MAKING VOCAL CHOPS FRESH AGAIN
JUNE 30, 2018
A huge part of becoming a successful producer or artist is being able to take an idea that has been done a thousand times and make it unique and fresh again. If that sounds like a tall order, you might be overthinking things a bit.
Every time you write a chord progression, you're doing this very thing. Using the western scale, you cannot come up with a 100 % unique, never been done before chord progression. But what you can, and probably already do, is repackage it in a unique or at least interesting way.
This is exactly what Grey has done with their vocal chop sound. You can hear the type of chop I am referring to in a number of their chart topping tracks. It's muffled, it's raw sounding, it's distorted and it's just really cool.
This tutorial will show you how to create a Grey style vocal chop using a few plugins. It's important to realize that you don't have to use the exact same plugins as used in the video. Use what you have. More than likely, you will have some variation of each type of plugin seen in the video.
