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:

- c214 again
- at4050
- Warbler 87 imitation

NRC - defining and choosing proper bass traps

@Brien Holcombe

Hi Brien... :)
I'm looking into some commercially-made traps to improve the room I'm now in ( SonoLite Bass Traps), and I was wondering, if I shot you some NRC numbers, if perhaps you would be kind enough to translate what these numbers actually mean.
This would help me, as well as potentially helping other RO members, or, for those who may be doing an internet search on the topic.

Question on Sizing Corner Bass Traps

Hello guys, I used to come to this forum like 3 years ago(don't remember my other account) but the thing is I learnt a lot of important stuff and for that I thank you guys.

Now I have a question about corner bass traps in small spaces with 90 degrees angles. Since bass Wavesare really big, obviously there's a minimum for bass trap sizing. What is the smallest size for rockwool-stacked DIY corner bass trap in a small mixing room situation?

I've already did a search and didn't find this particular information.

Thanks in advance,

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.

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 pre amp?

Questions about RAP vocals (PANNING, compression, etc..)

Hey, this is my first post so i apologize if i sound like a noob. I'm still pretty new to recording and have cheap equipment but am surprised at how i can get it to sound... SO FAR. I have limited access to a computer so i can only check replies every few days if that. Anyways, onto the quesitons.
