How do you put a chorus on vocals?
Try Adding a Subtle Chorus Effect. Another way to give the vocal a bit of depth and shimmer is to apply subtle chorusing. Again, you don’t want the effect to be noticeable. Add a stereo chorus to the vocal and increase the wetness until you notice the effect, then back it off a touch.
How do you make a good chorus sound?
Adding extra rhythmic elements like shakers, extra hi-hats and tambourines can make the chorus sound more full, as well as adding a feeling of drive and pace. These don’t necessarily need to be loud in the mix, even at a barely audible volume in the mix they can make it feel bigger and more driving.
How do you mix the chorus effect?
Four Tips for Mixing With Chorus
- Add Some Subtle Width. If you use chorus as a send effect it can be used to subtly widen a mix element.
- Create a Fake Double-Track.

How do you layer your voice?
First, pan your lead vocal down the middle, then, like we talked about with doubling, pan your doubles hard left and hard right. The same goes for doubles of your harmonies, if you have them. Then you can play with pads, textures and chops once you’ve found the proper balance with your vocal tracks.
Is chorus good on vocals?
Thickening vocals Chorus is one of those vocal effects that goes in and out of fashion. Way back when, it was hard to find a vocal on a pop record which wasn’t awash with obvious chorus, whereas now, treatments tend to be much more subtle.
What makes a chorus catchy?
A big way in which you can achieve creating a catchy chorus will be to make it sound different from the other parts of your song, like the verses and the bridge. Musically, you can do that with both your melody and with the chords you’re playing underneath the melody.
How do you make a chorus stand out?
A popular change to make in your melody to make it stand out from the rest of your song is to have the vocals in the chorus sung higher than they are in the rest of the song. That really pulls the vocals away from what’s being sung in the rest of the song.
What does mixed chorus mean?
Mixed Chorus is a course focused on vocal technique, learning music notation, sight-singing, and preparing repertoire mainly for the winter and spring concerts at Danvers High School. Students will be able to sing alone, in small groups, and with the large chorus using the proper vocal technique.
Should I layer my vocals?
Loosely layered vocals will cause you to lose the intimacy you are trying to create. There is an effect you should be aware of though when layering these parts. If your performance is so tight then your vocals will start to sound phasey. Almost canceling out the center image.
Should I layer rap vocals?
If you’re recording a chorus (for rap or a singing style song),your audio engineer can use the vocal double to pan them to the sides to get a more stereo sound. For choruses, in general, I’d recommend recording additional vocal layers of the main vocal to be panned to the left and right side.
