Vocal Rider is the first of Waves'' new series of mixing tools. This plug-in automatically “rides” the levels of vocal tracks. Instead of manually riding the physical mixing console fader or drawing in every level change on a DAW track, Vocal Rider does it automatically.
First, the user sets the target range of the vocal level in relation to the rest of the mix. Vocal Rider then compensates for all deviations from the target, raising or lowering the vocal volume. Unlike compression, Vocal Rider adds no additional coloring to the track.
Vocal Rider will soon be available from authorized Waves dealers and online.
