Hello there, Thanks for taking some time to read this. I'm having some trouble with my Vocal Recordings. to make this a little bit easier I'm going to write down what my Set up looks like. Sound Card/Interfase: Emu1820. CPU: PC 3.0ghz, 1Gb Ram, 200Gb HD. Software: Nuendo 3.1 and Also Cubase SE Vocal Mic: Shure KSM44 Mostly what I do is record the vocals without any kind of effects; sometimes I might use a little bit of compression. When I'm mastering the vocal tracks I can't get them so sound how I want them to. In my opinion I think it might be a reverb, the Eq or the compression (3:1) Or all of them; Hehehehehe. Heres a song I recorded, the mixing isn't that good. its just a preview but focus on the vocals. and tell me what would you change. mastering wise. http://www.freakstudios.com/GoneAway.mp3 I Hope you dont have much trouble understanding my english, it's not my native language but I do my best. Pd: I Think theres too much reverb on the vocals. I really want to hear them more "present", upfront but clean. maybe someone can help me out with an Eq idea. Thanks. Pablo Dominguez Freak Studios.
