How can I make my voice sweet and soft?

- lip buzzing.

What voice effects do rappers use?
The best vocal effects for rappers include de-essing, pitch shifting, time alignment, and parallel processing. Other great plugins that can help improve rap vocals include stutter and reverse effect, vocal delay throws, saturation, submixes, and distortion.
How do you balance vocals in a mix?
Tip #1 – Here’s a top notch trick to get your vocals to sit on top of the mix nicely. Send everything but the vocals to their own aux, and apply a very subtle compressor (only a few dB’s reduction). Side chain the lead vocals to this compressor. This will dip the track by a 2 or 3 dB’s every time the vocals come in.
What voice effects do singers use?
The options available for vocal effects are broad. They include reverb, delay, choir, distortion, compression, gain automation, de-essing, EQ, pitch shift, and echo.
Should you compress or EQ 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.
How loud should 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 in mono or stereo?
If you record one vocalist, your vocals should be mono. However, if you record two vocalists or more or if you record in a room with unique acoustics, the vocals should be stereo. Moreover, recording vocals in mono makes them sound powerful, clear, and upfront.
How do you fix harsh vocals?
- Understand The Problem.
- Use a De-Esser to Tame Harsh Frequencies.
- Use a Narrow EQ to Cut Harsh Frequencies.
- Use a Focused Dynamic EQ.
- Use Clip Gain and Volume Automation to Manually Reduce Volume.
