Guitar & Vocal Cohesiveness

Hi Jacquire,

What is your approach for mixing vocals while hearing them perfectly though a mix with a good amount of guitar layers? Any techniques you find yourself going to that help create a clear vocal with lots of guitar in the track?

Thanks again.

The vocal being the hardest thing to EQ and shape to fit, I would look to carve out the guitars a bit.. the 300hz to 1.5khz area of guitars can overwhelm a vocal so make sure those frequencies are not covering up the voice... Also the vocal usually needs a lot of compression in mix to get it to sit and distorted guitars need very little compression as they already come that way (as long as you have a decent sound) I don't compress layered guitars to much.. better to blend in a parallel treatment for them or just a little gluing on the guitar mix bus
