    Trying to figure out how to mix vocals so they sit perfectly in the mix without sounding harsh or amateur?

    In today's video I break down two powerful (and simple) strategies you can use on every vocal mix you do to give your lead vocals clarity, presence, and an upfront sound.

    The beautiful thing about these two methods is that you can do them in any DAW with the plugins you already own!

  • MIXING VOCALS TO A 2 TRACK: Make Room For Your Vocal

    6:56

    Looking to get more width on your vocals in the mix? There are two simple tools that I use to get the job done.

    Reverb and delay.

    Specifically I want to show you how to layer a filtered reverb with two distinctly different delay sounds to create a wider vocal track with more depth and dimension.

    This works great if you have home recorded vocals that either sound dry or were tracked in a not so great sounding space. With just three simple moves you can open up your vocals and help them fill out the mix nicely.

    If you record your vocals in a home studio, they're going to need a little help to sound professional in the mix.

    No matter how good of a vocal performance you turn in, there is a difference in a raw home studio vocal and polished pro one. But it's not that hard to achieve!

    When I'm mixing home studio vocals there are three distinct moves that I tend to make that can be stunning when implemented well.

    You can do these moves with stock or free plugins (as I do in the video) and they are quick and easy to pull off.

    Each one is relatively subtle and unimpressive, but the combination of all 3 is what takes an average bedroom vocal recording and turns it into a polished professional track!

    Learn how to pick the right EQ every time in this free 4 step course.


    Make Your Vocals Sound Powerful - Using Pitch Shift and Stereo Spread. First,​ make a duplicate of the vocal you want to sound powerful. Then grab your DAW's pitch shift plugin and detune it -3 to -6 semitones. This will give you that deep vocal effect. Add on Reel ADT and spread the sound out with the 2 guitars is better than 1 preset. Make some tweaks if you would like and now you have a powerful layer. Just blend it in at your desired level and you are good to go.

    Vocals are a critical element of your song, but it's often quite difficult to get them to sit in the mix properly.

    In this tutorial, you'll learn some useful techniques to carve out space in your mix for your lead vocal.

    ADSR Instructor Stephen Ellestad demonstrates how to make space with frequency notching, sidechain compression and using compression and predelay to create separation from other elements that share frequencies and real estate in the mix, such as backing vocals or pads.

    As a matter of fact, these same techniques are commonly used for just about any other element that needs priority, especially kicks, basses and lead lines.

    We’re delighted to bring you our first video release with songwriter and record producer Stelios! In this series, we explore the entire process of writing, producing, and mixing the song ‘High Highs to Low Lows’ by the artist Lolo Zouaï. After an overview of his professional background, how he got involved in the project, and the roles undertaken, Stelios describes how the song was written, the basic setups used to record, and changes made along the way. We then take a close look at the Ableton multitrack session, from which he plays the parts and reveals his simple yet effective methods of building and manipulating sounds to create ear-grabbing tones and textures. The true beauty of this project lies in the organic way in which it flourished and the success it garnered despite a low budget, stark arrangement, unrefined edits, sonic artifacts, and basic digital mixing and mastering all done by Stelios!

    Clean Up Your Vocals Using Subtractive EQ | Mix Better Now

    Here's my general strategy and approach for using Subtractive EQ on Vocals in your mix. I use subtractive eq to clean up less than perfectly recorded vocals. By removing things like mud, boxy-ness and subsonic low-end build up, I'm able to let the vocals blossom in an organic way which in turn makes them sound brighter and more present in the mix. The techniques I go over are applicable to any other instruments in your mixes. I had numerous requests from viewers to create this specific tutorial, so I hope you all learn something from it!

  • Tips for Mixing Acapella Vocals

    Instant access to every in-depth mixing course from Matthew Weiss:
    Learn how to use EQ and get better mixes:

    A video on some of the challenges and approaches for mixing acapella vocals.



    Transcript excerpt:

    Hey, guys. Matthew Weiss here — Coming soon, I've got a Mixing with EQ tutorial, and there's going to be a link right here to that. This is going to be a little precursor teaser to that, but also some really, really valuable information.

    So, at the very least you're going to learn something, and at the most you're going to learn a whole lot depending on what you choose to do. But anyways, here we go.

    What we're going to be talking about is an A Capella vocal. Now, A Capella vocals are a unique and difficult challenge, because there's nothing to really hide any of the imperfections of the recording, and on top of that, we have to give the vocal space, and if the space is not good, then we might have trouble.

    So, for example, in this particular record, there were no room mics up.

    [vocals]

    Okay, so it's a good recording. The actual dry vocal is sounding pretty good. My first move here is to – first, I just want to figure out the vocal itself. So, I'm going to take a compressor and just do some compression here. I think it hits on the bigger parts.

    [vocals with compression]

    And I have the attack set pretty long. 20 ms. I have the release set pretty long. 76 ms here. I have it in Opto mode, so it's not the most aggressive compression, but it's also not the least aggressive compression. It's sort of in the middle. Just because this is a particularly dynamic performance, and ideally what I would actually do is a lot of rides, but this will also help to thicken the overall vocal sound.

    So then the next thing is going to be some EQ. There's a lot of mid-range push in Barbara's voice here, like right around 1kHz. It's probably some kind of a Neumann microphone recording her, which tends to have a lot of that 1kHz, and she has a lot of that in her voice naturally. It's also deficient in the treble range. I have the analyzer turned on, so we'll see that right here.

    [vocals]

    So, as you can see, there's a whole lot of buildup in this upper mid-range area. The buildup is not consistent, so what I'm going to do – whenever there's tonal inconsistencies, my thought is multi-band compression. So what I've got going on here is some compression triggering from the upper-mid range so that when she hits some of those strident notes, it's going to pull it down, but overall I'm going to be boosting a little bit more of it.

    So, before.

    [vocals]

    After.

    [vocals after multi-band compression]

    So I get as much treble and upper-mid presence in there as possible without making the voice sound painful.

    [vocals]

    Sounds good. Really good singer.

    But now, it's completely dry. So what are we going to do? Well, first thing we could do is we could send off to a reverb. So I've got a really nice software reverb here. A Lexicon Hall reverb. Let's hear how that sounds.

    [vocals with reverb]

    So, I don't love it. I don't hate it. I think it would be a really good sound if I wanted to make this sort of like a pop type of tune, like you know, if this was an A Capella from like, Ellie Goulding or something like that, I would love that kind of a reverb for her. It just goes with her for whatever reason, and it sort of works with the pop aesthetic, but it sounds very unrealistic. It's clearly an artificial reverb, and I don't know if I totally dig that.

    So my next option is to use a convolution reverb. This is also a concert hall, but it is a convolution rather than an algorithm, and it sounds like this.

    [vocals]

    So, I don't love that, and I don't hate that either. I think of the two, I actually prefer the algorithm, just because I think it's a sweeter sound, but the convolution is a little bit more realistic. That said, I'm not totally thrilled with either.

    Do we have another option? Well, there were some mics up on the piano. The piano is not in use in this segment, so maybe I can take the piano mics and turn them into my room ambience. Let's hear how that sounds.

    [vocal ambience plays]

    Here's with the vocal.

    [vocals, piano mics up]

    Alright, so that's clearly the most realistic sounding, but it sounds a little bit weird because it's resonating inside the piano, but maybe I could EQ it in a way to make it sound more natural.

    It's true, an EQ can be used to boost and cut frequencies, but it's in the cutting (the subtracting) that we get the most power out of the tool.

    From opening up headroom, to gaining clarity, to having your tracks sound more natural - subtractive EQ is a powerful strategy that every mixer should employ.

    This might sound offensive but I think we need to stop worshipping famous mix engineers.

    When I look around the YouTube audio engineer space it seems that all anyone wants to talk about is mixing.

    And even more specifically, famous mix engineers.

    Now don't get me wrong, I think many of these engineers are phenomenal at what they do (and some are my friends) but are we overvaluing them?

  • How to fit vocals in a mix using only faders

    Fitting vocals in a mix doesn't begin with EQ or compression. It doesn't begin with fancy all-in-one plugins like Greg Wells Voicecentric, JST Howard Benson, or Noveltech Vocal Enhancer.

    It begins with the simple fader and applying the correct strategy to build your mix around the vocal so everything fits nicely around it.

  • One Minute EQ Trick - Using Mid/Side EQ to Make Lead Vocals Cut Through a Dense Vocal Mix

    1:09

    This is one of the tricks I show you inside the EQ Strategies One Hour Mix Walkthrough( but I thought I'd condense it down and give you the cliff notes.

    Instead of just using a normal stereo EQ cut in the high-mids on the backing vocals in order to give the lead vocal some room you can actually use mid/side EQ to do the same.

    Now you're not only giving the lead vocal its space in the frequency spectrum but also in the stereo spectrum. Might be a bit hard to hear without the context of the mix but pushing the backing vocals to the sides of the mix really opens up space for the lead vocal to cut through, especially when you have a lot of other instruments going on as well.

    It's very fun to experiment with and it gives you new and fun possibilities with EQ.
