    Widening Vocals
    Hey everyone, long time watcher, first time poster here :) I am currently watching the 'The Mix' tutorial, and wondered about one of the plug ins used here. I refer to the plugin used to 'widen' the vocals in part 38 of this tutorial. The Eventide 3000 factory. This plugin is like a magic wand! I have wondered my entire production life how to make vocals sound like this, big wide and full of presence! However, I dont have pro-tools, or the plugin, so my question is.. How do you 'thicken' vocals like this with Cubase 6? I have Komplete 8, and all the processing power that comes with that, so I'm sure theres something there somewhere. I just need a nudge in the right direction. Thanks for your time and patience all! :) Art.

    Hi Art, The Eventide 3000 is a very good Reverb/Delay effect plugin. But you can get similar results with other plugins of the same nature. In Cubase create a bus/aux channel. On this place a reverb, chorus, and delay plugins. The key here is subtlety. So use a small-medium reverb size. For the delay set a very short delay time. Between 10ms-30ms. And the same with the chorus. These bundled effects will act as doubling agents. Now send a bit of your vocals to this channel. As you start increasing the send level, you will notice how this widens the vocals and created a doubling effect to make them more present in the mix. Hope this helps.

    I reckon I can do that, thank you Gary I will try that next time I get the chance! :) I have often wondered whether combinations of plugins would provide these 'larger' sounds, just never really known which and how to go about it. This is a step in the right direction, very grateful, thanks. Art.
