Can Someone help me identify this vocal effect (gnarls barkley)

YouTube - Gnarls Barkley - Necromancer

I know the quality is terrible but I would really love to know what the vocal effect used for this song is. If you know what it is could you also please nudge me in the direction as to where I could find it

Thanks everyone

sound is terrible, but one thing is obvious... bandpass filter...

not too many highs removed, but most of the lows rolled off

also sounds pushed back a bit, so i'm guessing there's some verb... possibly little or no predelay... sound quality is too low to judge anything else

i think what you are after is the bandpass, so try this:

put two filters on your voice, a high pass filter, and a low pass filter.

start with low resonance settings if they have them, and a cutoff frequency for the lowpass in the 6k-10k range, and a cutoff frequency for the highpass in the 200-600hz range.

then, move them around till it sounds right to you

... may also be a rhythmic delay on there, and some compression to get it so flat... but again... audio quality
