Chapter Seven

Vocal Recording

Getting a good vocal sound is easier than you might think, although it seems to be one of the subjects that people have difficulty with. You don’t need fabulously expensive mics or preamps to get the job done to a high standard, so long as you follow a few basic rules. Large-diaphragm capacitor microphones, including suitable back-electret models, are most often used in this application because of their ability to capture high frequencies more accurately, but a good dynamic mic designed for live stage use will still work perfectly well, and is even sometimes preferred for some styles, such as heavy rock or rap.
