How to Sit Vocals in a Mix w/ Ganesh Singaram (Pharrell, Kanye West)


Vocals can be the heart and soul of your mix; the part of the track the ear is immediately drawn to. It’s also one of the hardest parts to mix, with variable volume, timbre and tone throughout a performance. Sitting the vocal within the mix, especially with electronic music, can be a challenge and can make or break your track.

Point Blank’s expert sound engineering instructor Ganesh Singaram (Pharrell Williams, Swedish House Mafia, Kanye West) explored vocals in the latest Friday Forum Live, where gave you tips and techniques for balancing vocals including EQ, parallel processing, spatial techniques and more. He’s also provided a project for you to practice everything he’s talked about – download the project here.
