Any sound engineer will tell you that the human voice is hardest to attach to the elements of sound processing, so they try to record the vocals so that its processing is minimized.
The realization of such an idea is possible only on professional equipment, but its absence does not indicate the impossibility of obtaining a good result.
You will need
- Software Steinberg Cubase.
First of all, vocals are recorded in mono modeWith a discredit rate of 44.1 kHz and 16 bit, the sound level should not exceed "-3 dB". After recording a vocal part, save the track in the wav format.
Open it in any audio application thatProduces a sound recording work. There are many such applications at the moment, preference is given to Steinberg Cubase. In this program, you need to level the volume of the voice on the record so that you do not hear a noticeable difference when listening. The professionalism of the singer does not always allow him to keep at the same distance from the microphone, so do not forget about this factor.
To fine-tune the sound of a voice,Use EQ. If you've ever seen in Winamp'e equalizer, you'll understand what you need to do. This process is basic and rightfully considered the most difficult. You can use the standard presets, which are in various additions to audio programs, but you should count on your hearing, because The program works only with computer algorithms.
To edit the sound of a voice, you should pay attention to the frequencies and in what cases they need to be changed:
200 Hz - increasing this parameter gives a feeling of completeness of the vocal-
3000 Hz - an increase in this parameter emphasizes the aspiration of the vocal parts-
5000 Hz - increasing this parameter adds intelligibility to voice-
7000 Hz - a decrease in this parameter will affect positively on whistling consonants-
10000 Hz - increase of this parameter allows clarifying the vocal.
Next, you need to give the vocal effectPanning. What it is? Remember, the vocals were recorded in mono mode, and this effect allows you to set the vocal stereo processing. To do this, you can use any stereo-series filter, now from there is a huge amount, for example, Blue Tubes Stereo Imager. Use presets by default, without editing them.
After creating a stereo mode, you need to addVocal of "lamp heat". If you did not already know, tube amplifiers give a "softer and greasy" effect of presence. Several decades have passed, but professionals always look in the direction of the "lamp" record. It is recommended to use the tools of Steinberg DaTube and Steinberg Magneto.
It remains to embellish your vocal partEcho and reverb effects. For the echo, you can use any tool - their number is simply inspiring, and as a rever you can use Waves True Verb.
