How loud should my vocals be in a mix?

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.
How can EQ reduce sibilance?
Sibilance sounds are generally made by pressing air through the lips or tongue, so setting the mic up close to the vocalist’s mouth can accentuate them. By angling the microphone a bit lower, toward the vocalists’ throat, we can decrease the sharpness of these sounds.
Does a pop filter reduce sibilance?
Another note is that pop filters, while great for stopping those “P” and “B” sounds (among others), don’t typically help with sibilance. So while you should still (almost) always use one, don’t use it for the purposes of helping with sibilance. A final note: be sure not to over-compress tracks with sibilance problems.
What is sibilance audiophile?

While we all produce a little bit of sibilance when speaking, some people’s sibilance is worse than others.
