Hi Johnny,
You noted in the Channel Strip that ?Medium? would help stop any plosives or sibilance from cutting through. I?m currently in the process of mixing one of my songs and am experimenting with the Channel Strip settings that you used in this video such as:
Compression: 68.5%
Medium
LC (Low-cut): ON
Frequency: 79.8%
The settings have greatly improved my vocal tracks. However, I still have a little ?crispiness? (most likely because it wasn?t the best audio capture). I did do gain staging (during track prep) and am currently at about -5.0 dB when I start experiencing the sibilance issue.
Should I reduce the gain more and increase the compression? Or is there something else I could do or use to help soften the sibilance?
Thank you in advance for your help.

I would say you're off to a good start. Actually the "Fast" setting should take out even more plosives. As for the "Crispness" try the High cut just a tad and see if that helps.
