Definitive Guide : Full Vocal remixing

This is the biggest set of tutorials we’ve created to date. Remixing defined my career around 2007 and set me all over the world as a DJ and producer – It also helped build this incredible studio – If I can do it so can you and this is my brain-dump on this incredibly important part of modern music culture , but taken from the point of view of a full song !

On this post we’re going to keep the words minimal – We have 3 exceptional videos for you to watch that will cover everything

Part 1 : Intro and Prep

Remixing efficiently and creatively is all about the preparation. After years of remixing at every level I now always spend as much time at the beginning of the process setting things up correctly. It saves so much time and energy later on when you’re in the middle of the creative flow.  Here we cover all these angles and I show you how to successfully time up even the hardest accapella so it’s locked down to your DAW’s bar structure :

Part 2 : Production and Arrangement

Now lets start early to get basic arrangement up and running – Doing so will get you right out of the dreaded ‘loop’ trap  and help you flesh the whole track out in your head . As you already have a vocal you have a great starting point. Let me show you a future proof method for effecting the vocals using parallel techniques that will give you huge amounts of creative control at any stage of your remix when the tweak requests come in . Some invaluable arrangement ideas are already starting to give out track some personality

Part 3 : Production and Mix

We start by showing you the principal musical parts as they went in from hardware and 1 F9 Bass patch and how we can use the rhythms and melodies of the vocals to set up perfect parts for the remix that re-enforce and support the vocal without ever clashing , Final arrangement changes an mix round this epic , Tip-laden 3rd and final video in the tutorial :
