Magix makes song writing easy and with professional samples your song can sound great without much need for mixing... that is until you want to add vocals to your track.
A trick that pros (and just about every recorded band) use is called vocal overdubbing. Now this takes a lot of practice and patience. If you don't do it right your vocal will sound like a chorus effect and out of sync.
To start... get a good mic, I can not stress this enough. A large diagram condenser can be had for not a lot of money. Do not be fooled into these cheaply manufactured mics though - get and Audio Technica AT2020. Then of course you should have a good preamp too but that's another topic.
Next, WARM UP YOUR VOICE - do some DO RE ME and pitch matching. Then record yourself singing along with your song - do this as many times as it takes to get it just right. Once you're 100% happy with your vocal track SAVE YOUR WORK!
Finally, Record yourself again on another vocal track singing along with yourself. You must sing exactly the same as before and this will take several takes. We've spent hours in the studio doing this. You will be playing your song over and over and over. Once you've got a good match you will have an overdubbed song that sounds fantastic. You vocals will be full and robust and have that professional edge you've been missing.
Do not try to copy one vocal track two times - it doesn't work that way. The nuances of singing twice are what make this method so popular.
Now polish your song by keeping your vocals right in the middle of the stereo field, pan your bass a bit left, your guitar a bit right and add a touch of reverb to your drums to send them to the back a bit. This will create a full song spread across the stereo spectrum.
