I really like this but the vocals aren’t quite sitting IN the mix. It’s hard because ime there’s a little magic and luck that needs to happen.

If you some actual technical suggestions I’ll be happy to throw 2 more cents over the wall.

Q: When compressing these vocals the background noise seemed to come out more. How would I go about removing the background noise without loosing sound quality?

Typically that happens when the threshold is too low. I haven’t worked closely with the Below vocals but if the dynamic range is too large for your liking you may have to go in there and boost the low part with a volume envelope (before compression)

The other problem may be an inferior compressor. Most of the compressors that come ‘out of the box’ with software hosts aren’t very good, especially for things that matter like vocals.

hey uret (lol)…there are a couple of ways i’ve found to get rid of background noise in the vocals…the first thing i do is i play with the EQ a bit to kill the frequency that the noise is happening the most at. you can do alot with EQ if you know what you’re doing. there are different types of EQ, and parametric has been the most useful for me because you can "notch" the sound above or below certain frequencies. then i usually go in with graphic EQ and fine tune the sound. another thing that will help you "seat" the vocals better in the song, is to convert it from a mono sample to a stereo one, then add some chorus and reverb. you can also slightly take the two channels out of phase and this will produce an expanded type effect, but don’t do it too much or the timing will be way off and it will sound horrible. hope this helps…been doing this as a hobby a looooong time now, so i’ve got a bit of experience under my belt.
