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.
Performing the vocal EQ'ing process time-and-time again, have you ever wondered if there was a better way?  I'm a process freak.  However, I've found the b

In referring to singing unaccompanied by instruments, the traditional spelling is the Italian one, a cappella: two words, two Ps, two Ls.

The one-word spelling “acapella” is widely used by Americans, including by some performing groups, but this is generally regarded by musical experts as an error.

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.

EQ vocals using these foundational methods for cleaning up the audio frequencies and punching up the good frequencies for a solid mix.

Story
Introduction
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.

You can find me at Behind The Mixer.
Bragging rights
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.
