    Reason number one for doing this episode series: Malcom wanted to say "SUPER HACKS" on the show. 🤷Reason number two for doing this episode: There are a couple of tricks that we've discovered and learned over the years, which we would actually call "super hacks", because they are really useful, sped up our workflow, solved problems for us and increased the quality of our work. Of course we wanted to share those with you!
    Part 2 is about mixing "hacks". If you find these helpful and are a sucker for hacks and tricks like we are, we might even do a third one. We'll see. (Hint: Your feedback, reviews, etc. are helpful here. ;-))

    Listen now, take notes and use these super hacks in your next session!

    A great vocal recording is all about the performance. Emotion, energy and vibe are so much more important than microphones, plugins or recording techniques.

    But how do you learn to sing with confidence? How do you write songs that fit your natural voice? How do you know what you're even capable of, so that you can really give it your all in the recording session? And what can you do to make sure your voice will last and you won't hurt yourself even after days of full-on recording or touring?

    Well, there are a couple of great exercises, habits and things you can implement right away. Great starting points that are available to everyone who's willing to put in some effort.

    And if you're serious about it and really want to take your vocal technique to a new level?

    That's where a voice teacher comes in. Vocal lessons are so underrated and so many artist don't take advantage of this opportunity to drastically improve their songs and recordings.

    For this episode we sat down with vocal coach Matt Ramsey of ramseyvoice.com to talk about all of this, give you plenty of actionable advice that you can implement right away and to get answers to our burning questions on how to improve our vocal recordings.

    Matt is a voice teacher and YouTuber with over 170,000 subscribers who's helped thousands of people find their natural singing voice and level up their vocal game.

    Now he's here to help you and your band, too!
    Let's go!

How do you keep track of all the magic moments happening in a session, so that you can move on quickly and then reliably come back to find them? How do you navigate your session quickly and switch between tasks? What about going back to previous stages of the session, archiving files and accessing mixes, stems, masters, demos etc quickly and everywhere?

    If you don't have a good answer to any of these questions, this episode is for you.

Binnenschiffer ,

Great and very informative

I really like listening, because there are so many more information I get through it. I came as a self-recording drummer, now I know so much more and got more knowledge about drum recordings.
Thank you for that!
