Here’s a not so quick tip from the pro audio files. Let me know if you guys find this helpful! Who else is in the studio today!? 🔥 “This one is for folks who are selling instrumentals online. When advertising your production on your sales page, I completely advise making a heavily compressed, pumped up, loud version of the instrumental. Your potential customers don’t understand the process of production, they just know what they hear and they expect the record to be loud. However, when it comes time to record the vocals for the production, that’s an entirely different story.
In order to get the vocals to blend well with the music, whoever is recording and mixing needs space in the record. If the record is slammed, whether through compression, limiting or hard-clipping the master channel — there is no more room. In order to make the vocals work, the engineer will have to make concessions. And again, counterintuitively, the final product will probably be less loud than it would have been had the engineer been given a less compressed file to begin with.
Once a beat is purchased, make an alternate version that is less compressed to help the process. Your name is going on this record and over the long term, everything that can help the success of the song benefits you!
