Emma Denney on SoundBetter

Vocal tuning can have a huge impact on a track even when you think the recorded vocals sound awesome. I have experience in turning poor vocalists into great ones and great vocalists into polished ones. I gained my expertise as a Lead Vocal Editor on Disney feature films. Let me know if I can help you too!

VOCAL TUNING - Using industry standard pitch correction software (Melodyne), I will tune your vocal track so that it sounds as natural as possible. Depending on your needs, I can target only the areas that need tuning the most, apply light pitch correction across the whole track, or turn your vocalist into a perfect and polished one with every note.

VOCAL TIMING - Being in time with the music is everything! I will make sure your vocals are aligned correctly with the music, while still keeping the natural flow of the melody and lyrics. I can also adjust the timing and length of individual words and phrases using Melodyne software, fixing any areas where the vocal performance is too fast or slow.

VOCAL COMPING - I can help you organise and arrange your vocal takes into one simple track. I have a great ear for recording and vocal quality and I can choose the takes that are perfect and/or will work best with further tuning.

**I can work on vocals in any language**

When sending me a message, if possible please include a rough demo of the song in question with unedited vocals, or better yet - send the unedited vocal tracks separately, along with a music track without vocals. This will help me a lot in determining an accurate cost for the job.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    We had Emma help us with vocal timing. She went above and beyond to ensure we were 100% happy with the result. She showed us multiple versions and was always able to articulate what she was doing/what she thought about the mix quite clearly. Another great experience - excited to keep working with her!

    Emma did some vocal production for a song of mine and was very efficient, accurate and easy to work with! I particularly enjoyed these things about our collaborative process:
    - Clear and effortless communication
    - Good ear for what needs to be adjusted and what doesn't (for both tuning and timing of the vocals)
    - Fast turnaround

    Thanks Emma :)

Interview with Emma Denney

  1. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  2. A: To have them 100% completely happy with the end result, no matter how many changes they want me to make. Vocal production is a very subjective game.

  3. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  4. A: The moment when I sit back, listen through a track that I've just finished tuning, and smile at the difference I've just made to the song... it's so satisfying!

  5. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  6. A: My career in audio production started 7 years ago at Pinewood Studios in England. I worked primarily as a Sound Editor, while rising through the ranks to Senior Sound Editor, and finally to Editorial Operations Manager. With this company I specialised in dialogue and vocal editing in over 42 different languages, for major international feature films worldwide. Since leaving the company, I have been pursuing a freelance career using the skills I have honed, and building a client base up from scratch.

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: I am a singer myself, so I understand how the voice works and how it can sound its most natural. There are ways to approach auto-tuning that comes from understanding how a vocal take is performed, and the various elements involved such as natural vibrato, breaks in the voice and the importance of 'bridge notes' between phrases. I also bring care! I really really care about every single track I work on. I mean it.

  9. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  10. A: Vocal tuning and timing is my main specialty and is my professional background.
