  2. Thanks….. great video…. But is there any compression when we sing
    softly….. in nice Guy voice? Like Chris brown or Colby o donis for

    simply be breathing out, as soon as there is sound the vocal cords are
    closing to some degree, so yes there is always compression/cord closure
    when sound is being produced the question is how much and is the singer
    aware and in control of it?
