Admagination's "10 Minute Choir" actually takes about 30 minutes...truth be told! Many times we've needed to add the big choir sound to jingles, live production tracks and original songs. Needless to say, we don't have the budget or the room AND we need it yesterday! This technique uses only 1 female and 1 male vocalist!
SCROLL DOWN for diagrams & score of our technique, and to watch our short, fun video demo!
