This past weekend was a whirlwind in the studio!
Over the past year I’ve been quietly writing and producing a hip hop record with my good friend. And after months and months of writing and arranging, it was time to finish up. So last weekend we shut ourselves in and tracks a TON of vocals.
When I say a ton, I really mean it. Saturday was a solid 10 hours of recording. And Sunday went from 10 am until 1:30 am Monday morning, for a whopping 15.5 hours.
And while there was plenty of rapping, there were also plenty of friends who sang on the record as well.
I love the vocalists who sang on this record, both for their friendship and immense talent on the mic. But I know in this modern era that people are very used to vocals that have been tuned to perfection.
(So much so, in fact, that it’s actually weird to hear vocals these days without any correction.)
AutoTune flipped the audio world on its head when it hit the scene. And then Melodyne came, which gave us an unprecedented tool kit for tuning vocals.
And although both are great tools, I much prefer Logic’s own Flex Pitch when it comes to editing vocals.
Why would I prefer Flex Pitch over Melodyne or AutoTune? Well, because:
- Flex Pitch is built right into Logic
- Flex Pitch’s interface is intuitive
- Flex Pitch uses all the same mouse tools and key commands
- Flex Pitch provides advanced editing features for no extra cost
For me, my favorite tools are the ones that keep my workflow fast and efficient. And Flex Pitch does exactly that.
In today’s video, I take you by the hand and walk you through the the brilliant editing features of Flex Pitch and what they can do.
On top of that, I share my personal workflow for tuning up vocals:
- How I use “Set to Perfect Pitch” to make the process of pitch correction super easy to take care of.
- How I use Pitch Drift and Vibrato to fix bad notes when regular Pitch correction isn’t working.
- How I use the “80% Philosophy” to fix my vocals while keeping their humanity.
- And how to fix vocals when Flex Pitch isn’t doing the trick.
