EV compensation won't soften the light.
My preferred methods are (use these a lot)
Tissue over the flash fitted with a diffuser panel.
Lumiquest 80-20 bouncer. Big but softens light a bit better than an Omnibounce in most cases.
16-20" Brolly. Haven't seen these avaiable for a while but were freely available in the 70s. they attach via a seiglite bracket and it gives you a portable camera mounted brolly. Works very well with TTL systems. The main disadvantage is the size of the setup and expense.
3 foot square White cardboard or similar panels. Works a treat for bouncing flash off outdoors.
Fullsize brollies and reflectors
My prefered method for location shooting of people.
