Curated from the free Into The Lair (ITL) video tutorial series, Grammy Award–winning mix engineer Dave Pensado bestows his tips and techniques from years of recording vocals. The vocal sound in a production can be the differentiator between an amateur and a pro-level mix, and in these vocal-focused ITL episodes Dave covers the ins and outs of mixing your vocals.
Dave goes over EQing lead vocals to fit in your mix, getting background vocals to blend perfectly, understanding how to use compression to make a vocal jump out and mixing vocals using various types of EQ, compression and effects.
Dave then covers fixing “over de-ess’d” vocals, manipulating the top end on vocals, incorporating delay effects onto your vocals and applying vocal mixing techniques that Dave used for the legendary group Earth, Wind & Fire.

I think this is a good format for the 'Into The Lair' series. Dave is one of the real guys in the big chair and many of us, if not all, could learn things from him and/or think about different ways to accomplish mixing tasks. Don't let the laid back delivery fool you, because he will say in one sentence what will take you an hour or hours to experiment with.
