Is this the vocal plugin we need? I think it might be! Sonnox has a pretty solid track record of creating exceptional plugins. Not only do they know how to make quality software but they know how to create ones that solve problems and make it easier to mix.
What I find great about this plugin is how it sets up the vocals beautifully for any further processing. The Auto-Input Level control is glorious; it automatically adjusts the level to ensure that it’s hitting the compressor better and more efficiently. Essentially, it’s taking away the need to manually adjust clip gain, which is a massive time saver.
Coupled with that are the Compression, Saturation, and Soften controls, all of which help to process your vocal and make it sit nicely in the mix.
So far, I’ve found it more useful to use it relatively minimally, just enough to control the vocal nicely so I can do lots of other crazy things after too. That said, the processing will likely be less crazy now that the vocal is already better prepared.
Hats off to Sonnox for always coming up with the goods!
Hope you enjoy the video, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
