I got an Apollo Twin MKII Solo (all stock plugins) running into a Shure SM7B with a Trace Audio mod (+25dB clean boost) and my mic is inside a Kaotica 7B since I can't really treat this place well. I can do that after we buy a house but for here, I need to occupy as little space as possible.
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 recorded vocals lately, and cannot get rid of aggressive high frequencies that weren't there before...
You can hear the main nasty frequency around 3-4Khz and some other ones from1 to 3 kHZ ( audio: Creep_VXREC_WA87ChorusAnnecy 1&2 )
I recorded the same vocals 1 month ago in another flat, and it was fine ( see audio "Creep_VXREC_WA87ChorusDundee").
I'm new here.
Getting ready to record vocals for my band's album.
The genre is progressive metal.. Vocal style is mix of James Labrie, Ozzy, Dio..
My current setup is :
RODE NT1a mic --> Groove Tubes brick preamp --> EMU 0404 USB (A/D) ---> usb into PC--> Reaper DAW
Hello there, I just recent bought some new equipment hoping to start recording vocals at home!
I went to my local music store, the clerk there helped me out with selecting some equipment based on my budget and requirements.
I run a desptop with Windows Seven installed ( i also have a laptop with vista installed).
