Vocal Tuning and Editing Introduction
Welcome to day 12 of recording metal with me. This is my creative live bootcamp, and today gonna talk about tuning vocals, editing vocals, and we're gonna cut to a video that my engineer, John Douglas the great, made, because he actually tuned and edited these vocals. If you noticed, we have had very little time in the studio to really track, then edit, track, then edit. It's very, very time crunched, so for the sake of efficiency, as soon as I would finish tracking a song, I would send it to John, he would tune it, then send it back, and then we would track harmonies on top of that, and so actually when we finished recording a vocal melody, we would get that tuned, and then record harmonies on top of that. So a lot of back and forth, and also, this is the type of vocalist where you don't have to be very heavy handed at all with the edits. He's just such a damned good vocalist, you can even get away with no edits and no tuning. So, John put together a video that will take the concept a...
lot further than what we would have actually applied or did apply to this situation.
