Hey all, I've got a question about my vocals. They sound detached somehow. I'm pretty sure it's not my equipment. I'm using an Audio-technica AT4040 condenser mic w/ shockmount, M-Audio firewire 410 interface, and Cubase SE for recording software. Is it my plug-ins? The reverb in the SE version sucks, as does the delay. The dynamics package is fine (compression, noise gate, limiter). I generally lay down the drum and bass lines in Reason and run them through ReWire in Cubase. They sound great, almost pro quality, but when I put the vocals down they sound too "live", I guess. I'm not talking about natural reverb, because my acoustic foam has taken care of that. It sounds like my music is 10 feet away and my vocals are 6 inches away. What's going on here? How can I drop the vocals back into the mix without losing their presence?
