Recording Vocals: Right... From the Start
In today’s world of perfect vocal performances, it’s hard to know what’s real and what’s not. There’s Auto-Tune, there’s Melodyne, and a million other tricks to help finesse an imperfect vocal performance... but before you break open the bag of tricks, it’s important to start with the best possible recording you can get!
If your attitude is “I’ll fix it in the mix,” I would humbly suggest that you try the pleasure of getting it right from the get-go, so that you don’t have to worry about a bad recording later. Even in this day and age, it still holds true that the better you record your vocal, the better it will sound after all is said and done, or rather, “sung and done!”
