About This Class

Get better at recording vocals and voice overs at home. Without spending a fortune!

It’s easy for anyone to start recording vocals at home with modern affordable equipment.

But there is a huge problem. Information is spread all over the internet and it’s hard to find good advice. There is a lack of awareness of the importance of recording technique.

When it comes to music, vocals are often the hardest thing to nail at home.  It’s hard to make vocals sit in the mix. Most of the time, you can hear that they were recorded in a small untreated room.

The internet is full of podcasts, videos and courses with awful sound quality. The voice recording is hard to understand and irritating to the ear. In some cases it’s simply unintelligible!

Improve your technique for recording vocals and vocie overs. It’s the easiest step to increasing the quality of your releases. Yet it is so often neglected!

Vocals sound like they were recorded in a completely different space and don’t gel with the music. Speech is often understandable but sounds distant, thin or odd. This has a proven negative effect on the perception of your work. To give that premium feel, you need high quality vocal and voice recordings.

Follow the simple steps outlined in this course. You will quickly and easily improve your music, podcasts, audiobooks, voice overs or videos. In fact, anything that includes vocals, spoken word or dialog can be improved without difficulty.

This will impress your current fans. Attract new customers. Increase sales, downloads or streams.

All you need is a microphone and a stand which can cost you as little as $40!
