Default No Sale, sorry.

Since this was not posted in the "protected" Christianity sub, I can speak my mind, right?

The link provides a bad demonstration of a typical Digital Sound Effects amplifier set on "echo" (or "Cathedral" on some units) but with a very long lag time set into the system. I have that option on my professional Wharfdale™ mixer amp.

A true demonstration of angels joining in would require a video record of the event, with an unbiased professional audio recording team there to make sure there was no "foolin' around" with the switches on that Yamaha! Under those conditions, the "angels" would disappear.

Of course, those who want to believe in angels will, no matter what. Very imaginative stuff.

Atheist japanese who invented digital audio and audio synthesizers are now making people think theyre hearing angels! LOL

Oh the irony...

There are so many better real human choirs then these Yamaha angels.. Here is a catholic mass, and there are no angels it's humans and it sounds alot more angelic than those recordings to me.

I agree with rifleman's post above. An easy audio trick to reinforce already held belief about angels.

Incidentally, for those who don't already know, a relatively inexpensive pitch correction device can make a very poor singer sound like an 'angel'. And it's used in live performance, not only in the studio. Keep that in mind when you rave about what a great singer so-and-so is.

I guess since the head honcho and lead instrument was kicked out of heaven, them angels probably need sum hooman inspurayshun frum teh hooman musicians to lead them in their never-ending praise and worship of teh creator?

Or do they just miss the head honcho?

Since he was booted, heaven must be awfully quiet - no?

Yeah, it all makes perfect sense once you have consumed too many beers for the day

I just went back and listened to the original recording. There is no video, only audio. I own a keyboard that has a variety of effects including a simulation of human voices. After listening to this I can tell you that it sounds just like what I can play on my keyboard without the necessity of having actual singing angels in the room. This is an electronic effect that's been in existence since at least the 70's. Three Dog Night had a very good keyboard player when I saw them in Missoula, Montana in the early seventies and he had this same effect on his keyboards which sounds very much like human voices when he did a long solo. It's a little different because it's electronic but it sounds very real.
Also, I'm not trying to pat myself on the back but anyone who bought a ticket to this event also bought a ticket to the University Ballroom which included a performance by a group I was in at the time and the names of both groups were on the ticket. I think Three Dog Night outclassed us but we did our best.
