Nasal offshoot thhread - Mixing a nasally Saxophone
« on: September 28, 2005, 08:06:06 PM »

Twice a year I have a jam in the studio and roll hard drive and just have people jam.  I mix it and send it out to everyone that played and past and prospective clients to promo the studio.

Anyway...... this year, we had a sax player that was quite good but the sound I captured is nasal sounding.

It's done.  Re-recording is NOT an option.

I've applied a lot of EQ and tried compression with very fast attack to smooth out the transients and have also tried various delays and reverbs.  I've made some progress but it needs more help.

Any suggestions would be very welcome

How would you smooth and de-nasal-fy a sax during mixdown?

Thanks!

I feel your pain.
the only thing that helps a bit is:
Cut the nasal fregs a bit mostly high highhmid (1.5k-6k)
Add a bit of body low-lowmid (400-1k)
maybe some kind of de-esser/expander

I'd run it thru a paranetric eq with the midrange boosted and set to a sharp "Q". Sweep thru the frequencies till it sounds a lot more nasally.  Drop the boost and cut at that frequency and increase the "Q width till the nasal sound is gone.
