Im so glad I did some research today on getting a better head phone mix. There is tuns of information online about what works well for people. I was feeling i was going flat and i just didnt get the overall feel of the song, not hitting notes etc.
I came across a few articles and a few videos on you tube basicaly saying, take the effect off, take one ear off, give yourself head room from the mike. WELL WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! i put the effects on afterwards and im really happy with this new approach. Dont get me wrong there is lots of editing needing done. Youtube is great for all the information especialy if your a visual person like me.
I also went back to the original lines in the song and i fell naturaly into it and so far tonight it seems alot more structured, meaningful and back to what the songs about. HOWEVER the listen in the morning tells a different story so here is to a good nights sleep on the efforts tonight.
PS. the vocal booth and the new music room is realy heling me mobve forward in music i feel. Im getting more than ever done even with family life, working and all the other stuff going on.
