Hi. For female voice over recording on a CAD E100S,, what mic setting should I use for PAD (-10dB or 0dB) and Hi-Pass? Thank you!
Asked by: Anonymous
I use none of the above. You don't need a PAD because a singer is not going to be so loud that you need it. As far as the high pass filter; there won't be much happening below 80Hz with your female singer, so you could engage that and not have to EQ it afterward.
