What microphone do you use?
And do you use reverb in post mixing if yes, might you tell the name of plugin or program, please?
I have a Shure SM7, but I often record at other studios, as well, where they use all sorts of microphones, as well. 'Hero' was recorded with my own microphone, though. I do not mix my own songs! And, unless you are very good at what you do, I don't advise you that either. Mixing is not as easy as it seems these days. I have a great mixing engineer I work with, Rob Chiarelli, who just won a Grammy. I always have ideas and it's a collaborative process, but he's done this for 30+ years. That can't be replicated with a plugin:)
Have you ever been to Brazil?Elizaveta responded on 05/22/2015 Next question
Hi! I'm a high school student in love with your work. I've been taking private vocal lessons for 5 years now and are working to pursue a career in music! Just looking for advice, how did you become such an amazing songwriter? I've been trying and trying but feel as though I'm going no where. I'm taking piano lessons, should I write the melody or the words first? Sorry, if this is a weird question. I just thought who's better to ask than an amazing writer herself?
Looking forward to new releases! - Emily
