Hey guys. I'm relatively new to home recording. I'm recording all my instruments either through midi or direct line-in. The only thing I'm tracking live at home is vocals. I bought an SM7b and I am using the Roland UA-55 Quad-Capture and the Cloudlifter to give the sm7 the gain it needs. Here's my question: The room I'm recording in is not treated (11 x 9 x 9h) and I don't have any money left to treat it. I'm mixing through a pair of nice headphones, which I know is not ideal, but I don't have the cash for a decent set of monitors right now. My concern is not so much mixing as tracking. I chose the sm7b because my understanding is that it will work well in an untreated room vs a condenser, but how well? How much noise will I pick up that I can't hear until the final master and it's too late? My only other option is to pay to go to a large studio, track the vocals and bring the tracks home to stitch and mix them myself. However, those hours can add up financially, and I'm not sure I'd get as good of a performance. If I sound like sh** the day I go in to the studio, oh well. Where as recording vocals at home, I can take my time, wait for the right day, etc. So how much impact will an untreated room have on an SM7b in a final mix? I'll be sending it off to have it mastered. Will the average listener be able to tell? Is the performance, at this stage, much more important, or will the sound be vastly different? I feel like I should always go for the better performance, but not if my recordings won't be decent. By the way, I will be hanging a duvet behind me while I sing, so there's a little control, but not much. Sorry for the long post, any thoughts?
