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 live-stream, 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.

About Your Instructor:

Hi!  I’m Vespers.  My passion is helping make the complex topic of electronic music production accessible and engaging to all those who want to express their creativity through sound. My journey started with a Youtube channel where I shared free tips and tricks as video tutorials. The channel blew up and has continued to build momentum.

Building upon this early success on Youtube, I became an Ableton Certified Trainer and started making full fledged courses and production tools. That was great and all, but I wanted to amp things up so the next step was to build a collective of other all-star teachers and take things to the next level.

Assembling a team of other Ableton Certified Trainers and industry experts, I co-founded Warp Academy, one of only a few Ableton Certified Training Centers worldwide. With the help of our students and trainers, Warp Academy has risen to become one of the world’s most cutting-edge schools for electronic music production, offering online courses on topics like sound design, songwriting, remixing, performing, mixing and mastering, and beyond. I’m very proud of what we’ve created here and what our students have accomplished.

As an educator, I’ve collaborated to offer music production workshops music festivals and conferences. I’ve also had the pleasure of forging epic partnerships with industry heavyweights such as Universal Audio, Apogee, iZotope, FabFilter, XFer Serum, Sonarworks, Tannoy, and Dynaudio to review and make tutorials on their products as well as bring educational discounts to Warp students.

As a producer, I’ve released music on Adapted Records, Westwood Recordings, and Pop & Lock Records. Aside from running Warp Academy, I also work as a professional sound designer, producer for hire, ghost writer, mixing and mastering engineer.
