重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 don't know where singers learn microphone technique. 重庆体彩网ost singers in popular music don't have any training, so they can only have picked it up from seeing other people do it, or in response to what they hear coming through the speakers at their live gigs.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网he 'classic' microphone technique is to back away from the mic when singing loud, coming in closer when singing quietly.
重庆体彩网his does work in live performance, particularly in smaller venues where the sound is often less well-controlled than at top pro gigs.
重庆体彩网he alternative is for loud sections to be either ear-splitting or distorted, or for quiet sections to be inaudible to the audience.
重庆体彩网f course a compressor can be used, but this creates other problems in live performance that we won't go into here.
重庆体彩网n the studio however, things are a little different.
重庆体彩网irstly, there is no problem in setting exactly the right preamp gain to capture the loudest sections of the vocal without distortion. 重庆体彩网here is never any reason to back away from the mic due to excessive level. (重庆体彩网nd if the mic can't take it, switch in the pad or use one that can.)
重庆体彩网ow if the quiet sections of the vocal are too quiet, they can be brought up in level using fader automation. 重庆体彩网ou will probably be using a compressor that will do some of this work anyway.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网o there is no reason why the singer has to be anything other than a constant distance from the mic.
重庆体彩网nd in fact, if the singer does bob backwards and forwards, it creates a problem. 重庆体彩网hen you use a microphone close up, the sound quality it produces changes significantly even with slight changes in distance. 重庆体彩网his is particularly so with directional mics, which exhibit the proximity effect where bass rises when the sound source is close to the mic.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网andomly variable level, bass and sound quality is most definitely an engineer's nightmare. 重庆体彩网t could take a day to put right, and even then not perfectly.
重庆体彩网o in general, it is better in the studio for the singer to stay at a constant distance from the mic.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网here is however an exception...
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网ometimes it is desirable to let the singer react to what they hear in the headphones. 重庆体彩网ome experienced singers have the ability to 'work' the mic to get a more expressive performance.
重庆体彩网重庆体彩网n this case, you should make sure the singer has exactly the headphone sound they want, with 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网, compression and reverb as required. 重庆体彩网hen let them use their microphone technique as they wish.重庆体彩网ome on the 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网 重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网重庆体彩网
