Megaphone

Does anybody know of a good plugin that emulates the megaphone vocal effect?

any eq plugin should do it. just make a midpass filter of sorts. you could then run it into a compressor (slam it) and run through some nice distortion.

i guess that i three plugins in one.

There are some very cool (and cheap!) plastic megaphones sold at the larger toy stores. They work much better than plug ins. ANother way we get this kind of sound is record the track or vox onto a small dictaphone type pocket digital recorder, using the onboard micro-mic. We then just play it back in front of a mic and record it. Sounds much much phatter and wilder than applying plugin stuff or running things through a distorted amp or amp farm kinda thing.

We've tried mega different ways of doing these kinda voc's, we like the toy megaphone and the pocket dictaphone best.


cheers,

KT
