Better Mixes Series: Vocal Delays Part 1 of 4 

I am a huge fan of Digital Delay and in particular vocal delays!

This is the first part of a new series I will be doing called Better Mixes Series. In each series, we will go over all the ins and outs of a specific topic. I figured since delays are my favorite we will start there.

In the first video, I will show you how to set up your vocal delay. Some people prefer setting the delay up as a bus and others prefer putting the plugin right on the track. Either way is not wrong. Check out the video and be on the lookout for the next three!

3 Tips for Recording Better Vocals with Cam Meekins 

I have been working with Cam Meekins for quite some time now. He’s much more than a client, I consider him a brother. He has done really well for himself and I’m super proud of his progress. He came by the studio the other day to work on some of his new songs and I thought it would be a great opportunity to make a video on proper vocal recording.

Many songs I get from people recording at home could be so much better if they were recorded better. A bad vocal recording can make a great song just ok. And an ok mix can be a fantastic mix if it’s recorded well.

Seeing how Cam records about 90% of his music at his home studio, I thought it would be helpful if made a video going over his vocal recording process.

So here it is!

In the video, we talk about the most important factor which is the room you record in. We also cover where to stand when recording, and proper microphone gain staging.

Please let me know if you have any questions in the comments below. I believe this is a super important subject that can’t be overlooked.

Acustica Audio’s El Rey Review 

Acustica Audio’s El Rey Compressor is an emulation of a famous compressor from the 1950s. My guess would be that it’s an RCA compressor. Not only is it a recreation of an RCA compressor, but it’s a recreation of superstar producer Greg Wells compressor. To me, this is pretty cool. Not so much that it’s Greg’s (although that is cool) but that we can now get specific emulations from specific gear from a certain studio.

My, it’s great to be engineering in 2019!

As far as the sound this thing is a beast! It gives you some real thick low-end body that most compressor’s usually take away. That fact that they added a parallel compression knob is a great feature as well. Check out the review below! Let me know what you think in the comments too!
