I've gotten on a multitracking vocals kick lately and was wondering what techniques you like to use to get a great sound. At the moment, I'm just playing around with different techniques but I'd love to hear what you do so I have some new ideas to try. I'm interested both in mic placement/choice and mixing. Also, it'd be great if you could mention the style or type of sound you were going for since multitracked vocals can range from Queen to Katy Perry to D'Angelo and whoever else you can think of. Personally, I'm going for a sound that's often like Bon Iver, some John Mayer, Sufjan Stevens, and sometimes Fleet Foxes... but the basic sound is really just slightly R&B flavored/influenced with occasional forays into big, almost crowd like vocals on some choruses. However, I'm interested in finding out about many different styles and how you approach it both in pre and post work. My current method/experiment is to sing the main melody just like I normally would (large diaphragm condenser, about 12 inches away) and then record the other vocals while standing back farther. Some are in unison, others harmony and then I volume mix and pan until it sounds lush and full, without the main vocal standing out too much. So, how do you like to do your multitracking?
