Why is it that when im singing without a microphone, my voice sounds alright but when i sing in a microphone at home it sounds horrible but then it sounds good when im doing gigs on microphones?
Maybe the soundguy tunes the EQ a bit?
If I were to take a guess, you're not EQing your mic at home. Everyone's voice is different, and therefore requires different boosts/cuts on the EQ and different amounts of reverb.
either ^ or what I thought was may be that's the sound that you hear in your head mainly and the sound that you hear in the ears from outside your head with singing with the mic
The room you're singing in can affect how you hear your voice because of acoustics and what not.
oh okay now i get it
