Recording Vocals Masterclass - Part One | Soulsound

In part one of this superb studio engineering masterclass, Marcel starts off with a really deep look at his five favourite mics – and what might influence his choice. He discusses the type of voice, why you want to keep the lead vocal reflection-free in the recording process, unnatural EQ effect from comb filtering, minimising ambient reverb and which way to position the microphone in the room. Marcel’s personal favourites are: Shure SM58, Neumann U87, Sony C37A (Frank Sinatra’s favourite!), Neumann U67 and the Schoeps Colette with MK4 capsule. This is an information-heavy masterclass. Enjoy! Featuring the music and delightful voice of Sarah Moss.
