HI! My name is 24LDZ. I am a record producer, mix and master engineer. I have been producing music for over 12 years now and I have an array of successful independent artists including record labels I have worked with both as a producer and as a mix engineer. I have experience producing and engineering multi-genres such as; RnB, Pop, Afrobeat, Afro-Gospel, Rap, Acoustic to name a few. For those who care to know, I hold a BA (Hons) in Creative Music Production from one of UK's best universities and a MA in Advanced Music Technology.
Here is why my Team and I created this course for you.
I spent years trying to figure out how to make vocals sound crisp, punchy, and industry-sounding like the songs that top the billboards and songs that win the grammy’s but I never seemed to get it. I had watched loads of YouTube videos/tutorials on mixing vocals but they were not clear and detailed. I kept asking myself ‘what magic do these engineers do’. Then I began to pay closer attention to mixes in songs of multiple genres, training my ears to identify what popular song mixes actually sound like and then I created my own way of mixing. The knowledge of which I collated from diverse and extensive research, books and pdfs on mixing and from universities where I studied music production.
Hence, in this course, I will be showing you how to mix your vocals professionally and getting them sounding sweet, crisp, punchy, clean and ready for mastering.
