CHECK THIS RECORDING VOCAL TECHNIQUE G3KBEATS has found TO BE the most effective method to make vocals CLEAN!

Some people record vocals WITH the singer singing the whole song, record muliple takes (tracks) and then “compress” the best bits together into one track.

Others work line by line, until the vocalist can get it right.

G3KBEATS unites and USES both styles!

WE work in sections.
EXAMPLE:  verse 1, then verse 2, chorus 1, chorus 2, etc.
Within each section we’ll try to get 3 good takes (tracks) and punch in if needed. When you work this way, you and the singer can really get the best outcome on pitch and timing.
you can then really hear the quality in the singers voice built into the song. Studio singing and playing should be precise and controlled, the most attention given to pitch and timing.
[Similar to how movies are made. One scene is shot over and over again, then jumps to the next scene that will occur in that location. When its time to edit, they take the different scenes to flow together smoothly. Live singing is more like theater, where the scenes of the story are performed LIVE.]

When we’re done recording, we edit the 3 tracks into one high quality track, taking the best bits from each. Then pitch correction, eq and effects are applied to give a fresh, custom, unique sound exclusively for each artist.

How to Create a Good Song Mix

A Quick Tutorial

Terms:

Mixer
Track
Reverb

First route all sounds to a track  in the mixer. Next, turn down all the levels and begin to raise them staring with the drums. Then, raise the level of the bass and proceed to amplify brilliant percussion. Continue with percussion and move on to keys, strings, and pads, if present. Vocals shiuld also be added to the mix after the main drums if available. There are general levels at which rach instrument could be set such as a kick drum at -2 db, but your ears should determine the final adjustments and tweaks to volume. However, to prevent distortion, an unwanted artifact in the overall mix, no track levels should exceed 0 db. Aside from audio levels, consider panning instruments either to the left or right. This creates more space in the mix and builds a more dynamic aural presence. Furhermore, effects such as delay and reverb help fill in empty room in the mix so that sound constantly plays. In addition to those effects, other modifiers like choruses, filters, and pitch produce equally as interesting mixes when correctly and inventively applied.
