Pro Tools: Achieving Better Vocal Sounds Technique : Pro Tools Notes This month we are going to look at a range of techniques you can try to help you produce a better vocal sound for your project. Mike Thornton In a vocal session you would normally record a number of takes and/or do drop-ins to patch up an otherwise good take. Vocal compositing or 'comping' for short is usually the first stage in producing a good vocal line. The first is to use multiple Pro Tools tracks with the same processing applied to each. The other approach is to use Pro Tools's Playlists feature. If you go for the second approach, it is usually easier to create a new Playlist as you record each new take, but it is possible to create a set of Playlists afterwards by spotting each take from the region list into a new Playlist on a Vox Comp track. Fattening Your Vocal Sound Once you have comped your master vocal track, there are other tricks you can apply to improve the vocal sound further. Use small amounts of doubling via a very tight delay.
