Best course I seen for VocalSynth2 and also good intro to use a Vocoder

I like the course plan proceed because he use a song example how fit the song to the music with a vocoder. The DAW is Abelton but is no problem for any user of DAW, ( I use Cubase) because it is all focus on VocalSynth2.

It’s all about the musicality.

This was a great tutorial by Sami, who explained everything in a slow, methodical, precise way. As well as showing all the various parameters of the software, he showed how to VocalSynth2 in an artistic way which made the tutorial more enjoyable and useful for a real world studio situation. Many thanks ????
