In this tutorial video, BigJerr shows how you can create crazy vocal effects with iZotope’s Vocal Synth 2 plugin. Imagine a vocal FX unit from 100 years in the future and that pretty much sums up Vocal Synth. It’s changing the game with how to get really edgy, full, and synthetic sounding vocals.

You no longer need to record harmonies because Vocal Synth can make them from a single lead vocal. Want to sound like a talk box? No sweat. It’s packed with innovative FX modules for a fresh and futuristic sound. Here’s what we’ll cover in the video:

GUI Overview

BigJerr breezes over the plugin interface, showing you the main processing modules:

  1. Biovox: Adjust vocal components like formants, nasality & breaths.
  2. Vocoder: For that good old classic vocoded sound.
  3. Compuvox: Brings in some digital tools to make your VOX sound computerized.
  4. Talkbox: A talkbox sound without the hardware!
  5. Polyvox: Create harmonies out of thin air.

You also have 7 stompbox-style effects:

  1. Distort
  2. Filter
  3. Shred
  4. Transform
  5. Chorus
  6. Delay
  7. Ring Mod

Creating Backing Vocals

You get to see how MIDI mode can be used to create backing vocals from a single lead vocal. Using a vocal loop from a sample pack, BigJerr uses a MIDI track that matches his main chord progression and 808 bassline. This creates convincing harmonies, at the exact MIDI notes needed, that fill out the vocal group and compliment the lead.

Making a New Vocal Lead

Jer wanted to create a totally fresh vocal lead from scratch for the drop of his tune. Rather than basing it on the existing lead vocal, he used chopped up one shot vocals to make a loop for Vocal Synth to process.

He then used MIDI mode again, using a new MIDI track with some overlapping notes in semi-tone movements. By activating monophonic mode and using glide, he made an impressive trap-style lead that fit the track perfectly.

Sidechain Mode

Similar to a traditional vocoder, synths (or any audio for that matter) can be routed into the sidechain input in Vocal Synth. Jer uses his pad track with the main vocal in a carrier-modulator relationship to get that “talking synth” sound that follows the chord progression of the pad track.
