SoundSpot Vocal 5 for 5 Deal
Lead vocals are often the most important element in a mix. To get lead vocals to jump out of a mix and not get buried in the music, a technique called ‘vocal thickening’ is used widely throughout the industry. Usually, this technique requires multiple channels and plug-ins to achieve the desired results.
When designing VoxBox however, Soundspot’s aim was to create a plug-in that simplifies the vocal thickening process, without compromising on quality. VoxBox helps you widen and thicken your lead vocals in a simple and intuitive way, while being light on your CPU and keeping your mixing chain simple.
A well-balanced stereo image is essential in any mix. With regular panning, however, the options for placing a rich stereo track in the stereo field are limited. Propane gives you the option to pan the mid signal separately from the side signal of a stereo track. This way you can position the mono part of your track in the stereo field as you like, and use the side information to shape the width and stereo image of the track.
Besides giving you much more control in comparison to regular panning, this technique can be used very effectively for compensating for a stereo track with an unbalanced or lopsided centre, or for creative automated and tempo-synced stereo effects. Also, it is a very natural sounding alternative for panning a bus reverb.
Propane can be used in combination with the SoundSpot MSW1 stereo widener for full control over the placement of your stereo tracks and has a similar smoothed out bypass function for automation without pops or clicks.
A great sounding reverb is arguably one of the most important factors in achieving a full and atmospheric mix, and with that in mind, the SoundSpot® team set out to create a reverb that can deliver to the demands of modern production. After many months of development, Soundspot are proud to announce the arrival of the Oracle Algoverb.
The Oracle is a one-stop shop for all your creative reverb needs and can be used on any sound source to great effect. From adding a sense of depth to piano melodies to making synthesised soundscapes sound huge, the Oracle has it covered.
FireFly is a modern-style bus compressor with flexible options to optimize your track’s transients and stereo image. In addition, it features a sidechain filter for compressing tracks with loud kick and bass parts, and an analog mode that introduces non-linear colouration for warmth as well as adaptive noise generation for character and perceived loudness. With its separate left and right wave and reduction graph, FireFly gives you a flexible and intuitive way of compressing groups of instruments or your entire mix with ease.
