Nothing gift wraps a vocal better than some tasty reverb. My favorite reverb for voice is a natural acoustic space. But, as reverb rooms are an endangered species, you’ll likely use a digital reverb. Reverb settings are a matter of taste, but two parameters are particularly important: diffusion and predelay. Low diffusion on vocals with its sparser reflections, prevents the voice from being overwhelmed by too lush a reverb sound. And predelay works well in the 50-100 ms range. The delay lets the first part of the vocal punch through without reverb, while the more sustained parts get the full benefit of the reverberated sound.
