Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

Yes, thats basically it, in simplified terms. I need simplified... :mrgreen: But any plug-ins that attempts to emulate an analog process on the other hand, is generally going to be "calibrated" to expect an input level in a certain range. This makes logical sense to me. I just didn't look under the...

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

Thanks Mark, Wow, OK, trying to follow, here. This is important info. Are you saying that if I draw on the waveform itself, that it is like moving the gain slider pre-effects, therefore affecting the input level of the signal going through the effect slot? This would create a fluctuation in how much...

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

I've found Waves 'CLA Vocals' to be an excellent plugin for quickly and easily fattening and smoothing vocals, as well as giving them a more professional sound. I've tried to duplicate the quality of sound with a string of other plugins but without success, so I use it all the time on vocals. https...

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

Thank you Mark, I will look at that.

And nope, I did not know that for "riding the faders." Very helpful tips. I indeed used automation on tracks as a mixing tool. I'm not sure if I use "inserts" - do you mean Aux sends?

Still learning... :)

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

The easiest way to remove unwanted noises is cut/delete those parts and bounce/weld the remaining clips back together. Not sure about MC but other DAWS will retain the original clips after editing in the audio folder in case you ever want to reuse them. Thanks for the tip. However the issue was not...

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

Thanks Mark! Can you pinpoint the sibilant B? I don't see it. Listening on Sennheiser HD600 headphones. I have a whole lot of envelopes all over the tracks, trying to maintain a constant dynamic and get rid of any unpleasant sounds. Particularly on vocals to get rid of mouth noises in between words....

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

So here is what I did. I had a friend sing over the passage, and he decided to also do harmony (5th). And then I put Dubmaster Liquid delay on his two tracks, while keeping the original track. So basically two guys are singing the same thing and one is also adding a harmony. So the first part of the...

Re: Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

It would be exceedingly difficult to make a suggestion based solely on a description. But some "thickening" techniques include subtle doubling, very short delays, or maybe you need to do some aggressive corrective EQ or maybe the recording just doesnt work with the song. Thank you Mark, the recordi...

This is my go-to for vocals and it's now free: https://www.jhudstudio.com/paid-plugins Info: https://bedroomproducersblog.com/2019/11/19/vocal-king-pro-free/ Thank you, I looked it up but it's not really addressing my specific situation. It seems it would enhance the harshness. Cheers, Andre

Tips to make vocal track fat & punchy?

Hi all, So I'm completing a project, and now realize after adding a bunch of instruments, that one of the singers voice is a bit too harsh, it sounds like a chainsaw (no offense to my dear friend whom I love very much). I wonder what plugin or technique I could use to fatten it up, make it bigger no...

Re: Export to OMF for ProTools?

We often discuss features in competing programs here, as long as its constructive. I feel its best not to bash other programs, nor would it be in good form to come here bashing this one. But to minimize duplicity, and since I already wrote you a reply to the PM, I dont really think it needs to he r...

Re: Export to OMF for ProTools?

No OMF support in Mixcraft.I To the best of my knowledge there are a couple common DAW's that support the format, and that it is more common in the bigger video workstation programs. Thanks Mark, could you name the common DAWs you have in mind? I don't know if the protocol on Mixcraft allows you to...

Export to OMF for ProTools?

I've been working on this project for months. I'm nearing completion in a matter of weeks. The studio doing the mixing sent me their requirements for files delivery. I'm on Mixcraft (Windows), they are on ProTools and Logic (Mac). He asked me to send OMF files. So of course I've researched the forum...

Performance Panel vs Vintage synths sequencers

So I'm diving a bit further into the features in Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio by exploring the Performance Panel. But I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around the process. So if anyone is listening and able to give me some feedback I'd be grateful. (Yes I watched a couple video tutorials, but it's a...
