MAKE YOUR HIPHOP TRACKS

COMPETE WITH ANY COMMERCIAL RELEASE

Are you a Rapper, HipHop producer or recording engineer?

If so, chances are that you’ve heard one of your favourite bangers in the club and thought to yourself:

‚Dang, I wish I knew how to make my own productions hit as hard as this!‘

We love the massive 808s & kicks that hit us right in the chest. The unique production elements, which make songs hooky & insantly recognizable and the tight vocal delivery that blends perfectly with the beat.

However… if you’ve been producing HipHop for a while, you’ll know that it’s NOT easy get your tracks to sound like that.

So… how can YOU achieve this sound in your own productions?

HipHop beats tend to have sparse arragements, which makes it crucial to focus on two things:

1. Get great sounds at the source: Start off with professional recordings
2. Creative Mixing: Focus on each invididual element and make it sound unique, to create timless classics that stay on top of people’s minds.

In his latest course, professional engineer David Gnozzi teaches you how to achieve both of these things:

PART I: Vocal Recording

Virtually sit in a recording session with rapper ‘Deezel’ and learn you how to select the right microphone and preamp to fit the artists voice. Understand how to set up your Compressors and EQs to achieve a raw vocal sound, that compliments the rappers flow & delivery.

PART II: Mixing

In the second part, David walks you through the mixing process step by step: 
Learn how to achieve a massive lowend that carries the song, how to mix synths, vocals, adlibs and create special effects to create a your own trademark sound.

The best part?

David mixes 100% in the box, using plugins only, so you can achieve the same results in your Home studio!

Sounds amazing right? – But there’s more!

PART III: Mastering

There’s one more crucial step to take your song over the finish line and make it sound great on all playback systems:
Mastering!

Learn how to use plugins to master your tracks at home, so they’re ready to be released on Spotify, iTunes and take the clubs my storm. – So what are you waiting for?

Pick up this course and take your sound to the next level:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN FROM THIS COURSE

Beats That Hit Hard – Even On Earbuds!

The pride of any HipHop track is its beat. David doesn’t only show you how to achieve a powerful low-end and hard-hitting snares, but also how to blend multiple layers of instruments that enhance the groove of the track and how you can give each element its own space in the mix.

Mix In-Your-Face Rap Vocals:

You want your vocals to sound raw and in-your-face, so the rapper’s flow and delivery can dominate the track. However, if you leave your vocals too dry (without any effects), they’ll stick out like a sore thumb and won’t blend with the beat. Bob shows you how to mix tight and up-front vocals and how to subtly work in effects to help them blend with the beat without losing authenticity.

Build Excitement & Tension

Let’s face it: Beats can be repetitive at times.
– And that’s not a bad thing, it puts you in a certain head space and vibe! However, you would be surprised at all the little details that are done in the mixing stage, which help to build tension and keep the listener engaged. Learn how to get creative with effects and automation to establish a signature sound, which people will remember!

Mastering: Impact & Loudness

Mastering is crucial, especially in HipHop. If you get the mastering processing wrong, you can easily ruin your whole mix.

This tutorial David will show you how to take you mix to a competitive loudness, so it can stand up next to any commercial release. – Without losing low-end impact, causing distortion or a ‘pumping effect’.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT OUR TUTORIALS:

Vocals being the king of the song, it was always tricky for me to get them right – especially when you have multiple stacks of adlibs. This tutorial really helped me out by seeing the vocal chains step by step and the thought process behind every decison. By following the techniques I’ve learned from this course my vocals are sounding a lot more polished and professional.
