Recording and Mixing the Vocals

The vocals play an important role in Eurodance music, so pay attention when recording and make sure you choose the right singer(s).

Use a condenser microphone while recording. Also use a pop filter/an audio editor and remove all the pops from the audio file.

Double the vocals and add a delay of 50-120 ms to the copied version.

Panning: center


General settings:

Ratio     : between 2:1 and 7:1
Attack   : between 1 and 7 ms
Release  : 50 ms / auto
Gain      : between -3 and -10 dB
Knee     : soft


Remove everything below 150 Hz

Add air by boosting around 12 kHz


You can add reverb, but there is no rule how much rever to add, it's just personal taste.
