Anyone got experience mixing/fixing bad vocals??? Hearing these modern punkbands live, it's like hey they can't sing. Okey some might... but it isn't very common. And when you're listening to a record, it's like day and night... Do they fix all this in the studio, or do they push the record button to the final take is on tape...? I got this mix project for fun from a local band and also good friends of mine. Everything's great, great drums, great guitars and so on, except the vocals. It isn't like it's out of tune, okey sometimes but not that much. But still it doesn't sound good. I've tryed to compress and eq out of hell, but after hours my ears get tired and nothing sounds right. How can I fix the vocals? I know it will never sound like pro, but descent, it's just a demo. If it was a serious recording for a label, I would get the singer to sing it all over again. But for a demo, it's hard telling your friend he sucks... What should I use... plugins? settings and so on, effects? I've heard about dub it? Mixing vocals is something new, cus me myself can't sing, and that's why I've always been doin' this instrumental songs for myself and to independet skate & snowboard movies... All help would really be appriciated! thanx!
