Hey all, I always had trouble getting a mix right with background screaming in rock songs, where someone is singing, and there are faint screams in the background on certain lines...anyone have an tips for getting that faint mix but still having them noticeable?

Thanks

Just a suggestion, try adding some reverb to give it some space and make it feel like it's further in the mix yet keeping a central pan and a fair volume.


Iv e never done this before tho. Just an idea like that.

I always try to keep it low and have verb but not overpowering verb.

Hopefully the faint screams in the background are part of the act 'eh
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

Double track the scream parts,, compress the shit out of them, then pan them a bit L/R, maybe 15% L/R from the lead vocal with a touch of verb then bring up their volume until you're satisfied.

send your vox through the verb aux and adjust the level to taste. they'll have more verb than the leads b/c theyre bups

Place a low-pass filter over the screams to cut the highs (this creates the illusion of distance) and hard pan them. Add reverb to taste.

That is the method I tend to use, too.
