I was wondering why is there a pitch adjustment in solfegiator if then we have to sing notes that aren't in the selected range. I put myself as a tenor (yeah, my voice is that low) and they have been putting B4, which I can't sing without my voice cracking horribly (at least when shifting quickly from C4 to B4, I am not a singer and my technique is bad).
The highest note in my selected range would be G4, which happens to be the highest note I can sing without fearing a crack, but I am not going to put it lower cause I wouldn't be able to reach the lower end.
Am I doing something wrong, does this happen to other ranges too?

Good point! A "range detection" would be helpful (and healthy not to strain your voice). I use "erol singer's studio"-app to improve my range (you don't need the subscription, I only use the free interval trainings under "ear training for singers")

Have you tried the bass setting just to find out? Maybe the lowest note won’t be too low after all. I am a bass (a *real* bass), and the tones are in the less comfortable high range for me, but unfortunately there is no lower setting for me.

Do they at least use the bass clef? I will try, but my lowest is D3 hahaha
Thanks to you both =)

No, only treble clef. It just sounds active lower. But I realise now the the uncomfortable range happens in Interval Barks, not Solfegiator. I also noticed that there is a Baritone setting; you could also try that.
