Get inside his beat-making and producing workflow – from jamming out in the studio and working with live instrumentation to quickly translating the ideas into his DAW.

Make your vocals shine

Get your vocals to sit in your mix and embellish them with clever edits – from removing unwanted frequencies and leaving space for the backing vocals, to tuning and adding as well as automating effects to have contrast and dynamics.
