I recorded vocals in my home studio and I’m having trouble reducing the harshness of the recording. Normally the recordings don’t sound quite as harsh, any suggestions? is it just the way this guys voice is? I’ve used compression and normalization on it, but the harshness was there in the original. I’ve tried different eq adjustments but haven’t been able to reduce it. I don’t have the option of rerecording it either.
The performer has a honk in his voice and I tried to gently push it out of the way and bring up the clarity a little (attached). You don’t notice any difference unless you compare it to the original. If that will work, I can post how I did it.
