For you musical/singing Tintinologists--A Question

I have a question concerning vocal range. I've been using different programs (such as Singing Coach,the spectrum analysis in SoundForge and Adobe Audition to do this) and I've come back with a range of A2 to G4 (or A-2 to G1, whichever system of notation you prefer, the former is American and used on SoundForge.) Now my question is---what the heck IS that? A tenor, a dark alto,a contralto or what? I'm female, by the way, and my standard on-air voice has a fundamental frequency of about 150 Hz if that means anything in this.

Thanks!

150hz, I think is between D and D sharp. I'm also going to push the boat out and say your range is an Alto. Have a look at this chart however, it may make things clearer

Thanks Ranko! That does explain a lot. It seems to also swallow up most if not all of the tenor range, seems versatile.

Just please don't sing The Jewel Song from Faust! :-)

We had a discussion here over a year ago about who was musical and I think we had enough members then to be able to form a decent sized band. I wonder if we can still do that now? I'm the drummer.

That would be great Ranko! I also play clarinet, atseluhisdi (a Cherokee rivercane flute that sounds like an Irish tin whistle but with a limited range) and of course....the tin whistle.

Problem is, I don't read music, rather I play by ear or just improvise.
