Psychedelic Vocal Chops Sequence | Sound Design Tips & Tricks

I’m excited to share with you a technique that I’ve been experimenting with lately - the creation of a psychedelic vocal chop sequence. This is a sound that you may have heard in some of my recent tracks, and it’s a technique that can add a lot of depth and interest to your productions.

Before we dive into the specifics, I want to note that this technique does require some knowledge of music production and the use of plugins. However, I’ve included a detailed video tutorial to guide you through the process. So, let’s get started!

To create the vocal chop sequence, I started with a simple vocal sample that I chopped up into smaller pieces using Groove Agent. I then loaded the Infected Mushrooms Manipulator, which allowed me to manipulate the pitch and formant of each sample independently. This is a great way to create unique vocal sounds that are not possible with conventional pitch-shifting techniques.

Next, I added some reverb and delay using Eventide Crystals, which gave the vocal chops a sense of space and dimension. This effect is crucial in creating a psychedelic atmosphere, as it adds a dream-like quality to the sound.

Finally, I added my secret weapon - DMG Audio PitchFunk. This plugin is a must-have for any producer looking to create complex, evolving soundscapes. It offers a wide range of pitch-shifting, modulation, and filtering options that can transform any sound into something truly unique. I used PitchFunk to further manipulate the pitch and formant of the vocal chops and to add some subtle modulation and filtering effects.

The end result is a complex, evolving sequence of psychedelic vocal chops that are perfect for adding interest and depth to any track. Whether you’re producing psytrance, techno, or any other genre of electronic music, this technique is a great way to push the boundaries of what’s possible with vocal samples.

In conclusion, I hope you found this tutorial helpful and inspiring. Remember, the key to creating unique and interesting sounds is experimentation and a willingness to try new things. So, don’t be afraid to get creative and push the limits of what’s possible with your music! And as always, keep producing and keep the psychedelic spirit alive.
