Tips & Techniques:Vocals-split duties
This is something I do live a lot, but also with recorded bands. Especially with quick mixes. It involves splitting vocals into two mix channels.
Channel one of the two is the "natural" channel so I give it a mild EQ and maybe comp treatment.
Channel two is the "make-up" channel. I set a compressor to about 10:1 and get gain reduction on just about everything. Even the soft parts. With the EQ I hi-pass it somewhere around 200-300Hz (leave that stuff up to the other channel), and boost the mids or highs, whatever serves the song. You don't hear it when the singer is nice and strong, but as he/she dips down this helps to keep things clear.
This may be old news to some or sound crazy to others. I like it.heh
