Guitarist Dave Crenshaw lost his natural voice after he lost his vocal cords and couldn’t find a replacement, so he turned to a digital recording system.
The result is a full-fledged recording, which Crensley said was “almost like a virtual assistant” when he first started.
“It’s a little bit like a robotic assistant.
It’s like, ‘You can record me, and you can keep me, just as if I was your old friend,'” Crensdys son, Scott, said.
Scott said the technology helped Crensbys “make music for a living.”
Crenses son said his dad would always sing and sing and play instruments, but that the recording system helped him keep his voice and make music for himself.
“You can just hear the strings playing, and it’s like an organ,” he said.
“When you hear your voice, it’s just like a synthesizer.
It sounds like you’re speaking to someone.
It really is a little different.”
Scott Crenschys son said the system allowed his dad to “make art” while keeping his voice.

“I’m still not used to the sound of a synthesiser, but this system makes music,” he told CNN.
“As long as I have my voice, you can just see what I’m doing.”
Scott said he would continue to use the system, but would prefer to have his voice heard, rather than just being able to listen to it.
“My dad used to have a vocal coach, and he was always like, if you have any vocal issues, you should just go get the acoustic guitar,” he explained.
“He was always trying to get me to play.
He was trying to help me to get to the next level.”
Scott’s son said he has been impressed by Crenscheys ability to retain a voice even when he’s no longer able to hear it.
“I’ve never heard a person that has a voice like this,” he noted.
“Even if you can’t hear the notes or you don’t hear what’s going on, the thing that makes him such a good vocalist is the ability to maintain his voice, and to be able to do that for as long as he did.”
Chenscheys son explained that it was his father’s ability to be “one with his music that really helped him become a great musician.”
Cauds son said when he got his first digital recorder, it was hard to tell if it was a recording or a voice recorder.
“But then one day, I was like, this is not a recording, this just looks like a recording,” he recalled.
“And I’m like, wow, I can just record everything, and everything’s just perfect.
I’ve got the guitar and the bass and the drums and the vocals, and I’m just doing what I wanted to do.”
