Will it help with voice cracking
Studies using the Breather in people with voice disorders have shown that RMT helps improve vocal intensity, breathiness, strain, pitch range, and semitone range, as well as breath support for voice (pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33992476/). Based on these results, the Breather should help improve voice issues. Voice cracking may be covered by breathiness.
