I've heard that some guys use 2 Comps while Vocal recordings.Your opinion? (or any good set ups?)
When I was an assistant, my head engineer used to make me hook 2 compressors on the vocal chain: the first one (usually a Tube Tech CL1B) to actually compress the signal (and thus add character to it), the other being a compressor set as a limiter, to put a definitive treshold on the vocal level; this is a way of recording vocals that IMO can be used when you are dead sure of the way you want the vocal to sound; if you are not, a single compressor set at the right amount usually does just fine.
Separate names with a comma.
