How to get this 80s type of vocals?


How would you go about getting these vocals?

I hear the delay and reverb, but more specific than that. Can you hear a phaser in there too? or a chorus?

Would you use any specific plugins to give it this 80s vibe?

That really doesn't sound like anything that came out of the 80s, but as for the "phaser" idea. I think you should check out an Eventide Harmonizer.

Slapback is probably what's giving you the 80s impression? like Let's Dance. I don't hear a ton else effect wise, but the doubling might be what's making you hear other effects.

yes, it seems to be the slap delay along with the doubled vocals. I'm going to try a phaser too. Cheers!
