Sonic Scoop posted a great write up from Bassy Bob on using Decapitator in the mix. He talks about the subtle side and how small amounts can do big things. Here’s a snip:
“My most recent experience has been using Decapitator in a very subtle way on vocals.
My current lead vocal chain usually consists of an EQ, a De-Esser and a Compressor. Recently I’ve been replacing the EQ with the Decapitator, which is a saturation/distortion plug, but the effect is that it adds harmonics to the vocal, and that equates to more high or low frequency detail, which sounds really musical inside the track”
