Punching in when tracking?

hey! i've had trouble with punching in when recording before, and usually the part I punch in doesn't sound the same as the vocals before it...I was recording this and I punched in at the part where it say "...tryna get a deal, making bubble gum rap ain't nobody 'gon feel" I was wondering if you can tell that I punched in at that part? is it noticeable? please let me know!

Just focus on the feeling of the record rather than the mechanics... you don't want to strangle your art

Sounds good to me....YOU probably hear the punch in because YOU know you punched in. Don't know if u do it or not (didn't really sound like you have a problem) but when I record people I have them record back a bar or two before the punch in (rapping with the playback) on a separate track then cut out what I don't need and comp the two tracks. Never could tell we punched in

I tell artist to start on the line before and keep going. Then I cut and mute what's not needed.

If any punch can't be made to sound good with moving the edit point & cross fades, start a new track and let the vox overlap.
