Background Vocals

Hey Tony!

Thanks for coming here and sharing your wealth of knowledge with us! I consider you one of the most tasteful mixers out there. Lovin' the new Jason Mraz by the way! Here's my question...

Asides from a great performer/performance, what techniques do you apply do get such smooth and well thought out background vocals? BEP's "Where is the love" and Marc Anthony's "I need to know" come to mind. So smooth and tasty. Do you find less is more in terms of track count or is there more happening here then we realize? Any tips you can share would be great. Panning, Compressors, FX, anything you feel like sharing!

Thanks a bunch! Cheers!

Matt
