Getting a great vocal take is arguably one of the most important (and depending on how the session's going, most frustrating) processes in record making, and our friends at Disc Makers have put together a pretty substantial guide to vocal technique called The Vocalist's Guide to Recording, Rehearsing, and Performing. Though the guide is geared primarily towards singers themselves, there are a lot of really cool tips for producers and engineers to aid in coaxing out and capturing the perfect vocal performance. There is also a good deal of foundational information on vocal health, best ways to prep for a vocal session, and tricks to overcome a singer's voice being tired or "off" (like eating potato chips?? Who knew??).

The Disc Maker's guide includes:

  • Care & Maintenance
  • Effective Warm Up / Cool Down
  • Effective Performance
  • Diagnosis of Vocal Problems/Disorders
  • Tips for Producing & Recording Vocals
