Chopping Up Vocals Over Your Beats

Chopping Up Vocals Over Your Beats

Why Do My Beats Feel Like They’re Missing Something?

Do you ever ask yourself this question?

It’s probably because you don’t have any vocals over the beat!

In this video, I’ve shown you how to chop up vocals, add cool effects to blend them in, and make them sound nicer. Finally, I show how to do a cool side-chain effect to keep the delayed vocal out of the way of the original while it’s playing!

Slicex Over FL Slicer/Edison

Recently, I was determined to learn Slicex by FL Studio.

After a bit of fiddling, you start to make sense of what things do, or at least how you can use it to do what you want it to!

In my previous sampling.. I would either use the FL Slicer.. which I feel doesn’t give even close to as much flexibility with your chops as Slicex. Or, I would try to manually chop them in Edison, then click and drag. (Talk about makeshift beats lol).

But eventually, I realized, Slicex is a real powerful tool for blending in chops of sampled audio, with a real cool interface to add to that!

The Warmth and Comfort of the Human Voice,

As mentioned in the video, something about a vocal over a beat completes it. And it’s not just cause they’re words being spoken over a song. Even quick sample hits that don’t make sense yet still sound amazingly catchy!

Anyways, something to think about implementing into one of your beats to practice the skill!

The Benefits of Sends

I use sends pretty regularly. They are really great for just blending in the amount of effect you like, and I use them quite often in tutorials as well. So if you don’t know what they are, or how they work, read this post.

Remixing Songs with Samples + Sample Chops?

Well, thankfully I have a post on remixing as well!

Is there Anything That Stood Out to You?

While going over the first beat that will be off my InstraVocals, creating the beat, or adding the effects onto the vocals, is there anything that you stumbled upon, thought was cool, or would like to learn more about?

I’d appreciate it if you let me know! (I may make videos on them, or have a quick answer to help you on your way!).
