I have been working on a project of mine that I think could use a crowd effect. By that I mean I want parts of the song to sound like there is a crowd in the background calling back on certain ques. I have tried two different approaches, and they sound, well... fake. first, I set up a mic and had a small group sing/shout. I doubled some of the tracks and tried throwing different eqs and reverb on them, but it wasn't what I wanted. my second approach was to mic one person at a time and double the tracks, but before long I had a ton of tracks, and not a very good sound. Are there any other teqnices I could use? Any advice from micing to mixing would be helpful. Thanks.
