3 Things You're Doing Wrong

"Using” Mthe Wrong Mics"

1. Using the wrong microphone!

Not all microphones are created equal. Some are better than others and some sound good with some people and bad with others. So you have to match your mic to your own vocals.

Quality vs Price
When it comes to quality, there's a ton of choices and prices vary per budget. However, when you match yourself with the right mic, things start to get good. Your signature voice will shine with certain mics than they do with others.

"Professional” Rap Beats for Sale"

I have 5 microphones that I use with my artists. Some can sound amazing on the cheaper mics and they can also sound awful with the more expensive ones. It all depends on the person's vocals. Make sure you try as many mics as you can before purchasing one. Once you find the right mic, it may be the difference that it makes to have your vocals sound pro. I use a "cheaper" tube mic called the Avantone cv12. It has interchangeable tubes to match your project, Warm, crisp or standard. This mic is really good for guitars and vocals.
