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

Robert Metzgar/Universal's response:
You should only use multiple tracks of the same person's voice to enhance your quadraphonic mixes. Otherwise in pro-tools or any of the digital formats you can simply paste another vocal over the one you are doubling. I only use a doubling of the vocal in the chorus only. I never use "cut and paste." I make the artist physically sing another pass for the left speaker, the right speaker, center speaker and quadraphonic sounds. So, chorus only. As far as the backgrounds sounding tighter, if you use a professional AFTRA trained background vocalist you won't be able to stick a needle between their vocal and the leads. Don't use non professional people. Use only the best professionals and you'll get hit records.
