Tuning Vocals with Plugins
Vocal tuning for Live applications is a useful tool to help us get our mixes and performances closer to that of recorded music. Vocalists are generally more pleased with their performances when we apply tuning, and it can help a tired vocalist at 8am hit those high notes! Jeff shows us how to use the Waves Tune Real-Time plugin, and best practices for a natural vocal.
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.
Automixing with Plugins
Mixing a panel of speakers can be difficult because of feedback, mic bleed, and other issues. Automixing plugins give us an amazing tool that makes this easier than it's ever been. Jeff shows us how to use the Duggan Automixer from Waves in this video.
Live microphones plus speakers can equal feedback. This video will show how to use the Waves X-FDBK plugin to eliminate pesky feedback.
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.
