Fighting Stage Bleed in Vocal Mics
Live stages are noisy and full of microphones. Guitar and drum bleed into vocal mics can be very hard to manage. We’ll use Waves PSE to help fight some of the stage bleed in our inputs.
Why Immersive PA Systems
Jeff and Lee talk about Immersive PA systems with the d&b crew. Immersive audio isn’t a new idea, but only recently has it become something that can be done in a large space.
Flown PA Toning
Jeff and Lee walk through the toning of a flown PA system. They explain what to listen for when toning the system and how to get the most out of your PA.
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.
Setting Gain Before Using Plugins
Whether mixing analog or digital, having proper gain structure will give us the best starting point for getting a good clean starting place for mixing. This is especially important as we begin stacking plugins. Lee explains this in detail in this video.
Using Vocal Effect Plugins
One of the greatest benefits to using plugins is the access to amazing effect processing. Lee uses Waves HReverb and HDelay to craft a great vocal sound.
