vocal recording seems to be phase shifted. Is this Normal?

Post by xenomachino1 » Fri Jul 11, 2014 6:44 pm

the distribution of the waveform seems to be highly shifted to the "upper side".

Running a Sure SM7b into a UAD apollo interface. Tracking with a 1073 preamp plugin followed by an 1176 plugin, an LA-2A plugin and a Pultec Eq plugin.

I tried switching the polarity when tracking and the waveform distribution went the other way.

Anyone have any ideas?

thanx.
