New Equipment and Track Mastering

If you guys don't mind listening to a track I recently did with an Audio Technica Mic 4040, I would appreciate it. First time I have used a good mic and pre and I am not sure if I have it right: - MC Celtic - LAKE WORTH, Florida - Hip Hop / Rap -

Just about the general sound of the track.

I heard the first track on your Myspace page. It was sounding good, sounded pretty clean, especially with the vocal. Good job on that

My opinion as a producer and engineer.. If I was to be the one producing and mixing the track, I would start off by changing up the vocal chain a bit, and picking a combo that would present more of an agressive sounding presence.

I find the combo that you are using to be great if a rapper's voice is already naturally agressive. A rapper I work with sounds great on a similar chain to the one you are using, but its cuz his voice has a lot of edge to it to begin with. Regarding the track I heard, you voice seemed to sound less agressive and gritty, and more laid back and smooth. A mic with more presence boost and/or an open top end would sound a lot more interesting on your voice IMO.

But thats just my tastes with what I would have liked to have heard if I was the one engineering that track.
