Waves Vocal Rider Automatic Level-Riding Plug-In Details

Waves Vocal Rider is the first of Waves pioneering new series of Mix tools. Simply put, Vocal Rider rides the levels of vocal tracks, automatically.Instead of manually riding the physical mixing console fader, or tediously drawing in each individual level change on a DAW track, Vocal Rider does it for you, making it a true timesaver. All you need to do is set the target range of the vocal level in relation to the rest of the mix. Then, Vocal Rider compensates for all deviations from the target, intelligently raising or lowering the vocal volume, instantly. And unlike everyday compression, Vocal Rider adds absolutely no additional coloring to the track.

The new Vocal Rider Live component includes an exclusive Spill control to differentiate the vocal from background instrumentation and noise, for better tracking and performance.

    Great demo video at the Waves website

    Ever have trouble getting a vocal to sit in the mix? I have. Too much compression and the vocal gets boxy. Not enough and it's jumping out all over. Level automation works but it takes FOREVER to get it right. Enter this lil guy. It's easy to set up (if you know how to use side-chaining in your DAW). There's very few controls and they're pretty straight forward - especially if you watch their demo video. There's also a manual here: www.waves.com/manuals/plugins/Vocal-Rider.pdf if you're curious how it works. This plug-in saves me so much time and gets fantastic results without affecting the vocal sound.
