A quick Vocal Recording article for Hip Hop vocals, but really a lot pertains to any genre. Here
I love to record and mix music and meet others who love it just as much as I do.

Vocal Compression Quick Tips

Quick Vocal compression tip from guys with Wink Sound.

I've often used this trick with R&B vocalists and plugin's to track. It allows the vocalist to track with vast dynamic variances, but this maintains a more even amplitude and almost eliminates chances of clipping because we are digging so deep into the vocal. I still usually like to have some unabated attack instead of how they do it in this clip, but what's most important is for the compressor to be FAST and for the ratio to be low 1.5:1 maybe even as high as 2:1 and for you just to dig deep into the vocal.

Try it out and see if this doesn't help your tracking. I hate to call it a "set and Forget" but it definitely helped me to let the vocalist wail away without worry of overages.
