About This Class

This course breaks down all of the variables involved with recording vocals for music; how to choose the right microphone, set the preamp and compressor, and how to run your D.A.W. most effectively.  We take you through the steps of a typical recording session using a professional studio (Madison Records) and singer (Alex Tru).  Various microphones, Vintech 573 preamp, EL8 Distressor compressor, and Pro Tools software are all utilized and explained in detail.  Additionally, there is a section dedicated to post-production techniques.  We explain what to do after you have finished recording.  Comping vocals, editing, and basic mixing techniques are all covered in this section.

Matt Hayes

Recording and Mixing Engineer

I have been involved in the music industry for over 15 years, and have been engineering (recording and mixing) for over 10 of those years. Originally, I started out as a musician before becoming involved behind the scenes in recording studios. I have worked in many different genres of music through the years, and I am a voting member for the Grammy Awards. Some of the music I have worked on is RIAA certified as well as grammy nominated.
