Bad at EQ and Changing Mics Mid-Album... Help? in Sound, Stage, and Studio Posted February 17, 2016 This is probably a stupid question but... I'm working on an album. I recorded vocal tracks for 7 songs using an old AKG Perception 200. They sounded pretty nice, until I bought a Shure SM7B and tracked 3 songs on that. I'm definitely using the Shure for the last 4 songs. It suits my voice (and, of course, cost more)! So, I'd really hate to go redo 7 songs. I like the performances (if not the capturing of them), and they're probably similar enough to fool most (BUT I'LL ALWAYS KNOW). I'm wondering if there's a way to EQ the AKG to sound more like the Shure? That's pretty vague, so I'll tell you what I'm hearing. The Shure is a little more full and bass-y, but the biggest difference is in the high end. The AKG gives an almost whisper-y quality to everything, and especially to really breath-y phrases. If you compare them, it sounds like someone is very lightly breathing along with my words on the AKG track. I'm no EQ master (in fact, I'm an idiot), but I played around and could kind of get the bassiness , but couldn't remove the whisper quality without really dulling the overall tone. It's so weird how I never noticed this whisperish feel for 2.5 albums until I tried a better mic. Ugh. Anyhow... any advice? ps. I use Reaper. pps. Clearly, I'm a little sloppy and clueless.
