  1. lol, I have all these level problems
    a vocoder expects a compressed to hell signal ๐Ÿ˜‰
    it looks like he doesn’t know what he is doing.

    1. and?
      do you think anything of what he is doing sounds good?
      I dont.
      its not the plugin that sounds bad. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      besides I see 2 vocoders and only one compressor and I hear distortion everywhere
