Course 4: Studio Preparation

You’ve got the lyrics, the main vocal melody, the bass, and the drum parts. In other words, you’re on fire! Now’s the time to lay it all out, flesh out those vocals, fine-tune the foundation before you go into the studio to record the real vocals you’ll be using in your song. Before we delve into full-on studio preparation, let’s get into the fundamentals of audio clips and the possibilities Ableton’s Warp Engine provides—stuff yesterday’s music producers could only dream about! Along the way we’ll get into the anatomy of a song, tuning your voice in Melodyne, pitch-perfect rehearsing, and we’ll take a virtual field trip to the makers at Shure.
