hey all, i've been tracking my band's record for the last couple months, and we're about to transition into the mixing stage. i have a couple questions that would help me out tremendously: 1. regarding doubled vocals, is there a general practice regarding how the second vocal track is produced? i know that it is usually significantly lower in the mix, but is it usually eq'd any differently than the main track, or is the goal to have the tracks be as sonically similar as possible? 2. are there any comp/eq plugins/hardware available where only the transients that get comp'd are eq'd? the reason i ask is there's an acoustic guitar track for one of our songs that this kind of intricate fingerpicking part, and most of the downbeats are played on the lowest string, and the signal for those notes is always a little hotter than the other notes. i'd like to set up a compressor to bring those notes down a little bit, while also adding a slight eq to bring down some of the lows on that string. is this possible? all of the plugins i've seen that have compressor and eq apply the eq to the whole waveform. thanks for all your help in advance. maybe we can trade favors and once some of you respond to this thread i can start a new one where i share my patented "secrets of the pro's" drum replacement technique with you all. what a joke.
