Vocal production and arranging is the driving force behind every hit song. In this tutorial, producer and composer Eyal Amir explains how and why he created the vocal arrangements in his latest tune, Latin Dream. See how he works with the captivating vocalist, Tammy Scheffer in creating, the seemingly simple yet extraordinarily complex, vocal tracks in this beautiful recorded, original production.
What makes this tutorial especially unique, is how Eyal combines his DAW screen capture shots alongside actual session footage of Tammy singing to provide both technical and visual illustrations on how he accomplishes his wonderful and unique vocal soundscapes.
Eyal also shows you how he studiously designs his complex lead, doubling and backing vocal tracks. Listen as he explains how he constructs his vocal arrangement to heighten the emotional and lyrical impact of the song. Also included in this tutorial are a series of videos examining Eyal’s harmony, counterpoint and harmonic target note techniques that form the harmonic foundation of his vocal arrangements.
So if you're looking for some new and creative vocal production ideas, let Eyal show you how to think Outside The Box and bring your vocal arrangements to a whole new level

Second tutorial with Eyal Amir (I also did his new Cubase 8 course). I really like him.
And, as was the case with his previous course, this one was very useful. Moreover, you can apply much of these lessons to other aspects of music composition. Again, I hope to see more from Eyal and particularly courses using Cubase 8.
I will return to a this tutorial for refreshers. Cheers Eyal.

Outside the Box - Vocal Production and Arranging is a great starting course for covering studio techniques and musical ideas in relation to vocal production. Examples are included that show these techniques being implemented. The concepts are discussed in a manner that makes them easy to learn if you don't already know these techniques. Looking forward to the more advanced courses and what they have to offer!

The song was 6 out of 5 stars! The lessons were mostly aspirational.

If you record ever vocals, you NEED to watch this.
It really is as simple as that!

This course gives a good overview of vocal production techniques, but perhaps should be presented as an introduction. Complex subjects, such as counterpoint, need further in-depth coverage, whether here or separately.

I liked it, but If you don't have much theory knowledge and practice you won't make much use, the ideas are well exposed, but have space to make a much longer tutorial with more explanations.
