Recording vocals is easy, right? Just put up a large-diaphragm condenser mic (with popshield) about six inches away from your mouth, sling up a couple of old quilts to soak up the room sound, grab a pair of headphones for monitoring, and you're away! Sadly, however, this approach frequently achieves poor or inappropriate results in real-world project studios. To find out why, join Sound On Sound magazine's "Session Notes" and "Mix Rescue" columnist Mike Senior who'll be using live demonstrations and audio examples to show you how to get the best out of the stereotypical project-studio vocal tracking setup -- as well as exploring a variety of common situations where you're actually better off abandoning it completely.
