So I've started Pop projects, this one is two girls together. This is the first song I've worked on that is Pop genre and I've gotten into a pickle,
Below is a snippet (1st verse) of this song with their vocals, Please read this first-
[I am aware of volume problems and anything to do with a little too much reverb right now etc. I'm in the middle of tweaking this right this second so i just rendered it so you can see where I'm at.
I'm use to mixing my vocals more clear and precise, but the singers want to sound less "live" and more "poppy". Does anyone have some tips on how about reaching this sound? If the only answer is expensive Auto-tune it's out the question, i need to mix this completely myself.
An example of what they are going for vocally (besides just saying "Poppy") is Havanna Brown's "We Run The Night"
Above is where I'm at right now and the link below is another forum where I've posted an mp3 talking about the whole mix but in it the vocals are clear and mixed more like how i usually like to mix them.
