Mixing R&B Vocals With Logic Pro Stock Plugins

In this video, I’ll show you how to use the stock plugins in Logic Pro for Mixing R&B Vocals. One of the more difficult issues to fix for beginner mixers is harsh, sibilant vocals. Logic Pro does not have the best DeEsser plugin for this purpose. Luckily, I will show you a solution in this video where we will use the sidechain option on the stock Compressor plugin. Using this setup, you can dial in a setting to tame specific, problematic frequencies in your vocal recordings.

  1. Hi Sean. I just ran through your video. Fascinating how I learnt so much. Changed my workflow. Been looking on how to change my vocal mixing. I downloaded and installed. Where in Logic do I find these presets now after I put it in the bus

    • same. I think its because its not a audio plugin file. its a freakin (.cst) which is some type of digital drawing/canvas file , I don’t even know why its on there but . C’mon Sean we need the preset man lol

      • It’s a cst file (channel strip setting) and it’s loaded on a bus or aux channel. The instructions on where to install it are at the bottom of the post.

    • You need to create an aux track and bus your vocals to that. Then you can load the preset on the aux track after you’ve installed to the location I listed in the post.

  2. I’m from Africa Namibia, I love your tutorials a lot thank you so much. do you have a tutorial on how to use buses…? I’m kinda new to logic pro x..

  3. This was an awesome tutorial. Do you have a mixing template in logic for RnB? Template One is strictly for Hip Hop, right?
