Improvements to Home Studio Vocal Recording

Postby dovroc » Thu Oct 17, 2013 12:20 am

Dear All,

I am trying to record some vocals in my home studio using a Rodes NT1a mic in front of a SE Reflexion Filter Pro, connected to Focusrite Vocal Master.

The acoustic at home aren’t great, so before I put too much effort into these recording, I was wondering whether someone would offer their opinion on the quality on the recording and suggest any improvements which can be made.

I have uploaded a sample here

Thanks a lot!

Sounds OK as a basic track. A little room reverb but that may end up masked by the accompaniment.

Nice performance.

You may get more objective responses if you give no details as to the gear you are using and people must base their judgements solely on listening to your track.

Everything is there to make for a good vocal within a mix - it will need some EQ, but I'd be happy with this as a starting point.
