Waves MondoMod & Doubler for fun!!
Yeah I don't see what the fascination is with Waves Doubler. It just sits idly in my VSTfx DAW soft rack. I will give it a go sometime in the next few days, and get back to you guys on that - if I demo it. When I did demo it before, it just didn't give my vocals what I was looking for. It might have been because the vocals were too "dry". Now that I know how to de-dry vocals, I will show Waves Doubler some love again.
Waves SuperTap...ok ok I seem that PSM and s12512
have co-signed on it. So I will give it a go sometime soon too.
Onto my list that's good for vocals:
1) Number fukkin' 1 here: Voxengo Voxformer.
I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned it....really.
This VST kicks Antares Mic Modeler's ass on the double (no pun intended to Waves Doubler.) *Roger from What's Happening Now kind of laugh*
2) Jesusonic (affiliated with Cockos/REAPER) Noise Gate:
The best noise gate ever! Holy fukkin sheeeeit!
For example, a user can record in a room of people talking shit and if the user/engineer sets the cardoid mic to only pic up in one direction and if that user is directly in front of the mic close enough while a whole bunch of people a hecklin' and chattin away. This noise gate will filter out the hecklin' into light "static" in the background and the user vocals will have clarity.
3) Dry/Wet filter in iZotope Ozone 3. Yup I set the Wet filter on 1.0 for basic vocal plate reverb and set the Dry filter on 45% to 65% of the original vocal signal.
3) Waves C4 - what such an unbiased compressor!!! It works on anything!!
4) Crysonic Spectra'PHY - what a kick-ass transparent limiter. I keep the settings on default and just pump up the Input signal if necessary. Every now and then, the vocalist (me or anybody else) may have been too close to the mic and in that rare instance, the Output would be lowered a fraction of a decibel.
