How to Record Vocals in Your Home Studio, Even If You Don’t Have Fancy Equipment [VIDEO]


If you’re exhausted with recording vocals that sound thin and harsh, you’re going to like today’s free lesson on how to record vocals more effectively from your home studio.

I already talked about how you can coach your vocalist to give you a better performance in my article, How To Get a Great Vocal Performance, Even With an Insecure Singer.

Today, I’m going to share a video from the upcoming Expert Home Vocals course that teaches you the few things to keep in mind to get a clear and present vocal recording.

These are the same techniques I use, whether I’m recording from home or at a studio. In addition, you’ll hear audio examples from both male and female vocalists in genres ranging from punk to jazzy folk to show you the results of following the techniques I demonstrate in the video.

In this video you’ll also learn:

  • How to prepare your vocalist for a great recording session
  • How to make sure your vocalist is comfortable during the session
  • How to position the microphone in front of the vocalist
  • How to communicate effectively with the singer
  • How to find a good starting point for your vocal mic
  • Microphone placement ideas to get the best sound out of your vocalist
  • How to use acoustic treatment to get a better source sound
  • How to understand and reduce the acoustic reflections in your room from going into your vocal mic
  • How to use a pop filter to reduce the plosives while using it as a target for your singer
  • How to use the proximity effect to your advantage

Btw, I chose this video thumbnail on purpose. Enjoy!
