Can we talk about your lead vocal in a recording?
What are your usual instincts and workflow when you have a freshly-recorded, "naked" lead vocal?
Do you have a preferred style in how you like your lead vocals to sound?
In particular, I am interested in how much low frequencies you like to remain in your final leadvox track. From listening to older, pre-digital pop hits, I notice that many famous singers were identifiable by their highest frequencies, and that the producer had no need for their throatier deeper timbres. So a high-pass filter was surely used just to allow passage of the crispiest trebles, consonants, breaths/transients--- and the singer's unique "stamp" was conveyed that way.
Rarely, it seems to me, did a traditional pop record need to bring in the warmth and intimacy of lower frequencies as the microphone surely "heard" it.
Your comments, please? ras
