Working with Cans

I like to lay my vocals in the studio with only my left headphone on. I have found that this allows me to work with the track while still hearing the acoustic aspects of my voice.

I'm interested to hear your preference in the 'vocal booth'. Both cans on or one can off? What do you think the advantages are of your preference?

Re: Working with Cans

It's the same with me ~ I leave only one headphone on, and the left ear as well.
My "preferences" are the same - "...this allows me to work with the track while still hearing the acoustic aspects of my voice."

Additionally, the hearing in my right ear is not as "acute" as my left due to a necessary (cervical) spinal surgery that was delayed by an insurance company for OVER A YEAR !  Thus, it caused permanent auditory nerve damage, as well as "other" permanent nerve damage.

Re: Working with Cans

it depends on what i'm workin on. On the soft part i like to have the headphone left and right to work on the proximity effect. On louder part, just right headphone ( i'm left handed lol) just to don't destoy my ears ;-)

Re: Working with Cans

I find that half an ear off one ear... and it sometimes helps me on a long session to change ears... helps me. If I'm singing with another singer, I use the ear NOT next to the singer to do it, or I change sides so I can use my favorite ear. In vocal production of others, SOMETIMES.. rarely... a singer does better with both ears on. Don't know why, but it's a fact. I always suggest doing the experiment to find out before committing to the performance.

Re: Working with Cans

I am the same. Left can on right off. It allows me to hear the acoustic elements of my voice and control the nuances better. Just have to be careful about sound spillage....

Re: Working with Cans

Hi,We have been working with Otto Environmental Systems, the manufacturer of our garbage cans, to figure out what the problem is. They work all over the country but have never had this many complaints," Daley said. "We're asking residents who have defective wheels to call a hotline Otto has set up to collect information on the problem."

Re: Working with Cans

To the topic, when I am recording, I keep on earbud out. Audacity cannot do realtime track monitoring. You can choose that option but it is delayed. So, I keep one bud out so that I can hear myself, and one bud in so that I can hear the music. I have recorded before with the desktop speakers and what happens is the mic picks that up and ends up producing a chorus effect on the musical instrument playback.

Re: Working with Cans

One caveat... I've come to understand that just using one ear can cause ear damage... this is a warning given to all performers using in-ear monitors and I would assume goes for all headphone use.Might be best NOT take one ear all the way off, and to periodically change the dominant ear. Would love an ear specialist/ scientist's view on this.

If you create designs as a freelance artist for a company, and are paid only on commission, what percentage of sales should be making?
