DownPitching Vocals

Hello guys,

I've been cracking my head over this one. I've been listening to a song that pitches down its vocals, but when this happens the vocals sound crisp, nice, clear, and in your face. Guys, turning down the pitch knob doesn't achieve this effect. It's some kind of processing and parallel processing.

HOW THE FUCK are this guys doing THIS!??

Original Vocals at 1:06... downpitch at 2:16 ...

Re: DownPitching Vocals

as a rule of thumb are there any certain semitones that vocals sound good when pitched to? aside from up or down an entire octave of course

This. Plus doubletracking with counter-hardpanning and some 4/4 ducking.
