For example, if I export all of the instrumental files separately from Reason, upload them into Pro Tools, record vocals, and then bounce everything out. Then take that .wav and master it somewhere else... am I losing quality along the way? Another question: If I raise the high-end EQ of a vocal track by +6, would a De-Esser be pointless to use? And how do I go about removing the pop sounds/excessive S sounds? I used to record 2-3 inches away from the mic (right next to the pop filter), but I hear that I should have the pop filter about 5 inches away from the mic... maybe that's my problem haha. And last but not least, does it matter what order I use the plug-ins? Right now, my common sense has lead me to use De-Esser, a vocal Compresor, and then an EQ... followed by potentially Autotune/Melodyne or a Flanger/High pass filter. Thanks for all of your help!
