Recording Rock Vocals


Lesson Info


Every great rock song starts with a stellar vocal. Get ready to learn the fundamentals of recording rock vocals from Andrew Wade, who’s worked with A Day to Remember, Motionless in White, and dozens more.

Andrew will cover everything you need to know about recording, editing, and mixing vocals for modern rock songs. You’ll learn about mic selection and positioning, key mixing techniques, and the secrets of time and pitch correction. You’ll also learn about how to work with each individual artist to get the sound they want.

By the end of this course, you’ll be fully equipped to work with a variety of male or female vocalists to get the results you need, from screaming to cleans and everything in between.



  • This is a superb course, was full of great informations and it has inspired me a lot. Learned alot of things, thanks to Andrew for this great presentation and sharing his knowledge and experience with us, also thanks to the people in the audience for bringing up good question and to the creative live team for making this happen. I really hope Andrew will come back to Creative Live someday, perhaps with a full course especially about working out and creating vocal harmonies :-)
  • No offense, there was A LOT of good information provided in this series but Mr. Wade seemed unprepared, often shifting through notes and pausing as if he hadn't gone through what he wanted to say. Its like he made slides but didn't actually fine tune what he was going to say. I know not all of us are fantastic speakers, myself included, but if I'm going to be spending money I expect not to have multiple dead pauses in what I was going to be communicated to me. I'm paying for someone to tell me that the environment should not "smell weird"? There is a fair amount of filler and obvious statements "be a normal person." I want to know gear, schematics, and positioning. Thats what I'm paying for. I was expecting something like Treehouse produces, not an off the cuff presentation. That being said, I will probably be purchasing the guitar session because I believe Mr. Wade still has a lot of wisdom to give, even if that message is maybe 1 hour out of the 5 I am paying for.
  • Absolutely essential information in this course. Very in depth. Even if you went and interned at a studio with a reputable producer, it would probably take months to absorb all the information so cohesively laid out in the course. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking to properly record their own vocals, or for anyone looking to record other bands (whether in a bedroom, or a million dollar studio). Loved watching, learned a TON (learned a lot of great pro tools shortcuts as well). Well worth the money. Thanks for doing it Mr. Wade.
