AEA R84/TRP & U 89/STT-1 on vocals

Hi,

If you go here:.Mac - iDisk
There are samples of a recent experiment.

1. Full Mix: both U 89 condenser and R84 ribbon used on main vocal
2. Vocals only using a U 89 and an AEA R84 ribbon some EQ but no EFX
3. Vocals only using a U 89 and an AEA R84 ribbon some EQ and with EFX
4. Vocals only the AEA R84

I'm using the AEA TRP preamp on the R84, the U 89 with a STT-1. I like the combo of upper end on the U 89 and mids from the R84.

Regards,

Ty Ford

She has a pretty voice but she get's off key quite a bit. Make sure that the singer has a really good mix to track to. Not all singers are the same, you have to experiment to get the best performance out of them.

She get's flat in quite a few places. The first time she says the word yes, stands out as one example. My ear is very sensitive to these types of things.

The recording sounds pretty nice overall though!

Here's a quick bcgood master that helps it sound better. I tried to PM it to you but for some reason I couldn't.

Listening back to the "Yes."

I don't hear it. Your life must be a living hell.

How do you do on microtonal scales? I would think that would push you over the edge.

The download doesn't seem to work here.

The download link works.

Sorry that you can't hear the flat notes. There are quite a few. I'm just trying to help. There are others like me that will hear it to...

I suggest re-tracking the vocals in a better environment for the singer. Maybe in the control room with the L and R monitors out of phase and an SM7 in the middle. This is a good technique for singers that don't do well with cans, (Headphones).

Best of luck to you. I'm honestly just trying to help.
