Analog echo on vocals
 
Hey Vance! Really dig how you treat Vocals, especially your work with Tyler Bryant. How do you decide on delay times and mono/stereo for the effect?

I wish I had a good, clinical answer for you.. but.. I just move the slider on the Fulltone TTE's until it sounds right to me.. I'm not a tap tempo kinda guy(Except for certain things that HAVE to be on tempo) but it's more of a feel.. like it has to make you want to really hear the vocal.
As for stereo.. always.. Sometimes hard pan, some times 3 and 9 o'clock.. If there is space in the middle and I want it more focused, then closer.. if I want it to be wide then hard pan and then a wide box... Gut feelings..
thanks!
