Vocals made easy
In this online course, I squeeze over 20 years of knowledge and experience into a series of over 40 clearly-explained video tutorials. Every detail of professional vocal production from mindset to mic choice, reverb to rendering will be covered in the course along with full access to all my secret vocal production and arrangement tricks and techniques.
Designed for all levels and genres, this course is for everyone. You’ll pick up my methods with ease whether you’re an experienced producer or if you’re at the beginning of your journey. I’ll make it easy for you to create stunning vocals in every track you make from now on.
Don't sell yourself short
There are so many elements to a great vocal recording. Get any one of them wrong and you can easily ruin a vocal.
If you’re an artist or a singer, make sure you do your talent justice. Give your gift the pedestal it deserves to impress family, friends, co-writers, labels and other music industry ears.
Empower the artist within
Take power into your own hands.
Never again will you have to rely on somebody else to produce your vocals. I’ll give you the skills and tools so that you can produce your own stunning vocals. Empower yourself and nothing will hold back the artist within you.
Set for success
In module one I’ll give you all the tools to prepare yourself for success. You’ll be guided on how to get the acoustics right before recording and how to make anywhere a great space to capture vocals.
I’ll explain to you about mic choice, mic position, audio interfaces, how to prepare your mindset, your surroundings and much, much more.
Capture the magic
Module two contains everything you need to know about Digital Audio Workstations and computers. I’ll give you workflow and organizational skills to help you make breathtaking vocals. You’ll be shown how to work with instrumentals, how to use auto-loads, how to set the correct recording level and most importantly, how to track vocals.
I stand corrected
Vocal tuning is a struggle for many and this module alone is worth your investment in the course.
In module three you’ll thoroughly explore corrective processing, including how to make the daunting task of vocal comping easy. I’ll teach you how to compile your best ever vocal performance with confidence. You’ll be shown how to tune vocals with absolute transparency.
In module four you move on to the rewarding process of tonal processing. I’ll hold your hand through the process of how to make your own record ready vocal chain. This includes how to equalize vocals, how to use compression, multi-layer compression, how to de-ess your vocals and how to add that expensive and illusive studio polish to your finished vocal.
Unicorns are real
Unicorn - noun - something that is highly desirable but difficult to find or obtain
Module five is where you’ll learn all about vocal effects and how to use them. Reverb is explained in meticulous detail, along with how to master the use of delay, create tight vocal effects, produce stunning ambient vocals and construct catchy vocal chops. Now that you’ve found the unicorns you will be able to make epic vocal throws and transitions.
Module six is where I’ll cover vocal alignment and arrangement. We’ll also deal with how to inject emotion and intimacy into your vocal recording, spotlighting phrases and how to add contrast between sections. I’ll demonstrate all my layering tricks and show you how to create huge sounding vocal stacks along with how to produce tasteful usable ad libs.
In module seven you will discover the hidden rewards of automation, vocal groups and vocal bus processing. I show you how to fit vocals in the mix and how to export your vocal stems flawlessly.
