Used on T-Pain's vocals for "Low", as stated by mixer Fabian Marasciullo. An image of the settings can be found [here](https://dt7v1i9vyp3mf.cloudfront.net/styles/news_large/s3/imagelibrary/I/IT_Aug_05-0808-A8QNBY62TJw2K_w4o2F85rPUJVNLNCqa.jpg). > "The RVox got rid of extreme peaks on both Flo and T–Pain's vocals. I used it to just clean things up if there were big level differences. But it's not hitting the vocals heavy, it only works when the vocals hit the threshold. It also has a great gating feature, and so it cleans up little blips here and there. The settings on all plug–ins were very similar for both Flo and T–Pain, because they have very similar voices. I had the McDSP Analog Channel only on T–Pain, though, basically to take off some edge. I use that plug–in when vocals are a little too brittle or bright. It really simulates hitting a tape recorder, and it also provides a little bit of analogue tape compression. It's a pretty good plug–in and you can select different tape recorders, like Tascam, Ampeg, Studer and so on. For this record I used the Studer preset.more
"I am a fan of saturation. The Waves SSL 4000–series stuff, I like the EQ on that, you can get distortion out of it that sounds like saturation. We have to use that subtly, but it works well on Guy [Garvey], not necessarily for air but for brightness. I like the McDSP AC1 and AC2 plug–ins and the DUY Tape's good, but they're all very subtle things, it depends where you put them in the chain. If you put them first, you can bring stuff out with EQ. I'm not scared of heavily compressing stuff, I do it quite a lot, but settings–wise, it's different all the time."more
