Vocal Doubler Tips
- The results sound great if you run Vocal Doubler on clean, “dry” vocals (vocals that don’t have reverb or other effects). The digital signal processing in Vocal Doubler could interact with any effects you leave on the track, potentially causing unintended artifacts, like popping noises.
- Creating a stacked vocal effect from a single vocal is an ideal use case. Running it on a background vocal bus can lead to some artifacts (but is fun!).
- Want a stronger doubling effect? Try adding multiple Vocal Doublers.
