I'm new at this forum, and it looks great!
I'm pretty new to homerecording and I've only managed to finish one song that sounds even close to ok so far. One out of three. I've been doing this for a couple of months now. One problem that I have that I can't figure out what to do about is the vocals.
I can make it sit decently by doubletracking, but I don't wanna have to do that on every song since it gives a kind of special sound.
Whenever I try to record just one track vocals I can't possibly get it to sit. Not by using reverb, not by compressing or anything else I can think of. I realize that it's probably 'cause I'm not using these tools the right way, but I can't figure it out.
I record on a laptop with a firewire soundcard, through a behringer mixer and a SM57
The music is accoustic guitars. Sometimes with additions (VST-instruments). I use Cubase SX.
Anyone have anything to say from this information (I know it's not much) to maybe point me in the right direction?
