How to create this vocal effect? 2012-08-30 12:57:32 Reply

REFERENCE

You can hear the effect throughout the track and it is becoming very popular in electro music. Just wondering how you'd go about creating this effect. I've tried pitching vocals up through time stretching and pitch modulation (melodyne/newtone type programs) and both create a "chipmunkish" effect. I'm really stuck here. Anyone got any clues???

Thanks

maybe start with vocals that are already naturally high pitched? maybe look into granular synthesis, those portamento slides sound pretty smooth.

Probably a forethought?
Like they did with vocoder?

A thought, it could be a synth vox sound.

Personally, I love experimenting with a vocoder on synthesizers. You basically make whatever sound you want, plug in the vocoder, and talk the synth out. There are many ways they could have gone about creating that effect... Possibly a vocoder... Possibly by adding effects on the recording in a program.

Get your voc samples and get the base sound the way you want. Now the primary effect is the pitch modulation which can be worked directly with automation. From there you do what you want. Do something crazy for best results, lol.
