About This Class

Ever wonder how artists make their music sound so good? It’s all in the mix. Even when big musicians are touring on the road and recording in hotel rooms they sound incredible because their engineers are so good. 

I can’t promise that after this class you’ll sound like Drake. BUT I can teach you the basics so you’re one step closer to getting there.

With over 10 years of experience mixing, recording, and writing records I’ve put together my own system and this quick and dirty guide to mixing R&B and hip-hop vocals in Ableton. 

So, what’s next?

There are so many lessons I picked up over the years and through my time behind the scenes in the music industry that have helped me immensely and I’ll share them with you throughout these courses. 

One of the biggest gems I’ve learned is this: Do it yourself.

No one is going to care about your music as much as you do. If you have the DRIVE to succeed and the HUNGER to develop your craft you’ll be able to make it. This is the era of no gatekeepers. No excuses. So what are you waiting for?

Mixing is a skill that is incredibly marketable and distinguishes between an amateur and a professional level sound. 

I’m not saying you’ll become a rockstar overnight. But with what I teach you in this course and the persistence to apply it you’ll be that much closer.

 

Who is this course for?

This class is designed for artists, producers, and engineers who are starting out and want to get professional sounding records from their bedroom.

As an artist one of the best skills I ever learned was how to mix. You have COMPLETE control over how your music sounds out and it’s an incredible service if you’re looking for a full-time or part-time hustle. 

 

By The End Of This Course

I want to be clear. This isn’t about shortcuts. This isn’t about secrets. This is about learning the fundamentals, applying them to your own work, and taking your career into your own hands. These are tried and true methods I have learned through countless tutorials and recording sessions over the years that I wish someone had taught me at the beginning. 

I also want to make the statement that there is no right way or wrong way to this. This is simply my way. If you want to hone your sound take your future into your own hands and craft what sounds good to YOU.

What If I Only Have Stock Plug-ins?

Great question, you. If you only have Stock plug-ins you can take my other courses here:

1. Course Intro: Welcome back to another course with your boy key Orion. I'm the man who is obsessed with making dope music and teaching you how to make your own. In this course, I'm going to teach you how to mix your own vocals from your bedroom or from your kitchen. I'm an artist and educator, but making beats, I've been writing, recording, making my own music over ten plus years. If you want the proof in the pudding, you can check me out on Spotify, I'm at key Orion. All that music there is recorded, written, mix, mastered, and produced by yours truly. So I'm going to teach you all the tricks of the trade. I used to work as an intern, Island Def Jam, the record label. And I saw how the record label and the record industry worked. It wasn't for me, but I did realize how there is space for indie artists. So my entire thesis, my entire movement, is about teaching independent artists like yourself, how you don't need a record label and how you can build, grow, mix, master your own records from start to finish. So I have a ton of other courses on music production. So if need to make your own B2 can check those out. I've also got mixing vocals for different Dawes when in Logic Pro X, I've got one for Ableton Live. This one is going to be not DOS specific, so this is one that you can use in any row you're in. But this isn't going to be with stock Plugins. This is going to be with the real professional plug-ins that I use, as I'll show you, my same techniques that I use, it's actually going to be the real plug-ins, some waves, a little bit of fab filter, things like that. If you want the stock plugins that Ableton mixing course, I'll link that up in the course description. So if you only have this type plug-ins, don't sweat it. But in this one, this is going to be a little bit more serious, is gonna be a quick and dirty guide. So if you're a beginner, you kinda just want the facts. I'm not gonna dive super deep into each of the elements in this course. This is going to be a walkthrough just because I want to get you from start to finish. I don't want to take all your time walking you through all the little pieces, the knobs and switches. So in this course, you're going to learn how to make R&B and hip hop vocals like very modern, like Tory lanes, Drake kinda Chris Brown, type of modern R&B vocals as the type of track that I'm making in this course. And I want to mention that there are two different types of this course. So if you are in the paid version there a couple times and I'll shout out the template. If you're in the paid version that will be available. If you are not in the paid version, that will not be available. But feel free to make your own. You can pause the video and different places and you can just build your own template from there. It's not rocket science. You'll see kinda what I'm doing, but I just want to throw that out there. So if you're like, where's the template? If it's not there, it's not that I didn't forget. It's just that you're in a different version of the course. So that said, if you do want the templates and you want all the goods, you can check that out at KIA Orion.com. And I have all the resources. They're awesome, cool paid templates as well. If you really want to level up quickly without further ado, I'm going to stop talking. Get your beverage of choice, set aside a couple of minutes and I'm going to teach you how to mix. I'll see you on the inside piece. 2. Setting Up Your Mix: A. Alright, so we're jumping into this project and I'm stoked to break down for you guys how I go about mixing my vocals, making my tracks. You've heard me say it time and time again for me mixing, it's kinda like concentric circles. You kinda start somewhere. It's not a linear process. You start somewhere and you continue to kinda work and rework and figure things out. So the way that I've been recording recently is kind of a strange way. Again, this is you learn the rules and you can break them. I'm not saying this is a way to do it. There's just no way that I do. And I've found that it works for me is I'll have our chord, each part of the song, maybe like five or six times. So I'll record each section kinda individually. Whereas I used to go through the whole song, but then I would find I would run out of breath. So this is just kinda what I've been doing recently. Universe. Each one of these is its own kind of individual take. So I'll do this hook the first 6-7 times whatever, our second whatever. And then I'll go back and I'll kind of like structure it out with the beat over here. But that was just kind of a note on the song structure, kind of why you are going to be seeing this, the method to the madness. I also want to preface this with, this is not my kind of bread and butter mixing course. I'm not going to go and super indepth on everything in this one. This is if you already kind of have a base and knowledge of what you're working with. I'm not going to use only stock plugins. I have a mixing tutorial on only, of course, using only able to install plugins if you want that when there'll be in the project description as well as I wanted to make the note that this is this is one where I'm not going to be diving and super deep and things. So if you want my kind of bread and butter or I'd go super indepth on, on compression on what it means on everything, all the creative decisions. You can find that in the description below. That's one where I just go a flush out all the ideas. This is one that we're gonna be kinda mixing with you and showing you through kind of my process so you can see kind of what I do and then also talking you through creative decisions that I make. So I've got all these takes here, and so pretty much already have an idea of how I want the beat to be structured. And so I have this kind of like a beat structured over here. I made the beat this morning and then I wrote the song and recorded it. And now we're going to mix it. And pretty much the way that I like to do this as well as I wanna let you know on the master channel, I have my, I have a limiter on. So this is going to be a little bit louder. I'll come back or about mastering later, but I'd like to mix with the limiter on just cuz it kinda gives me an idea of maybe how loud things are going to be when I actually start mixing them, I'll stop talking soon. The last thing you wanna do is choose a reference track. And so for my reference track, for this one, it's the song Mia by bad bunny and Drake. Because I kind of got some dance hall kind of IBS going home at this track. So I'm going to take a few creative liberties, but other than that, let's jump into the mix. So just as a heads up, when it comes to mixing, I like my beats to come in around, around like negative, negative four, negative five. I like my beats to command. So then it gives me enough room for vocals and then enough room for mastering. So coming around maybe negative 4.5, maybe five. I a. So again, I haven't chose, I haven't chosen which takes them in to use it for all of these different ones. I'll skip that part of this, but they're all pretty much the same air accorded them all in the same place. So for the most part they, they'll kinda the same Bob, same volume. So I like to just choose one and mix it. And then, and then I, I count my vocals and take which one I want because I like to see how it feels mixed before I take it, if that makes any sense. Alright, so let's do this. As you can see, I've broken it up so that I have on my, my main vocals here, which I'm going to mix all the pretty much same. And then I have my doubles that I have is kind of a different group down the line. So let's jump into it. 3. EQ The Vocals: All right. Yeah, let's get it, get it, get it, get it to. The first thing we're gonna do is I'm a vocal track, gonna throw in my my vocal chain, which you can hopefully have something in the description, project description or course description about where you can download. These, have a bunch of these downloads for free and I'll have some paid templates and stuff like that. So hopefully those are, I've linked those up by now. Come on. Alright. So let's, let's boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Okay. So first thing I'm gonna do is come in, thrown a little. We gotta figure out what key we're in. So this is going to be, so this is a major, but I've pitched the samples. So let's see if we can figure this out. Okay. And we should be back live a so we're unpause now, I had to go figure out what that key was. And for guys like me who don't know much about music theory, there's this free app called key Finder. I dragged the beat in and I drag some vocals in. I got around a D minor, a minor. And so for me, there's key finder for everything else. There's MasterCard. Just kidding. Okay. So this is what the vocal sound like with the beat. This is the hook, but Auto-Tune. First, I'm gonna start with this a little bit of tuning. I'd like to have a little bit of Auto-Tune. And I'd like this waves vocal writer that I put on before I start compressing and doing other things. So I have this on. This is a really cool plug-in. Super, not needed, like super unnecessary. I'd say auto tune, that's that's a necessary plugin. This is when there's very unnecessary. I also use it just like very subtly, but it's cool. Just kinda levels out your audio so you don't have to do this later. But I'm not internet I meant to offer now so we can get our compression everything down first. So this is what the vocals, as you've heard me few CIA my mixing stores before you realize like say don't mix in a vacuum. Meaning you'd like to mix it with the beat. The one part that I do like to mix in a vacuum is the EQ, because it's hard to hear sometimes with the beat. So we're gonna jump into this. There's a little bit of that liked to add analog distortion. No. What are you looking, Furda woman, I used to know change. Thankfully. Don't needed no, ma non No. What do you use the b I gave the woman I used to know I for me between spike in vivo, this isn't, this isn't a sizes is just kinda choosing what you'd like for your ear. I'd say spike probably feels best to me. And then I'm going to start at the DLSR. Super-simple ds are right now. Just kinda tame some of that. Those high Ss. No, what do you use the b, I keep looking Furda woman knives. But what I really am going to need to do here is clean up the low end. I can take any errors. It's a pretty boxy low. And so the first thing I'm gonna do is jump into. This, this is any EQ that you can use, arsenic, the pro Q2. So I'm gonna roll off a bunch of this low end, maybe like 1000. What do you use the b I gave looking Furda woman I used to know change thankfully. And so I've been doing who see my other tutorials as well as I've been I'd like to find a more, I've been really working on training my ear because mixing is about your training. So I don't like to do a ton of that. My EQ and this kind of visually cue and I'd like to do a lot more in this, kind of see what I mean. I like to do more in this like a channel strip type of EQ because I just trimmed my ear and from T-rex. But you can use any sort of channel strip. You can honestly use your visual one too, but this is just don't want that I like to use. So I pretty much I'm scanning for frequencies right now, or I'm going to turn up the queue, meaning how the width of the, the audio I'm searching for. Much as like this. This would be an example of turning up the queue like this. So I'm getting really specific pretty much does what I'm doing. I'm turning up the Q and a. I'm just sweeping these frequencies. But rather than doing it with a, a visual and looking at what's going on. I'm trying to train my ear to do it. So that's why I like to do it in here. Or use the bees. I felt pretty boxy domain. So I'm going to, I'm going to start chopping. I like to chop, to chop. So I chop out a lot of the low, the low mids. What do you use the b, I keep looking Furda woman naives didn't change a thing fully. So come and don't needed, like those are not needed. Those like resonant frequencies like we do not need those joints. No. But he used to be I gave look Nevada woman I used and change up. Thankfully, I saw come and down needed now mon non now what it used to be I gave looking for a woman I used to know, change up thankfully. So come on down, Nader. No, ma non No. What I used to be, I keep looking for it. I will make it there. And then I'm just gonna just trap a little bit from the bottom here. We love it from the tap there. Nothing too crazy though. And then we're going to jump over to another AQ. Let's see what's going on here. Where the snow away, but just a hard head again, so mad for an unlucky snow, you need to relax, I guess. So here are a bunch of resonant frequencies in there too. So here we're going to open up another EQ, snow. But just the law, Hagen, so mad for an unlucky snow, I need to relax. I was thinking, whoa, time you'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up on me again, even call me anything happened to use an army, always a story. I can't afford it anymore. I'll be gone in the morning cause but it's nowhere. But just della hard head again, so mad for an unlucky snow, I need to measure those resonant frequencies bothers much. They do mate, but I can definitely, I'm in there where the snow away but just head again, so mad for an unlucky snow, I need to relax. I was thinking, whoa, time you'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up on me. Can't even call me anything happen to you. It is always a story I can't afford anymore. I'll be gone in the morning. Again when it comes to EQ, for me, at least in the way that I'm learning my engineering. It's much less about adding frequencies and subtract a frequency. It's, it's, it's a perception game. If there, if you're taking out the Anita frequencies, your brain perceives the frequencies that you want much easier there. It's not even making them aloud or you didn't have to boost anything they're just perceived. Do hear them as louder because you've taken out the stuff you don't like. For me, mixing is really, it's 99% EQ. And, and figuring out what you don't want and subtracting that rather than adding things, at least in my experience. But just the law had again, some mad, further unlucky snow. I need to relax. I was thinking, oh time you'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up. I can tell these are going to be a problem to especially once we start compressing the snow away. But just allied head again, so mad for an unlucky snow, I need to relax. I was thinking hold time. You'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up on me. I hear it in there, right. I think, you know, I need to relax. I was thinking the whole time you'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up on me and even call me. Anything happened to use an army flags. I was thinking the whole time you'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up on me again, even call me. Anything happened to use an army flags. I was thinking, whoa, time you'd have mapped back. I would just switch up on me, gave me switch up on me again, even call me switch up on me. Can't even call me switch balmy can even Comi sweatshop balmy can't even call me, switch up on me again, even call me switch up on me again. Even call me switch up on me again, even call me, sound like Rodinia, their search upon a chip on me again, even com, i think they're gonna be good there. Let's come back to the hook so that we've got going on here. I might choose another vocal teachers to see who used to be. I keep looking fertile woman I used to know, change thankfully. So come and don't need to know what it used to be. I keep the comfort album and I used to know change. Thankfully, come and don't need to know mon non snow. But just Stella Hardhead in so mad for an unlucky snow away, need to relax hours then get those Ss I might I might take us a little bit on those. And, and again, with the Q, this isn't a huge I'm not cutting out like this much. I might go on real surgical wet it know. They used to be I keep looking further, woman, I used and change. Thank this might be a little bit this might be a little bit of overkill, but it's the same in here. If you're just like adding a bunch of these bands. I just like to do it and like I said, in that regard. And so that's kind of our first step is to EQ this really kinda start taking out the frequencies you don't want. And it makes it so much easier than to find the frequencies that you do want. And once you start boosting these things, keep, Like I said, keep coming back with the circle analogy. Keep going back, maybe queuing small things here and there as you go, they're gonna start to pop out to you as you continue to mix. 4. Compression: But the next thing we're gonna do is we're gonna start compressing these vocals a little bit first. So I'm going to start with is the CLIA 76. You see my stuff, you know, I loved this. And again, I've learned this technique of multiple compressors from this guy named Dave on to Raul, helped me Divine is as YouTube channel. It's amazing. Check it out. Because it's really cool pretty much in with what I learned from his stuff was if you use multiple compressors, they don't have to do one doesn't have to handle the full load. So the technique I've been implementing, I've been kind of iterating it, finding my own style, but hopefully you guys do this to you, take my ideas and then make them your own. So again, if compression, i'm going to jump into it too much right now because I have another, my other main bread and butter mixing course on that. But pretty much I want these to be kinda knocking around maybe negative seven, negative five. We're gonna find somewhere in there. Again, really fast attack, really fast release. No, they used to be. I keep looking photo woman, I used in change, thankfully. So commando needed initiatives where we're not going to be wanting to do this and so anymore. But the key with a foot and a little bit values didn't change a thing truly. Non-mendelian needed no mon non jobs. The IQ. But oh well they die. And thankfully, so commando needed num one on snow, which is still hidden so mad, that unlucky snow, you need to recognize how is thinking notes on them. You'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up on dk and even call me anything you happen to use an army to always a story in a poem and you gone in the modern and the key with the photo will live values. And again, we're gonna come back to a reference track. What are we shooting for? And I'd like to kind of keep that in mind. We came afoot element values. Now pretty much with this compressor again, like I said, I got a little bit of volume out of this one. But now with this one, I'm going to probably do a lot more vocal matching, like gain matching, meaning I don't, I'm not trying to get a lot of volume out of this and just kinda get in some compression. Not quite this negative six, but somewhere maybe around on their own. He was afoot. Again, it's also personal tastes. I like a lot of compression of my vocals because I'm kind of in that modern rap world. So that's just what I'm going to put. The key with the photo will live values. There's no changes. Then clearly, non-Mendelian needed no money. What used to be? I gave them the Buddha Linda, I don't need to know who to snow, which just means zone that when a leaky Snow White and you do read that x, how is thinking ON sound? Not bag. Yeah, we just switched on or turn the volume up a little bit, just taking it a little bit of volume metadata. So put a So this is way too much. This one, this one's just kinda for me for character just because I like the way that this makes vocal sound. It's kinda like this warm, kinda vintage compressor. So CLIA says to see eye-to-eye, but it is something to a, and remember that the first few letters, but the CLI today's a great addition to the T-Rex white 2A. It just depends on what you want. As you can tell, I'm not gonna get a ton of come, I'm not compressing it a ton on this one. I just like it a little bit just he gave with afoot element values does not change if thankfully. So what I mean by gain matching to if you haven't seen the editorial pretty much with trying to get it to sound the same. And I take that back of training at the level the same with the compressor on and off, but I wanted to sound slightly different. That's what the compressor is doing. But it can trick your ears by making it louder so you think it's better, which is why there's this gain reduction. Now through this gain reduction up to put a used to be a foot element values didn't change a thing truly. Know men don't meet it, no mind or no. What he used to be. I gave the guy used to Jeff, thanks. Ui. So come and don't need to numb on non Buddhist snow, which had been so mad. So now that this is a little bit louder, certainly hear more things near there. I want to EQ, so also I wanted to ds more to. So this is, I'm gonna take this wage, the USSR bring this up here, just aren't compressor because we're going to need it. And yes, a couple of things. But I used the game with the foot out. Woman values didn't change a thing. Fui come and don't meet in no, non, non know what a use the IDE gave the Dakota woman, I used this change update UI. So dumb and don't need to know Manon, medicinal. But just so mad when they're leaky to know how you do realize how is here and a lot of kinda low and in there that I don't like. And my vocal associated with Buddhist anomalies, which is still Hagen so mad when unlucky snow, how you need to realize how is thinking old Salim, you'd have enough bad day. I would just switch up on the gain and even call me always a story. I can't go to snow and it would just mean some mad to an unlucky snow. You need to recognize how is thinking. Oh, it's Alameda MF back. Yeah, but just bond ek and even call me anything I've been to use an AMI to always a story I can't afford anymore. I'll be gone in the morning. But I use this B gave me a foot I will mend I use does not change a thing. Who has Non-Mendelian needed? No, ma non John. What do you use? The UI window needed no ma non religious knowledge, which is still in some mad to an unlucky to know how you need to reignite. So again, just a little bit EQ that'll be addressing as we go. And I'm gonna put on to here is a A multiband compressor, the waves one is the C4, which is great. I just like this one by Fab filter because I'd like that filter stuff. And this is one that again, I'm not going, I'm still learning about this is a really powerful tool. I don't use it a ton. Like I bring these kind of these ranges in because I'm gonna be honest it like this thing can really make your vocals go crazy if you want. So I just like a little bit, like it says in your presence and control. But pretty much the reason it's so powerful is because it's a compressor but just different bands. It rather than just the whole thing squash and the whole thing. It's kinda different bands. You can get really surgical with it, but It's kinda like great power comes, great responsibility. I'm still I've overdone it sometimes with this. So I tried to just like put it on and just a little bit of gentle multi-band compression. It gets some, some just brings out the vocals. I feel a little bit more, shall you? I mean, I used to come and don't need to know what I gave. You. Come and don't need a num, which is the law, hey, insulin mad. But I'd like you to know how you need to relax. How is thinking all the time you got back? Yeah. Bob, IQ and even call me. I still I still I'm still hearing some some issues in here, so I'm going to come back to my EQ and see if I can find them. There's some, there's some resonance frequencies. I can't, I'm not Jedi enough that I know exactly what I'm gonna come back in and scan form. So there's one for show. I mean, it has a lot of bag. Yeah, but just switch up on me, Gantt even call me anything happened to use an army. Always a story I can't afford anymore. I'll be gone in the morning canal. But I used to be always a story I gave to your friends and Manhattan. Dragging down the pain with the fashion couple of Gs into bank need nationally night couldn't break in the backseat. Imagine literally, but I'm Diane. Plane may just tell me how it never make it. You mustn't mistake faster than much you think got me to Asia, had to struggle by them, build an unfailing, grateful for it. God gave them the food. I used to come and don't need to know what a youth I gave. You expect to drink. The soda will then die. You know, thanks for the gum and don't need to know what a B I gave them. The hotel will come and don't need a numb one. Which is the law. I was thinking back. Alright, so that's kinda where we're kind of at a ballpark, in a ballpark range for the quick EQ. The next thing I'm going to jump into is, how about those? I am going to add this ds or at the end. Because I'd like to have a little bit of guessing, kind of at the end of the chain after this compression may be a little bit more ds and it's a cool little bar after compression ds. And so this is going to be the last sort of permanent gonna worry about it too much. It's not gonna be that, that crazy. So as you can tell what these DSRs, These are also at different places. So this one ends at around 3K because I know that's kind of around. That's not a sound that I love. This turns around seven, that's another one that can be piercing. 5k is another one that can be kinda piercing. It does. I'm kinda boosting things as well in here. That's what those are therefore as well. So now moving on to the next part, which is the fun part, starting to add effects to the vocals. 5. EFX: Alright, so now we're going to jump into some effects. So this is kinda how the vocals are sound. And right now, just in a random Take a sick this front without any effects. No. They used to be. I keep looking fertile woman I used and with them change thankfully, coming down needed no mon non No. What do you use the b also, I turned on my vocal rather at this point, I like to mix and then come back to it vocal, right? If you watch it, I have it on. I leave it super actually pretty similar to default settings most of the time. It just kind of rides to life a better term, rides the vocals and just kind of helps level amount of sweat it does. They used to be I know I saw come on, knows what they used to be. Good enough for now. I use this. Come and don't meet and no one noticed all x, which is still a hashtag in some senses, a new degree in annex, how is thinking and what we're shooting for. And so we're going to bring in this affects chain that again, I'm putting on this kind of overall, can't see Semi. So my hand kinda this overall vocal thing treating this like a bus in a bit. And my other tutorials, I've talked about bussing these effects to send using scent channels. But right now just on that type of Tama and the wave that I'm on, just kind of group them a little differently. So this kinda what I'm doing. So now we're going to start putting these together. First thing is a plate verb. Drake uses this in a lot of stuff. You see me talk about this. It's like a room verb. A lot of these effects, the way that I like to do it is I'll, I'll push it like so it's super exaggerated and then just dial it back until you feel it. So again, it's less about hearing and more about just if it's kind of you can feel it. So see what I mean. So this is the plate verb. Woman I used to know, change, come in known needed no mind. You need to know mon non notice and all x, which is still a high insulin. To make an online you do realize how is thinking, oh, enzyme, you'd have mop back as a flanger. I love Flanders. Here's how I'm using it to wage flange or you could use the stack plug-in window if you want, but feel free to pause it, check those settings if you want them. You heard what did I just like? Again, it kinda just widens the vocals and literally the cave, the different element. And I use social media thanks to the commando needed num one. Iq for H or H delay with some force. And maybe it will add a little bit of eighth. We'll see what's going on with these. They use the cave, the different element and I use this change of thanks to some human don't beta num one way use this. Like you. I use a commando media. No ma non Buddhist knowledge, which is still a high PE in some kinetic and why you do realize how is again o time you have not bag, you have, which is virtual BOD in reference track, how much delay are they using? Again, not a, not a ton. They used to be. I gave the change of thanks for comin known median num one. Put a use that I gave them a foot album and I use this k. Things. Come and go meet a no monarch. Notice, which is still, in some sense, we do relax. How is again o time you'd have mapped back? Yeah, but just switch on. Can't even call me anything happened to use an army. This is us long verb. What happened here is evolve, evolve Hall of vintage Berg, sit to large hall. You've gotta ds or so. Here's another thing I talked about a lot effecting your effects. So these are effects that are only affecting this reverb, like this ds or this overdrive, this EQ, these aren't on my hole, isn't an actual thing. This is only on this vintage Valhalla reverb sound. And the reason that I like to set this up is because effecting your effects can be just kinda cool. So it just gives it character. So I've got a bunch of different things going on here. I've got some EQ going on in this reverb and a couple different places. I've got a one knob, I think there's a brighter. So I've got a bunch of different kinds of things going on here. What I'm looking for in this verb is to just, I like a lot. Depends on what Alec, I love some Tory lanes vocals which I'm going to do something how to make sectorial lanes in a bit. If because I haven't done it yet, but I love how much reverb he has an is it's almost like they're super washed and in really back in the mix. But this is kinda, I'm going to dial into taste a little bit to what I'm feeling an ear. So he's got some good reverb going on there, which is still a high pay in some way. And we do a, how does digital sound? And here you have a solution. Came and call me anything happen to use an army. Always a story I can afford anymore. I'll be gone along with this Overdrive is a distortion, so I'm distorting my reverb, which is still a high head in some tuna Nixon. And why we do realize how is the ghetto Salim, you'd have not bag it again, the whole, the whole cyclical thing. Now that these are starting to stand up more, some dialing these back a little bit. I'm going to slowly, which is still in some men. You do realize, how is the good old sudden you'd have mapped back, you have to switch. Can't even call me anything you happen to use. And Amit is always a story I can't afford anymore. I'll be gone and they use them three times a day to thank food aid and no one knows what it used to be. I can I use change, become innovated. No Manon. Notice Nolan, which is still a high pay in some uniqueness. And why you do realize how is the good old time you have mapped back which is switched on? Can't even call me anything happened to use an army. Always a story I can afford anymore. Really gone. They use the game. Thanks to amend. The US gave the photo. I used to think So. I have a New Year two, it's a brighter whatever. I'm just kind of listening back and forth, they need add a little bit of brightness to it. Maybe a little bit of analog saturation of brands of the high-end we're going to see the US gave US change. Thanks. Commander, faded. No one knows where they use the game with. A human made it known Manon. Notice, which is still in some men to Nikki and all I need to relax. How is the good old Sam you have not bag? Yeah, but just switch up bonds. Can't even call me anything happen to use an army can always install reach. I can afford anymore. I came to this pressure and this 76 comp. These are pretty much just a little bit of parallel compression. And I can talk about that tonight. We are talking about that a lot in other tutorials. But this that's what this there's just pump it. Pump it, pump it. You feel the pump a pump, a Pompey pump it a little bit. Just like pushes. It makes it a little thicker. It's just super compressed, but she just added a little bit icky. Right now I'm just listening to how it sits in the mix and trying to think about what does it, what does it, what does it need? Use them. Thanks to some needed. No one knows what they used to be. I gave them I use them. Change update on on. Notice snow acts, which is still in some uniqueness, non-aligned. You do realize how is the good old Sam you'd have mapped back. Yeah, but just switch up bond can even call me anything efforts to use an AMI for always a stall reach I can afford anymore. We use the cave with US. Jane, Thanks. I came to the fulfillment that I use to change. Thanks to know mon non Buddhist knowledge, which is still a high paying and so mad to Nixon on why we do it. Alright, so what I'm gonna do now is I want to pause this video and actually going to stop this one. And I'm gonna go in and listened to all my different vocal takes and choose the ones that I liked the most, and then bring them into the actual beat. And I'm going to show you what I do next to kinda edit these vocals to get them starting a little bit closer to what I'm looking for. So that's where jumping into next. 6. Mixing Doubles: And we're back in action. Ladies and gentlemen were rock and roll in. So we're going to be doing now is mixing these devils. So pretty much the way that I had this organized, I went through all my Takes and I comped the vocals, meaning I went through I listen to all these different takes and I chose the ones that I liked the most, which I put in here as now I have. So I have all these raw takes, right? So this is how I organize my vocals, my main joint. And I have the raw takes, which are all the takes that I record on. And then I have my final vocals. Nothing on this chain because it's all obviously under this vocals, kinda this main umbrella. My main vocals here haven't really, I'm gonna go in and we'll cut those later on. I'll show you kinda a cup breaths out and stuff. And then I have this doubles. But the reason and what I'm gonna show you right now is how to mix these devils. And so for each of the double takes, what I do for my double is, is so right and my MRI vocals, it's kinda my workflow is always record these five. A record pretty much like five or six takes for almost every single piece of the song. And then I'll go back in our 2s, which piece I'd like for the main part. And then I'll go back in and choose the other two parts that I like for my double tracks. And so the way to have organizes these green are the main vocals and then the doubles are in this light blue. But the reason why I also mixed the doublets differently is because when I'm mixing, but biblically, take these wattages. So when I'm mixing my main vocals, I do them all in mano. If you notice that they'll use these little m means it's Mono. So that way it's coming right down the center, the center, your speaker field. But what my doubles, if you notice over here, I like to pin them hard left and right. So in order to do that, you can't have the plugins be in mono, even though this one is because there's a similar kind of chain that I was using before. But what I did was I copied, sometimes I'll copy the EQ from main vocals, which I did here. Obviously I can tell because this, I'm using this ds are and this is here and it shouldn't be. So I'll tune my devil's. Obviously. It's this with the double sound like for the HUC right now. This isn't what it used to be, I guess. So I sung, I sung this higher. So if you listen to this one, this is the main, this is what it used to be. I gave looking for a woman I used to know, but I thought it'd be cool if these were higher. It's kind of something like do so not assessing these like an octave higher, higher just to add some texture. So now we're going to start mixing these doubles down. It's gonna mix these doubles down. So I doubled down AS bar, ok, so same at the Auto-Tune except probably with tune the doubles all the way. I'll go hard to the auto tune on the doubles. Again, ds auction, probably DSM, even everything that I do normally, I'll just do it even more exaggerated on the devil. So I'm probably gonna ESTs hard. This isn't what it used to be. I gave lookup that album and I use them, no change up. Thankfully, I saw a comment on need. And again, I've copied these EQs. And what I'm gonna do though, is I'm going to start bringing back, I'm going to start compressing these and stuff. And I'm going to bring it back in with the with the main vocal because that's obviously, like I said, you don't wanna compress in a vacuum. Saturday you gave me a foot element. Now you still change update. Some woman Dawn needed no mine nachos way use the three IPA with afoot out woman NIH uses a job. Come and don't need to know on known. This Inoue used to be I gave them a foot out woman. Now you spin. Some woman known needed non-one, non no way use the IQ of a foot out woman died. Stage of things. Calm and don't even know ma non personal way. Use the Q and a foot out. Women die. Analog saturation. What I like to do, what by like the Fed filter shadow for this is because again, you can, you can do these bands. So like I just want, I'm just, I'm just adding a little bit of analog saturation in this kind of top part of the band. So if we take these doubles, this in order to use the I used to know, change up. I saw come in with doubles. I like to get really exaggerate with the effects. So that's what you're gonna see as we continue to go. I'd like to exaggerate a lot with them. So that's my style to each their own. And I'm going to get another I'm gonna ds into, again down here. This is what it used to be. I came to Egypt. So a man known me didn't online on jobs. In the US, the 35 games with a foot l will deny your change of things. Come and don't even know on not just how to use the IQ, the afoot element values. And this is where it gets real fun. Because now we get to start affecting these devils, which is one of my favorite things to do. Get outta here. Okay, we're good. This is a way to use the, the, I gave them a foot out woman, I used this change update UI. So commando needed non-one non jobs. What do you use? Used the IQ. I used to know I saw come in because they are I want him to feel different than the main vocal. I'd like to just go, I'd like to go crazy with the effects on how to use the high cubic foot element that I use to Egypt then come and don't need to know is you get to have different, I have a group for the hook, group, for diverse group for the bridge. And these. But I'm adding this stuff, all of the vocals, all of the double, excuse me, all the double vocals. And then I'll come back in and maybe like tweak the volumes of the different parts. But for the most part, most of my decibels of sound pretty much the same. This is what I used to be. I gave that up and out. Woman values is to just thank movie. Momento needed no mine nachos, what it use to three pi cubed equal foot out within NIH uses this binom slaying a movie, sub comment on media and online, not just what I used to be. That gave me a foot element values and change of thank you. Become invalidated. Not one way to use the same thing. Commendable needed no. Assemble to use the cubic foot elements. See? Some Domingo needed non, non dominated, not dissimilar to use to be able to afford element sub-domain donated num one nano. I gave the name. Things. Don't need to know the sound to use the game with a foot out. I saw he did not anonymous way Ikebukuro put out will come and don't need to know that I use to give up an element in a Mendelian needed non-one, non US. I came to comfort. And thankfully, I realized I needed I needed just try and to hard, hard effects Auto-Tune. They're going to stick with the legato and the, and the Mains and go a little bit harder on the AUTO-TUNE on the vocalist because I can't sing very well. I can't sing well in general, but you know, your boys out your triune auditing goes a long way. So this is kinda where I'm feeling the Met was able to use to be a good change of some unknown needed no ma non US. I came up with elements come into play. So I gave them some non-Mendelian needed non-one, non no way use the IP. Then you dial up into tastes the same way they used to give them something that they didn't know one way to use them. I came a comment dominated null mode, which is still in some mad. You know, I need to raise x. How is the good old time? It's never just adventure game, even call me any day never to use an AMI is always a story I can forge anymore. And grateful for the time to slow the tag sick a2 to assemble a US, I gave them a foot out. Okay, so obviously these are like some cool shouting doubles, which I'll come on to edit in a bit. But now we've got it pretty much rough mix of the vocals kinda where I want them. And I'm gonna go in on this next video and edit them, edit two breaths out and, and go in with the devil is really just chop and pick the parts that doubles or I want, I'm I apologize for that. Sound into background. I'll pause. Maybe you wait a little bit, see if they stop sawing. But we're getting there, we're getting close. Final stages, kinda last stage clean up and then some dialing in, some, some mixing, last mixing before the mastering. 7. Final Clean Up: We're back. So now we're going to jump in and edit these. And again, Drake the spoon. We're kind of going off the rails of our reference track for now. Because Drake like almost never uses doubles in here. Drake just usually gets one doped clean take I don't know. I've been having fun making, takes a lot longer to do tracks. It doubles, but I find it a lot of fun. So that's what we're doing. So and I'm gonna go in and just start editing. Editing at the breast, everything. Make it sound, certainly just make it ten other more professional. This is, this is a very not sexy part of the process, but I found for me makes a big difference. And again, I'm not going to so sorry, starting I'm not gonna solo it for now because a lot of the small cliques, blips, snaps, like they're kind of hidden. Things that stick out fit soloed are actually hidden when you're playing it in the beat. You can hide a lot of mistakes behind the beat. Big gems. I gave them a hotel woman donated note on. This is what it used to be capable of doing things. So the Mendelian needed no ma, non, no square. You simply use the b I gave with the foot element I will change. I gave them parallel click in there. I gave with a foot outlook that I gave with a fertile woman. I gave with air that element. So we gave them a photo, which simply, I gave them a photo. And I say just thankful. Commend donated non-one non jobs where you buy cave which offer no. 5k with buffer that will then change of thankful. Comment on leaving no ma non snowing. I gave I gave that up with a woman that I used and I gave the IK. But before that I will end up at the screen. I came with a woman that I use the danger. Thanks. Comment on needed no mowed down to understand slate of thanks. Stage of thankful. Comment on needed no, ma non. Further snow and ice coming down needed no ma non. O. Which is still the same way. We gave them a foot element. Change up. Thank you. Needed Noma nano. What are the three? I came with a hotel woman die your change of thankful. Comment on needed no more, not just how to use the free. I gave them a foot element by K with a photo. There's no change. So I'm skipping change up. Some non-Mendelian needed nominal physical change. Coming down now more anonymous and change. Some Comandante didn't know Milan nano. You. Thank them and donated non-line or use the I gave the Gulf without woman Types. Comment on me. No, ma non knows when to use the IP. So comment on needed. No, ma non. Just now I told you this was exciting, didn't I? I told us that man is going to be exciting and they use the IP of the buffer that woman that I use that tries to be a rap stars and everything. It's cracked up to be filming because I know you feel me. I know you feel me. No danger. That comment on needed no module. This is what it used to be. I gave that up about change update. So a man known needed no ma non no use. I gave the coffee now. Or the snow, which is still headed zone that good. And you don't realize how is then get old salary averages, whichever Bomb K and even call me anything you happen to use in the army. Always a story I can afford anymore. We go on in a minute where this novel, which is still a riparian zone, manage good and let us know why you need to realize how is then get old sound. You have mapped between zone magnet, good, leaky, so I need to raise x. How is then get all the time you have damages, supply need to relax. How is the good old Sal, is, how is the good old Saddam you'd have not beg, which is richer, Bob? Kpis, how is the good old time you'd have not beg average, just jump on K and even call me any day you have until you get a map back there, but just Bomb K and even call me any day you happen to use. And the Army has always just storing. Some breaths are hard to take out and they feel awkward if they're not there. So I might keep it in it just make it really low and even call me anything you haven't x2 use in the end, even call me anything you happen to use a Ptolemy any day had been through use and the army is always a story arc and afford anymore of Albi, which is still Octavian zone. That link is no ID. Next, how is the good old sound when I'm up there but just can't even call me anything you have been through you that's another right. Which is still in some manner of snow, which is still o, and, which is still Hagan song Man. Which is still Hagan song that like, you know why you need to realize how is then get old Sam, you'd have not bag, which is where the snow which is still Hagen zone that leaky. So how do you do realize how is then get old? Sounds. Good. A degree tags though, how many degrees that is, how is the good old salary I'm up there but just need to realize how is then get own sound. Yeah, but just can't even call me anything happen to use a universe. I'm chopping out a lot on these. It's because since these are the first doubles, I don't want them to be quite as prominent, quite as pronounced as the bridge or as the hub. Which is still in some areas like how is that again old summing them up there but just gave me and call me any day has been to use an army. Always a story I can afford anymore. We're just venture on game, even call me anything happens to it, just switch. It can even call me anything ever to use an army is always a story arc in 4A anymore than the army is always a story. And the story I can afford anymore about Don and Amonton's law, which is still in some, need to realize how is then getting old sound, unimodel, averages, spellcheck, can't even call me any day had been to use and the army always a story I can afford. They move about to go on in this novel, which in some way the in-degrees lives. How is then get hold some unimodel, averages, searcher balmy, can't even call me any day at the zoo use and the army always can't even call me anything you happen to use. And the army, anybody call me anything you happen to use and the army even call me anything you happen to use. And the army always a story arc in afford anymore about to dawn in a minute, which is headed in zone two id to realize how is then getting old, some unimodel, jump on, can't even call me anything happened to use in the army come always a story arc in 4A anymore, I'll be grateful for the towns and learned to act in a 4A anymore. I'll be gone. Grateful for detox and learn to slow, to tag sick, a Jew to gain. I'm grateful for the towns and learned to slow ditch tag sick lead you to gain. Versus a lot of mouth sounds in this bridge like that. Like just a gross stuff. But the good news is, it says I've compressed it a lot. So there's a lot of dot's like just unwanted sounds that are kind of on the noise floor that are kind of coming up. But a lot of them are kind of the in-between phrases. So I'm able to, I think I'll be able to chat most of amount. That's been grateful for the towns and learned to slow ditch tag sick HUD gain. I'm grateful for the towns and learned to slow twitch tags sick lead you to gain and I'm grateful for the time span. Slow to each tag saying a Jew to gain are grateful for the towns and learned to slow with each tag. So grateful for the towns to slow each tag saying this, to learn to slow sick, a2 to be grateful for the towns. And learned to slot with each tag saying, grateful for the town. It says, learn too slow to say the duty, get. Grateful for to towns. Anonymous says, and learn to slow the tag. Say HUD gave you a due to this day, you simply gave the number element to Jeff thing. Coming dominated non-one, non knows what it used to be IK buffered element. I use this stage of things. Don't need to know Manon with snow, which is still a Hagan song that I need to raise eyes. How as they get old time you'd among them. But just to HF, I can't even call me anything until you send the army always storing in a 4A and grateful for the Times is learn to slow ditch tags, say a Jew to gain on this in order to use them. I gave them a food out there. Here's I'm gonna do, I'm gonna drop it out. An economics mechanisms doubles on the bridge right here. Just think about structure and bonding. Grateful for to Tom. And I'm going to bring it back in the second part. And that's in, we're gonna go, we're gonna go SMB, they'll build up and break down. If it is going to be low, low build up and break down. I'll show what we going to do is how are we going to do it? Shrug about, I'm building a Finland a major rainfall for two times. And learn to slow at each tag, saying, grateful for the towns. And learned to slow. Hud. Grateful for the Times. All the knowledge and learn to slow which tags are grateful for the towns. And learned to slow that she tags, say, a Jew to give. Or do you think Amit age had to struggle what I'm building a failing unmade, grateful for D times. Too slow to each a tag saying, yes, can learn to slot with each tag saying, Hey Jude, in the same way I use them. I gave them. Change, update, num one non-tone language, stayed friends and Manhattan or drink. Last part I promised last part. Last part. Interstate state to a friend. In the States, you have friends in Manhattan for danger and the pain, the fashion in the States, if friends in Manhattan for danger and the pain to fashion topology in the bank, the max and I couldn't break with the boss you imagine literally, but I'm done with the fashion converges in the bank, the maximum occurred in breaking the boss. You imagine literally when I'm done, like I couldn't break through the basilar. I couldn't break from the boss you imagine literally, but I'm dies in a major. Omega0 mustn't mistake. Katelyn, what do you think got me to Asia had to struggle what I'm building a feeling amazing. New state may tell me how it never making a lesson into made, Tell me I would never make a must be a mistake. To think Amit had to struggle what I'm feeling, this must be 80 of friends in Manhattan for a drained drawn the pain, the fashion. So G's in the bank d1 action. I couldn't break from the boss you imagined literally when I'm dies lane, coming out would never make aimlessly mistake facility much you think got me to Asia, had to struggle what I'm building and I made a mistake. You have friends in Manhattan. You've escaped to your friends in Manhattan, or a drain on the pain he fashioned, converges in the bank. The max, I couldn't break through the boss imagine, literally come down in amaze. You state your friends in Manhattan for danger and the pain, the fashion. So g is in the bank, the National, I couldn't break the boss whom I could emerge from, the boss you imagined, when I'm done with somebody, I would never making a mustn't mistake facility. What do you think I need to? Asia had to struggle. What I'm Belinda Finland, amazing kind of states. You have friends in Manhattan for drainage around the pain. For a couple of the bank, the maximum I could immigrate from the boss. Imagine literally when I'm dying a plane amaze Tommy, I would never make a mistake. A mistake. Penicillin, what do you think I made it? A, had to struggle what I'm building a field and a message. Grateful for the time spent is learned too slow to GTAC sick a Judy gain at a much rainfall for the town is too slow to each tag say a duty caveat about this and what they used to be. I gave the comfort out. There you go, ladies and gentlemen, those are some clean up vocals. So my vocals look like with the breadth chopped out, feels a little bit more professional. You can hide a lot doing this. A lot of the mistakes by someone who records in a small closet in the bedroom. Hopefully your bedroom producer as well. And that's how you can kinda make due the next piece of this, the last piece is going to be the mastering phase. But we're really, really close. It's just kinda dialing in a few last knobs and switches and then we'll be out of here. So stick around for the last part and we'll get you rocking and rolling. 8. Mastering + Finishing Touches: Alright, we're we're, we're in the home stretch. So one of the things I do want to talk to you about for this kind of mastering phase is now we're going to just, I'm really going to, this is what I'm going to dial in the reference track a lot, the Drake track to really start to feel how it's going to feel overall. A couple of things I wanna touch on though before we get there. First of all, this is a plug-in that I use on every single track. I need to be an affiliate. I'm not I think it's like 30 bucks or 50 bucks. Not again, not a necessity, but I found it super-helpful shoutout to my one of my business partners hero, who's just the man. And he put me onto this, it's called track spacer. It's a little bit confusing to learn how to work, but pretty much its side chain. So you add it to some instrument. Now show you what I mean. So you add it to an instrument, and then once you have, once it's on there, you can add it to all your instruments, whatever. You're going to copy the vocals and make a copy of them, but these aren't actually playing. This is gonna sound confusing. I know, but stay with me. When it's on. It pretty much will duck out whatever the instrument is to your vocals. So if you listen right now, because it's at 0, to think of this as zeros. A dry wet knob like this is completely ducking the instrument app for my vocals. This would be the bypass. It uses five cubed. So I diode this into taste just to get the vocals to mesh with the instruments. So that's what I'm gonna do. This is what it used to be. I gave the thing come and don't even know what it used to be icky with buffoon element, I needed no more nano, which is still the good zone that, alright, so that's kind of just a general place where it's at right now. We're going to bringing those doubles up, bring that up to enough to scroll so much. And now I'm going to listen to my Drake track and then would come in and start mastering and tell you guys kinda what I've got going on down here. So Drake track, here's a thing to keep in mind. Every single year that tracks are going to be louder. So this was a few years ago. So listen to how loud his vocals are in this track. That wasn't how loud they are in this track. Right? Totally different coming to this. So keep that in mind. Mine are going to be a lot louder right now because I just like to, I like my vocals loud. But in terms of the overall feel, I'm gonna be using that Drake trek to kind of dial it in. Here's, here's my mastering chain. This is dope. So this is a tutorial and, and of itself again, I'm, I'm mixing Turiel, break this down in my mastering, mixing, mastering real vocals tutorial. I've broken this down. It's the, it's a free loudest meter. Needless to say, I jump into it, they're not gonna jump into Ton here. You're looking for, I shoot for ballpark and negative ten laughs. Don't worry about it if you don't wanna means but you're shooting for negative ten. I've explained in another video or it can google it, that's I'm shooting for negative ten bluffs in this overall vibe. Here's how I do it. This is a mastering UQ. I'm going to be totally honest with you. I rarely EQ much in the master because I'm still learning my mastering. And you can really kind of mess things up. This is when you're like super, super subtle changes that you're going to dive into when it comes to your mastering. But here's what one thing I do like to do. I like to roll-off all of the low end. And this is hard to explain. But there, there's mid-side EQ. So pretty much what I'm doing is I'm actually going to show you is easier to show you than to talk about it. I like to, to, to roll-off the bottom from the side. So listen to the beat right now without this on, and listen to specifically the kick drum and eight awaits, they're gonna go from feeling a little bit stereo to mono. But because those are my low-end, I want those Mono. So pick this. I'm hoping that you guys can feel that. So that's what I have engaged there. Again, that's the only thing that I put a little bit of high end here, just overall, again, I'm putting some analog saturation on the entire track. One dB from everything above 800 hertz. Again, right now I'm just kind of getting at the, I'm bringing out the high-end pieces of this. A little bit of compression. Not much. This is something I might actually need to dial in more because I put these on just kind of haphazardly while I was doing this. I could bring up some volume and now I'm kinda gotta go back in. I'm not, I don't want more than one dB compression here. Input drive, obviously I've got to stand so I'm adding some compression. I'm taking some of the drive, some of the volume off again, one dB max. Then watch your ears to someone that's gonna get allowed. I love this thing. This is the classic clipper. Again, these are all T-Rex is the T-Rex bundle. And this is, I like to use this more than a limiter. And again, I stole this from, helped me live on. Because the way that it shapes the sound right here, as you can tell what the slope, this is kinda a delimiter, does its very aggressive and it's, it's a, it, that this is more of like around curve compared to like a hard, it's less harsh. I find it in this regular lattice my volume from, and then I'll finish out the volume at the pro L2. So we'll say he didn't online. What did it use? The IP well, yep. Resound it uses what I'm shooting for with this limiter is just to catch the peaks, just that kicks in the snares. You don't want the whole thing to be in order to be catching all your transient. So in this lesson I'm going to use the I gave enough. It will change up to some unknown needed non-one non jobs. What DBH, ip commend dominated Naaman in zone that the degree is x. How is the good old time? Yeah, not bad damages. Even call me anything you happen to use and the AMI claw always a story I can 4a and grateful for the tom spent the night and learn to slow to a Jew to good use. I gave the command dominated non-line or not, to use the proof. I gave the buffoon. Thank you. Stayed to your friends in Manhattan or drainage around the pain you fashioned converges in the bank. The max, I couldn't break from the boss you imagine literally but I'm dies plain amazing coming out. I never making a must be mistaken. Hustle and much you think got me to age, had to struggle what I'm building a female and a male. Grateful for the nonces, learned two slowed, it should say, the Jew to gain are grateful for the towns. And learned to slow to, a Jew to give. This is what I use to be. Given the upper die. Did non-line or not to use. I gave that to figure out how many times each state to have friends and men had. So ladies and gentlemen, that's pretty much how you gonna do it to get this accurate, this you lean, you have to play the whole trek from start to finish since mine like kinda bounced back in it, it's not totally accurate, but around 9.7 is alright, probably negative ten is probably little better. I'd probably go back and work on the bounce a little bit, play my Drake track again. But to me that sounded good. Again, one thing you don't want to do before you bounce it and all that. These are headphones. These are nice headphones. I'm gonna listen back and my Apple, my crappy Apple headphones, and then off my laptop speakers and dial it in. And I have a feeling, I'm probably going to need to pull the snare in some, maybe some hi-hats. Because after you're in this master like boosting the high-end pieces, like some of us can get a little bit, doesn't start to get away from you. So couple of things there. Hopefully you learned a thing or two. Thank you for sticking around if you made it this far. And don't forget about the downloads in the course description. I'll take you on the next one piece.
