There’s always one thing that makes or breaks the music you make...

The Vocals

A great beat can hook someone into your song, but if the vocals don’t sound right in the mix… it’s game over.

With so much new music being released every single day - your music only has so many chances to succeed.

But if your vocals sound like they’re in the same league as your favorite artists and bands on Spotify?

That’s when your music will be able to hook a listener in and get them coming back for more.

But if you’ve ever tried to produce vocals by yourself, you’ll know how tough it can be...

Most aspiring artists and producers don’t have the racks of expensive studio gear, and top-end microphones of a professional studio.

Chances are - they’re producing music by themselves in their home studio, with a budget microphone and a cheap audio interface!

And when music production software like Ableton, Logic Pro, or FL Studio can be hard to learn and use properly…

It’s no wonder why tons of musicians end up with vocals that sound tinny, pitchy and unprofessional.

But that doesn’t seem right.

After all… there’s been plenty of hit songs that have been recorded in home studios!

Billie Eilish’s number one debut album was produced entirely inside her family’s home, in her brother’s bedroom.

Lauv’s breakout single, “I Like Me Better” (with over 800 million streams) was recorded and produced entirely from a home studio.

Charlie Puth got Selena Gomez to sing into a wardrobe (?!) to record their hit single, “We Don’t Talk Anymore”.

Here’s the real truth - and this is what most music producers won’t tell you…

There’s nothing that’s really separating you from producing amazing vocals in your home studio.

You don’t need an expensive vintage tube microphone to get the warm sound you want on your vocal tracks.

After all, you can get a decent vocal recording with a microphone that costs less than a hundred bucks.

And you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on compressors, preamps and mixing equipment to get that polished, streaming-ready sound found on your favorite songs.

If you want to use the plugins that professional producers use on their vocal tracks, it’s not going to break your bank account either.

So what separates you from getting the pro-sounding vocals in your own tracks?

Here’s the answer…

Professional producers use a system to consistently produce professional vocals!

As someone who’s had the privilege of working with Grammy-winning producers and engineers such as Nate “Danja” Hills (Jay-Z, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake) and Jimmy Douglass (Kanye West, Snoop Dogg, Led Zeppelin), I’ve learned how to produce great vocals up close and personal.

I’d see how they’d set up an artist to have the best vocal performance possible…

And how they would produce and mix the raw recordings into something that was ready to be commercially released!

Sure, it wasn’t a written down, exact, step-by-step process.

But there were clear techniques, mindsets, and a focused approach to getting amazing vocals.

And when I started using those same principles and mindsets when I worked with artists such as Jason Derulo, Jessie J, Sia, and many others…

That’s when my vocal production skills went to the next level.

But as a Grammy-nominated producer with nearly 2 decades of experience in the music industry, I would always get asked by musicians I was mentoring:

“How can I produce professional vocals in my own home studio?”

So I started deconstructing what I had learned over my years of producing music…

And put it together into a step-by-step, easy-to-learn system on vocal production that anyone could use to discover how to produce amazing vocals, even with budget gear and equipment.

Who you're learning from today

I'm Ivan Corraliza, but in the music world I'm known as ill Factor.

I've been lucky to work with top artists such as Sia, Kygo, Justin Timberlake, Jessie J and many others.

As a Grammy-nominated producer, I created Beat Academy to teach musicians all over the world about music production and entering the music industry.

And I'm super excited to teach you my flagship vocal production system today...


Breakthrough Vocals is my all-comprehensive vocal production course that shows you how to produce professional vocals just like a real-world music producer…

Without any of the expensive gear needed to do so.

It consists of 6 in-depth video modules where I walk you through my entire vocal production process, and you can go through the entire course in a weekend.

Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll learn inside the course:

Module 1. Recording Essentials

Breakthrough Vocals starts with going over the basics of getting great vocal recordings.

  • What gain staging is and how it decides the quality of your vocal
  • How to best optimize your vocal performance 

Module 2. The Vocal Session

Once you’ve got the essentials sorted out, it’s time to start recording vocals, right?

Yes - but you need to set yourself up correctly so that your vocal session isn’t frustrating. Too many musicians spend half their time wrestling with their DAW, and only the other half making music.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • My best tricks to adding harmony to your vocal tracks

Module 3. Mixing

Once you’ve got your raw recordings, it’s time to start mixing them into your track!

But this is where so many things can go wrong. From using the wrong plugins to using too many of them, it’s important to know what you’re doing.

Otherwise, all your hard work from the start will go to waste.

In this module, I’ll teach you:

  • The essentials to taming the dynamic range of any vocal recording 
  • How to remove any background noise from your vocal tracks with one stock plugin
  • Finally understand compression and how to use it to get upfront, in-your-face vocals
  • How to train your ears to use EQ plugins like a professional producer
  • Tricks to using a de-esser for bright but clear vocals in your mix
  • How to shape the tone of your lead and background vocals in your productions

Module 4. Effects

Once you’ve mixed your vocals to sit right in your mix, that’s when you start adding effects to really sweeten them up. 

Plus, this is where you can let your voice as an artist or producer really shine.

In this module, you’ll discover:

  • How to use different types reverb and delay to give space and dimension to your vocals
  • My best tips to crafting your own unique vocal sound in your productions
  • How I apply effects on vocals in different genres such as hip hop and EDM


Module 5. Real-World Examples

There’s no point in me showing you how I produce vocals if I don’t show you examples of how I’ve actually produced them in actual, official releases!

And that’s what this module is all about.

In this module, I give you vocal production walkthroughs of tracks I’ve produced in rock, hip hop, pop, and more.

On top of that, I also show you how to produce vocal sounds of top artists today such as Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Post Malone, even in genres such as country and rock.

You’ll discover:

  • How I use a combination of overdrive and chorus plugins to give attitude and punch to a rock vocal
  • The plugin chain I used to turn a tired demo vocal into a clear, upfront vocal while maintaining its dreaminess
  • How you can create the chorus/choir effect in Billie Eilish’s “when the party’s over” with the stock plugins in your DAW
  • How to create Post Malone’s lush, autotuned, yet clean vocal sound 
  • How to recreate the intimate, emotional vocal feel of singer-songwriters such as Adele and Ed Sheeran
  • Tricks to getting that dry, upfront rap sound of artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Eminem 

Module 6. Extra Tips & Tricks

Finally, Breakthrough Vocals wraps up with a module on my extra tips and tricks on vocal production. 

You’ll see:

  • How I get professional vocals with a $2 secondhand microphone and a few stock plugins
  • How to mix vocals with an instrumental track (super useful if you’re recording your tracks over pre-made beats)
  • How to use a vocoder on your lead vocals like Taylor Swift and Zedd (and also get to hear a demo I did with Sia)
  • How you can use drum tracks to fix your vocal timing
  • How I comp vocals in Ableton Live: use this to get the best vocal comps in your productions, quick and easy
As you can see, Breakthrough Vocals will give you the system to start producing professional vocals with your current gear and software.

When I created Beat Academy, I did it to teach aspiring artists and producers all over the world how to produce professional music without having to break their bank accounts.

So with Breakthrough Vocals, it’s not going to be out of the price range of any aspiring musician out there.

And honestly, what you’re learning inside Breakthrough Vocals will save you endless hours of trying to figure it out by yourself.
