New course announcement!
It takes a meticulous level of detail and skill to be competitive as a modern songwriter and artist. You’re often expected to wear the hat of the engineer, producer, arranger, topliner, and mixer all at the same time, especially when you’re working on your own. Being able to write a really good song just isn’t enough anymore.
So if you’re a DIY home-recording songwriter or producer striving for success in today’s music industry, Soundfly’s brand new mentored online course, Modern Pop Vocal Production, can help you learn everything you need to know to achieve that crystal-clear Top 40 sound.
Even if you’re just out to learn how to produce better-sounding vocals in your home studio, there are procedures, techniques, skills, and processing chains that we’ll introduce you to, so you never have to spend another dime in a pro recording studio again.
In this course, as with all of Soundfly’s mentored online music courses, you’ll get six weeks of one-on-one coaching from an expert Soundfly Mentor who will tailor the course to your personal goals and experience level. With your mentor, you’ll work on everything from arranging background vocals to advanced editing techniques, tuning, mixing, automation, and more. We’ll discuss effects like saturation, flangers, phasers, and doublers, and we’ll show you how you can create momentary effects (like delay throws) to create a more dynamic and engaging vocal performance. You’ll get the hands-on practice and expert feedback you need to achieve the exact sound you’re after.

“No matter how layered your songs are, we can show you a systematic approach to make your vocals sound powerful and present. Spoiler alert: It takes a lot of meticulous, time-consuming work, but the results are so worth it!” ~ Sırma Munyar, course instructor
