Dom Morley — Vocal Reverb Tip
My number one reverb tip on vocals is if you want to keep the vocal sort of present and close to you, but you want a big reverb on it. Your biggest problem is when you put a big reverb on it, the vocal disappears back into the room.
If you still want the vocal close, put a pre- delay on that reverb.
The pre- delay makes the room still sound big, but makes the artist, the singer or the guitarist, whatever you want upfront, it makes that stay up front. And it just sounds like the room behind them has got bigger rather than they’ve been lost into it.
There are many significant junctures capable of enhancing or undermining the quality of a song’s vocals. In this article, iZotope Contributor Philip Nichols shares some common vocal production practices—some to use and some to avoid. Of course, it’s best to start at the source.
A great refresher when doing pre-production work. It really helps to know how you plan to make your recording the best it can be,
