Should you stereo spread vocals?
Separate stereo – You might be tempted to put a doubler or a stereo spread on the main vocal track. Don’ t. Send your main vocal to a separate bus so you can keep the punchiness of the main vocal track with some extra stereo spread from the bus underneath.

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.
Should vocals be louder than the beat?
How loud should vocals be compared to instrumental. Vocals, especially the lead vocal should be louder than musical elements but a tad bit behind the drum transients in my opinion. But if you have an instrumental that has already been mastered and hyper-compressed which is often the case.
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.
Why do my vocals sound bad?
If your vocals are recorded in a bad room, it’s extremely obvious by the end of the mix. The room that an instrument is recorded in always changes the tone. This is ESPECIALLY true for vocals. Room reflections can also cause compression and pitch correction to sound unnatural.
What effects to add to vocals?
The options available for vocal effects are broad. They include reverb, delay, choir, distortion, compression, gain automation, de-essing, EQ, pitch shift, and echo.
