Recording Vocals

Hi everyone,

Recording Vocals is one of the main tasks in the studio or at your home studio. Many of the starters or home studio owners ask me how to get that studio quality vocals on my sound interface because I only have a basic Sound card which is the Focusrite scarlett 2i2 etc., 

Well, its not about a basic sound card or advanced sound card, its about your ROOM!

Your room has all unwanted reflection which is also recorded into your mic, If the room is not treated well, you will surely have a bad sounding recorded track on your DAW. If you wanted to get that Tight clean signal like the Studio and know the real work flow, come and attend our upcoming now. Limited Seats only!

Recording on your DAW

Hi Folks,

I know that there are many starters wanted to create their music and produce high quality output using their basic entry level audio interface. But many tend to misunderstand the correct input during recording. They simply record with hot high signal level and it sound to distort their tracks and they jump to insert some plugins pushing even further without knowing how to read the PEAK and RMS meters on their DAW.

No matter what DAW you use, great sound comes from 

  1. Mic Placement
  2. Good Cables
  3. Setting correct Gain Control on your Pre AMP
  4. Using EQ effectively
  5. Compressing and setting the levels correctly

Sometimes, compression is not needed it the sound sits properly in your mix! There is no Fixed rule in your Audio mixing. If you wanted to

  1. learn the proper way to get the best 
  2. get pro results using your audio interface
  3. learn to tweak your EQ and use compression in detail

Live Drum Recording

Live Drum Recording

Live Drum Recording is always a challenge. The best part is placing the microphones is the key thing. Because it can lead to phase cancellation or creating a bad sound which you might not like in your project. But many of them has asked me which mic to select for what drum and how to place it?

Well, its not about your costly microphones, its about your kit, your Room and how good are you at placing your mic to get THAT tone in your song. The important thing is recording the Drum kit is getting a good GAIN STAGING and what Pre-Amps you use, it need not be a costly pre-amp, but a industry standard one is always recommended to get a good descent sound in your project or song.

Its not that you should keep 8 mics as standard rule of the thumb for a kit. I have recorded a entire whole Drum kit just with ONE MIC in my studio. Cant believe it? Its sound awesome!

Adding Analog Warmth

Adding Analog Warmth

Hi, I know that we are all in the Digital era of recording our music using modern audio interfaces with great quality AD/ DA convertors, but no matter we have high end gears, we still lack that smooth Analog tape Saturation tone in our mixes. That’s why all the major Audio Plug-in companies sell Analog Tape Saturation plugins to use in our Digital Recording medium, one of my favourite Analog recorder is the STUDER 24- track machine and TASCAM 4- Track Open Reel recorders. I still cant forget the tone how it sounds great. Please do what the video of how the Reel are manufactured and used.

Mic Pre and Compressor

Hi Folks,

Many people have this question of using a Hardware compressor or a software compressor in their recording chain. 

Mic Pre & Compressor

Well, it all depends on how you want to record in your DAW. Remember, mostly your MicPre signal is recorded dry in your Signal path straight into your DAW without any processing. What we all do in the insert are all POST work not PRE.  So if you want your compressor to act during the recording stage, you will need a Hardware Compressor in your chain like your old school console style of tracking (Recording). 

But be sure of the correct settings in your compressor before you hit the RECORD button! Later, this take cannot be UN-DONE! 

One Simple TIP which i do during Recording:

  1. Record MIC 1 directly using your PREAMP straight into your DAW
  2. Recording MIC 2 using the Hardware COMPRESSOR and then to your DAW

By doing this, you will have 2 audio Tracks, so that you can blend or decide which you want in your Project.
