    not too sure with cubase really mate as i use logic.
    id say record whatever your going to record copy it and paste it into a seperate channel so you have 2 channels of the same vocal layered together.
    Tone one down slightly.

    i do this sometimes if the voice recording is quite weak or if the guy has a really weak voice when im working with mcs

    not sure about the plugins on cubase specifically, but if you've recorded something cleanly then it's definately going to need some reverb to beef it up.

    Hey , starts with teh mic, if you ain't using something good then ya can't polish a turd. Go for a nice preamp...valve compression , maybe a send effect of chorus on 2% effect 98% dry...and Reverb, - always makes a vocal shine if deon right ...check the production section mate...best place to ask
