If you record, mix, or produce vocals in any way then this video is a MUST watch for you. Vocals fight for space in your song with anything else in the midrange. Things like instruments, synths, top basses – all kinds of stuff. This is called masking. It’s super important for your vocal to be clear so listeners can hear the lyrics and vibe with your message. Old-school techniques like using a compressor to duck the midrange instruments, or boosting the vocal to “cut through” the mix always result in undesirable side-effects that damage your carefully constructed mix. Tune in and see a new approach that has ALL the upside with no downside.
