Help with Vocal Effects on my Desk

  1. Hey All,

    On my TASCAM 2488mk2 it has a range of Vocal Effects, I'm new to them and I would like some more detail on what they mean or do.

    Compression?
    De-Esser?
    Exciter?
     
  2. I can only answer your first one m8.

    Compression:

    A compressor is used to control the dynamic range of the audio you are recording. Vocals tend to have lots of peaks and dips, giving an uneven level, so a compressor is used to give a more frequent level to achieve more control over the audio.

    Basically, instead of manually adjusting your channel fader up and down to get an even level you would add a compressor.

    I hope this makes sense.
     
  3. Thanks mate! It makes perfect sense.
