First off, if this post should've been under the Vocal forum, I do apologize, but I decided it should go here since it pertains to mixing as opposed to capturing the vocal. Now to the matter at hand. I am having trouble getting my vocal tracks to sit well in the mix with everything else. It's either too loud or too soft, but never just right. Now, I know that you certainly can't give me any specific tips as I haven't given you a specific example, but what I am wondering is if there are some general guidelines I might not be following for mixing in your vocals with the rest of the mix. For your general info, I am mainly working with acoustic material. Also, when I am doing ad libs for a final chorus, for instance, I find it hard to have each vocal line/melody clearly represented in the mix. Even when I carve out e.q. from other instruments and pan to my heart's delight, I still find the vocals are lacking the clarity they need. Oh, and this is all presuming I have captured an excellent vocal. Thanks to all that help in advance!!!
