Point Blank’s expert sound engineering instructor reveals all
Vocals can be the heart and soul of your mix; the part of the track the ear is immediately drawn to. It’s also one of the hardest parts to mix, with variable volume, timbre and tone throughout a performance. Sitting the vocal within the mix, especially with electronic music, can be a challenge and can make or break your track.
Point Blank’s expert sound engineering instructor Ganesh Singaram (Pharrell Williams, Swedish House Mafia, Kanye West) was the guest on the latest Friday Forum Live. Ganesh went into great depth on vocals, and showed you tips and techniques for balancing vocals including EQ, parallel processing, spatial techniques and more.
Ganesh has also provided a project for you to practice everything he’s talking about – download the project here.
