Curated from the free Into The Lair (ITL) video tutorial series, Grammy Award–winning mix engineer Dave Pensado bestows his tips and techniques from years of recording vocals. The vocal sound in a production can be the differentiator between an amateur and a pro-level mix, and in these vocal-focused ITL episodes Dave covers the ins and outs of mixing your vocals.

Dave goes over EQing lead vocals to fit in your mix, getting background vocals to blend perfectly, understanding how to use compression to make a vocal jump out and mixing vocals using various types of EQ, compression and effects.

Dave then covers fixing “over de-ess’d” vocals, manipulating the top end on vocals, incorporating delay effects onto your vocals and applying vocal mixing techniques that Dave used for the legendary group Earth, Wind & Fire.

Make your vocals shine, check out this Into The Lair series today!

Dave Pensado

I think this is a good format for the 'Into The Lair' series. Dave is one of the real guys in the big chair and many of us, if not all, could learn things from him and/or think about different ways to accomplish mixing tasks. Don't let the laid back delivery fool you, because he will say in one sentence what will take you an hour or hours to experiment with.

Dave Pensado is one of the recording industry’s preeminent mix engineers. With multiple Grammy nominations and wins under his belt, Dave has had an astounding career. Christina Aguilera, Pink, Shakira, Beyoncé, Flo Rida, Afrojack, Frank Ocean, and more are a fraction of the superstars who keep Dave on speed dial. From pop to hip hop, country to Latin, and R&B to alternative, Dave’s special niche is making radio-friendly records while enhancing artistic intent.

In 2010, Dave and his manager started a web series entitled Pensado's Place. The show is wildly popular, is seen in over 150 countries by 600,000 people a month, and is used as curriculum in over 100 colleges around the globe. Every week audio artisans who work with superstars like Coldplay, Kanye West, Rascal Flatts, and more join Dave to discuss all things audio. The show has been featured in Forbes, Huffington Post, Boston Globe, and Last Call with Carson Daly among others.

With all the success, what is Dave’s favorite part of his career? "Nothing is better than being able to teach," says Pensado. "The ability to share and watch it positively impact a life is incredibly powerful." It’s that ethos that makes Dave so revered by his peers and makes him a legend to his fans.
