Recording your songs and vocals at home has many advantages. Not only do you record in a more relaxed environment at your own pace, but the cost of recording also gets to be very low when compared to professional recording at the studio. For recording music at home, you need the microphone, your instrument and your laptop only. The recording studio can be very easily and comfortably set at home but you do not get the services of a sound engineer and the availability of the high-quality sound recording recruitment that a professional studio can only offer.
Here are some tips that will help you improve the quality of the sound and vocals you record at home and will bring your recordings closer to the ones happening at a professional music studio in Delhi.
Using the right instruments:
All instruments having a direct input (DI) including the drums, guitars (including bass and electric guitars), keyboard instruments etc. can be conveniently used at home. Ensure that during recording no interference is there and no other sound reaches your home studio.
Choose the bedroom for recording:
It would be better if you record your vocals and audios in your bedroom as the place offers you more relaxation. It is also devoid of the mirrors, echo, reverberated sounds and reflections and hence the sound quality does not deteriorate when you record the songs and vocals In your bedroom. The bedroom also has the drier environment when compared to other rooms including the living room. It has been found that vocals recorded in the dry rooms are always better. The mattresses, curtains, cushions and pillows keep your bedroom dry and any sound recorded in it has a more natural feel to it.
Selecting the microphone:
It is important to buy a good quality microphone, but remember that the source of the sound has equal importance towards better sound quality. The condenser microphones cost a bit more but if you have the budget you can opt for them for better quality. It is also important to see that the microphone is placed at the right amount of distance. For instance, the condenser microphone is placed around 6 to 8 inches away during recording for the best results.
Editing the right way:
Try to keep the recording natural and do not over-edit by using the editors. A greater dependency on the software will make the audio lose its original vibe.
See to it that all sound that you record is within the red metre, and does not peek exceedingly. Any extra hotness will affect and may deteriorate the sound quality. Sound should only be recorded in accordance with the limits that have been set in the DAW and the pre-amp.
If you have a room with good acoustics and a nice microphone you, can record a range of sounds, vocals, and music with instruments including percussion instruments, acoustic guitars and others. Some instruments including choirs may require extra and large space and that might not be available at home. For these instruments, you might have the recording done at the music recording studio in Delhi only.
