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 is tube microphone?

Can you make bad vocals good?
Bringing in great singers to improve the sound of poor ones is an old studio trick and has worked to the benefit of more than a few ‘stars’. Just be careful not to take things too far and ditch your diva’s voice entirely when you’re mixing the vocals together.
What decibel should vocals be at?
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. This is to keep an even balance on the level of the vocals without distortion.
How do you record vocals in your bedroom?
The mic should be roughly in the center of the room. The closer you are to the walls, the more likely you are to capture reflections and unwanted low-end build up. Avoid corners at all costs. Make sure you set up a pop filter and, preferably, a portable vocal booth like the Reflexion Filter if you have one.
