Hey everyone, trying to figure out what sound/voice effect is used here, and maybe even where I could find a way to reproduce this effect with a custom voice recording of my own(preferably free or cheaply)
hey thanks so much for the replies, ive managed to do those first four you suggested, am having difficulty with the vocoding, filtered noise, and reverb. my reverb effect is gverb. unsure what settings get this voice to sound abit more like the sample2. im trying to use this voice for a ghostly school project voice over, ideally id like it to layer the original voice similar to the original sample, although im sure thats as simple as laying the new track over the original and maybe a half a second behind it.
oh also, i noticed what you said in the other thread about reversing then doing the reverb then re-reversing. where would i implement the reverse and the unreverse in this particular series of steps to achieve the similar voice?
In your “sample 2” the child’s voice and the demonic derivative are synchronised , definitely not “half a second behind it”.
If you must have the demonic voice lagging behind, not more than 0.05 seconds would be my suggestion, otherwise the mixture will be incomprehensible.
If you want to play the original and demonic tracks together omit the step 2 above : the optional 5% slowdown.
“Reverse” is in the Audacity “Effects” Menu.,it flips the track back to front : like playing a vinyl record (ask your parents ) backwards.
To create the reverse reverb effect, reverse the track, apply reverb, then reverse it back the right way round. There is no “unreverse” just reverse the reversed.
I’ve found a way of improving the Demon voice. Make a copy of the Demon voice you’ve made using the above instructions to run simultaneously with the first. Then apply the equalization on this graph to the copy.
The resulting mixture then has plenty of high frequency content and sounds a lot better: clearer & scarier . A before after example is attached …
[Applying plenty of reverb only to the copy track with the high frequency content produces an ethereal effect]
If you use much “Early Reflection” you need to keep the room size quite big.
For smaller room size, reduce the “Early Reflection” a lot.
I always use GVerb on a copy of the track then mix the original (dry) signal with the duplicate track with reverb (wet).
Yes, I think the ANWIDA reverb is one of the best sounding free reverbs available but I don’t think that a Linux/Audacity friendly version is available. Nevertheless, GVerb can produce good results, but it takes a bit more work. (Other reverbs are available for Linux, but GVerb is about the most Audacity friendly one.)
