Can I get some feedback from other people out there besides Dave? Hope to see this message board get little more activity. Dave wants to see this also. Thanks
: Hello Al,
: There are many theories and ways and hope others post their methods as well.
: In my opinion, that is a tough one to generalize as you are so dependent on vocal technique, stage volume and the sound of the particular voice.
: Typically, I focus primarily on the mic selection first and foremost. Secondly, I take all vocals and buss them to a stereo subgroup pair and then compress the groups. I also buss all vox effects to the vocal subgroups. I use a 2:1 to 4:1 ratio on the comps and set threshold so that normal singing gives me a few dB of compression.
: The theory is that the vox comps keeps the 'total vocal level' in check regardless of whether one person or several are singing.
: I always high pass out the LF crap and then EQ to taste.

: : Dave or Anybody,
: : Do you have any tips on obtaining great sounding vocals? Just on the processor and mixer end. What type of proessors other than delay,reverb and compression and maybe mixer configerations tips. I spent enough time mastering drum sounds I need to move on to vocals.
: : Thanks,
: : Al
