Vocal Recordings

Oftentimes vocals are looked upon as routine in the recording realm. As a result, I feel the effort one puts into details like the choice of the right mic, pre-amp, etc is minimal. But from what I've experienced, vocal recording is an area of huge possibilities. Thoughts?
Here is a blog that discusses this point:

I'm not sure whether this is a genuine post or some kind of advertisement for your studio. However, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt, and welcome you to these forums.

A quick look at past posts here at Recording.org (RO) will show the degree of thought and effort that is put into vocal recording by the contributors to this site. We have many professionals here, and they and others give their time and experience to help newcomers to the art of the recording, as well as encouraging those who are already started on their journey.

I had a quick listen to the samples on your website, and they sound well recorded. Perhaps further photographs showing the overall layout and the sound treatment in your studios would give RO members more of an idea of how you operate.

Hi, Bosswell. Sorry for coming across as a spam thread. While I do love the studio I work at, this was a genuine thought I had. Maybe I should have had deeper read of the forums here before posting this thread.
However, thanks a lot for taking the time and checking out the website all the same. It is always great to have the appreciation of fellow Engineers

We usually try to exchange here and avoid external link..
Of course for the purpose of demonstration, it's ok.. like a youtube video that you try to find how they've done something or how wrong.. etc..
The forum support mp3 direct upload. If you want to share your work, get comments or if you struggle with something in a mix.
The active members range from newbs to professionals and the majority are genuinely wanting to help in all subjects regarding recording and audio productions.

So with this, WELCOME to RO Kashyap !!

To answer your question, I have what you can call a semi-pro home recording studio.. Meaning it's in my home but I use high end gear in fairly treated rooms.
I have my go to for vocal mics but always take time to match the vocal and music genre.
One of my regular customer (a signer lady) come to record different styles of musics. Once it was country and another it was retro 50-60s. So not even do I try to match her voice but the music genre as well.
Not always easy, but it makes a good difference in the end.
To better adapt mics and vocals, I suggest having 3 types of mics inspired from classic mics.
The UA47 style for nazal and agressive high frequencies (because the 47 style capsule have less HF)
The UA87 style (good all around and well balance)
The AGK C12 Style for the darker sources (it has a bump in the HF)
Orginals or clones, it doesn't mather if you know them well ;)
