Song in Video: am1r – Nothing But the Best
Often times when you’re mixing vocals and you are coming from a high energy chorus into a low energy verse, the verse vocals get lost in the transitions. This is more apparent when the verse vocal starts even before the chorus has ended.
One of the best ways to fix this problem is to use a simple automation technique where you lift up the first couple of words in the phrase that starts the verse. Even a boost of 3-4 dB’s can make a world of difference and people won’t notice that you made that boost.
