Warp Academy Vocal Production TUTORIAL
Learn vocal production workflow, what plugins to use, how to tune vocals, how to time align vocals. Everything you need to create the PERFECT, professional sound you’ve been looking for.
How to engineer vocals has been our single most requested topic from the community here at Warp Academy. And rightly so. Mixing vocals is one of the most complex and challenging things you’ll have to face as a producer.
Vocals are unlike any other instrument or sound. They’re dynamic, unique, full of organic nuances, and saturated with emotion. When they’re done right they can be the feature element that makes a hit song that tops charts. A vocal is what makes a piece of music a “song”, and not a “track”. But there’s a reason most electronic music doesn’t feature vocals. They’re time consuming and difficult to do well.
In this course, we’re going to cover the basics of how to get professional sounding vocals. These techniques work even if you’ve recorded the vocals in your home studio in a bad room, and with inexpensive, low-quality equipment (most of the vocals in my tracks were recorded this way). We’ll use stock Ableton Live effects, as well as my recommended free and paid third-party plugins. Workflow is also critical, so we’ll go into detail about what effects go in what order in your processing chain.
