Thicken Vocals with a Doubler
Studio mixes frequently feature doubled vocals. Using this technique can help thicken the vocals and make them more prevalent in our mixes. Lee shows us how we can do this in a live scenario with the Waves ADT Plugin.
Checking Phase with Plugins
Multiple microphones from single sources can cause phase issues as those sources interact with each other. The Waves InPhase plugin can help us identify if multiple mic’d sources are in phase or not. Lee shows how in this video.
Using Multiple Reverbs on Vocals
Layering different reverbs to create your own reverb or having multiple reverbs on standby can be a great tool for adding some depth to our vocals. Lee shows us his approach to this with the Waves HReverb plugin.
