There are many ways to make your voice sound louder whether it be through vocal acrobatics and projection or use of technology.
What's your favorite way to get loud?
Be sure to comment with your signal chain and projection tips!
In the film "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves," two sets of parents shrink to the size of Tom Thumbs and Thumbelinas. During the course of their adventures as pint-sized people, Rick Moranis' character entertains ways to make their voices return to full size so that they can communicate with the children. When you're that tiny, you can at least try to sound bigger!
In basic terms where audio is concerned, particularly with voice, the word amplify means to increase the volume of sound or how loud your voice is heard.
Aside from popping yourself into a speaker system, which worked for one of the characters in the film (and I don't recommend!), you can amplify your voice using natural techniques such as projecting from your diaphragm or relying on technical solutions as such elements of the signal chain.
Typically a microphone serves as the primary element that captures your voice but that's not the only piece of audio recording equipment or gear you can use let alone software accommodations.
No doubt you do so in many ways and employ different amplification techniques for varying situations. Whatever you do and however you do it, let me know!
