I've recorded some vocals which sound good, but they just don't stand out in the mix, even though they're panned dead centre, and everything else is panned out.
I saw Inside Edition on ABC last night, where the host (Deborrah Norville) recorded a track with dance producer/remixer Junoir Vasquez.
He made the biggest deal about how evey artist, including divas like Whitney Houston, sound terrible until they are doubled, or even tripled.
What is he talking about? Is doubling simply having the vocals playing from 2 tracks simultaniously instead of one? Is there a delay?
Is it actually a plugin or effect? How can I make my vocals (which DO sound good) sound stronger, more present?
I use Cubase VST.
My mic is an AKG C1000S
I use an Art Tube Pac preamp/Compressor
