Howard Lindeman

With numerous engineering stints at Record Plant and Hit Factory, Howard Lindeman takes his engineer/mixer experience to his current front-of-house position for Roberta Flack and Melissa Manchester. He'll also be mixing for Mark Isham at the upcoming North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland.

When you're working with a vocal-oriented artist or group, time is a major factor. A fix for placing a vocal in a group is to assign all instrumentation to two groups so that the stereo image remains the same as it was in the stereo bus. Bring those up to two group-out masters panned hard-left/right. Leave all of your vocals, lead and backgrounds on the stereo bus. Insert a digital delay on the left and right of that stereo group and increase the delay setting between 2 and 6 ms for left and right. (Remember to turn off any feedback gain settings.) You can then tune the distance between the band and your vocals. Then, time-delay your entire P.A. back to the drums using the delay inside the house crossover or EQ.
