EXPLANATION

A very experienced vocalist. 5 studio albums to her credit. Everyone can use some correction and enhancement. She sang her part 3 times (3 individual stems)  and we corrected some pitch and vibrato here and there and thickened up things with the mults (after applying our magic formant & syllable sauce). And she wanted to hear what harmony would sound like so we created some using her voice. She loved it - see what you think.

DOUBLING

(multing)

Voice doubling is an age old "trick" of many masters. The best way to do it is to sing the part again "on top" of the original. The second best way to do it is to double your original and insert very small timing, pitch and formant differences. We will analyze your stems(s) and we may ask you to double the vocals a couple times and send those too. And don't worry about timing differences - we can deal with those too.

Pitch Correction

Not autotune! Analysis of your vocal stems with consideration given to the relationship to your music stems is paramount. Sometimes it's better to be slightly sharp or flat! Sometimes that's where the "edge" is. Obvious pitch mistakes are corrected of course. Bending notes is also a specialty. Augmenting slides and changing slide timing is another possible correction/enhancement. 

Timing

We all know it's important to follow the beat but seemingly subtle differences can make all the difference. We sometimes "push" the timing for emphasis. It's pretty amazing what we can do here.

Pitch Modulation

Lot's of voices (especially untrained ones) have vibrato issues that make them sound "off". Flattening uncontrolled and uneven modulations will make for a solid more consistent vocal tone. You will hear the change, but it isn't fake. 

Harmonies:

It's true that we can create harmonies from your original lead stems. Not all songs benefit from harmonies but a surprising number do. We will suggest and you can decide.
