When you guys are playing live what effects do you use on vocals? I've always liked bare bones no effects sounds, but getting more into playing the electric now and high reverb seems to go better, processed guitar=processed vocals? Any suggestions or input?

I've never been a fan of reverb on vocals. Just a tad maybe, but a lot of rooms have hard surfaces with natural reverb. If your vocaiist hasn't got a powerful voice then reverb can make him or her sound better/fuller. It really depends on the genre too.

Add digital delay of 10-20 ms to thicken your vocals or guitars, just a tad of reverb is all I would add. To my ears in a live setting all those room reverbs and long reverbs just get lost anyway.

Occasionally we have a song with long delay on the vocals and just change it up for that.

It all depends on the music and the venue. Like others said, most venues have more than enough reverb in them already. Sometimes a little chorus can fill out vocals. Not too much, though.

Much better to EQ for the venue, too - remembering that a floor full of bodies will absorb more high frequency, but an empty hard floor will be high-freq intensive.

I only like a tad bit of reverb, not much. We've been lucky that most of the places we play have sound guys, so I don't need to think about it.

Feedback suppressor with a 16ms tad of slap back and compression.

Light reverb, and I like a bit longer delay than a lot of people, but not real heavy. Just enough you can tell it slaps back. I like a single about half second delay for my guitar, a bit less for vocals.

As little as possible unless is a production piece to paint fluid vocal pictures

ETU!!!!! I've missed you too! Image

A lot's happened, but what doesn't kill you makes you more determined . . . I think, well I am. I'm digging your videos and the tune you have on your profile! I'm going in a more electronic direction as well and donig the video route because I honestly think that's where music is headed.

John, as you know I'm a big fan of doubling lead vocal tracks. Better than any other trick to thicken vocals.

I do this when I record only - sometimes triple and quadruple.

When I record I always do two tracks for vocals or guitars, a simple way to duplicate this live is a slight delay of 10-20 ms to thicken either up live.

This is a great little baby to have for singing live:

The TC Helicon VoiceLive GTX (has guitar effects also)

Here's the 14-minute demo you should see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1maYsISWd1A
