The Best All-in-One Vocal Processing Suite
AVA Vocal Flow is an all-in-one vocal processing suite complete with 7 routable mixing elements along with input and output controls. Vocal Flow provides the ultimate mixing workflow for achieving pristine vocal mixes efficiently without any extra hassle.
The elements included are:
- Vocal Character: A unique 2-band vocal EQ designed to "follow" the pitch of the vocal notes.
- 32c Channel EQ: A 4-band EQ complete with High & Low Filters. Directly based on the Harrison 32c consoles’s highly sought after channel EQ.
- De-Esser: A specialized Compressor for removing sibilance in vocals or speech. Based on the X-Tool DSP found in Harrison MPC digital consoles.
- Leveler: A handy Compressor derived from the Harrison Mixbus channel strip DSP.
- Vocal Effects: Chorus, Delay, and Reverb for livening up vocal recordings.
- Master Section: Includes controls for Routing, Polarity, Input and Output Trim.
The Vocal Character is a one-of-a-kind vocal EQ that "follows" the pitch of the notes sung in a recorded vocal track and shifts the EQ curve accordingly along the frequency spectrum. This allows you to alter the actual character of vocals by adjusting the body and clarity of each note.
This module contains a simple and intuitive implementation of Harrison’s renowned De-Esser algorithm. It is primarily used to attenuate harsh frequencies caused by sibilance in speech and vocals.
The Leveler is a unique compressor derived from the Harrison Mixbus channel strip. While it has adjustable Threshold and Attack, the Ratio and Release parameters are fixed so that it has a very low Ratio and a very fast Release. This provides an ideal setting for "leveling out" vocal mixes to help maintain consistent level throughout. In addition to the Attack and Threshold controls, the Leveler’s Output Trim can be used to add make-up gain as needed.
32c Channel EQ:
Modeled after the famed Harrison 32C channel EQ, the Equalizer element offers 4 bands with variable frequency and gain along with 2 versatile filters.
The Chorus module is based on the Harrison XT-MG Micro Glide plug-in and can be a useful tool for adding width and depth to a vocal recording.
The Delay module is specifically designed for adding slapback delay to vocals.
Unlike the the other modules, the Delay and Reverb effects are processed in parallel with the main signal path, so they are set to always return at the end of the signal chain to be blended with the main signal path. This routing is meant to emulate the traditional method of using effects sends/returns on an aux track in a DAW.
The Reverb module is useful in altering the spacial characteristics of vocals.
Like the Delay, the Reverb is processed in parallel with the main signal path, so the effect always returns at the end of the signal chain and is blended with the main signal path. This routing is meant to emulate the traditional method of using effects sends/returns on an aux track in a DAW.
The Input, Output, and Routing sections at the bottom of the plug-in window contain the plug-in’s master controls for routing the order of elements, adjusting input/output trim, and inverting polarity.
