I am right now mixing a promotional video for a band's album and the lead singer did some voice over to be put in at the beginning over a montage with a song from the album playing under him.
It was recorded with the same mic as was used for the lead vocal of the album (a modified U-47) and so it's a bit duller than what I would like to sit in the mix as a VO.
I unfortunately don't have the greatest analog EQs available to me (right now it's a choice of Euphonix channels, APIs and a few old Klark Tekniks) and I am trying to add more presence to the voice.
As of now I have notched out the "CH"s (2.4K to 3.5K), the honk (700 to 900) and the boominess (200-250), and it sounds a bit too dull.
The EQs I have tried on it already just add back the sibilance and not a nice airy, natural, pleasing presence that my other room is set up for.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to add back that nice airy presence without adding back in the dirty, spitty sibilance other than adding top with EQ?
I've gone through a few chamber reverb presets and it's just not jiving.
Your suggestions and tales of experience is greatly appreciated.
