Why are my vocals not clear?
This can be caused by a number of different things, such as not using the correct mic for the singer (yes, some mics that sound awesome on one person may not sound good on someone else). Generally speaking, the best kind of microphone for recording clear sounding vocals is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone.

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.
Can you fix bad vocals?
To do it yourself, it’s a simple matter of stretching the vocal in your DAW and turning off the timestretching. You can also try formant shifting and using a plugin to alter the character of your singer’s voice, going so far as to turn a female singer into a male one and vice versa.
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.
How do you add warmth to vocals?
Use Parallel Processing Instead of adding all the processing on the track itself, experiment with parallel processing. I like a good LA2A in parallel on vocals, sometimes with an analog-style EQ that’s boosted in the low-mids. Added underneath, it can give your vocals all the warmth you need.
