Academy Dashboard Forum Studio DAWs Reaper Warren's Vocal Thickening Trick Reply To: Warren's Vocal Thickening Trick

    That's a good idea. Try both. I seem to remember in one of Warren's videos (it could have been a Pro Mix Academy video) Warren did it as I described but I think that was to also to emulate the Eventide H3000 sound. You are right that in the video you have referenced he does not seem to alternate the delay. However the delay you see in the plugin by default will widen the stereo effect for sure. It tricks the brain into thinking that the sound is coming from further away due the difference in times the sound arrives at each ear caused by the different delay lengths.

    I see you checked out the Wave Rider emulation in Reaper, did you check out the Dolby A trick? That one is hardly known about and very little is on the internet. That also does great things for vocals.
