How to get amazing vocal sound synth?

Or is it samples? Then they change pitch?

[Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]


I love the vocal ah oh sounds in this song and similar sounds in other songs.

I dont think they are produced by any vst are they? In nexus i cant get it with presets for voice settings.

So im guessing its samples?

Then what they apply delay and change the pitch of sample so as to make it like different notes?

Or is there a vst that produces such sounds if so which?

cheers

Pretty much any synth. Vibrato (sineLFO on pitch). Dual peak EQ (or some formant filter). Pitchbend. Delay and/or reverb.

edit: Duh! If you had only been specific.
Yeah, it's just cut up female vocals.

Re: How to get amazing vocal sound synth?

Pretty sure the sounds you mean are cut up female vocals. No words just bits made into the riff.

Like at 2:05 and onwards

So its a cut up vocal sample? Not made on a synthesiser? but a .wav file kinda thing..they manipulate

BUt how do they make melody? they change pitch of the cut? Or thats just the melody after cutting the phrase or whatever. You think they get live singer to sing something then cut it up or what?

How can i replicate these sounds as a bedroom producer is the question though

Re: How to get amazing vocal sound synth?

At the point in the song you mentioned it's just chopped up vocals as Focalized said. And you make the melody the say way you would with any other sample or instrument, I'm not sure what you're finding difficult to understand about it.

Im not sure how this works in the DAW Fruity loops for example? Bare in mind im new.

So chopped up vocal= a sample file eg mp3? wav?

You then copy paste the sample and change the pitch for the melody?

Or somehow u can make the sample play through the piano roll? so u input the melody on the piano roll?

Re: How to get amazing vocal sound synth?

There's more than one way to do things like that.

I haven't used FL in a long time and I know it's more extensive now. The basic way in most DAWs is to simply have a vocal recording (.wav, etc) and cut it into the parts you want forming a loop, riff, melody whatever. Visually in the DAW it's kind of like editing film if you get me. You'll have control over each segment of audio you cut and trim. Control over its position, volume, panning and envelope. Envelope meaning you can make a sustained sound short or long, or make it swell. Most DAWs should have these basic controls over each audio clip in the channel.

The more advanced way is with a sampler. Sampler VST for most of us. All these basic DAW functions plus much more depending on the sampler. Using a sampler adds the ease of being able to play a sampled sound over the keyboard (piano roll). With results depending on the sampler. You're basically able to take sound samples and use them as if they were an instrument. Results depend on the time you put into experimenting and knowing what does what.

I just took any old thing and tried to make it sound cool.

Re: How to get amazing vocal sound synth?

I think they were just chopped up and not played through a synth. It's just the same few samples over and over again.

You've got to learn how everything you plan to use works. From the ground up. Then it will be easy knowing why you need to use it.
