    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   As I’ve had the opportunity to mix a lot more often lately, I’ve spent more time working on my vocal effects. The techniques I’m using currently are really a mashup of things I gleaned from Dave Pensado and his guests, my own experience and tastes and conversations with other front of house guys. Please note that this post is descriptive, not prescriptive. There’s no magic here, just a few things that I’ve been… View this post
