Hi, I'm Winston Widdes, DJ Evolved, broadcasting from Level 3 Records Studios here in San Diego, California for eHow.com, and today we're going to be talk about how to align vocals. How to align vocals is going to start off with visual wave forms and then go into using your ears well. So as you can see here I have two different vocal samples, both of the same audio, pretty similar, and I'm going to just kind of hone in here, I'm going to zoom into the point where I can see where that first wave starts and then I'm going to just line it up. If you have a quantize feature meaning your software can line up the beats for you, that's really going to help you lock it in. Some software that does that vocal line is software specifically for lining up vocals. Right now I'm using Ableton Live and you can see right there that locks it in pretty tight. I've got the quantize at a quarter beat so right there we have it locked in. We can go ahead and listen to that and just like that it's lined up and it sounds perfectly aligned. So that's how you can align vocals. So once again, Hi I'm Winston Widdes, DJ Evolved, broadcasting from Level 3 Records Studios here in San Diego, California for eHow.com and we've just finished talking about how to align vocals.
