Transform Your Rough Recordings Into Released Records, Even If You Only Have a Home Studio

Here’s how my friend Rebecca is already improving her vocal productions


Let me tell you a story of my friend Rebecca.

Rebecca De La Torre is a great engineer/producer and musician, in addition to being a dear friend of mine.

She has a cool recording studio up in Tempe, Arizona and I even went on her Youtube show back in The Long Wait days:

That’s me on the right, in case you were wondering 😛

Rebecca was actually one of the early beta users of Expert Home Vocals and I was really happy to have her on as a beta tester because I knew that if she thought the course was good, I could stop worrying about being a perfectionist.

She actually has my personal phone number so when I saw she joined Expert Home Vocals I sent her a quick thank you:

Rebecca already has a great voice, but she’s always looking to learn more to make her voice sound even better in her recordings.

I love helping people like Rebecca out, and when I asked her why she joined, this is what she said:

“I just realized that, especially considering you have focused SO much time on recording/mixing/producing, that there’s GOT to be some golden nuggets I’m gonna get from this class to really make my vocals more amazing. My only doubt was whether I would really learn something new. Well, in the email you sent out where you showed an example of your vocal bus, using the Stereo Spread plugin as a side-chain had never occurred to me! So that convinced me that, as usual, I don’t know what I don’t know, and for $100 I’m gonna get better. Actually, I already used that Stereo Spread on the side chain last night and I like the results better than having it on the main channel’s bus (like I’ve always done before).”

Rebecca is a great piano player as well, and you can actually hear her playing piano on one of the vocal production examples I show you on the Expert Home Vocals course page.

It’s a little song dear to my heart called “Coming Back.”

Check it out here, right at about 25% down the page.
