Mixing Multiple Vocalists

In this Waves Premium Masterclass, hip hop legend Young Guru (Jay Z, Beyoncé, The Carters) shares with you his signature vocal mixing techniques, and explains how you can master “the art of subtractive EQ.”

A modern hip hop, pop or R&B production often involves several vocalists on the same track. In Part 2 of his masterclass, Young Guru shows how he adjusts his signal chain to enhance each vocalist and make them gel, with one another and with the overall track.
