Interview with Morcheeba's Paul Godfrey
Seasoned producer and artist Paul Godfrey shares his opinion on the changes in modern vocal production and how VocAlign is essential for any producer and mix engineer.
Producing a record is very different to a few decades ago. Singers tend to record fewer takes so there is more reliance on tools to correct as well as enhance the performance. That means plugins like VocAlign are crucial to fix imperfections or change the style completely with the material you have to work with.
It’s even possible for a producer to change the timing and pitch of a performance using VocAlign Ultra. Godfrey tells us how he did just that – recording a rap in the correct flow, using his take as the timing reference, and then manipulating the original rap to play in his correct timing.
