By Cornelius Gould on Mar 14, 2019 12:40:13 PM

First off, always remember that whatever the microphone processor does, the on-air processing will take the result, and magnify it. So, a little bit of adjustment on the microphone processor goes a long way on-air. Both Frank Foti and I have had great success with making DJs sound bigger than life with just the simplest and slightest changes to the microphone end of things.
