Hi All!

Pretty self explanatory.

How's this vocal effect achieved on the word, "sound"



I know it's reverb but there's something else going on. Filtered? not sure if the reverb is possibly panned to the right slightly? and where exactly is it applied, on the "ound" of "sound"?

Thanks!

Thanks!

I'm not hearing much effect on the vocal itself, but there is another layer of sound in the back that's shifting to the sides. To me it sounds like a distorted electric guitar string/chord that is kept in sustained resonance while the volume is turned up.

Yeah it's a nice sound that. Like a buzzy bassy sound. So you think it's a guitar string pluck? not sure exactly what you mean by sustained resonance?

Vocal - well reverb obviously but does it have pre-delay as it sounds like it comes in a bit late and gets louder? gets louder suggests maybe the dry / wet is turned up quite a lot?

EDIT - I think it's the violin or cello string that comes in.

EDIT - Sustained resonation of the string?

By sustained resonance I'm thinking of a technique that guitar players sometimes use. You hit a string or chord and place your guitar in front of the amp so the sound waves excite the strings due to resonance, thus sustaining the sound.

Can't find anything online or You Tube searching under sustained resonance on guitar. Can you find me any examples?

While I think you could have tried a little harder to get google to spit out something on this topic, I'll throw you this bone here: https://www.musicradar.com/how-to/how-t ... p-feedback

This should give you some idea on what to search for to dive in deeper. 🤓
