We are in the midst of an explosion of musical creativity as a result of technologies that allow you to record music using your laptop or tablet. Whether you are a singer, music producer, audio engineer, or just someone that likes to make good music with vocals, it is essential to have an understanding of vocal technologies for music production.
This music production course provides learners with insight into the voice itself, the recording environment, microphones, equalization, compressors, A-D-A conversion, the listening environment, human perception, natural widening concepts, artificial widening concepts, reverb, delay, and more. Grammy-award winning record producer, audio engineer, recording artist, and educator Prince Charles Alexander offers students a first-hand opportunity to learn the technologies behind vocal production, so that you can enhance your music productions with the most compelling and effective vocal tracks.

Loved this course!! It's essential learning for those interested in producing music. The class is taught by record producer Prince Charles Alexander and goes into every possible aspect of vocal recording and mixing techniques you could possibly think of, from microphone polar patterns to the subtle differences between vocal widening and doubling, as well as several lessons on general mixing techniques to get a feel of where vocals should be placed on a mix. Prince Charles goes into great detail about all of these, and most of the lessons take place in Pro Tools using an actual song so you can get an understanding of how the techniques can be applied in real practice.
The one (somewhat ironic) gripe I had during this course was that during some of the Pro Tools lessons, the audio levels were kind of off where the instructor's voice was really quiet but the tracks in the program were super loud so those were kind of hard to listen to. Overall though, I learned a lot of valuable information I wouldn't have discovered otherwise and would definitely take this course again if I needed to refresh my memory of vocal recording techniques :)
