Default What y’all think of my vocal tracking template

Wonder what ya'll think of my vocal tracking template.

I have record 1,2 lead 1,2 hook1,2 ads 1,2 and in & out1,2. All with

R DE esser -- pro q2 -- r compressor --- auto tune on every channel. That all goes to my vocal bus with

R d esser -- tg12345 ---avid lofi --- rvox ---- bx mix eq --- cla vocals plugin.

Then 1/16, 1/8 delay, plate, hall, Widener sends.

Also have a vocal parele with pro q2-- cla 76 and a limiter.

Listing a bunch of names of plugins leaves a lot to the imagination. For example to me it sounds amazing because I can perfectly imagine how many things I would do with them!

I don't know, how bad is your tracking?
Seriously, a vocal chain (or any instrument really) for me is something that gets built based on the particular needs of the track, even with the same singer/instrument there are many factors such as key, tempo, style, arrangement that will be different thus making a single chain useless most times. I think your plugin choices are excellent but not all of them might be needed or you might need other tools that aren't in your template. I have a template too but most times I just ditch everything on the vocal tracks and start from 0 after listening to the raw track.
Cheers

^+1

I try and mic it right first time round and add seasoning later if and where needed a touch here and maybe a lashing there..... I never record anything with the view that I would be using certain plug's. the only chain I generally (but not always) keep the same is the Mastering Chain.

Just my opinions(so please take it that way):

#1-why do people track with Autotune? How is a singer supposed to control their pitch when a plugin is second-guessing them? Using it during a mix to correct pitch or create an effect? Now that makes sense to me

#2-2 de-essers? Are they NEEDED? If so, I would look at changing microphones, pop filters or mic positioning. I do pop/rock/country/latin and probably use a single de-esser about 25% of the time(and 2 of them once in a blue moon). Having said that, the wrong mic, wrong placement or bad singers can certainly require lots of help

As for the rest, if it gives you the results you want, then it can't be bad Just don't get in a rut where you treat every vocal the same(when the song might need something quite different)
