Vocal RiderNative from Waves automatically rides the levels of vocal tracks during mixdown. Vocal Rider relieves the engineer from having to manually ride a physical mixing console fader, or from drawing in each individual level change on a DAW track.
All the engineer has to do is the target range of the vocal level in relation to the rest of the mix. Then, Vocal Rider compensates for all deviations from the target, intelligently raising or lowering the vocal volume, instantly. And unlike everyday compression, Vocal Rider adds absolutely no additional coloring to the track.
The Vocal Rider Live component includes an exclusive Spill control to differentiate the vocal from background instrumentation and noise, for better tracking and performance.
