Delay Your Lead Vocal

 

In the previous article you put a stereo double effect on the vocal track to give it some interest. Now you will be adding a long  delay. Yet another color to the voice track.

 

 

1) Add a Long Delay to your Lead Vocal track's insert.

In this article, I am dealing with MOD DELAY III (mono) in Pro Tools. See the Figure 1 above.

 

2) Set up the Long Delay as shown in Figure 1.

Notice that the Mix level favors the dry channel by quite a lot (only 15% of the delay is going back into the track). You do not want to have the echo effect, which is very dramatic, overwhelming the lyrics or distracting the listener from them. The singer is after all, singing the praises of _____ (fill in your own higher authority here) and you don't want your effect to get in the way. Also notice that the delay is more than 2/3 of a second. Put too much of this in and it will sound just plain wrong in your song.

 

3) Fine-tune Long Delay's Mix level while listening to all the instruments.

The idea here is to have the repeats just poke through after the singer has finished a line.

 

4) Use Solo to compare the two.

Notice that in Solo the Echo is very pronounced but in the mix the other instruments mask much of the energy.

 

5) Get a good rough mix going (but don't try to nail it), then save your work.
