    Wow we had another magic fairy moment today

    So Howard started to talk about mind over matter bullshit... he said that he use to worry about how shitting his voice sounded on air.. and then one day he stop worrying about it and all by itself he voice turned deep like other radio DJs

    Kind of reminds me of the power of love saving Yoda's heart bullshit

    why doesn't he tell Gary the Retard to relax about being retarded then??

    oh and and about his voice becoming deeper......

    He said that? :jj:

    There's a clip of Jackie calling in (while he's on the side of the road with a flat tire), where he comments how Howard really does sound different on the phones and then laughs. Howard sweeps it under the rug and changes the subject.

    That's not what a compressor does. A compressor alters the dynamic range of the audio signal - make the quiet bits and the loud bits closer to the same volume level. I believe that he introduced a subtle yet noticeable pitch-shift device into the chain at some point.

    compression won't deepen your voice it clips the highs and lows and can make soft sounds louder without loud sounds blowing out your ears

    theres other processing equipment that all radio uses that deepen his voice

    Ever notice how he struggles (talks slower) to deepen his voice anytime he's a on a talk show?

    Or a lot of EQ. Something like this but more bass still...with everything above 500Hz at 0 dB

    Howard called into Bubba once and I didn't recognize that it was Howard.

    everyone latches on to the time he freaked out about his compression not getting what it is. He runs compression thru his headphones so he doesn't have to yell to hear himself...Note how many other hosts esp non pro end up yelling because they can't hear themselves

    He said his voice deepened after the rhinoplasty. Seems legit.

    And considering Beth has Howard's balls in her purse, his voice should be higher than ever.

    I think there's compression in the effects chain too. Likely upward compression (so he doesn't have to speak loudly) which keeps his voice level constant. And of course every board would have some sort of limiter, either brick wall or soft knee so if someone screams it doesn't distort. All of this would be in the HSS, and then of course the feed goes to SiriusXM which does its own bandwidth compression to 64k or 128k I believe.

    Jumbo vs merely Plus-Sized? Wow

    Are there any links which capture his normal speaking voice that you know of?

    his actual voice is so high pitched and nasally that it has been known to confuse dogs for miles

    There are hours of his nasally high pitched voice on the radio in the 80's. Try YouTube.

    I heard Howard way back when he was on in Detroit. He sounded like Alan Alda. Certainly not the baritone voice he has now.
