It’s always a pleasure to receive technical questions about our audio production here at RPC Audio.
Lots of you have been asking about which processing plugins we use.
The Waves plugs are pretty much industry standard, and over the last few years have become very affordable. They’ll sit nicely in most DAWs from Cooledit and Audition to Pro Tools.
The main purpose of using plugins is for control. (Levels and getting everything to play nicely in the mix).
Of course you can also use them for vocal effects (verb, flanging, filters)
Here are a handful I use on a daily basis for production…
For voice EQ I prefer the Waves Linear EQ Broadband plug.
Maybe a controversial choice as it’s primarily a mastering plug but I love the open sound it gives and just prefer the sound to that of the REQ and Paragraphic EQ.
For voice processing my best friend is RVox. Easy to use, does the job and gets everything nicely under control. I may add an L1 after it if I feel I need to crank it up a bit.
RDeEsser is another essential plug that works very well, especially on female vocals.
I like to finish everything of with a touch of RComp which, used with a light touch, I find great as a mastering processor.
These are the settings I like to use on the mastering bus and aim for around 3db of gain reduction, using the gain slider to just tickle the limiter on the peaks.
These are the main plugs I use every single day on the majority of jobs.
When you’re launching a new station or rebranding a service, there’s so much to do. From sorting the schedule to the station logo,. it’s a long list and production is usually way down at the bottom.
You would not believe the amount of calls we get from stations needing a full package (always very welcome of course), that go like this….
‘When are you launching?’ I ask. ‘
‘Tomorrow’ is the reply. ‘…and we haven’t sorted any imaging yet’.
In radio, everything is last minute (usually 4pm on a Friday afternoon!). But that’s part of the beauty of the medium. It can be last minute, it can be immediate. Some of the best stuff is turned around when there’s the pressure of a deadline.
If you’re launching a new station, or re-branding your on air sound, have a look at our Complete Station Packages. We’ll sort your news, weather, travel, and sports beds. Do you some cool IDs, and Top of Hour cuts. Promos too if you need them.
Everything is customised with you supplying the voice over scripts. Or we can give you a hand with the creative part if you prefer (or you need to be off doing that job the Sales Manager has just given you).
Here’s an audio demo of some of the station stuff:
