After a year of producing, recording and personal projects I’ve learned a lot and grown a lot as a mixing engineer. In this time I’ve found many good free plugins I’ve come to rely on. I’ve put together this top 10 free VST plugins list that will help give everything you would need to complete a solid mix.

Record Rap Vocals at Home

Posted by on 25.02.2017 in Video

At a family wedding in Jamaica just over a year ago, Inspired to get back into music and finally build the home studio I've always wanted. From then on I spent the entire year learning and honing my craft, everything from production, home recording and mixing.

I mostly record rap vocals in my home studio, which I prefer to have a dry clean sound. Of course it's a well-known fact that apartments are the best place in the world for recording vocals (more like the worst). So I thought I'd share with you what I've learned and how I've setup my space. Using moving some moving blankets and good positioning I've been able to cut down on unwanted room acoustics.

Here's a song I recently recorded at home to give you a sense of the quality I'm getting.

What gear am I using for vocal recording?

So in this video you will see a breakdown of my apartment, where and what I use to record vocals and a few vocal demos of different locations in my apartment to see why I chose the spot I record in.
