A Vocal Blender??

Is there anything that allows you to blend vocals together??, I mean that in the same sense as what an actual blender (kitchen utencil) does. If you put an apple, cookie, frosting, and a sausage in a blender, they'l get blended together evenly, meaning the new taste wont taste too much like one of it's indiviual ingriedients.

^^Is there anything that will do that with...let's say, 4 different sounding (tasting) vocal tracks??

I know I could layer them and whatnot, but I wanted to know is there any device out there that can mix/puree as good as an actual kitchen blender.

strange question, I know lol

It mostly has to do with microphone selection for vocals, eqing, compression and De-Esser. You have the power to blend the vocals in with these tools.

... + practice. But it really starts with selecting the right mic, eq, tracking.

I actually have one for review only, and it's a really good piece of gear, it blends everything in so well... You throw the tracks in and wham! Pure harmony shake!

try using an impulse reverb plugin, and use one of the vocals as impulse.. then feed a vocoder with one of them, to modulate another.. then you'll have vocals blended beyond all recognition.. perhaps not good sounding, but blended!

I do not recommend putting more than three vocalists in a blender at one time.
