Are you tired of singers who want you to keep adding more compression to their vocals? Rather than trying to accomplish all your “squishing” with just one compressor pureMix's Fab Dupont shows you how to use multiple compressors, in a civilised manner, to get a great compressed tone and level without such a smothered sound.
From peak limiting to gently compressing, Fab goes deep into the art of compression. He shows you how to compress vocals using both the classic holy chain of vocal compression (1176 into a LA-2A) and a powerful modern day compressor (the Dangerous Music Compressor).
Then Fab follows his ear and turns a compressor into a de-esser using the compressor's sidechain input.
Compression is probably the most used tool ever. Go further in the learning process of using it on vocals for a more controlled sound. Following up on their Transparent Vocal Compression, if you are still having trouble with singers who want you to over compress their vocals, this tutorial could help you out.
He unveils his most useful tricks like double stage compression and how to turn a compressor into a deesser. This will give you all the tools you need in order to work with singers.
