How to Edit Vocal Stutters to the Beat in Pro Tools WinkSound.com Pro Tools: How to Edit Vocals Stutters to the Beat Justin@WinkSouns.com Hey what’s up guys this is Justin@WinkSound.com. In this Pro Tools Tutorial I’ll show you how to edit vocal stutters to match your beat. This is you follow the leading hip-hop guys like Chris and Little Wayne so let’s check it out. Alright so all I have here is a drum beat and I have a sample and I’m going to cut up that sample to get that you know kind of hesitated effect on it so I’ll just play the sample really quick. [Demo] And this is the drum beat, okay you get the idea. So what you want to do when you’re doing this kind of hesitated like chopped up kind of effect you want to work in grid mode and you want to work with a grid value of either 164th note or 132nd note so you can get very precise you know precise regions you know so you can find those words and syllables that you want to cut up so I’m just going to duplicate that I just highlighted the region and command D on the MAC to duplicate it and then I’m just going to zoom in a little bit with T and to do that you need to have the keyword focus enabled the AZ button over here to use R and T to zoom it out. So then you know which one of these just go in dig in there and you know find the words or the syllables that you want to use so I want you so I’m just going to you know find a good point on my grid with my cursor and then control B to make a cut so now I have you and “must” I want to isolate so find a good point and then control B to make a cut. And then “Find” so find strength I’m going to have separated control B again to make a cut so I have chopped it up the way I like it and then you could just clean it up you know shorten up the regions a little bit and then draw in some fades just to clean it up so you don’t get any clicks or pops going on. And then what you want to do you know is to find the rhythm that you want to get these words hitting on so I want all of them to like hit on the kick drums so what you got to do is find your kicks and you know arrange them so they hit exactly when the kick drum hits or a snare or you know or the hi-hats whatever you’re doing. I’m going to play the drums with this. So you hit when that kick drum hits and I’ll just duplicate it so it hits on all three of these kicks and I’ll just turn it up a little bit and I use the nudging a little bit to arrange it better. You know you get the idea like that and then you know if you have some timing issues with your sample you can go over and grab the TCE tool/Time Compression Expansion tool and then just go in there and turn up the region and make it faster or slower to fit the timing of your track. Now you got the idea there. So you know just it’s all about arranging at that point to see how you want it to fit within your track. So I have already done something here I have already arranged that with the rhythm with the drums so I’ll play it. So with those like little effects that I have here this right here this region here I just took “you” and I grabbed the audio sweep verify plugin which is on the pit shift verify and I did slow down and then I also did it as well for strength.
