How to create digital sounding vocals?

Hello ...

I am wondering how sound engineers create digital sounding voices? Like the ones I hear in so many movies like Star Wars, I-Robot etc ... is that some sort of effects rack? pluggin? When Robots, machines, androids talk, they sound pretty cool.

I have always wondered how this is done ... it is not a typical vocoder ... certainly not a pluggin that I have ever heard?

Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated ...

Try a harmonizer with some feedback.

If you have Waves pluggins, Ultrapitch can do what you are looking for. It is a harmonizer as mentioned above.

Could also throw some vocoder plugs on it and see what effects you can get with that.

The waves morphoder can get some of the sounds you're talking about. I could sit and play with this plug in for hours, it's great.
