how are you recording it now?? what kind of mic?

yes you need an interface! even if you weren't recording vox id strongly recommend getting one. also in my experience of recording vocals a good mic makes the difference. a decent entry level condenser whatever the fuck that is will serve you well.

as for the problems youre having right now - you need to move around as you sing if you have a big range of volume during the performance. as you get to the loud bits back away from the mic like a foot or something and get in closer for the quiet bits.

I'm using one of these http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wi...33a662b5ed0e2/

And it's a pretty rad mic, I think. I don't have the clipping problem when I'm recording me, because I'm not much of a singer and I don't know how to mega project and get hella loud. When I record my bf though, I have to turn the mic input down really really low because he knows how to properly belt it. Maybe I just gotta tell him to back up big time when he yells so I don't have to keep it so low. But it seems like there's very little room for error when it comes to clipping, it keeps happeniiiiiinnnggggg and maybe an audio interface will help

so youre using a usb mixer? i dont know anything about headroom so im not sure if getting an audio interface would give you more of it but it would give you better pre amps. as far as im concerned though its much more important what you put into it i.e. can you sing, is it cool rather than how good it sounds

just get him to lean back when he sings louder and maybe sing a bit over the top of the mic (probably terrible advice). he will have to do it if he ever sings in a live situation too, you get used to it instantly it will be no problem!

wait or is it a mic straight in via usb? do they do those? that might be different in terms of headroom. i still think the lean back technique will work perfectly anyway

edit: watch a mariah carey/whitney houston/celine dion live video and theyll all be doing it

Re: The off topic thread

Yes, it's a straight usb mic, plugs directly into the compooter. I suspect there's more noise in the background from soundcard shenanigans and getting an interface would help with that (right?)

(This subject makes me feel like a newbie all over again)

well your laptop soundcard is doing the analogue to digital converting I guess so a dedicated soundcard would be a lot better for that. also all round its just so much nicer to have a good soundcard when youre making tunes. its worth buying a good one because you will have it for a long time. I bought a focusrite 8 in 6 out yeaaaaaaars ago and made the right choice because in the last 2 years ive made a lot of use out of the extra inputs and outputs even though I didn't need them when I bought it

if you buy a decent soundcard you will have to buy a new mic too because your current one is USB so its a big commitment money wise!

Put a compressor/limiter on the vox straight away just to keep it from clipping. Do not alter the dynamics of his vocals or squash them though. This is common practice.

Also do not take fmb's advice, do not have him sing over the top of the mic, in fact quite the opposite. Have him put the mic over the top of him so he is slightly looking up at it. It helps! Yes I actually took courses on this shit

Re: The off topic thread

I would invest in an interface for sure. His control over his own voice his most important here though. He needs to have a good concept on when to belt it out and when to pull back. Also use a mic stand and have him remain at the same distance from the mic throughout tge performance if possible.

Re: The off topic thread

Singing up into the mic helps open up your throat and should sound better when belting things out. Not all artist do this but it is a good practice.

He should be able to control his own vocals and not have to step away from the mic to do it.
