Effects on Vocals???

Is there another accent effect other than the Telephone effect (cutting all the lows & highs essentially) for a song??? I am doubling the chorus so it can't be that either.
Thanks,
Cameron

It's almost the same effect as what you mentioned, but singing through a small practice amp can add some accent.

I'm assuming you mean double-tracking, but not simply duplicating a take. If you plan on keeping it really low volume and subtle, a more natural way to filter vocals is to sing through a cardboard tube (or 2 cups and a string--I need to try that one ). You can jump an octave too. If you want to accent words, don't sustain the vowels. If you want to accent and fatten tone, ONLY sing the vowel sounds. It all depends on how experimental you're willing to go.

Turning off reverb, delay etc. makes vocals jump out.
