The human voice is incredibly versatile and dynamic. It can change in an instant from a whisper to a scream, or a soft heart-felt vocal to an operatic crescendo. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to control the highs and lows of your dialogue, narration or voiceovers using a variety of tools – chief among them, is the compressor.
Enhance Your Dialogue Tracks
The spoken word is the primary instrument for delivering your message, and anything that detracts from it will have an adverse effect on your listener. You’ll learn powerful techniques such as EQ carving to enhance dialogue clarity and keep unwanted sounds from muddying up your mix.
Create a Fitting Voiceover Track
In the sound editing section of the tutorial you’ll learn how to retime voiceover to a specific duration using Logic’s powerful Flex algorithm to quickly change the timing of your talent’s delivery without changing the pitch.
Make Your Vocals Pitch Perfect
You’ll learn some great techniques for adding Reverb to your vocals, how to thicken a vocal recording without changing pitch, and how to turn an audio recording into a MIDI instrument.
This tutorial is for anyone who wants to improve the quality of their dialogue and voice tracks and assumes basic familiarity with Logic Pro X. We recommend watching Getting Started in Logic Pro X before going through this tutorial.
