Looking for feedback on my Cloud Rap song

Hello everyone,

My name is Choof, I am an indie artist from Ontario, Canada. I just released a new song and am looking for feedback on the vocal mix. I work in Logic Pro, and used EQ, Compressor, De-esser, pitch correction, and a little reverb/chorus on a bus. I also layer my vocals.

I'm very new to mixing my own vocals, so any feedback would be great!



Mic for rap vocals... (uh7k pre)

I've already read all the threads but want to start another to address my specific questions. I am using a uh7000 and am keeping my st69 tube.

I've already owned:
-c214 (liked it)
-ksm42 (sometimes I liked it but wasn't my fav)
-at4047 (didn't really like it that much)
-st69 (sometimes I LOVE it sometimes not as much)

Okay so I'm looking for one of these and am apprehensive hence the thread you see here:

Mic for recording talking and vocals /rap

I have a sure sm58 and a c4000B AKG.
The problem is I like the sure sm58 for listening to myself talk all day. rap music and chorus singing.

So I want a mic like the sm58 thats good for recording talking and vocals and like performance situations.
400-1200 dollar range

I get a lot of sound in my room so that`s why. I like dynamics cause they don`t break but maybe I should move on.
Should I go with hyper cardiod or will the sure ksm9 cut out enough background noise so that I don`t hear my computer or room noise on all the recordings.

AT4050 for Rap and Hip Hop

Alright I've read a lot and seen a lot of people get flamed, but I'm just trying to get answers.

I'll be straight forward. I want to rap, hip hop r&b type stuff. I found good reviews on the AT4050. I found a preAmp Grace m101 , a compressor dbx 160a, then I found an interface called the MOTU UltraLite-mk3.

Now I'm wondering if any of you think this stuff is good? Or what do you think would be best for the AT4050? &Also, if I got the MOTU, does it have a build in compressor and preamp?

HELP! Singing (rapping) techniques while recording

Hi guys, can anyone give my some tips on how i can deliver my rap correctly?

basically I'm going really wild on the mic but when it comes to listening back, it sounds dull and with no effort? Any advice / tips on delivery when recording and/or how to mix it to put life into it?

P.s I'm really new to recording/mixing my own stuff..

Heres an example of my work

Please recommend a mic for rapping/singing (hip hop/dance/rock) - under $400 used/new

I can give you about 5 examples of my vocal style/range, which pretty much summarizes it all. Building Castles's Profile - Indaba Music Most of it isn't really hip hop from these particular examples, but in my music, I do a fair amount of rapping and I sing in every song. Black Holes would be a good song to check out, as it represents both my rapping and my singing. I'm a dynamic singer, so I'll go from fairly soft to really loud in the same phrase.
