No modern hit is complete without a sprinkling of effects – what we sleep deprived producers call ‘studio fairy dust!’ Understanding the basic studio effects required to maximise your masterpieces is one thing but what happens when you need something a little more esoteric in the multi effects department? Maybe your mix needs a vocoder, or some bludgeoning tape saturation, or how about a harmonizer to spruce up those staid vocals? Maybe all you really want in life is for the vocalist not to sound like a cat in a blender. Or perhaps you’re sick of the whole audio thing and you want to distort your entire neighbourhood? It’s all covered here both in text and video.
Let me show you how all the necessary studio effects work – from reverb to distortion, chorus to phaser, tape saturation, tubes/valves, all manner of harmonic and enharmonic distortion, filtering, flanging and equally offensive sounding effects. I show you how they work and how and when to use them to best optimise your mix sessions.
Once you have mastered the basic studio effects I ruin your karma by introducing you to all the ‘other’ effects that are rarely covered by online tutorials – scary subjects like the various orders of harmonic distortion, time stretching and pitching, ducking effects on spoken word and so on. In fact, between the fully comprehensive eBook and 30 videos on offer every type of studio effect is covered both technically and in use.
Each process is explained with before and after audio examples so you are afforded real-life working examples instead of reference material that you then need to decipher using Enigma code breakers.
For those that are studio effects savvy I have made sure to provide you with enough technical data to keep you happy in your life choices.
