The #1 Thing You Must Do After Recording Vocals (Ignore At Your Own Risk)
We’ve been rapping on about vocals this week because of David Glenn’s Mixing Vocals series.
Today is not different, and it’s VERY important you pay attention.
There’s this thing you have to do after you record vocals. Even before you think about making it sound better with EQ and compression.
What is it?
Ugh, snooze. Boring. Get out of here. I don’t want to listen to that.
Sorry, but it’s true. I’m not even talking about heavy editing.
There’s just one thing that’ll make your vocal much more fun to work with.
Yep. That’s it.
If you remove the silences of the song.
See, if you don’t edit out those silences and start adding compression and other processing, all those noises won’t be so quiet anymore. You’ll be adding gain to them just like you’re adding gain to the actual vocal phrases.
So take five minutes and carefully strip the silences between the phrases of the vocal.
It’ll make your vocals that much more fun to mix.
