In reality, the results are pretty much identical, however. Most of these plugins also have stereo effect options to broaden the vocal track across the left and right sides. A third option for doubling vocals combines manual control with automation. This mixing technique will typically come after manually doubling a vocal track. This human error can be amended or artificially created using the tools available in the DAW.
For instance, the pitch shift tool in the DAW can help separate a doubled track from the original. Of course, you only want to shift the pitch about four to eight cents to stay in key. This way you can still move the channel fader later on without it being stuck to the automation. Vocals often sound great with the main reverb. You can also choose to try out more creative reverbs specifically for your vocals. This is up to your preference. To maintain clear vocals, make sure to use a send reverb.
We qualify anything that is not a drum, synth, instrument or vocal to be a sound effect. Therefore, there is an infinite amount of different kinds of sound effects. Though, there are a three that are used in almost every song: white noise, risers, and impacts.
Here I will explain how to make these types of sound effects sound great in your mix. White noise is often used to create impact in the high frequencies. It sound great on the sides of the mixing space. White noise can use the full frequency spectrum. Depending on the song you can set a high-pass filter somewhere between Hz an 2kHz, to get rid of all unnecessary lower frequencies. Doing this will prevent the white noise from making your mix sound muddy or too busy in the mid frequencies.
However, if you want to enhance the initial impact of the white noise sound, you can set the attack time of the compressor right after the attack time of the white noise.
This that is often somewhere between 20 milliseconds and 40 milliseconds. Experiment with the release time of the compressor to listen what sounds best for the song. We often compress by 3dB with a ratio between to In some occasions you can boost frequencies around 10kHz to enhance the brightness of the white noise.
Wait until the end of the mixing stage to evaluate whether your white noise needs reverb. Steve Lacy. Crookers , Kym Mazelle Low Steppa. Kym Mazelle. Get Funky Laurent Simeca Remix Zsak , Crazibiza.

It will depend on the rhythmic nature of the track. If a track has a fairly simple rhyme part, I might create something of a feature using a ping pong delay jumping from the left speaker to the right speaker and automate the settings to add suspense and release in the mix.
Fast attack, fast release, the threshold set to make the compressor kick in heavily with every syllable. GRIT: Sometimes a vocal needs that extra squeeze of something to give it more flavour. I might use an exciter, distortion or some tape saturation to add some grit to the sound. However, if this setting was used on the main vocal channel, it would be way too much high-end presence and would ruin the balance. By using an aux channel I can dial in just the amount I want and blend it with the more natural sound of the vocal channel.
Detuned Width: I like to open two aux channels with the vocal send and panned hard left and the other hard right. There are a few simple rules to follow when producing backing vocals. This question is subjective to a certain degree, however, most tracks have the vocal in a ballpark area that just works. A quick way to get a great level is to use a reference track.
Listen to the reference track in mono through one speaker and focus on how loud the vocal is in the mix. Why mono? I find it makes it easier to assess how the mix is balanced. When setting the level of the vocal and working on the vocal in general I highly recommend spending some time using headphones. It gets you really close to the intricacies of the sound and allows you to pick up on things you might miss when listening through monitors.
Listening to your mix in both mono and stereo is great. I get this question a lot. Firstly let me clear up why it is notoriously tricky to get your vocals sounding great on both your studio monitors and on a club sound system.
The club sound system outputs audio in mono whereas your monitors output the audio in stereo. Barbara Tucker. Bob Sinclar Erick Morillo. Bob Sinclar. Federal Hill. Karen Daughtry. Tommy Musto. II: The Bounce Barbara Tucker Full Intention. Full Intention. Can You See The Light?
