Vocal Production

In this course, we're going to cover the basics of how to get professional sounding vocals.

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.

Pimp My Track

Vespers hand-picked a small, tight-knit group of his closest students and gave them an opportunity he’d never offered before.  In order to qualify, they needed to have completed a number of courses on Vespers.ca or WarpAcademy.com, bringing them up to a high level of knowledge.  Each of them submitted one of their projects for Vespers to do a full-on re-working.  Vespers had a full license to thrill, and ripped each project apart with a “no-holds-barred” approach, completely re-engineering them.  Whatever needed to be done, in his opinion, to bring the track up to a professional level.
