Amazing Randy. I have also found that doing some coupled eq’ing can help the vox too. This depends on the method of production but if the song is guitar/vox based, you could boost the guitar in the same vicinity as your vocal, or to any degree that help’s the vocal carve the spot. Or in hip hop, add the same bell curve to the kick, as you would with the vox, and in the same general range. The vox takes on a little of the energy provided by the counter element of the mix. Mix to taste. Definitely not a rule, but something to try.
The coolest feature of Voxformer is its one-knob vocal compressor. Using only a single knob, you can get a tight, open and definitive professional vocal sound with an excellent articulation instantly. You do not have to worry about common ratio and make-up gain controls since they are automatically selected by the advanced compression algorithm while the attack and release parameters are stored in a mode preset. Moreover, Voxformer features two compressors of this type, allowing you to apply either a two-band or a two-stage (serial) vocal compression.
When you solo an instrument, a good use for EQ is a highpass (low-cut) filter. Filter out frequencies below the lowest fundamental frequency that the instrument produces. Here’s one way to do that: Start with a highpass filter set to a Q of and a frequency of 40 Hz. While playing the track, gradually raise the filter frequency until the sound starts to thin out, then back off a little. Filtering out the deep lows on each instrument and vocal reduces breath pops, low-frequency leakage, and rumble from traffic and air conditioning.
