Harmony Recording Awesomeness - These easy, fun-but-super-informative videos will show you everything you need to know to record multi-part harmonies that sound like they were recorded in a commercial studio.
Recording your music alone in your home studio can be challenging, especially if you want vocal harmonies in your song. What if you don't know any other singers? And even if you do, getting them to your place, teaching them the parts, and then recording everybody can be a huge hassle.
I grew up loving groups like Journey, Kansas, Queen, Chicago, the Beatles, Boston, The Eagles, ELO and Dan Fogelberg. They all had incredible sounding vocal harmony and I wanted to sing those songs.
Problem: of my friends who could sing, none of them could sing harmony!
Solution: Sing all the harmonies myself.
How did I do that? Well it wasn't easy in the 80s! I used two tape recorders and bounced my voice back and forth between them until there was 3 or 4 part harmony. It was cool, but it was god-awful noisy (gotta love cassette tape recording). And I certainly could not afford to go to a recording studio.
I was stuck doing things this way until computer recording came around with easily affordable high-quality sound and unlimited tracks. If this technology had been available when I was a kid, I may never have seen the light of day:). The point is - now everyone can afford great- sounding recording capability. And anyone can record harmonies and make them sound like Queen, or Kansas...if they know the right techniques.
Hear what just one voice (mine) can sound like (of course you can do this with multiple singers too:))
These 18 videos will show you step-by step - using either the free Audacity, or the crazy-affordable super-professional software called Reaper, how to start recording your own awesome vocal harmonies
You get 18 videos and pdf transcriptions for each one.
