    This article is provided by the Pro Audio Files.   There are certainties in life: everyone is mortal and the vocalist will ask for reverb in the headphones. Unfortunately, only one of these has a solution. Vocalists, more then anyone need to have a good headphone mix. Mind you, everyone benefits from a great mix. But, nobody is more exposed than a vocalist for the sheer reason that the voice is a direct expression of emotion. Headphone mixes are amongst… View this story
