Making the vocals be less prominent by equalizing

When I listen to Between The Buried And Me, I feel like the vocals are a bit too loud, particularly in Colors and Great Misdirect. Is there a way to reduce the vocal' volume by equalizing in a certain way? Or using another way other than that?

No.

But there is... another way.

If you turn all of the frequencies all the way down on your equalizer, it will certainly reduce the volume of the vocals. Hope that helps.

Maybe you need a different type of EQUALIZER

There isn't a way I can think of without significant processing in a DAW.

You can't really just scoop those frequencies because other instruments occupy some of the same frequencies. You would wind up with a track with no high-mids but where you can still hear the vocals.

move a thin, high eq peak slowly around the 1-5k area while playing a looped bit with prominent vocals
when you get to a bit where it brings out something that sounds really mouthy to you, widen the peak out a little and drop it below

should make the vocals a little less intelligible but it will make other things sound different too
hey if you like it though then go ahead and keep it like that

there is specialised software that does this but i'm not sure how much is on the market yet
