Recording vocals (tracking vocals), is a very important step in the beginning stages of your track (song).
Equipment we use:
Rode K2 mic/ Rode NTK mic
UA 710 twin finity/ UA solo 610
Apollo 8 Quad Interface
Before we start mixing, we always take away all those unwanted and annoying breaths that can ruin the great vocals you just recorded. Mixing is the step many new beginners tend to miss. Think of mixing as if you were cooking a meal, where you would take all your ingredients and throw them in the pot, just because you did that doesn't mean your are done cooking. In mixing, you have to play with plugins and the volumes levels until you acquire your desired sound. (music production)
Mastering is the last step in creating your song. In this process, you are leveling the song to perfect it according to your ears. (music production)
