I just upgraded to Cubase Pro 9 but haven’t even taken it for a full spin. Most of my issues usually revolve around my vocal tracks not having the sparkle and shine I need to take the sound to the next level.
Waves announced today their Black Friday deal, and I was thinking about the Vocal bundle: https://www.waves.com/bundles/vocal
Apart from the doubler, compressors, and the de-esser, I’m not sure what other plugins I’d need to improve the quality of the recorded vocal tracks. But then I realized, CUBASE already has a bunch of great stuff. Are there built in plugins that already do these tasks for me? I don’t want to spend money on a plugin bundle if Cubase already has built-in support for the most used functions?
PS: I already bought the Vocal Rider plugin on a special a few months ago. I joke with my sound engineer that it’s like putting him in a box on my computer! He rides my vocal fader when I perform live.
