When vocals are done right they can be the feature element that makes a hit song that tops charts. A vocal is what makes a piece of music a “song”, and not a “track”. But there’s a reason most electronic music doesn’t feature vocals; they’re time consuming and difficult to do well. We’ll cover the basics of how to get professional sounding vocals. These techniques work even if you’ve recorded the vocals in your home studio in a bad room, with inexpensive, low-quality equipment. We’ll use stock Ableton Live effects, as well as my recommended free and paid third-party plugins.
