Key things to remember:


You will need to figure out the key of the song you are working on.  You can use some free apps available, or the website ”” to find the key of the beat you are recording to.  Make sure to set your pitch correction plugins to the CORRECT key for your vocals to sound in tune. 

Autotune will only give you the desired effect if you are IN THE CORRECT KEY. 



All of “BUS” sends are used for reverb, delays and imaging effects.  Feel free to play with these and increase the amount of each setting depending on the vocals/song you are  working on.
