Why is my voice so quiet?
Sometimes a quiet speaking voice has a physical cause, such as a weakness in the vocal cords or a respiratory condition. Similarly, some people just tend to mumble or talk too fast if they’re not concentrating on speaking clearly. If you don’t talk to people very often, your voice may grow weak from lack of use.
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.
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.
Why do my vocals sound muffled?
When recorded vocals sound muffled, it’s usually because there is too much energy in the lower frequencies. For a really good quick lesson on what a frequency is, see our post: Good Equalization and Frequency Basics.

Is a soft voice attractive?
According to The Royal Society Publishing, “Women with relatively high-pitched voices are typically perceived as more feminine, younger and more attractive than women with low-pitched voices”. However, at the same time, several studies suggest that women with lower-pitched voices are seen as more ‘sexy’.
Why do I hear myself so loud?
Autophony is the unusually loud hearing of a person’s own voice. Possible causes are: The “occlusion effect”, caused by an object, such as an unvented hearing aid or a plug of ear wax, blocking the ear canal and reflecting sound vibration back towards the eardrum.
Is it bad to be soft spoken?
Being soft-spoken is not a bad thing. You’re probably a wonderful listener and people love talking to you. But sometimes, we need to speak with a louder volume so that people can actually hear the important things we have to say.
