Question: I have an Audio engineering questions. I would like to your opinions on using
"doubles" on a track; can they be used througout the entire song, or only parts
of the song? Is there a 'general rule of thumb' as to where they should be used
and when they are the most effective? Also, what is your advice when it comes to
harmonies. What is the "technique" used in audio engineering to make them sound
'tighter' so they don't sound like a background vocal?
Answer by

LaDream Records's response:
I being an audio engineer can give a sound advice on this one. First using doubles can be a good thing as well as a bad thing. GOOD THING: there useful if the artist is unable to double there own verses/choruses, or adding power to the verse/chorus; BAD THING: its a lot of work eq'ing the same take twice to try to make them sound differnt instead of "doubled", they make the artist lazy, a good artist will 9 out of 10times want to double themselves cause they know the beauty that it brings to the track and the richness of the sound, this also applies to the harmonies, the more you stack them the better and richer the sound. Far as placement of them well that's another story, hey I got time lets get into it. HARMONIES: 11 tracks of harmonies, each track performed at a differnt octave, 2tracks panned -100 and +100; 2tracks panned -45 and +45; 2tracks panned -33 and +33; 2tracks panned at -15 and +15; 2tracks panned -7 and +7; 2tracks panned centered and the last one use a double track for the centered tracks. Mix down accordling and there's your rich, thick and powerful harmony that will stick out far beyond the background vocals. Feel free to hit me up at my email for more info.
