- It is best to start with a factory preset as a guide, and adjust your vocal reduction settings slowly. Presets are displayed by clicking the ‘Presets” button
- Target – Adjusting the “Target” sets the target frequency of the music track to be processed. For singers with lower voices the setting will be lower end frequencies, for singers with higher voices the setting will be higher higher frequencies.
- Width – Adjusting the “Width” expands or contracts the size of the processed portion of the audio spectrum around the target. So, if the vocalist has a short range, then set the Width to a lower value, if the singer has a wide range, set the Width higher. The factory settings are a good guide.
- Intensity – Intensity is the level of vocal reduction. (To avoid audio artifacts in processing, please try not to add more vocal reduction than needed.)
- Note: Other center channel elements(i.e. kick drum and snare) may be reduced along with the vocal track when intensity is increased. Find your desired balance. Excessive intensity levels may produce audio artifacts (such as a “ringing” sound)
