I've been working vocals for a few months and the main problem I have is I experience clipping when put together with the whole track. I know for a fact, my vocal tracks are top quality and have no clipping originally, and I never push the vocal send/track to 0db. Is there any possible way to fix this when put together with the whole song? It get unbearable.turn master fader down a bit? :v
okay for real though, here is my checklist for when i get unexpected clipping/volume increases:
are there any master effects/comps/limiters?
is the "Master Volume" fader at top left near file menu is on the default level?
is the "Master" channel EQ set to anything other than flat?
does the "Selected" channel fader in mixer window (always far right next to send 4) have no effects, flat eq and volume fader set to default?
also if you're double/multi-tracking or layering vox or whatever maybe just turn the levels down.
Generally on my vox channel in the mixer, I only have EQ2 and compressor (generally a weak compression, nothing that improves volume by a lot). Alone, it mixes well with the (example) pads and the melody, and hell even the bass line. But the moment I turn on the percussion send, it all clips.
I went to change the percussion EQ and compression and made significant changes, but after that, it still couldn't work with my vocals. The percussion works well with the rest, and the vocals work well with the rest, but the vocals and percussion can't work together. At this point I have no idea what the problem is.
(I never touch the Selected channel, so that's out of the question. I only EQ and master the Master channel after EVERYTHING is done, so the master channel is empty and untouched until completion.)
