Hemophiliac Posted July 25, 2008 Report Share Posted July 25, 2008 Oh great, I hadn't really thought of this. I've got absolutely no experience recording vocals when the singers aren't all together (actually, I've got no experience recording anyone but myself, but anyway). Should we stress consonants the "normal" way to do it in a choral setting, or what?For those of you who don't know, it's typical to "overact" a little on consonants because of the timbre of a choir's sound and the tendency of things to get muddled really easily by other voices and by the local reverb. We're not going to be singing in a hall and we're probably going to be equalized anyway, but what exactly does that change in terms of stress? And I guess we won't know until we see the music (which, if I'm guessing the track right, is a bunch of ahs anyway), but Latin vowels? EDIT: First questions directed at Hemo; last one directed at OA. i just listened to the track, it sounds like latin to me...which means vowels are to be very round. because consonants create plosives, sibilants and other recording problems we probably will not be over-emphasizing the consonants. however; we will still need to be precise as to where the vowels cut off and end. same goes for breath marks.
