effect commonly used in hip hop on vocals..?

Discussion in 'Vocals' started by pfactionbrett, Apr 29, 2009.

  1. I'm trying to figure out what it's called, and how it's achieved, but it's hard to describe or give an example as I dont usually listen to this style of music but I may be able to find one if all else fails.

    It's usually used in rap and hip hop on vocals and it makes them sound all de-tuned wierd and synthed. Anyone?

    You need them to be more out of tune?

    You could also play with a flanger and a vocoder and see what you come up with. Also try the ping pong delay.
  7. Man, when did this type of processing become popular? At least try to hide the pitch correction.

    "when did this type of processing become popular?"

    Do you own a radio?

    Try turning it on in the last few years.
  9. That's funny, because i don't own a radio. If i had one and that stuff came on i would probably get rid of it. But then again the music i listen to probably gives people head aches as well. :lol:

    What gives people headaches faster:

    Autotuned limited crap on the iPod at 100dB, or
    Your music?

    i use cubase, and in cubase there is a pitch shift process. it basically drops the vocals down or brings them up in whatever increment youd like (eg. half step, whole step, octave). i'm pretty sure im safe in assuming your talking about the "mike jones" BS thats out right now, where everything is dropped so low it sounds like satan.

    hope this helps.

    I split for almost a year and boom, a current topic linking back to another discussion we've had about Autotune.

    How funny is that?

    I've been well, how's the audio at your place? Any major buzzing lately?

    Oh just me buzzing around.
    I actually fixed some buzzing on the deaf-people-loop by slapping a DI on the feed.

    We had a youth event up at a local school, a recording engineer who goes to another church showed up (we provided the PA) and I learned a helluva lot from his EQing.

    Amazing how when you think you have it sussed, someone pushes the 12K and you realise exactly what you've been missing.
