Background vocals are fun, but they can be frustrating at times: so many tracks, so little time.
Before actually mixing them, part of the professional sound you've heard in countless records is achieved by having a solid method in preparing them.
Your workflow and approach will be key to being able to shape them the best way for your tracks.
In this video, Fab unveils his method to keep things under control when your song is empowered by some beautiful (and no longer dangerous) background vocals.

Am I the only one having troubles loading this video? I get the same issue with the "imagine dragons" tutorial.

Shazam! Lovely video :) wondering about those stereo track bvs (gringos) and if there's a video about that recording set up?

Great organization video! Love it when you get a session with more than 100 tracks. Instead of kicking and screaming, keep cool and organize:) Thanks for the tips!

Ben, after looking at the menus I still can't find this command. HD only ? I'm using non-HD version of PT. tnx.

@Gary - At the bottom of the "assign track output" menu there's an option to create a "new track" that makes the aux, maps the input/output and names it all in one step, no secret commands necessary.

This was really great. Lots of very sensible, useful tips and strategies. I would love to actually see how the vocal bus was doubled for parallel compression, including input and output designations. That part actually raised more questions than it answered. :)
Since I use Logic 9, I can't simply duplicate an Aux - but I could, for example, use AUX 8 and AUX 9, and "mult" Bus 5 to feed both.
Thanks again — much appreciated!
