I have been tweaking some Fx chains in my DAW of choice (Reaper). To facilitate comparing them, I made this video. Using the same original recording, the audio switches between the three different Fx chains.
What do you think? Which do you prefer, and why?
In case you are wondering:
- “B” is based on this free “broadcast chain” available at the Reaper Stash
- “R” is based on the tips outlined in a ReaperBlog video “Dialog FX Chain with stock plugins in REAPER DAW“
- “W” is based on paid plug-ins I purchased from Waves.com
You can jump to 6:10 in the video to get straight to the details on each Fx chain.
