But having said that, you can come pretty close if you get a few different software pitch fx like melodyne, autotune or just vst pitchers like 'pitchwheel'.
So you have a few different sounding algorithms too choose from. And actually try them out each time . .
It's long though and annoying to work with.
Good idea to eq or filter before you pitch it down, ofcourse.
I highly doubt he downtuned it as much as an octave... me myself when I want vocals to sound unnatural or I want some vocal chops (this actually pretty handy for chops) I find an acapella, samples etc. in different key than my track and then just tune it to fit in the key of track.... which means If you have acapella in the key of your instrumental and you want it to be pitched down, 12 semitones is a lot and mostly it won't sound good, so try to record/use acapella in different scale and then just pitch it up/down by for example 4 semitones... hope you understand and you find it helpfulJamesHanvey wrote:Been using ableton's transposition. Makes it sound way too muddy. Is there a better way? Looking for something like what's used in this (25 secs onwards)
I think op is after how to have a deep voice in the track
like you know how asap rocky or madlib does it
an octave is like real deep you might need like shit hubb mentioned like maybe some amon tobin pc shit or what its called there was a pc made for granular and all this shit
or maybe a real good sorce like wav or high mp3 clean acapella
i loaded the tune into ableton and pitched it up 12 semitones and if thats the real voice of the singer lol hes a chipmunk
it doesn't have the best algorithm or anything but it has a diff time editing features ( ?)
it sounds different from timestretching but it's cool to have that in combination with other pitch progs
I like to have a few differently 'stretched' versions of the same accapella or vocals and then instead of automating, just cut out different bits from each. For example cut the tail of a sound from the long version and 'glue' it to the short version.
oh and another vocal tip. If you have a nice pitched down vox and it's slightly unintelligable or unpronounced, you can take a version of the original un-pitched v and high pass very drastically so there's only the sybillance or the sound of the consonants left and then fade that in on a seperate track. it helps mostly with hiss sounds but it can help out a lot tbh..
