When you’re working on getting a vocal sound just right, switching between different plug-ins can quickly get on your nerves. That’s why complete processing chains like JST Howard Benson Vocals, Audified ToneSpot Voice Pro or even DJ Swivel’s The Sauce are so popular: They offer everything you need to fine-tune your vocals, without having to switch between various EQs, compressors and other effects.
Harrison Consoles has now released a complete vocal chain of its own as part of the AVA series. AVA Vocal Flow includes seven modules designed for vocal processing.
There are two EQs. According to Harrison, Vocal Character is a 2-band EQ with “body” and “clarity” bands that follow the pitch of the vocal. Of course, they’ve also included the 32c Channel EQ with four bands and high and low cut filters. Harrison says that this EQ is directly based on its famed 32c consoles.
The dynamics section also offers two separate processors. There’s a De-Esser, which is based on the X-Tool DSP of Harrison MPC digital consoles. Next ist the Leveler, a compressor derived from the channel strip of the Harrison Mixbus DAW software.
With Chorus, Delay and Reverb, AVA Vocal Flow also includes three of the most common vocal effects. Everything comes together in the master section, which allows for flexible routing of the seven modules and offers input and output trim controls.
With these features, Harrison AVA Vocal Flow looks like a comprehensive vocal mixing package. As far as I’m concerned, the only thing missing is some sort of preamp/saturation module, which would open up even more sonic possibilities.

Harrison Consoles AVA Vocal Flow is distributed through Plugivery Distribution. There’s an introductory offer until September 6, 2020 for USD 89. After that, the MAP (minimum advertised price) will be USD 139.
