    Hi everyone,
    I'm working on a prog-rock project right now where I'm mixing a singer with a voice which sounds like a cross between Roger Waters and Robbie Robertson. Very bassy and chesty. No matter what I do it sounds to bassy. Besides using a HP filter at 80Hz, What other frequencies are generally troublsome for a soft vocal?

    Try using the HP at 100hz. It helps quite a bit. Try boosting a bit between 12-15khz to add some airiness if necessary.

    hi Pass and bell cut all you need. up to 315hz? up to 500Hz? No rules....just right

    P.S. 80hz isn't beginning to get anywhere near wear you need...that's near bass guitar fundamental land

    Will try. Always a little afraid to cut 120-200 on vox. I don't want to loose warmth, but I suppose I can get it up in the 400-500 region ?
