Thx as well for the response & advice!!!
Both Elf's & your statements makes A LOT of sense!!!
I must say that in addition to my reply to Elf, regarding that "more recently for whatever reason, I've been working with artists that vocally have some SERIOUS S & F problems & although I manage to somewhat CURE it during the EDITING & MIXING sessions, I'd MUCH prefer to tame it at the source during the recording process", my current computer seems to be slacking due to the HIGHER plugins & vst's that I've been using of late.
