When I record my verses I do them one time, and then I put a noise gate, desser, compressor, some eq, and reverb. And on my hook/chorus I do the same but record it twice and instead of reverb I add a light echo. I've been doing this for a while now but it still don't sound right and I have no clue what else to do! If this isn't the right tools what is? I have tried using different types of settings on each of these but it still sounds bad, please help!
