    ^Question on the topic.

    For you dudes that do, what kinda stuff do you like from POD Farm to spice vocals up? Any tips/advice?

    For you dudes that don't, why's that?

    Just curious.

    :)

    I have used it's de-esser before, didn't work very well (read: didn't seem to actually f'ing de-ess with any settings). I use the API preamp model on a lot of things, including the vocals. It adds a nice warmth/fullness and smooths the top end. That's about it though, normally I'm running RVox (waves) and then the API model after that, usually all I need on vox.

    i use the preamps on keys

    i wish more eq plugins were available in general that did stepped intervals like the api model (+3, +6, etc) i rarely need anything between.

    Really? When I used the Waves API plug at college I found that despite loving the sound of the eq the 2db steps drove me crazy, even 1db at a time I could live with.

    Thanks for the replies, dudes!

    I'm digging the Api model for vocals too.

    I´ve found that the de-esser is pure garbage (crap all over the signal) and the compressors are more for coloration than signal control. The Vintage UK is the only preamp model that I use, but not for vocals.

    All in all, for vocals I´m better with Nasty VCS, SpitFish, ReaComp, ReaEQ and ReaGate.
