What does it mean to stack vocals?
What does it mean to “stack” a vocal? Stacking vocals in a very general sense just means having multiple vocal tracks in your session. When you’ve got two vocals playing back at the same time, you add complexity and density to your mix.
Should you layer vocals?
Loosely layered vocals will cause you to lose the intimacy you are trying to create. There is an effect you should be aware of though when layering these parts. If your performance is so tight then your vocals will start to sound phasey. Almost canceling out the center image.
Does Eminem double his vocals?
I bring Eminem up, because he’s talked in length about how many takes (more than 10) he does to get his vocal doubles sounding precise. I found this vocal only track of Eminem’s Lose Yourself (released in 2002) and you can hear the vocal double track as I defined it earlier.
Do rappers double their vocals?
Rappers and singers have traditionally recorded vocal doubles (informally called “vocal dubs”) on the ending phrases every bar or half a bar..
How many layers do vocals have?
I sometimes use five layers during the chorus, or at a pivotal moment in the song. I use the best main vocal track take – or comp the best parts of all my takes if things aren’t too terrible (I am not a singer) – in the center, and use my two runner-up takes for space.
What level should I record vocals 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. This is to keep an even balance on the level of the vocals without distortion.
Should vocals be recorded dry?
Vocals should always be recorded dry. Meaning that there are no time based effects such as reverb and delay on the track when you record. This is due to the fact that adding these effects would hide performance issues when tracking resulting in poor recordings that would need to be re recorded.

Try Adding a Subtle Chorus Effect. Another way to give the vocal a bit of depth and shimmer is to apply subtle chorusing. Again, you don’t want the effect to be noticeable. Add a stereo chorus to the vocal and increase the wetness until you notice the effect, then back it off a touch.
