Don’t forget the words. Words are the most important thing. If you can’t hear the words there’s no point to what you do. [When mixing vocals with a band] it’s just natural balance. You can use delays and some effects you can pull like a doubler. It really comes down to the stage levels and how you balance the sound around that vocal.
