Sweet vocal comp please !

Hello !

I am actally tracking with a Fearn VT1 followed by an ELOP. Everything is sweet, got that airy vocal, fantastic !!

But now I need that nice vocal mixing comp to complement them both.... I am right to fear another tube unit for mixing ? I thought about the STA-LEVEL, but the manley comp already give me that bottom thickness I need ..... mmmmm... Got some experience with that chain ?

I am into soft acoustic folk / bluegrass music....

Thanks !!!!!

I don't think you need to fear another tube unit

but a great solid state option is the Buzz SOC

SOC-1.1 Stereo Optical Compressor

don't fear the tubes they are good, you could use the elop again, or a CL1b or a Crane Song Trakker is very nice

if you fed that vocal into an atomic squeezebox, you would have a very particular and, dare i say, lovely slice of heaven. it'll preserve every single nuance and detail, will reign in the vocal completely and effortlessly, and will add the slightest bit of sweetness to the 3-6k region without slathering anything in heavy coloration.

then again, a vac rac would be equally gorgeous.
