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.

Gang vocals ..slapback 1/8 note ...verb with about 120 Ms pre delay ...and a phasing element added

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