Logic Pro X 502: Recording Vocals

Josh shows you how to switch on Flex Pitch and enter edit view so you can see your individual notes in a piano roll-style view, with each vocal note inside the audio take directly accessible and editable. You'll see how to easily move notes to new timing and pitch locations, with variable snap settings used to create either a more rigid or a more gentle correction. Josh also demonstrates how to 'cut' notes inside the editor so that you can create more advanced and complex corrections rather than simply moving a note or a collection of notes wholesale.

With Flex Pitch in Logic Pro you can make everything from subtle corrections to huge changes, even altering melodies from major to minor keys and back, or changing the entire key of a clip. It's a powerful and incredibly useful technique when working with vocals, so be sure to check out the whole course for a complete guide to recording vocals in Logic, and where Flex Pitch fits into your workflow.
