I know how to do reverse reverb but I want to use it in a intro of a song and stretch the vocals out. I have a video that can show a good example of how I want to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Bkq8P-o__4&feature=related
It starts around :23. How do they stretch the vocal out so long and clean or could it be just a long recorded vocal to begin with.
the first one sounds like you could just use the Renoise timestretch-trick…
C401 – 0900
C401 – 09FF
now select the fx-column from 0900 till 09FF, and press Ctrl-i to interpolate. you can decide where the sample starts and ends (by adjusting the start and end 09xx values), and decide how long it should be. to get it backwards just add in b0-commands on the volume column. ofcourse add some reverb and stuff.
the second one just sounds like it has a chorus on it and some reverb and delay. not much special going on there i suppose, except for some parameter automation - shouldn’t be to complicated.
To stretch the vocals out you need to work with the vocal file. First you must find the part in the vocals you want to stretch. The final result will sound the best if you choose a clip that is about 1 seccond of the vocal sample. Copy this clip and add a long reverb to it (10-20 secconds) Sample the new clip, reverse it, and cut the last seccond of the clip. If you want, you can add a compressor to the new sample to make it even moore smooth.
The “streched vocals” in (1) aren’t streched vocals. That’s a crossfaded loop from a reverse reverb.
To get these, follow these steps:
reverse your vocal sample
put a reverb on the track and set it to dry/wet = 0/100
record the wet reverb from you reversed vocals only
reverse the recorded reverb sample
set your vocal sample back to its original direction (unreverse)
layer the vocal sample with the recorded reverb
adjust the layerings to play the reverb BEFORE the original vocal sample
The result will be a “poltergeist”-like voice effect. You can cut out the vocal reverb of any part you like, crossfade it and loop it to “fade in” vocals with it. This is gonna sound then like the effect in (1) - maybe you also have to put some chorus and stuff on it. Depends on personal taste.
Thanks a lot man. I will give that a try. Hey guys keep them coming and if you any of you would like to post an example or a xrns file of your trick out vocals feel free.
BTW anyone seen Keith303 latest song on youtube, his vocals sampled from Luther Vandross is sick.
Still, I am puzzled on how vocals on higher and lower octave can blend together at the same pace. Usually lower octave vocals are slower but in Keith303 and 2nd video I posted the both pitchs blend simultaneously.
