What are some standard effects to put on vocals? I find that when my vox are totally clean, they seem to lack what most recorded vocals have. I'm awful with effects. I can't make guitar effects, let alone vocal ones, at least at this moment. Where's do I start? All I'm sure of is reverb XD but everything else is a mystery. I've been to a recording studio and they have so many things! Are those all really necessary? Or can I cut a good track at home with my mic, mixer, and computer w Fruity Loops?
I hear a lot of singers double track some of the 'larger' vocal parts, like choruses and such, to give it a bigger feel. As in, they'll record themselves singing the part twice, and having one under the other. Also, I've heard a Chorus effect on some vocals, which seems to fill them out okay
Bit of reverb and delay is all my wife uses ....
Compression, reverb, delay, EQ. That's pretty much about it for "standard" usage.
