Marion Recording: sing unison w/o consonants? (21) Recording: sing unison w/o consonants? 01 Apr 08

Hi folks. I'm soon going to a studio to record a song. My engineer has suggested that I practice singing it without "hard consonants" in order to have two overlapping voice tracks - not harmony, but unison - that would make the sound richer. However, the doubled hard consonants (he gave the examples of d, t, and s) are too noticeable and need to be either omitted or edited out.

Sounds interesting - I've noticed that the sound is quite pleasant when I sing along in unison with a recording of myself.

Has anyone here used this technique in recording? If so, which consonants or consonant clusters did you leave out while singing the second track?

Thanks, Marion
