So, this is, in effect, sort of a take off on Phil Spector’s “Wall of Sound” i.e: several different instances of the same pattern, but different takes, also a few wet, a couple dry, but as applied to Vocals, and not instruments.

Thanks for this video. Very useful. Used the same trick when mixing for one of my Pop tracks. Worked a treat, especially the “buggery” compression!

globalmindent says:

to send all vocals to a stereo aux just create a stereo aux track make the input a certain bus and make the output of all your vocals the same as your aux’s input and u can still use sends for different trax

Marcus Allen says:

i understand what you are saying but most artists don’t just make art or music just for themselves. it is subject to the opinions of others. there is almost always a need to please the consumer. my original point was that they consumers dont care about the breath. Producers have become overly technical and non musical, people dont sing without breathing. I am an award winning multi platinum producer and i am entitled to my experienced professional opinion. remember that.

AnarchyAhead says:

Excellent tuition, thanks…. she doesn’t love you like she used to prob because you’re spending too much time in the studio

Emmanuel Chayer says:

> now when you go to the level of the label, that’s an other stories, they care more of sales than actual artistry of what making music and recording it is.

Emmanuel Chayer says:

It’s an artistic choice. In soft songs, and in certain style like Jazz, breath can be a very desirable effect. In other styles, breath is really not wanted. It also depends on the wish of the artist. Nothing to do with the consumer. The consumers by the art of an artist(s) and those that helped them bring out their arts, remember that.

Don Dayter says:

this is true… but you can also just throw a light crossfade between the areas removing the clipping, or just use the pecil tool to remove the clip sound.. but good point for those that didnt know.

Don Dayter says:

im an artist and producer as well man and i couldnt agree more.

GeoLayered says:

Nice instructional but i gotta say ………….I bet she don’t love u like she used to lol

rawstarmusic says:

Swapping copies, I do that, cloned copies isn’t good. When u put on high ratio compression I wondered but since u use this out-flatted vocals as an add-on sound with high EQ then it makes sense. I guess you can make that saturation-track move around as well

Marcus Allen says:

to all the uptight producers out here, you should get on the level of the consumer sometimes. most people don’t care about breath. there are plenty of horribly edited mixed songs on the market that have done well to argue otherwise.

ZannieZanana says:

You don’t love me like you used to baby! Thanks for implicating this into my brain. It’s currently on repeat.


Malakhi7Kaine says:

I clean points like that occasionally with the drag fade

Pro Tools Expert says:

It happens all the time in the pop world, I’ve sat there watching it happen, so perhaps your use of the world ‘nobody’ should have said ‘I wouldn’t’
