I recently got a mic and interface (the Scarlett 2i2 Studio package), and I recorded a simple rap with a friend. I mixed the vocals once, and they sounded "alright" at the time. I mixed them again to see if I could do anymore justice to them, and they sounded "better" (in comparison to the first mix). I used FL Studio to mix (yeah, probably not the best DAW for mixing vocals, but it's the DAW I'm most comfortable using). I used a noise gate, a compressor, and the parametric EQ (to cut out the low end), but it's still not sounding the way I want it to. Does anyone have any simple advice they can give me?
