Masterclass-Getting Killer Vocals515
If you've been looking to the absolutely BEST training on the planet for Producing, Arranging and Recording Killer Vocals...you've found it! Over 4 hours of Premium Training.

David Wills takes you step by step through the industry best practices that are used in all major studios. Look through all the subjects covered from caring for and warming up your voice, to arrangement, editing and mixing to get the kinds of vocals that you deserve but have not been able to get.
Don't buy another microphone or preamp thinking that will fix your problems...get the training you need to get the vocal sounds of your dreams.

So much information and useful advice for the price of a couple of piano lessons.
The course had everything I needed and more.
This is my forth course from Pro Audio Exp. One of the many things that keeps me coming back is that, by the end of each course, all my questions are answered.
With the use of concrete examples and real life analogies David is able to communicate vocal recording concepts with ease.
His use of the Reason DAW is great too as it emulates a hardware mixer and rack layout. I found this very helpful to graphically see routing etc.
This is a complete package, from human vocal physiology, care and maintenance through all the sound recording techniques and pro tips you’d expect form Pro Audio Exp.
Many thanks David
Great every since I watch this I keep on getting consistent vocals mixes
Great teacher, always excellent courses
David is the best...highly recommend all his videos.
