Recording vocals with Tiffany Monique
Tiffany Monique is best known as one third of Beyoncé's background vocalist trio The Mamas, having been a permanent fixture on the last two of Beyoncé's world tours. Tiff has also worked with such greats as Mary J Blige, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera & Kelly Clarkson, but is a recording artist in her own right too. She records demos on her travels with the Scarlett 2i2, and now her recordings made on the road are good enough to use in the final track, as she explains: "Before, I had a Radioshack microphone that I would just plug into the laptop. It would give me an idea of what I was trying to do with the song, but the actual take itself was of no use because of the audio quality. Now that I have the 2i2, I can actually use the recording that was done in my home for the finished song." We caught up with her at home to see how she makes a new song: from pen to paper, home studio to pro studio — all with the Scarlett 2i2.
