Switch the piece that's in front of the mic.

That's too bad. If it's possible without being tactless, can you encourage him to work on his doubling skills? He's gonna need to be able to do that.

Note though that your doubled tracks don't need to be loud in the mix. They're there for thickening, not really to be perceived, so much. Is the phasing so bad if they're mixed pretty low?

Yes. Get something fancy.

The vocalist/mic/pre combination w/wo compression is your vocal sound. A thin vocal into a thin mic into a thin pre will sound (drumroll please)... THIN!

If you can't change anything then you can mess with placement and room acoustics (baffling, etc.). You can also give the vocalist bad habits like drinking and smoking. If you get a good take, but he dies early, well you still got a good take! Unfortunately, you may not get the take anyway and you just indirectly killed someone. tutt If you can then start experimenting with whatever mics and pres you have or can get your hands on. Find out what works for you and in your room.

Try add a little distortion to the vocals. Before buying anything check out free vst plug TLs Saturated driver for example. Then compress.

And before buying UAD, check out stillwell rocket. This is a great comp for beefing up anything. And it does parallel. Try slam it real hard and add in to taste via parallel knob. Try all button mode!!!

They got a free fully functional demo without iLok and stuff. And it's very resonable priced.

Cheers!

PS: Try get the guy to perform a usable double. Really can make things easier!
