I need some help and input of you guys to help me improve my system. I do not have a lot of money but hopefully with make it possible to do some good recordings. All tips are welcome. I'm into electronic music and I do not have experience recording vocals. What I need is to record a friend and put it on top of some beats he already has. It's a simple setup I only need to record one person over some beats (hip hop/ rap). All I'm going to do is different takes and I just need to EQ the voice and add some effects. I know that this is not an easy task to do and requires experience but hopefully with your tips I will improve the sound recorded.
Let me first introduce you to my setup:
*Studio monitors- adam studio monitors a7x
*Studio headphones- HD 280 PRO
*Laptop -macbook pro
*audio interface M-Audio ProFire 610
*Microphone- Rode k-2 ( i do not know which tube is in it already)
*I will be using logic pro for recording
I have some questions:
1- Do you have any favourite tube that goes with the rode k2?
2- Do I really need a mic preamp or should I get decent results with the one in the audio interface?
3- What kind of plugins do you use to EQ, Compress, other effects etc..? I want to be able to play with the voice around.
4- What tips do you have to make the recording? Any good articles?
Any good techniques used in hip hop/rap? I hope you can help me on this one
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
