Why is my logic track so quiet?
“Quiet” tracks is very common if you’re new at this, or don’t have much mixing experience. What’s happening is that your peak levels are high, but the average levels (which the ear perceives as “volume”) are low in comparison. So, you need to reduce the peaks, and bring up the average level.
Why are my recorded vocals so quiet?
There are several reasons to explain the lower volume of your recording, the most important factors are: the microphone, the interface(if you use one), the editing and what you want to record (loud or soft vocals).
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 dB should vocals be in a mix?
If you mix them too loudly, they will stick out. What dB should vocals be recorded at? You should record vocals at an average of -18dB for 24-bit resolution. The loudest parts of the recording should peak at -10dB and be lowest at -24dB.
