Hello all, I am a baritone bass vocalist and would like to improve my sound. I am using a standard handheld wired dynamic mic, and I'd like to incorporate my Peavey CEL-2 (Compressor Expander Limiter) into the chain. My projection is often over powering (causing distortion) and my soft parts are sometimes hardly audible. It is my understanding that this Peavey unit is supposed to help control my harshness and bring my softness out of the mud. Are there any engineers using this unit and if so could you offer some settings (dial positions) that I can use to put my vocals where they should be? I usually keep mic 1" - 4" from my lips or farther away when singing in higher than normal pitches for my low range capabilities. My singing style is much like Country Singer Josh Turner although not as low but close. My low range is in the mud and my high range causes distortion. I would like to keep mic close all the time and achieve the same levels all the way from low to high range without having to go into or away from the mic. BTW - I am planning a very near future purchase of the Electro Voice RE20 microphone to help even out my sound and introduce some warmth to my sound. I have heard from hundreds of listeners that love my laid back mellow tone and I'd just like to improve upon that. I am on a very limited budget and can't afford really top dollar high-end equipment at this time but I want to sound like a million. Currently I am performing from home studio through computer to a website. I would appreciate all directions and suggestions to obtain a better sound. If I need other types of equipment then I will consider those suggestions, I just want to sound better.
