Mixing bass baritone vocals

Hey I’ve been growing around the forum and I don’t see much information on mixing bass - baritone vocals.

First thing I noticed is it’s hard to get autotune to work on vocals cause it’s so low

Second thing I noticed is that reducing 60-79 hz with a high pass will already start thinning the vocals because that’s where most of
The definition is.

I also feel if you don’t have the correct mic (98!( in it will sound really high in the high fq and I always feel that takes away. I feel baritone vocals are supposed to be very smooth, for example Nate dogg, Barry White

I think a good mic will definitely help . When i EQ vocal starts to get very thin. Most of the voices that way I’ve dealt with, ended up being more harm than good when I eq. I do minimal eq and you’ll be surprised how good the finish product sounds. This works for me

You have to approach it differently then if you were doing it to a alto or soprano vocal track.

There are no set things to cut and boost, so if you are cutting those ranges and its making it sound thin, stop doing that. Every single vocal is different, so do not do what others do with their vocals, it will not work.

You do only what will make your vocal sound better. This will take using your ears and knowledge to decide what to add or cut. When mixing Baritone vocals in a song, you need to be aware of all the other instrument sin that same frequency filed and carve out pockets in the other instruments in that frequency range to fit the vocal so it doesn't compete with the other instruments in the mix. Look up Complimentary EQ Techniques. This will help you mix every single instrument track better and have them sound clear and not competing over each other..
