HI anyone help? Heres the scenario.... project studio, recording a demo I recorded a female vocal with a decent mic (AKG C4000) I tend to record clean with no effects or compression, and add later. Whilst she was overdubbing, she had one earphone on and one off... The mic picked up the background noise of the tracks she was listening to through the headphones.. un-be-known to me..not much of a problem until mix down...I'm using Logic Platinum with VST plug in effects on this demo. When I compressed her vocal to fatten it up, it raised the background noise and gave it a nasty hiss.. now, how do i get rid of it? I tried de-essing which worked to an extent and also a noise gate but i'm unsuccessful with that... its too choppy... Is there a specific default setting, or will attack and release help? if so what should i try, and what settings? Should I have gated it in the first place whilst recording? I also have a behringer (budget range) mic pre-amp which has de-esser, gate, tube compressor e.t.c. I usually use this out board gear when recording on a tape machine-during mix down... Should I have used this whilst recording? Any help please?
