So I JUST did a demo for a band. Just a quick two song thing, couple hours out the door, bye. Two nights ago I led the singer into the iso booth to do his vox. He could not grasp the concept of staying within 5 feet of the mic. He literally would whisper at two feet and shout at two inches, and insisted he was not conscious of his actions. I pointed out the flaw in the tracks( volume AND tone) and they decided to leave it, based on budget. I almost suggested a hand held mic!(eeeek!) No amount of compression or fader flying could save this track. No time for automation. After the fact, of course the band says the music is awesome but the vocals are off. I provide two mixes, one, vocals up front, one, mixed more evenly, but the vox got lost in a couple spots. Overall they are quite happy with the product. I am not. My question is: in the future, can I prevent this without the use of a hand held? Multi mic setup? Tape a mic to his forehead? Piezo on the larnyx?(hee hee) I usually can coach most people into good technique with ease, I feel like I should have thought of a quick solution.
