because by riding the levels first you're reducing the amount of compression you need to use which will allow you to tame your low end and still retain some punch and life

Anyone used Vocal Rider on bass (or Bass Rider on vocals)? Does it work?

Seems kinda silly to spend $300 on two plugins that do essentially the same thing...

That's what Waves also suggests. But, the other way around is also useful IMO, because that way your compressor/s get to process signal more evenly (i.e.allows you to use them effectively for envelope altering, not for squashing the signal).

I use Vocal Rider on bass to even out my transients to ease the load on my compressors. I've read in other forums how other people use Vocal Rider on bass too.

Waves will say that the plugins have different algorithms for their respective instrument, but I think Vocal Rider works better on Bass than it does on Vocals...

My 2c..

Haven't tried Bass Rider FYI but Vocal rider works just fine. It's like a bit of compression/dynamic control without squashing the transient/waveform!

4 band multi compressor.

I set mine about 0-60 60-150 150-400 and 400-20,000hz

Use a full band comp after as well, but i use high ratios on the multiband. 10:1 ish on the bass frequencies, so your losing 5db on average, but only light on the top band ( everything over 400hz ). make up the db loss with the individual band post gain. If any note booms, it'll get flattened out without losing brightness.

works fine for me.. ( and I can't afford another plugin of any description.. )

i always level the bass track visually using the clip gain in cubase so there's no much difference between sections or any huge peaks, and it took no more than a minute,i don't know if that would be the same as using Bass Rider but it can be a work around if you don t have the plugin.
