Let me ask you some questions...
- Do you sometimes struggle with eq and compression, and also getting the vocals to sit well in the mix?
- Struggling with Vocal timing and pitch issues?
- Find it hard to have your stock effect plugins get the sound you are looking for with your vocals?
- Finding it hard to add life and character to your vocal performances?
- Want to understanding completely the decision making process that goes into vocal compression?
- Are you getting frustrated with the time it takes you to get a decent sounding vocal, only to be disappointed with the results after comparing it to a mixed and mastered song?
If You Answered "Yes" To Any of These Questions, Then You Need Breakthrough Vocals.
Here is what people have to say about the course so far.

I´m totally satisfied with your work. And the best is, it´s working! Originally as a university trained sound engineer and guitar player i am currently working for around 20 years as a radio manager. At the time with the national radio station in Germany with the name Deutschlandfunk. For my own training and just to have fun, i tried to produce myself, first with my old band, and than as as arranger, singer and producer. Your courses together with Ableton (and my experience with protools) an my singing skills, helped me to produce music on a very high level.

I absolutely love the breakthrough vocals program! I just recently watched the video in the first section regarding vocal technique and I really like how you explain everything! It definitely helped me with breath control and taking deeper breaths and how to do that as well.

Here are a few insights shared in this course from ill Factor's past projects.
What I learned from working with Sia is the power of confidence. Being confident of who you are as an artist plays a big role in capturing the right vocal performance. Pitch issues can always be fixed later in the mix, but nothing can give a vocal the right attitude, and character to bring the project to life.
Working with the super talented Kelly Rowland I learned the importance of vocal arrangement, and how it plays a big part of taking the listener on a journey. All of the details that go into her vocals in each session makes a world of difference.
Jimmy Douglass (Grammy Award Mixing Engineer)
Jimmy Douglass is a legend in the music industry he has mixed so many artist that have shape the world of music we hear today. Being mentored by him has given me the ability to see the importance of balance when it comes to producing and mixing vocals. Using compression in a way that allows the vocal to both feel natural but present.
