While I'm on the topic of mixing vocals, check out my article on eq'ing vocals like you are cleaning out your garage. I've seen people spend time trying to boost frequencies when their best vocal mix comes out when then cut out the bad stuff. Seems basic, but it's an idea often overlooked.
Whenever people ask about EQ'ing vocals, I usually point them to this article. It's a really good place to start. There is a lot more to mixing vocals, such as blending, contrasting, and adding effects, but this is a great place to start. http://www.behindthemixer.com/content/vocal-eq-settings
BehindTheMixer - Church Audio Enthusiast (teaching, helping, leading).
Church sound guy who loves sharing and teaching everything about church audio.
I love working in the live audio production environment in the church audio arena and any other venues I can get. I also love teaching others about both the technical aspects of live audio and also the non-tech stuff like dealing with people and problem-solving.
How about we call this area "BLESSINGS!?!" I've been blessed to be working in church audio with a supportive pastor and worship teams. I've been blessed that ProSoundWeb posts up my articles on their web site. I've been blessed that Focal Press has given me a ton of books to review.
