How to autotune/vocode how to?

Hello from a newbie here! And have used the search function!

I heard this great song by a couple of producers from Europe. could someone tell me how to get the exact same sound on the male saying "bodystocking" about 6 seks into the track?



Sounds really cool.

Thanks

It's layered - one is the main vocal heavily autotuned, the other is sent through a vocoder. Sounds like one of the morphoder presets, "robotic" or something like that.

It's produced by The Pitchshifters from Denmark, and it's not a male saying it if I remember correctly - they just pitched her voice up and down, using a little formant editing as well, to get the effect. Keep in mind that even though it's heavily tuned, it IS a vocal, and vocals always depend a lot on performance as well as characteristics of the vocalists voice.

What you should do is try to sing back something similar and apply some octaves etc. using Auto-Tune, and see how close you can get with the voice you have available.

I can actually send one of the guys who did it a message and see what they say, will report back if he answers..

Logic´s vocal transformer with automated pitch would produce the same effect.

Just talked to Søren who did the vocals for this track, and it's done with Melodyne. They did some different tracks and force-created the harmonies with Melodyne-editing.

+1. I used to do the same thing with Waves Tune. You can actually have the singer/vocalist do the part in mono-tone and totally create the melody with Tune or Melodyne. One of my favorite vocal tricks for rappers who INSIST on sounding T-Pain-ish.

EDIT: here's an example of one I did using Waves Tune. Starting at the last verse (3:18) - the rapper didn't sing a single note. He rapped it just like he would've spit any other verse. He didn't like the way it turned out and asked me to do something really freaked out and that was the result. I used to hate this mix, but considering it was a rush job (they needed an edited version quick) I think it turned out pretty good.
