Why are my S’s so sharp?
When we are talking about refining an /s/ like you describe, this all auditory work combined with subtle tongue, lip, and perhaps jaw changes. Usually a sharp or whistling sound means that the client is squeezing too hard, or lifting the tongue too near the palate at the tip.
How do I stop the microphone popping up?
The Primary Fix: Get It Right at the Source
- Enable the low-frequency roll-off switch on the mic or preamp.
- Learn not to sing plosive sounds so forcefully.
- Use an omnidirectional mic.
- Position yourself the correct distance from the mic.
- Use a properly positioned pop filter.
- Sharp highpass filter.
- Fade in on the pop.
What are P Pops?
A bigger problem is the effect of plosives, a bassy, often distorted sound, that results when an air blast from the mouth goes into the microphone. The most common source is the letter P, which is why plosives are sometimes generically referred to as P-Pops.
What frequency is the p sound?
The consonants (k, p, s, t, etc.) are predominantly found in the frequency range above 500 Hz. More specifically, in the 2 kHz-4 kHz frequency range.
Is Pro Tools good for recording vocals?
None of these DAWs have the speed and fluidity of Pro Tools when it comes to recording vocals. It also has an extremely nifty comping feature so you can record continuously into different “takes” and then easily choose your favourite take from a simple drop down menu.
What is the best buffer size for recording?
A good buffer size for recording is 128 samples, but you can also get away with raising the buffer size up to 256 samples without being able to detect much latency in the signal. You can also decrease the buffer size below 128, but then some plugins and effects may not run in real time.
How do you cross fade in Pro Tools?
Place the cursor in the Region at the point where you want the fade to start or finish: press ‘G’ for a fade-out or ‘D’ for a fade-in, and Pro Tools will create a fade appropriately. To create a crossfade, highlight where you want the crossfade to go and press the ‘F’ key.
