KQED will be posting all the episodes for Soundbreaking: Stories From The Cutting Edge Of Recorded Music as they become available online. Viewers will be able to watch them here until Nov. 28
In the third episode of Soundbreaking, we celebrate the human voice, the most powerful instrument of all. It also can be the most difficult to record, so a wide range of producers discuss their tricks for getting that perfect vocal track -- one that both sounds great and is full of emotion. Highlights include:
- Producer Paul Epworth talks about recording Adele’s hit “Rolling in the Deep”
- Amy Winehouse’s unique voice and how it was captured in the studio
- The use of Auto-tune and vocal manipulation by artists like Kanye West, Roger Troutman, and Cher
