Any tips for Recording?
This weekend will be my 1st recording session being the vocalist; and as I've had studio experience as a bass player, I've never been the guy in the vocal booth. I don't want to be one who needs tons of overdubs with the "meter running" $$$ wise at the studio. Or worse, have a product we're not completely happy with. I've been sticking with cool water for drinks, and no food for hours before..I'm doing the volume 1 warm up in the car drive over. Anything else I should do? Plus what are thoughts on double-tracking the lead vocal? I hate the sound of the doubling effect (jane's addiction "chances" comes to mind) but do want a big vocal sound. (shinedown, etc) Are those effects and double tracks? Or is there more I should do with my voice? Thanks!
