    anyone using pro-tools to record and mix? i just picked up an sm7b mic and it records at a crazy low volume. think i need a pre-amp. and im still having problems getting my vocals to sound the way i want. any vocalists got tips on what you do to make your sound tight? my room is not treated either...

    Looks like you have some descent pre amps. But the gain ain't that great on an sm7. You may really need a mid level amp. Plus it doesn't help your shit ain't treated. Have you tried recording in the closet with clothes surrounding just your head and mic?

    I'm in Canada. the link takes me to an international site.
    Maybe your monitors ain't that great. Or also the placement is a factor, the may be too low and you an't hear your low end or too high and you can't hear your high end. Plus your room ain't treated so you may have a lot of early reflections which fuck everything up when your monitoring. When you mix and shit, if you want the best opinion on your mix usually your car is the best place. But try listening to your mix on as many different things as you can, clock radio speakers, ipod, home stereo etc. But ya, car is the best. you got to think of where it is people listen to the shit the most. Headphones are wack, unless you have studio monitor headphones. And even then you still have to be aware of frequency response and all that shit.

    are you using a midi controller? i sometimes have that happen with pro tools. i usually just turn it off and back on and it works. make sure you have your controller on when you boot the program so that it recognizes it...
