1:03 What is Belt?
The Dictionary for the Modern Singer notes that “Because the word belt can mean so many things, it is often a confusing term to discuss and difficult to define precisely. Indeed, belt can serve as a noun (indicating the register or technique), an adjective (describing the tone quality or sound), or a verb (describing what the singer is doing). Perhaps no other word in singing is so multifarious.

2:13 Dr Dan’s definition of ‘Belt.’
I often refer to Belt as ‘Healthy Volume.’ Essentially, I reserve the term Belt for loud healthy singing, so various hybrid uses of the term belt, such soft belt and thin belt don’t get used in my studio.

6 Tips for Singing Into a Microphone – Record Vocals for Best Results – Felicia Ricci

6 Tips for Singing Into a Microphone – Record Vocals for Best Results / – Take my FREE 3-video belt singing course!

Here’s a lil video all about microphone singing! My best 6 tips for knowing how to record vocals for optimal results. They are:

1) Set levels so they’re not too high; otherwise you’ll max out and distort your vocal recording — and, worse, try to hold back or sing tentatively to accommodate this too-high setting. Instead, aim for a lower microphone level. You can always boost it later.

2) Get your live monitor/headphone levels right! Singing with headphones always presents its own set of challenges, so I almost always leave one ear outside of the headphones as I’m singing to get some live feedback.

3) Don’t forget your breathing DOWN BELOW! The microphone picks up what you’re creating up top, however, the work and effort happens via the rest of your body. Don’t forget your technique or become a “neck-up” singer in the studio.

4) Be mindful of how distance to the microphone affects the nuance, intimacy and volume of what you’re singing. Closer = more intimate. Further away = taller, more echo-y, for louder moments.

5) Learn how to breathe without harsh, noticeable gasps (super distracting — and I give you a quick tutorial on how to do this in the video).

6) Finally, experiment! Microphones are incredible tools, so don’t be intimidated! Just practice and see what sounds good, then trust your instincts. 🙂

In the video I also mentioned that I was using an Audio-Technica AT4040 condenser microphone for $299 –

Ooh! Even better — AT4040 plus pop-filter and XLR cable, for $299:
