Working with vocals can be an art itself. It involves many areas of the production process, such as recording, editing, and processing the audio. In this series of workshops you will learn how to use recording equipment to its full potential, how to use Take Lanes and create the best comp, as well as how to layer vocals and edit them properly. We will also be looking at how to apply corrective (such as Equalizers and Compressors) and creative (such as Reverb and Delay) processing to the recorded vocals. We will be diving into routing options in Live11 and explore parallel processing too. By the end of the series you will walk away with a comprehensive Vocal Effect Rack that you can always use as a starting point whenever you are working with vocals.

Session 1:

Working with vocals can be an art itself. It involves many areas of the production process. In the first session you will learn how to set up your external equipment and Live 11 for a recording session. We will be looking at microphone techniques as well as how to use Take Lanes, comp and edit audio in Live. You will also learn how to layer vocals, apply pitch shifting and how Warping Algorithms work.

Session 2:

Working with vocals can be an art itself. It involves many areas of the production process. In the second session of this series, you will learn how to apply corrective processing to vocals, such as equalisers and compressors. We will  be looking at other effects such as the Saturator and Chorus-Ensemble. You will also learn how to work with backing vocals and apply group processing.

Session 3:

Working with vocals can be an art itself. It involves many areas of the production process. In the third session of this series you will learn how to apply time based effects, such as Reverb and Delay and use parallel processing. We will be looking at how to build a custom Audio Effect Rack specifically for vocal processing as well as routing options in Live 11.
