Default Jons vocal on Last Chance Train

Just curious to get peoples opinions on it.

It's definitely a high vocal but I think if there is one song that sounds like Jon the least, it's this one. Its most noticeable when he says the word TRAIN.

I forgot the producers name but I think he's the producer responsible for the Ozzy voice.

I think Jon sounds very youthful which is key to a good song. Im just not sure how I feel about the sound of it. Would a whole album work with that vocal?

There were some discussions about it maybe two years ago. The entire song's pitch was raised for whatever reason. I think it was Seb that lowered it by a bit and it sounded far more natural. I may still have the sample he did laying around, I'll see if I can track it down.

That would be very cool. I'd like to hear it

It doesn't sound like Jon because he never recorded the vocal that way. It's remixed so it's as if it's recorded in standard tuning. I changed it in Adobe Audition and tuned it half a step down and Jon sounds very normal that way. I think they also sped it up a bit but I'm not sure.

Right now I don't have access to Audition but I've done the same process in SoundForge. Here's a small part to show what it's really supposed to sound like. The sound is a bit off but you'll get the idea.

Jon has recorded various vocal takes of the post 2000 albums this way, Have A Nice Day and I Am being perfect examples of this. Tune the songs half a step down and Jon sounds very close to what he sounded like during the Have A Nice Day Tour.

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

Yes. That is much better.

YouTube Jessica Simpson Ozzy Winter Wonderland, who is the guy playing piano? I believe that's the producer. And he does the same thing with Sharon's voice too. Not to drift off topic but it makes me wonder about Ozzys voice bring a bunch of B.S.
