I just finished up a fun little project of covering the theme song to the tv show "Drake and Josh". I feel pretty good about the mix but I keep hearing a tiny bit of too much tube saturation/distortion on the lead vox. It's funny because it only catches my ear sometimes, and after listening again I can't hear it when actively listening for it. All of my levels are good and have plenty of headroom. I do have a bit of rasp in my voice and i'm wondering if that's what i'm hearing.
Please tell me what you think!
that's some crazy auto-tuning on that vocal run -- that kind of thing just pulls me right out of the mix - I hear artifacts on the rest of the vocal as well (little tuning scoops etc) and the general tone of a tuned vocal. When I listen for distortion specifically I don't hear it but I find it hard to get beyond that kind of vocal because it's already very processed to my ear.
