Or a vocal coach to help her develop strength and projection.John
She's a fairly new artist to me, so once we've a good working relationship, this will be the first chat. However in the meantime I must be seen to be getting it right, rather than her! She's the star, I'm the hired professional!To other comments, she currently has a "mildly damp" in-ear mix, I've tried her with loads and hardly any level of herself, dry mixes, completely wet mixes, compression, no compression etc.Most to no avail, compression just enables her to go louder for those loud moments, rather than holding back the actual rare semi loud bits she does.Heil were top of my list, with a side recommendation of a d:facto2 by DPA, however not so sure of that one, as specs look similar to that of a 105, which I've tried and doesn't work. Might as well put a 105 on the hi-hat and have her sing 5m away. Sounds about the same! GBF is the rule of the day, everything else comes second.
Recently started working with a new group and its proving to be a challenge.Lead singer performs at a whisper, her singing voice is lower than a soft talking voice. She has amazing tone and she sounds incredible, but has no projection or power behind her.I've moved her over to ears which has been the first step in the right direction, I currently insert a graphic over her voice and "go-to-town" on the offending rings as they pour in.I've currently got her on a e935 which she loves in her ears, however I'm not feeling it out front. The proximity effect is a little too much, but is great for feedback rejection.Anyone any recommendations for mic improvements?The likes of KMS105's or 87 cause more problems than they help, as a lot of shows are on small stages, close to PA.Obviously the logic fix is the source, but that's not really option!
She's the star...
How can she be a "star" when she doesn't know mic technique, and is apparently frightened by the sound of her own voice? No mic can fix that if she's not willing to put in some effort on her part. Been there, dealt with that (diplomatically, of course!)...
Ummm because she pays the bills. You might have some success with the the old great til dead wall of sound technique but it's not terribly telegenic.
I am mostly on long line arrays with good pattern control.
