Reasons for struggling with vocal track mixdown


Vocal tracks are the key to all quality for musicians who make songs. Even if the backtrack (Oke) looks cool just by using the DAW presets, there are many worries that the vocals do not match the image.

The reason why only vocal tracks do not match the image

The main reason why vocals aren't exactly what you imagined , even if the finish is almost as good as a professional.

(1) In the first place, the recording of a song can be said to be the ultimate live instrument.

(1) The price difference between microphones and preamplifiers is so large that it will die.

② Recording environment is too different

③ There is a difference in engineer's technique & experience value

④ I have never thought about audio restoration (sound quality correction)

The quality difference of the analog part is remarkable

The quality of analog equipment is important for recording songs and acoustic instruments. Professionals generously use condenser mics and mic preamps that cost hundreds of thousands of yen. You can use plug-ins that are equivalent to professional effects, but the reality is that recording with high-end equipment is a very difficult task for amateurs.

Recently, there are plug-ins that emulate not only mic pres but also such high-end mics.

Still, if the quality of the original material is poor, there is nothing you can do about it.

I am sometimes asked to mix by users who request mastering and restoration (noise removal and voice restoration), and I often use preamps that emulate NEVE using UAD's Unison technology. However, even if the sound is made closer to the image, if the material itself is bad, the total quality will almost always be "reasonable".

Audio restoration allows you to get more professional quality by precisely eliminating the negative elements of vocal recording. There are many factors that reduce the quality of casually recorded vocal material, such as clip noise, lip noise, rubbing noise from clothes, and blowing.

The quality of music works that makes a big difference by accumulating small differences

Top professional and amateur DAWs are the same. There is no big difference except in the Protools HDX environment where a large number of plug-ins can be used at the same time. Restoration work is essential for amateurs who are not blessed with a recording environment. RX is difficult until you get used to it, but if you are making music with a focus on live sounds including vocals, let's introduce it and master how to use it.
