I saw a thread for general tips and tricks, but it’s mostly for utility/workflow. There’s a pdf floating around which also has a few sound design tips on it, but it leaves a bit to be desired.
So what are your go to tricks for vocal chops? Phaser fun? Resampling? Etc.
I take a sample and send an inv exp LFO to the rate (set it to ONE and have a pretty high speed, depth to taste) which makes it sound like a tape starting up.
Whenever I put chorus, flanger or phaser on a track I’ll send an LFO to the DEL so that it swooshes a bit more.
Here’s a fun one my friend showed me: Take the EQ and leave it as a PEQ. Take both gain knobs and turn them all the way down, and take both Q knobs and turn them all the way up or close to it. Now send one LFO to FREQ1 and one LFO to FREQ2 to get a real fun watery- phaser-like effect. You can of course vary the speed and shape of the LFOs for extra variation and weird swooshiness. Try this on a drum part or synth part… It sounds like Neon Indian
