Interesting....I always go EQ then compression. Why do you do it that way? Just curious 'cause I'm fairly new at mixing.

I'm by no means a pro when it comes to recording anything. I basically wing it every single time. I do have one observation and I can't really explain why. When I record vocals, my best vocals are with absolutely no effects in the chain upon recording and using headphones only on one ear. I suppose this is because I can hear the vocal in it's truest form and in real time and make the micro adjustments in the pitch and time as needed. It's a little weird doing it like this because at that point your vocal is so dry and does not fit the acoustics of the other instruments. It's easier to control your voice like this if you get used to hearing your self sing accapella in one ear

Hahaha.......... and there is a prescribed order of volume: Lead guitarist 11, everyone else 7 or 8 :)
And given I think it is my track where I am playing at 11, that started this post, I rest my case.........
And so endeth todays sermon ;-)

I've heard this is a good method for some singers who aren't comfortable with headphones, there are some other methods recording with no headphones that can produce great results too. It's all a matter of finding what makes you comfortable to perform, after all that's the goal, to capture a performance.

How do you record without headphones ? Does it not bleed big time?
