    More often than not I end up carving 120-180, bump 1.5-3 and add a little air 12khz and up.
    What other tried and true or even really weird ways do you guys mix vocals to get them present ?

    I place more effort on mic placement, choice of mic and mic pre as well as the choice and use of compressors and eq than just trying to use eq alone. Also, the arrangement is very important as you need space for the vocal beyond just eq and panning of instruments.
