I loaded a 10 second segment of brown noise. What I want is just the peaks of the noise to force themselves through like in an airliner radio several miles out. There doesn’t seem to be any setting of Noise Gate that will do that, but it should. I should be able to make all the noise below, say, -12 (most of it) to drop to zero with just the 0 to -12 peaks remaining.
There’s some other tricks to get that sound, but the rest kind of depend on that working.
It does seem to be more difficult than made out, i also think it depends on what you use to record perhaps. All the youtube videos make it look easy. When they change the equalization, there sound gets bigger, mine gets smaller, yet i follow exactly what they do.
Maybe I could try a sort of distorted megaphone effect? If anyone knows how?
Theres a song somewhere that has the vocal effect im after, i just cant remember what song it is. Once ive remembered ill post the link so you guys can advise further. Its not vinyl, I just cant explain the sound.
