With a forceful voice or vocal FX

There are two things this could possibly be referring to. This most likely is that it is a note to tell the singer that they must sing with a forceful voice. However, it could be stating that the singer's voice needs FX added to it. This is unlikely, as this is not usually done in opera, although still a possibility.

Efectos (or FX in English) are used to enhance the sound of any type of audio signal, including vocals. Common FX for vocals are reverb, delay, compression and EQ.

Example sentence(s):
  • Sing this song with a forceful voice.
  • We need to add vocal FX to the recording of the song.
