Sound Like A Vocal Effects Processor
Ever wonder why your pastor's voice doesn't sound like what you hear from other major ministries? Are you disappointed with the way your vocals sound on recordings and in your sound system? Now you can greatly improve the quality of your most important vocals with a vocal effects processor.
Your mixer was designed to give you basic level control, routing capabilities and tonal adjustment for your microphones. The sound you get from your mixer is fine for the majority of the mics you use. But if you want the best sound from your most important vocalists like your pastor or worship leader, then you might consider stepping up to a dedicated vocal effects processor like the TC Helicon VoiceLive 2 or the VoiceLive Touch Vocal Effects Processor. These devices are like mixer channel strips on steroids. They offer features that will make your most important vocals sound their best.
Good vocal effects processors incorporate high-quality mic preamps that will produce the best sound your mic is capable of with out adding the noise you find in lesser quality preamps that you would find in typical mixers. To make your vocal level's more consistent and stand out more in the mix, a voice processor will include a built-in compressor designed to work specifically with voices. The compressor will bring up the volume when the voice level is too quiet and bring down the volume when it's too loud. Built-in equalizers are designed to give you a full range of control from minute to broader range tonal adjustments to shape the sound of your vocals.
The audio coming out of one of these vocal effects processors will be superior to anything you could achieve by simply running your mics through the mixer. If you were to buy a mixer with the same features you would spend thousands more than if you only buy one or two processors for the people that need it the most.
Once your vocal has been processed, you'll have a clear, intelligible vocal sound that you can route to your house mixer, recording system, monitor system, etc.
