Pro Mix Academy is a collection of some of the best Producers, Engineers and Mixers in the World who have gotten together to give us an amazing look inside the Mixing, Production, Recording and Mastering process.
In the video below we hear vocal mixing techniques from 3 World Class Engineers: Cameron Webb, Bob Horn, and Bob Marlette.
Cameron Webb explains how he uses high passing to remove unwanted low end in Lemmy’s Vocal and serial compression to give Lemmy’s vocal a very even sound in a dense Motorhead’s “Electricity.”

Bob Horn demonstrates how a fast release time on your compressor brings your vocal up front. He uses DeEssing to control the Esses and Tees then uses a Multiband Compressor to control High Mid aggression, followed by EQ Boost and additional cutting of unwanted high mids.

Bob Marlette shows us how he uses effects like the Kramer Tape Delay to give his vocals added interest, then adds high end EQ going into compression. Next he uses reverb swells to create drama as the song transitions from the Verse to the chorus. Even though this is a Rock song the Chorus vocal, like a Pop song is triple tracked to get the Vocal wide over HUGE electric guitars!
