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.
Glue a Mix Using Plugins
Bus Compression is typically something done more commonly in the studio, however with plugins we can easily achieve this Live! Lee walks us through how much is too much, and some potential trouble spots when using bus compression live.
Time Aligning Subwoofers
It can be hard to control and manage time alignment of our PA systems, especially if you operate in a portable church. The Waves SubAlign plugin helps us align our PA within the plugin rather quickly.
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.
How Immersive PA Systems Work
Jeff and Lee talk through the how behind Immersive audio with the d&b crew.
Using Dynamic EQ on Vocals
Once we have our vocal sounding good, we can often run into problems as our vocalists sing different songs as their intensity may be different song to song. Often we may hear a harshness in a certain frequency that we wouldn't in another song. Dynamic Eq is the perfect tool to remedy this, and Lee shows how to do it with the Waves F6 plugin.
