I am working on a recording and want to make the vocal sound like a late 50's jazz vocal. Think Dinah Washington, Nina Simone. The recording at the moment sounds too perfect ('cos it is!) Not really sure what makes up this retro sound; frequency range, EQ I guess, as well as the usual compression and reverb? I used one standard Apple AU to limit the frequency range, and from memory centred it on about 6300Hz - it's a female vocal (alto). Making that range too extreme got a good imitation of a megaphone - not quite the effect I wanted but will remember that for the future. I really don't think I can achieve it with the standard AUs I have. Not sure if I should be looking Mic Modelling, digital "tube" pre-amp AU's. Can anyone suggest some tools to look at. Free AU's are always very nice but I am also willing to to spend on some AU's say upto $200.
