Helping Lead Vocals Stand Out with the Doubler (Tip)

Sep 14, 2014

Tricks of the Mix: Find out how to bring that extra something to your mix using Waves plugins, brought to you by Waves Artists, Product Specialists and enthusiasts like yourself.

My favorite application of the Doubler plugin is to have the left side at +6 cents and the right side at -6 cents, without much delay. This is similar to the old SPX 90 patch #23, which was magic on vocals in a pop or rock mix. It really helps the lead vocal pop out of a dense-sounding track without being too loud.
