About this course:

Quality substance comes in quality wrappings!
Lots of e-learning courses, podcasts and other vocal recordings have superb content, but suffer from poor recordings and audio treatment! The same can be said about some vocal artists: Rappers with great skill and singers with touching lyrics sometimes sound like they recorded the vocals in a bucket and loose lots of the emotional appeal and power they could have!
However: Often, it's NOT the expensive microphone, a high-end preamp or renting a studio for loads of money, BUT room treatment, proper recording technique and some simple tricks to improve the character of your vocal material drastically. This course teaches you how to set up your room, the microphone and shows how to use software solutions to help you to get loud and clear voice tracks!

- This course is meant for students who want to record speech for video platforms, audio books, online education, podcasts etc. and like to improve the quality of their voice recordings.
- This course is useful for singers or rappers who like to record the vocals on their own in a home enviroment and like to achieve better recording quality.
Recording levels are vital for high quality recordings. Make sure to record as loud as possible, but not too loud. Normalize the data afterwards to use the headroom to get a nice, loud vocal signal.
Please note: If you're looking for more infomation on the material, be sure to watch the A/B-tests in the Bonus Section!
This bonus lecture tries to clarify some topics that came up in the discussion area. I use the technique of AB-testing to demonstrate how different recording levels and normalization will affect the final noise level.
PLEASE NOTE: The recordings were made intentionally noisy so you could hear the differences clearly. In general, if your recording has such a high noise level, you should take a step back, think about the reasons for the noise and re-record the material to get the highest quality.
This bonus lecture was a suggestion by some students that want to make "talking head" videos and recordings. I bought a quite cheap microphone, record a sentence with the mic and my studio condenser mic simultaneously and point out difference as well as tricks for the treatment.
Please not: The whole audio is NOT processed, so the beginning sounds a bit worse due to the microphone.
