There are ten very helpful tips to recording better vocals. The first thing you need to be sure to do is to relax. If you are not relaxed, then you will not get the sound you want. The vocalist is likely giving everything they have to the song, do being comfortable is essential for them. Encouraging the singer is another tactic you will want to use. It will give the singer more confidence and will make him sing better.
- It’s important to have everything organized and ready before going into the studio, that way recording goes as smoothly and stress-free as possible.
- Often, artists are too hard on themselves. Relaxing and positivity can go a long way to producing a successful record.
- It’s vital to know your technology, but it’s better to record dry, and add in the effects later so you have the change to remove them if they swamp your track.
“Remember that the vocalist is hopefully pouring their heart and soul into your recording, so needs to feel as comfortable as possible.”
