What's up with the weak singers trend ?

Member for

Hi gang,

Yeah I just got fed up with too many youtube videos of weak signers in my feed.
What I mean is good pitch be not pushing the notes and not even opening the mouth correctly and sounding like falseto all the time ...
Is it me who is out of touch or is it just not how to properly sing..
I mean with no PA they could not even sing to a fire

I didn't want to put names but I have no choice if you want to know what I mean.

New singer trying to understand the process

Member for

Hey everyone. I am new to this forum. I have just been in a pro recording studio for the second time and my tracks have come back obviously compressed and sounding dull sound wise and fairly quiet... Do you know what I have to be saying back to the studio to get a louder, crisper sound? I know I am capable of a good, strong, crystal clear vocal so I am wondering why I sound crushed and dull. What have they done?

Can A Group Of Bad Singers Sound Good Together?

Member for

Hi, I am trying to have a hook to a song sound crowd-like, but it is out of my vocal range, and Im guessing it will also be out of the vocal range of friends who I'll recruit to record it with me. It is like a screaming/chant, with a pretty high note at the end. I'm wondering, if I combine all of the "bad singers" together, can I end up achieving a good sound when the vocals are all put together, high note and all? Also, how many people would I need to make this work, and would it be better to record them individually are together? Thanks a lot for the help!

I'm new and I need your help! I'm a young singer from Switzerland. Though I know how to sing, I really don't know how to mix and master the records.
Beside my band I'm working on a project where I cover a few songs and I need someone who wants to mix my vocals.
Feel free to mix the uploaded songs.
They're "Symptom of the Universe" by Black Sabbath and "Dazed and Confused" by Led Zeppelin.

Ribbon vs Condenser, which mic is best for singer

Ribbon vs Condenser, Please help choose which mic is best for singer

Here are two versions of the same song, written and performed by a client of mine.

We decided to try two lead vocal tracks during pre - production, ( we're not sure of either one yet) - on one take we used a condenser on the vocal, and on the other, we used a ribbon.

There are certain/different things that I like - and mildly dislike - about each one of them.

4 mics, good singers and you get this

Member for

We read constantly about tiny tweaks the need for mega mics, the need for exotic treatment and how multiple mics in a room colour the sound etc etc. Then you hear stuff like this and it just goes out the window. 4 mics in the right place, good singers and a brilliant arrangement.

Recording classical baritone singer

Member for

8 years

There have been many threads on this across the forum, but most of the ones I found are a bit old, so hear me out!

I'm a baritone singer and perform opera, art songs, and early music. My voice is perhaps medium for an opera singer (large for an early music singer). I'm looking for equipment I can use to record lessons and rehearsals, so that I can see how changes in technique come across to other listeners. Ideally I'd also be able to use these recordings for sending to conductors.

How to master a folk singer/guitarist?

Hi all,

Just joined; my first post. I'm hoping for some remastering advice on this project. I've done loads of recording, but this only once before. There's 11 songs, all live off the floor.

All the raw files are now perfectly edited, and sonically, it's as good as I can make it. There's 2 channels only; 1 acoustic gtr (bridge pickup), 1 vox (Shure SM57). The original master is a Portastudio cassette tape from 1986. But it has great potential. I have loads of great tools at my disposal, just not much clue what to do.
