Vocal Recording Tips and Principles – Jon Wright – Part 1

Hey there MixCoach readers! Here is a series of guest posts by Jon Wright with some insight into a vocal recording session. We’ll post the first tip Tomorrow, and the rest each Wednesday through Dec 1!

“Earlier this week I found myself in a lead vocal recording session that Kevin was engineering and Wayne Haun was producing. Kevin asked if I would take some notes for the blog and immediately while observing I was reminded of some really important principles in the engineering and production world that are often forgotten and easily overlooked.

For most good engineers and producers, for example Kevin and Wayne, these principles become innate but they are still worth revisiting. And for professionals building a client base these principles can be the difference between a “one-shot” and a repeat customer. I’ll split the principles into a few different posts.

Also, let us know what you’ve got on the subject. If you’ve been in a session that went extremely well, tell us what worked well and why. I would love to hear back from you.

– Jon”
