with no singing. Singing on top of another voice, even at low volumes, is more difficult. You can even record yourself with Audacity or another similar free audio software and then listen back to your performance, to practice, and improve on that. That’s how you can sing better!

How can I sound like Kanye West, Post Malone, Travis Scott etc. 

Ok, let’s give you a practical example of how to use Voicemod to sound like major pop and trap artists out there. Say you want to sing along a song in the key of C Major like for example ‘Save Your Tears’ (Ariana Grande, The Weeknd), ‘Peaches’ (Justin Bieber feat. Daniel Caesar and Gideon), ‘Essence’ (WizKid) or ‘Happier Than Ever’ (Billie Eilish).

  • Step 1: In the Voicelab, activate Voicetune at the very top of the list of effects. Select ‘C’ as Key and ‘Major’ as scale.

    💡 Tip – For that typical autotune-like effect, leave the ‘Mix’ control to the max.

  • Step 2: Let’s now add some dimension and depth to your voice using reverb. We are going to aim for a decently sized virtual space, so we’ll set ‘Room Size’ between 70 and 80.

    💡 Tip – Using too much reverb will make it hard to understand words. The secret is to bring it in gradually (with the mix control) so it sounds natural and exciting without being too distracting.

  • Step 3: We don’t need all those rumbly frequencies, do we? Let’s get rid of them using the High Pass filter.

    💡 Tip – Removing lower, unnecessary frequencies from a sound helps you avoid distortion and get better clarity

  • Step 4: Stereo effects can be fun but it’s easy to overdo. Always let your ears be the judge.

    Congratulations, you’re done! That’s how to sound like a music star!

How do voice tuners work?



In humans, harmonics come from the vocal folds. In every sound or voice, harmonics ultimately define the source of a sound. In other words, they help us answer the question: what sound is that? Is it a hen, a trumpet, a violin, or my neighbor’s voice?


Then there is air inside the vocal tract that vibrates at different pitches depending on its size and shape of opening. We call these pitches ‘formants’.


You can change (or modulate, we should say) the formants in the sound by changing the size and shape of the vocal tract. This happens instinctively. You don’t really have to think about it. It’s a little bit like breathing.


Now here is where the fun happens. In the digital domain, we can artificially alter these components to create brand new sounds, not possible in real life!


Voice tuners exploit these principles to correct the pitch of your voice. Nifty huh?
