ive been listening to some albums and im so jealous of how they get mixed. i hear these vocals that are just soooo clear and sound like they are in the room with you. to be specific, im stuck on chevelles newest cd. at any rate, not long ago i started mixing and ive been playing with different effects to bring the vocals out and make them clearer. im not talking about compression, i just need some help on making them clearer. maybe just gimme a few examples like "apply x amount of reverb, double the vocals or not, do this do that". i need a little guidance in this area. the vocals i recorded dont sound bad, they just dont have the presence that professional mixing gives. maybe you could give me some examples of how you all usually mix your vocals. i know that theres not just a single way to do it, and that all songs are gonna be different, but i need a start. any help would be appreciated.
