Feel Warm

I tried to really elevate my production this week and make something big and deep sounding, i think i succeeded :)Then I threw a whole bunch of vocals on top in an attempt to make a fully realised pop track. Obviously the lyrics are a bit repetitive which I think detracts from the overall impact, but i think i got the chorus really right heart so im happy with that.

Excellent!

Super-strong lead synth melody, and a great bass under it. 

Did you double the vocals?  I'm hearing a bit of interference, which could be taking some impact from the vocals...though that could be a saturation plugin.  But if you doubled the vocals with the same mic (and sung from the same distance/position from the mic), you could get some weird comb filtering effects.  When I'm double-tracking anything (guitar/vocals), I try to make sure something's different with each take: different mic, different distance from the mic, different note...any one difference will likely be enough. But if there's a chance of hitting the same note with the same instrument into the same mic from the same position, things can get strange. 

Still, good work on this pop song!

yeah theres definitely something funky going on with the vocals. i thinkin the chorus the fx bring it all tgether but in the verses definitely there is some spooky production going on that im not qualified to fix properly

its double tracked, but using the same mic and relative same position. The notes are different, but i feel i put half the main melody and half the harmony into each take (as i threw it togethr pretty rough) without taking the time to separate out which ideas/notes worked for each take.

thanks so much for the input, next time ill try using diff mics or trying different positions, as well as working more closesly on my melodies and harmonies!

but!

glad you dig the track heart

Ahhhh!  That could explain it.  Definitely look into picking up a few different kinds of mics--lots of deals out there!  Good luck!
