Improving Vocals Quality
Hi - Any advice on how to get a better quality vocal signal into loopy pro? I am using a focusrite with an xlr connected Behringer XM8500 via the Add Hardware Input channel on loopy pro - not happy with the sound.
Any input appreciated!
Make sure gain staging is good first. Set input gain so that you get a healthy level that still has some headroom before clipping occurs.
You might also wanna process the vocals to make it sound more studio/ recording quality.
Using Loopy pro's own plugins:
Use an EQ (equalizer) to reduce boxiness around 500Hz, maybe take out some 250ish Hz mud too.
Give it some 'air' around 10.000 i.e. 10kHz
Use a compressor (Dynamics) to even out the volume and perhaps make the vocals punch thru a bit more. Try the presets with the folder icon top right
There are various other third-party plugins that can also be used.
For example I'd recommend TB Enhancer (it has a vocal enhancer preset), RRS EQ3 particularly for its 'air band',
and a de-esser to reduce harsh sibilances is a good idea, FabFilter Pro-DS is a great one:
Awesome thx for the great input - I was just looking at your list of auv3 effects in another thread for some guidance as well - thx for that!
