How to Stack Plugins to Emulate Hardware - Vocal Compression

This mini course (3 Videos) will help you solve these problems:

  • Your vocals are not popping out from the mix. They are getting buried.
  • You are having a hard time finding the right settings for vocal compression.
  • You are convinced that you need new plugins to get better mixes.

You don't need new plugins.

I filmed this course with the Waves CLA 76, UAD 1176A, and UAD LA2A Legacy. None of these plugins are "New", and they've been around for a while. You can do every technique in this course with stock plugins. I teach you what to listen for, how to build a signal chain of processing, and give you a comparison against the real hardware. 

Lessons in the Course:

Part 1 (10:52) I give practical advice on how to make plugins push harder in a mix, while doing less work. It's something that only plugins can do with a click of a mouse, and yet we rarely take advantage of this technique.

Part 2 (9:58) An extremely simple trick that causes the compressors to behave in a totally different way. It's a subtle trick, and yet makes all the difference in the world to getting the hardware-like sound.

Part 3 (9:11) The missing link for making a plugin have all the complexity and character of hardware compressors.
