I am looking for someone who can help mentor me with Logic pro and vocal EQ. I have watched tons of youtube videos. However, Ideally - I would like to go through a worked example with someone to comment on my approach and share their experience and approach - the best way to learn imo. Does anyone have the time and desire to help me learn?

Hi Tony, well, I don't claim to be an expert but I do enjoy mixing stuff and I use logic. PM me and we can see if I can help out.

maybe we should do some Logic worked examples here - preferably using stock plugins so all Logic users can try and reproduce what other Logic users do / have done

Would be cool! Then only problem is when using non-stock plugins which makes it difficult to reproduce.. We could make a logic session walkthrough/teardown streaming session at some point?

Logic x includes so many tools, for vocals or any recording really any third party in no way is Needed, perhaps only workflow preferences or gui . So sticking with stock my order is channel eq, compressor, reflect delay (slap back), exciter, vintage console eq. If a de_Esser is needed, which many times is, that goes last . I don't like reverb much on leads, plenty of YouTube's out there on why, so that's why I use a smack reflect delay.. I will use reverb on a send and use a small room or Plate , with it on an aux I can add from it to Just add environment, always using space designer for this and never without eqing the ir reverb to match the song. (use built in space designer eq, top right orange button in the plugin) Then eq the aux channel a bit to set it in the mix environment. For heavier stuff I prefer the side by side compression channel, where you send an aux full, load up that channel with some serious compression or vca/tube/console warmth and slowly bring that in for fatness, breath, and pop. Every person's voice will eq differently, never use preset,only to Just get creative or ideas if you stuck or puzzled. A good channel preset that was a good starter was the ol Male Creamy Lead vocal channel stock setting, check that out. That has a great slapback delay insert to learn from.

Great post. I agree that Logic provides tools for doing almost everything. I tend to use 3rd part products for a few reasons: - coloration: waves (I don't currently use, but have in the past), Slate (which I use) - these have channel strips designed to emulate the characteristics of different analog gear. Logic doesn't do that. - flexibility: desser (btw - you will get many opinions about first or last all supported by a ton of Internet posts, lol - I prefer first or right after initial eq, but that's me). Logic's desser is pretty limited - but there are multiband dessers out there which are very good and let you dial in on the frequencies you want more easily. I personally do not like delay or verb plugs on a track, but prefer them as an aux send. Showing my age I guess on that, but I prefer that since you get more uniformity in the verb. Delays, well, you can argue and I'll agree half the time - it depends on the vocal. I think you nailed the ost important part whic is each vocalist is different and even amongst a single singer's performances, they can vary if they have a wide range of styles and range. You adjust.
