I'm currently working on a vocal track, I've not done that many so i'm quite in-experienced at mixing raw recordings and sitting them in a mix. Has anyone got any advice? I really want this track to sound great and would prefer to learn how to mix vocals myself than get someone else to do it for me. So far, I'm struggling to get them to sit right mixed with the instrumental (they seem to sound too dry, however adding reverb to them doesn't really fit with the instrumental). I've worked with fully mixed vocals loads of times and do perfectly fine with them, I just always seem to struggle with raw vocals, no idea why haha! So frustrating! Any tips or general advice would be grateful!
Hi James! Great to see you guys interacting. So this is a masterclass on its own next music production. It took me quite some time to figure this out. I've done a slight tutorial with FaderPro that you can check here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FS4NBzhh9Ww
Next to that you can always get in touch with us if you want to dig deep and learning to do it yourself. There are a lot of different approaches on vocal-production. Cheers
Hi James, use also a chorus, stereo delay as bus fx. And depending of the vocal recording a light saturation can make some magic. That's just some advices which can help you. Check some tutorials for example by Cr2 or others that you can find on YouTube. They can help to start, it depends where you want to get your vocals sound like.
Don't know, if this will help you!?!
