It´s hard to replicate a sound if you don´t have that artist in front of you.
And settings vary from artist to artist , session to session, depending on the track , mood , adlibs , doubles etc.
So if you just learn about basic EQ ing and compression you can make those decisions by yourself.
But the Logic Compressor and EQ goes a long way and have been used in numerous professional productions.
Half the sound when recording vocals comes from the chain that´s used to record with i.e. a good preamp , a good mic , a good AD/DA.
With a good signal chain going in to Logic you really don´t need to do that much in logic after the recording is done.
Sorry about that. I'm using an Apogee Duet
2 and SM7B
. I'm trying to replicate a cross between Kid Cudi and Drake's vocal sound. I usually record with a friend who uses a PC and Nuendo
so it's difficult for him to give me advice on how to do it well with the Duet
and Logic. I was simply curious if there is a good starting point I can go from and then fine tune the settings to match my vocal intonation.
Any advice with those specifications would be of great help!
