Why do my vocals sound muffled?
When recorded vocals sound muffled, it’s usually because there is too much energy in the lower frequencies. For a really good quick lesson on what a frequency is, see our post: Good Equalization and Frequency Basics.
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.
