Good article, David. Thanks for posting the link!

Under 'Quick Tips' near the end of the document, it mentions the below...

"Avoid de-esser's. This is a form of compression that reduces that harshness of sibilant S sounds in the voice. These are great for sung vocals, but sound unnatural on spoken word recordings."

This makes me wonder if maybe the article is orientated more towards the spoken word rather than the sung word.

Nevertheless, there's lots of good information within smile

Lately I've been lazy with compression on vocals. My DAW has a 'channel strip' plugin that has high pass filtering, compression and EQ and a noise gate and there are 'male vocal condenser' and 'male vocal dynamic' presets and I tweak the high pass filter settings on those and that's about it. For what I do which is basically recording to document songwriting, it suits my needs well. I will see about comparing the tips here vs what those presets have enabled.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac review on www.guitaren.dk!

www.guitaren.dk has recently reviewed Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac, which can be read here.

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.

Band-in-a-Box®: Part of The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig!

Check out the latest Sweetwater article from Mitch Gallagher: "The Ultimate Desktop Guitar Practice Rig" - he's included Band-in-a-Box!

"The king of backing track creation, in my opinion, is Band-in-a-Box (BIAB). It can do everything from country to jazz to metal, with a huge array of instruments and options. There is a great selection of songs and BIAB tracks available for free on the web, so you don’t even have to make your own."
