Control Vocal Dynamics

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 was a great tutorial. Well spoken and explained. Sounded very knowledgeable. Would recommend this to anyone over spending hours of surfing other tutorials on the web or free you tube tutorials.

    Beautifully well organized and easy to understand. I learned much more quickly than agonizing through the manual or trial and error on my own. Mary’s voice is thankfully calming to listen to. Over all at great tutorial. It helped me meet my deadline.

    Mary did a great job explaining the tools in Logic Pro X. It isn’t easy to find a tutorial that isn’t painted all in music production in mind. I am also a podcaster and Mary helped me a lot understand the tools I need to use for podcast production. She kept information clear and easy to understand.

    Thank you again Mary P and Ripple!

    In the first place I’m not a audio guy I’m an editor and I want to learn more about audio , for me I didn’t find that course that useful, for me Ripple Training are superb in final cut and motion and DaVinci but not audio 😅.

    Clear, concise and very informative. Mary gives a number of different ways to tackle or correct a problem. Watching this tutorial has made me rethink my approach to dialogue tracks.

    Not only was this incredibly useful, but it was fun too. Mary is a great teacher, and to actually have tracks to play with and use to follow along makes all the difference. I have done a lot of tutorials but this is definitely the most applicable, useful, and rewarding. Thanks for doing it!

    As a prosumer video shooter and editor I was intimidated by Logic Pro’s complexity and lengthy text guide compared to GarageBand, but slowly and surely I’m getting more confident using Logic with these short tutorial videos and practice files.

    An excellent resource for working with dialog and voice. It was published just in time for my YouTube activities!

    I learned a lot from this tutorial. However, I think it would have benefited from more focus. In my case, more focus on spoken voice, podcasting. The musical / vocal material was a distraction for me. It might better be moved into a more music-centric tutorial.

    Obvious this is one of those ‘your mileage may vary’ kinds of comments; it’s just me and my particular set of challenges at this point in time.

    The format and presentation are up to the usual Ripple standards. It’s a valuable addition to my library of Ripple educational content.

    Really a great tutorial, I’ve watched most of it at least twice and expect to be referring to it for some time to come. Very valuable insight into several projects for which Logic can be used!

    I bought Logic Pro X several years ago and its complexity relegated it to an unused corner of my SSD. Watching this tutorial is moving me closer to it being my audio tool of choice.

    Mary’s conversational tone is really wonderful. Her description of the tools in Logic has allowed me to use my Mackie Mixer and FMR RNC Compressor more effectively in live events. I also now use my other audio editing software better as well.

    Great tricks of what to do with a “two people with totally different voices recorded onto one track” audio file. Many other great things, highly recommended!

    I have been waiting for this tutorial to come from the guys at Ripple for over a year now. I have only got through the recording videos so far but I am more than happy with what I have seen so far. Mary’s delivery is conversational and engaging and the content seems spot on. Looking forward to viewing the rest.

    This is hands down the best tutorial on recording, editing and mixing dialogue I have ever used! Mary Plummer speaks clearly and at a great pace that makes it a breeze to follow along. ‘Working with Dialogue and Voice in Logic Pro X’ has already allowed me to step up my post production game. If you are looking to learn Logic Pro X do yourself a favor and buy all of Ripple’s tutorials! Ripple Training is the best resource for Logic, Motion and Final Cut Pro one could ever hope for! Thanks Ripple!
