The lead vocal is typically the most important part in a mix in modern music. You want it sit just right against the other tracks while remaining balanced and featured at the same time. Today’s delay trick can really help your vocals do just that. It’s a good one and I use it on practically every mix I do!

It’s Time For A Little LPF

You may recall a few days ago we covered the concept of using a high pass filter (HPF) in your mixes to clean up the mud and save you headroom. Well, today’s trick involves using the opposite, a low pass filter (LPF) on a delay plugin to create the perfect effect for giving your vocal ambience without washing it down in reverb. Enjoy!
