MP4 | 11 Tutorials | 488.96 MB
A good vocal has the power to transform a decent track into an unforgettable global hit, and this course will provide all the knowledge you need to write, record and process your very own vocals.
Delivering the tutorials is Ian Bland, a hugely respected producer who has remixed the likes of Prince, Bizarre Inc and Queen, re-working and mixing some of the most famous voices in pop. He also worked with an array of talented vocalists in the flesh, including Diane Charlemagne (famously the vocalist for both Goldie and Moby) and Debbie Sharp, with whom he had two UK top 40 hits as part of legendary 90s rave outfit Dream Frequency.
The course is a comprehensive guide to the entire process of adding vocals to a track, beginning with writing tips and suggestions for selecting and finding a vocalist, before moving onto invaluable guidance on equipment and how to ensure the recording session goes without a hitch. He then gives an in-depth guide to his professional techniques for processing vocals, covering everything from EQing and reverb, to creative slicing of improvised material, using a range of DAWs’ internal effects and 3rd party plugins.
