So you got your song all mixed and you can’t wait to put it out, but the only problem is you have one swear word( or many) and radio won’t play it. Luckily there are many ways you can edit swear words to make the song still sound natural. The best time to do it is during the mix phase, so you can just edit the one vocal. On the video below I go over three different ways you can do it. The first is reversing, which is the most common. The second is taking it out, and the last is using a plugin called vari-fi that slows the word down. If your song is already mastered, and you can’t go back to the session files, you can always reverse the whole part where the swear word is, but this should be used as a last resort.
