How do you EQ loud vocals?
Use a Narrow EQ to Cut Harsh Frequencies Using a narrow Q, sweep across and find harsh resonances in the high-end (usually between 2-10khz) and reduce them as you see fit using your ears’ judgement. Keep in mind that doing this will affect that frequency’s presence throughout the entire song.
Do you compress or EQ vocals first?
Each position, EQ pre (before) or EQ post (after) compression produces a distinctly different sound, a different tonal quality, and coloration. As a rule, using EQ in front of your compressor produces a warmer, rounder tone, while using EQ after your compressor produces a cleaner, clearer sound.
Can you make bad vocals good?
Bringing in great singers to improve the sound of poor ones is an old studio trick and has worked to the benefit of more than a few ‘stars’. Just be careful not to take things too far and ditch your diva’s voice entirely when you’re mixing the vocals together.
Why do my vocals sound amatuer?
Another reason you may hear vocals sticking out so much is if they were recorded over a ‘beat’ or a pre-made composition. It’s hard to make room for/blend a vocal into an instrumental track that’s already been produced since you have a lot less control over individual instruments.
Why do my vocals sound fuzzy?
Reasons for distortion A microphone or sound source, like a computer, is overloaded with sound. For example, the microphone can’t handle the volume level which it’s detecting and thus distorts the sound that it’s sending into the sound system. An instrument sends too hot of a signal into the system.
How loud should my vocals be in a mix?
Every vocal is different and every song is different as well. But generally speaking, lead vocal should be moderately loud or the loudest element next to your drums in your mix.
Should I mix vocals first?
mix whatever you consider the most important first. I usually start with making a “bed” for the vocals from a pad, guitar, bass, kick etc and then make the lead vocals sit on top of that.
What goes first EQ or crossover?
EQs and other devices should always be in Line before the actual Crossover. Most DSP Units offer Input EQ which is essiantially that.
How do I compress vocals like a pro?
This is how to compress vocals using a lighter, more musical approach:
- First of all, load up a compressor.
- Next, lower the threshold and raise the ratio to extreme settings.
- Start with a medium attack time around 15ms and adjust to taste.
- Dial in a medium release time of 40ms and adjust from there.

Can AutoTune make a bad singer good?
Unfortunately not. AutoTune can’t fix anyone’s live performance since it can only tune you up to the closest note in the scale. But, through correctly training your voice and ears, you can take anyone from not being able to sing to being able to perform live with AutoTune correctly.
