Should vocals be louder than the beat?
How loud should vocals be compared to instrumental. Vocals, especially the lead vocal should be louder than musical elements but a tad bit behind the drum transients in my opinion. But if you have an instrumental that has already been mastered and hyper-compressed which is often the case.
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.
Where should vocals sit in a mix?
Tip #1 – Here’s a top notch trick to get your vocals to sit on top of the mix nicely. Send everything but the vocals to their own aux, and apply a very subtle compressor (only a few dB’s reduction). Side chain the lead vocals to this compressor. This will dip the track by a 2 or 3 dB’s every time the vocals come in.
What frequency do vocals sit?
Male vocals will tend to have their fundamental frequencies between 100–300 Hz, while the fundamental frequencies of a female vocal will usually fall between 200–400 Hz.
How do you add warmth to vocals?
Use Parallel Processing Instead of adding all the processing on the track itself, experiment with parallel processing. I like a good LA2A in parallel on vocals, sometimes with an analog-style EQ that’s boosted in the low-mids. Added underneath, it can give your vocals all the warmth you need.
Should Kick be louder than snare?
The snare is the foundation of the backbeat, and typically one of the loudest elements in the mix. Next, bring the kick fader up until it sounds almost as loud as the snare. It should be loud enough that the low frequencies are rich and powerful, but not so loud that it masks the bottom-end of the snare drum.
Should you master a beat before vocals?
Definitely record your vocals to the beat first, then master everything together. There are situations where a producer will provide a finished instrumental track that someone else gets and writes a lyric to.
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.
