    Article provided by Home Studio Corner.   Have you ever mixed a song and really struggled to make the vocals cut through? The typical tricks involve equalizing out some lows or boost some highs, but that doesn’t always work. Plus, sometimes all that EQ leave the original vocal feeloing flat and lifeless. Another option is to really squeze the track with compression, but even still sometime that doesn’t have the desired effect, and even worse, there are times when the… View this post

    Talking with sound technicians and worship leaders, I often hear the complaint that from week to week, the quality of Sunday morning varies. I’ve determined that some of this is from training, such as when there’s a problem and the tech doesn’t know how to fix it.
