What is that vocal effect called?

Discussion in 'Vocals' started by RyanCacoph0ny, Aug 12, 2007.

  1. Its that effect where the voice seems to be manipulated to play a certain melody, its used alot in techno music, especially psy-trance and goa, the most popular example I can think of is the song "Im Blue" (Da ba dee da ba dye... etc), the voice also gets a more robotic feel to it.

    My first guess was a vocoder, but in my limited experience with vocoders, it seems that vocoders have too mellow a sound to them. If it is a vocoder, could I get a basic tutorial/setting on how to make it sound more sharp?

    If its needed, I can find some clips to upload somewhere

    The "Cher effect?"

    Antares Auto-tune.

    Hey, don't take my word for it, read this:
    Recording Cher




    If I hear that sound again it will be too soon,

    Ever tried just wikipedia to find it?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotic_voice_effects

    Doesn't say much but it's a start...

    Just look them up and you might find what your looking for... What you're talking about is the Auto-Tuner, like Space said.
