Hi...first...this web page is the best find in my life...second...I'm trying to record vocals in cubase 3...I have Studio project condenser mic, m-audio buddy as a preamp and xfi sound card...problem is...is it posible to get good quality voice recording vith the equipment that I have???...If it is(i hope...no extra money to spend)...HOW!!!???

I have never worked with effects, reverbs or delays....

Which reverbs or effects or plugins i should use to get as close to the studio quality sound as posible...

Maby somebody has similar setup as mine and has it all figured out...

Yeah, it's possible. A compressor in the chain would be nice, but if the vocalist can control his/her voice well, and knows to back off the mic in powerful sections, you should be good. Record it flat, no EQ and process later.

What style of music?

Head to www.KVRaudio.com and grab the 'Analogic delay' and 'Bionic Delay' plugins. Also search google for the 'Antress 1176' and 'Antress La2a' for your vox. Oh, and download the the 'kjaerhus (can't remember how its spelt) Classic bundle' as cubase has no good reverb or modulation plug ins. Anyway, thats just a starter point for plug ins. KVR has heaps of great VST's so keep looking!

You can get good quality recordings. Can you get super pro sounding recordings, probably not, but you can definitely get something that sounds good.

Once you record, try adding some compression. The settings on the compressor will depend somewhat on what style of music you are doing. Also, you will want to eq the vocals. Maybe a slight boost around 1500Hz to 2100Hz and cut a couple db below 80Hz is usually a good starting point for most vocals. But also read up on any mixing articles, because the vocals don't exist by themselves (unless the finished product is an acapella), but rather have to fit with all the other instrument tracks. You may also want to add some reverb and/or delay depending on the effect and style you want. Go easy with the reverb though...

Hope that gets you off to a start.
