  1. Hi Ronan Bruce here a member of Taxi. I have a project going that I cannot seem to get the vocals to come out. I have been diligently working for a month and I am a bit stuck, Do you listen to recordings and give advice on how to improve the recordings? I have reason 6.5 by propeller head and an i3 laptop computer, this is all I can afford. I have a sm7b mic and others as well and none seems to be fitting the agenda. I know I cannot get the recording to sound as good as yours, I think it is impossible. If I can send this to your email it would be greatly appreciated. I have used compression and everything under the sun but nothing seems to do the trick. I know you are very busy and may not have the time. Thanks for your help.
