    (edited by audiokid because of bad title... (i looked through the forum and !!!!!) this means absolutely nothing and will produce no answer). Changed to "preparing vocals on a track.".

    Topic most likely belongs in the newbie section.

    Some more info would be helpful. What are you recording? What kind of gear are you using?

    And you don't "master" a vocal track unless it is a cappella or a solo narration.

    I think what you mean is that you want the vocal to be as loud as possible without distorting or excessive noise underneath it.

    Any noise that is picked-up during recording will be amplified as you bring up the levels.

    There is no decent way to get rid of all the noise on a solo voice recording. EQ'ing it out makes the voice sound unatural. Noise-reduction plug-ins make you sound like a droid.

    The noise needs to be eliminated before the sound hits the mic.

    Use a high quality condensor or ribbon mic with a low-frequency cutoff switch.

    Use a high quality, tube preamp.

    Record in an isolated, properly treated vocal booth.

    In other words, unless you have the gear and skills, you are probably better off paying someone who does.

    If you want professional, studio quality sound for your vocals, that usually means hiring a professional and recording in a studio.

    If it's just for hobby or making demos, you will have to compromise the quality. There is no way around it.

    Good luck! :cool:
