Audio. Raven PMG specializes in all aspects of event production and execution,… View this post

    Someone once said: “A good music producer worries about the most important things” and a strong argument can be made that the most important things in pop music production are the vocals.

Besides, if you don’t like it, we’ll just claim you took it out of context.” Enjoy! 1) Why do vocal… View this post
