Room will not be a big part of a pop vocal but yeah thats the idea. Minimize the amount of EQ auto you need to do - unless you're working on an indie record in which case there is no such thing as EQ auto heh

Not to discredit the test which was well done, but singing and speaking are apples and oranges.

The part that "If it was honky enough that it needed EQ to be usable, we would never use them here". Care to share a track with a vocal 6" away on a U87 without any EQ?

Hang tight y'all... I'll upload a small test a little later...
