Plug-In For Vocal Presence And Punch


db audioware has announced a series of Studio Specialist plug-ins designed to capture complex audio engineering techniques in simple, efficient user interfaces, saving time and effort for the busy studio engineer. The first release in the series is the Vocal Intensifier .
db say that Vocal Intensifier gives vocal tracks added punch and presence, to make them stand out in the final mix. They tell us that it uses an advanced studio technique called "parallel compression" (also known as "New York compression"), often used for drum tracks but here specially tuned for vocals. The advantage of this technique is that it boosts the loudness and presence of the vocals without destroying the dynamics of the original performance.
