Sounds just like it's an octaver, or possibly him just singing it twice.

I think it's a vocoder (a synth (in this case a bassynth) that is driven by the voice). You can make a simular fx with the new microkorg or with software like Reason...

Thanks alot everybody, I'm glad I got this info cause it's the closet the thing I've heard to "vibrating" vocals, which is an effect I've been desiring (no homo).

it's simply two takes. the second, lower octave take, is being ouput through sends only, to a LPFiltered delay on a bus (send in "pre-(meter)" mode). the original (lower octave) track is muted (aka set to -inf dB). the send level is being automated to put an accent on certain words syllables.

as an alternative, you'd simply take the "high voice" take, put an octaver before the delay on the bus - and automate the send level. (that is, if you are too lazy to record it twice).

really, no rocket science involved.
