The vocal sells the song. It's what we connect with first, it's what carries most of the emotion. So a great vocal recording is crucial if you want to make a professional sounding record that actually resonates with people.
Funny enough, vocal recording is very simple and insanely difficult at the same time. Technically there's not much to it, compared to a complex drum recording scenario, for example. But the most important part, the performance can be hard to get right. If the vibe and the character are not there, you're basically screwed. There's not much you can do to solve that problem in the mix.
And another thing that can get tricky, is the room. That's something I hear all the time in the tracks people send me to mix. It's really important to get the room out of the equation, especially if you're recording your vocal tracks in a less than ideal practice room scenario.
The good news is: This can all be done and if you take care of a few things, you can capture great vocal recordings in almost any room.
In this video I show you how.
