Vocal Intensifier adds presence and punch
Vocal Intensifier is the first of db Audioware's new 'Studio Specialist' plug-ins. Designed to add punch and presence to your vocal tracks, it sports a simple user interface that shouldn't befuddle even novice audio engineers.
The plug-in is based on a technique known as parallel compression. This is often used on drums but, in this case, it's specifically tuned for vocals and promises to add loudness and presence without having a negative impact on dynamics.
The interface features just four knobs - EQ, Compression, De-Ess and Mix - so with a little experimentation, the idea is that just about anyone should be able to get useable results.
