4 ways to improve your vocal recordings.

If you’re just starting to record your own tracks or have been for awhile you may have ran into the problem of your vocals not sounding loud enough with out turning them up to the point where they sound bad. Some of it can be caused by certain frequency ranges being mixed to high in the beat, using a microphone not designed for studio vocal use or any number of other things. Here are a few ways to make your vocals stand out with out turning them up so loud they sound like crap.

You’ve got 2 channels, use them.

One way to really fatten up your sound is by utilizing both stereo channels. What I like to do is an my main vocals a bit to the right, and on my over dubs I will record them twice and pan one take hard left and one hard right, you can also record your verse a second time, turn it down a bunch and pan it to the left to fill out your main take that is panned to the right. Try experimenting with this and you will love how full and wide your vocals sounds.

A wee bit of reverb.

Another easy way to improve your vocal recordings is to add a bit of reverb. I don’t like to use so much that it sounds echoey, but just enough can really bring out your vocal tracks. Most reverbs will have a setting for the type of reverb and the amount of reverb that gets mixed in, often labeled wet/dry. I like to set the reverb type to plate and the wet/dry to about 3-4% wet (3-4% of the reverb mixed in) depending on which reverb you use this amount may be different but you only need a very little bit of reverb to make your vocals sound more full before they starting sounds like you recorded your voice in the shower.

The thing your rap/sing into.

No amount of creative mixing or tricks can make bad recordings sound good, the best way to prevent this is by having good equipment. As far as a microphone goes, a large diaphragm condenser mic is going to be your best bet, you can buy them from anywhere from 50 dollars and up, and expect to spend between 150-300 on a good quality vocal mic. You may also want to consider adding a tube preamp to your set up as this combined with the condenser mic will give you very rich and full vocal recordings.

Don’t rap like a drunk bafoon.

I hear this time and time again, people rapping but you cannot understand a single word they are saying. This one is tough to notice yourself because you know what you said so your brain just hears that, but other people may not know what you are saying. Ask some of your friends or other artists you know to give your music a listen and ask them if they can understand what you are saying. If a couple people say that your lyrics are hard to understand then really try to make it a point to pronounce your words well while you’re rapping. You have a much better chance of people appreciating your lyrics if they can understand them.

Stay Active!

I can give you little tips and tricks and you can find a plethora of information on the internet but the best teacher is experience and as you record and mix more and more of your own vocals you will learn what sounds good with your voice and what doesn’t and with some effort and practice, you’ll be mixing like a pro in no time!

Easy ways to book shows.

The importance of doing concerts

Concerts and merchandise sold at them make up a huge portion of an artists income, you’re not going to make a living sitting around selling tracks on iTunes unless you have already built up a huge fan base. Concerts are a great way to make money and gain new fans.

Booking your first concerts.

Booking shows can be very difficult to do if you don’t know the right people, so you need to know the right people. Some of the best people to know to help you with this is other artists. A lot of times when an artist books a gig it is up to him or her to provide the opening acts. If you don’t already know a few people who are booking their own concerts then start going to local concerts and talking with the other acts there. Don’t just run up and tell people to let you own for them, tell them you enjoyed their set and ask them for some advice on something related to music, this let’s them know you are also an artist, and people love to give advice so its a great conversation starter. A few days later follow up with them on Facebook or Twitter and give them some links to your music and let them know you are looking to do some shows and to keep you in mind the next time they are doing a concert. At first you might not get paid to perform, but you can sell merchandise, make new fans and as your fan base and drawing power increase you will be able to negotiate better term because you will have the leverage of a large group of fans that will come spend money to watch you perform. Another easy way is to search Craigslist for promoters looking for acts. These people are already actively looking for artists so just email them links to your music and follow up with them about booking opportunities that are coming up. A word of warning, unless you are at the point that you are talking directly with venue owners and renting a venue out you should never have to pay to perform somewhere and if you do you are getting ripped off. The one exception to that rule would be if you were entering a rap battle of some sort with a cash prize, but those aren’t for everyone and often lead to more drama than opportunities for other concerts.

STAY ACTIVE!!!!

It’s up to you to steer your career toward the top, if being an artist that lives off their work is something you want to be then you need to be investing as much time and energy into getting your music to the people as you can. If you’re expecting some A&R to stumble across your soundclick page and sign you because you’ve got good songs then you have a long wait ahead of you. More and more artists are going the independent route these days and even the ones that get signed to major labels are the ones that went out there and did all the work needed to create a buzz. This isn’t a weekend hobby, this your future and your career and you need to treat it as such. Now get out there and start doing some shows.

Is Hip-Hop Dead?

Is Hip-Hop dead? That’s a question I hear alot and along with that I also hear that “soulja boy, Gucci man,future,lil b etc….” are responsible. I used to agree with that statement until I really sat back and thought about it harder. You can not blame the artist in the game for trying to eat just like the rest of us underground artist looking for their big break, but you can blame technology first and foremost for making the tools to create and share music so easily available to the public. 15 or 20 years ago Hip-Hop was in a whole different state, not to say that the artist back then where way better than today’s picks (which they where by a long shot…lol) but they had to go to big budget studios and programs like (Fruity Loops & Protools) didn’t even exist, the Internet was still in it’s infant stages so as you know we didn’t have sites like Facebook,Twitter,YouTube and the new comer Soundcloud.com to take a song from idea to being spread all across the globe in a matter of hours. In today’s music scene we artist have to constantly try to find new ways to get exposure on the now booming Internet market with so many different types of artist out here doing the same things.  

Back in 1990 if you wanted to hear from or see your favorite artist you had to either go to a concert,buy all their music or simply stalk them (Which I don’t suggest). Now flash forward to 2012 where you can buy a beat off soundclick go to a friends house and get a decent recording done throw it in a pirated version of Sony Vegas and make a quick video then post it on all the major social sites and flood your followers time lines to the point where they start to look over quality music from struggling artist and head straight for a song or video that is more popular due to either it truly being better music or somebody abusing technology by paying for a ton of views to gain exposure, “I’m not casting any judgments” get it how you live, I am just stating the facts that in today’s world hip-hop has evolved from the days of a DJ and a turntable to some sort of digital beast(lol).

With a little bit of computer knowledge and alot of time on your hands you can still earn a good living in today’s market by targeting smaller sites and social networks first then relying on the major sites such as Facebook,Twitter and so forth. I’m not going to guarantee you over night or next week success but I will leave you with this “Hip-Hop is not dead per to say it is just more transparent than it used to be” so keep grinding hard at what ever you are doing and with the right team,work ethic and of course capital you will soar to heights you never dreamed of before.
