Ideally these will be freeware but paid ones also considered. I have a UAD-1 and Powercore cards so these plugins can also be considered. At the moment I am experimenting with using a compressor such as 1176LN followed by Argotlunar (http://argotlunar.info/) to give the vocal some 'dirt'
So maybe a good compressor, something to rough it up a bit and a bit of EQ? Am I missing anything that might add something?
IdeaS for chains/techniques for making a vocal sound more dark/rough/dirty are welcome Tips for how to use the plugins to get the desired effect would also help.
