I took a "finished" track in to be mixed and the engineer, a friend of mine about 4 bars into the song hits the stop button. He sez " man this is "way pitchy". I sez "Whattyamean"? He sez "Outatune man. Ya gotta re-do the vocal man. You don't want it to go out like this." So we listen again and it's very obvious that about half the notes are sharp." Why am I doing that??"
He sez "it's cause you're using headphones and you got 'em way too loud.
Turn 'em down and only have enough instruments to keep the beat and the chord. Like a rhythm guitar maybe and a lite drum. So I try it and it helped...some. I still have intonation issues but I also have a vocal coach now and maybe we will solve the problem.
The issues are three, Hardware, Software and Wetware. The first two can be solved......
