Thank you for your insightful Skillshare course, great advice here on the more psychological side of production. I am deeply in love with the soundtoys plugins and Izotope as well. They're just amazing.
I will definitely use this in future projects! I've created this track through a similar proces, though my vocalist already had quite a nice chorus she sent me and had a rough track structure in mind.
She sent me her work afterwards, I've added chopped and heavily processed edits of her vocals throughout the track, and of course improved the mix. She added a great outro, for which I created a vocal harmony by pitching the line according to the chords.
