Working with vocals can be tricky. More often than not, when there’s a vocal present in a track it automatically becomes the defining part of the composition. Whether it’s a short sampled hook, a full recorded lead vocal or a remix acapella, the quality, clarity and tone of the vocal line can leave a lasting impression on the listener and define how they hear your track.

While, naturally, the source material plays a major role, how you process and mix vocals can totally transform the end result. In this month’s cover feature, we’re digging into the multitude of ways we can work with vocals to bring out the best in them. Whether you’re looking to refine a recorded vocal, flip a short sample or enhance an acapella, we’ve got ideas and tips to help you along.

There’s an often repeated cliche that mastering is a kind of ‘dark art’ – a deep and impenetrable science that is beyond the capabilities of mere mortals. However, given the amount of tutorials, courses and mass-market plugins out there, all designed to tackle the mastering process, this is clearly nonsense. 

That’s not to say that the process doesn’t require a fair amount of skill and expertise, but given the power of modern DAWs and plugins, these are now techniques that even the most cash-strapped producer can get to grips with at home. In this issue’s cover feature, we’ll introduce you to the tools, theory and essential skills you’ll need to get to grips with mastering in your DAW.
