Getting vocals to sit in the mix is one of the most challenging aspects of music making. When working with electronic music, it becomes even more difficult as you attempt to balance a dynamic, real-world source with a more consistent, sample-based bed. For Point Blank’s latest FFL, JC Concato took a track by PB student Gutto Serta and rebalanced the vocals. The track ‘Smokey Mirrors’ had some classic vocal issues that Point Blank address over the course of the video.
