How to sing and record better vocals in the home studio.
In this video I give you my two biggest tips for recording and mixing great sounding vocals in the home studio, and you don’t need to be an expert or have expensive gear to do it.
1. Sing like nobody’s listening
When you’re just starting to record your vocals, the tendency is to sing within yourself, which can result in a vocal performance that lacks energy and passion . Simply increasing your energy levels and giving a 100% passionate performance can make all the difference and give your vocals new life.
2. Mix your vocals at a higher volume
When you’re starting out, you may lack confidence and therefore mix your vocals at a lower level, meaning they don’t sit nicely in the mix. Using a combination of volume, compression, EQ and volume automation, you can get your vocals to the right level make them sit nicely in the mix.
