Hi there!

I'm currently experimenting with DPCM and chopped vocal samples, but I don't really know how to approach pre-mixing them. In terms of EQing, normalizing, and or compression (if any), what should I do to make sure that consonants are clear and distinct without being muddy? I'm not too worried about distortion or conflicting with the triangle channel.

I suck at recording vocals and stuff.
I don't know if you know this tool already but Rushjet1 did an awesome program to make DMC files !

My question was more geared towards the actual mixing process of the vocals so that they don't sound muddy. I have a system for importing the vocals already.

Yeah I've been wondering about this too, ex: my drum samples are incredibly muddy when imported and I've beforehand tried a lot of different EQ techniques to no avail.
