@Izabela has recently been playing lots of Owl City and asking about the unique vocal effect that Adam Young uses as a signature on his tracks.
She especially gets excited about the break at 3:05 in Shooting Star:
Any thoughts on re-creating the Owl City vocal effect?
I’ll start by guessing there is:
- A big high-pass filter
- Plenty of compression
- Auto-tune in the mix but maybe as a separate track
- Double or triple vocal tracks
- Stutter and pitch bending on the break at 3:05
- The smallest amount of reverb (the vocals have a really clean sound)
