What is Vocal Recording?
Vocal recording (aka vocal tracking), is the process of capturing a recording artists voice through a large condenser microphone. It is a crucial part of the music production process. Audio engineers usually record multiple takes, which allows the engineer to pick the performers best vocal takes during the editing process.
What is Vocal Editing?
Vocal editing involves removing unwanted breaths, pops, and clicks, as well as adjusting the timing and volume of the recorded vocal tracks. During this process, the audio engineer can also splice together different sections from the vocal takes to achieve the best possible sounding vocal performance. From there the vocals can be easily mixed into a beat.

Top Tips for recording artists before entering the recording booth!
Recording vocals requires a lot of patience and preparation. Before stepping in the booth make sure that the lyrics are memorized, and warm up your voice before you start recording as well.
It is crucial to set up the microphone correctly. Use a pop filter to reduce plosives, and properly adjust the input gain. Once the levels are set correctly the vocalist can begin recording.
Another best practice is to record multiple takes. Once the vocals are recorded, the audio engineer can edit the takes to ensure the best vocal performance, add effects and mix the vocals into the beat.
