I was wondering if pros use compressors when switching between normal voice and falsetto a lot. Josh Homme comes to mind.
Well, compressors are used VERY heavily on vocals, since they are typically the loudest track in the mix. And with the falsetto thing, the singers volume changes with the change to/from falsetto, so a compressor would be necessary.
They could very well do. Compressors are standard studio tools. The falsetto could have been done in a separate take or even a different track.
Thanks! Getting a vox comp or fx unit with a comp is now on my to-do list.
