So I posted this on the image-line forum, but things are a bit slow over there... KVR, ON THE OTHER HAND--

"So here's the original sample from Ragga Bomb:
https://soundcloud.com/dant-10/skrillraggating/s-44CLx
And here's my attempt to recreate it using Harmor and some random ragga vocals I found:
https://soundcloud.com/dant-10/raggating/s-LrHKH
(obviously not as loud :3)
Ridiculous how something can sound so simple yet be so hard to recreate. All along I was thinking he vocoded the thing... anyways, improvements are welcome, if anyone would like the flp lmk. I think that the effect has something to do with manipulation of formants, and I think Skrillex might've used melodyne and some sort of distortion to get it. Not too sure though, anyone have any ideas?"

Copied and pasted from my post on the image-line forums. I'd really like to see someone else's take on this/any explanation. :tu:

Bit crushing.............................

Thats quite clearly been formant shifted and pitched down.i think the formants are actually higher than the pitch so it´s likely to be a Melodyne job and then probably processed after with multiband compression or something akin to bring out the that broken sounding quality in the top end.it may involve a bitcrusher but that is not responsible for the actual timbre of the voice,take

There´s no vocoder involved there as vocoding always without fail produces those tubby resonances which if you try to get rid of them sound extremely odd (gating for example)


Melodyne would be your best bet or nutone in FL which i honestly think is pretty crap in comparison and i´m an FL user :)

Yeah I used harmor to move the frequencies to C or whatever using the scale knob, then played with the formants. Skrillex does use melodyne, so that's probably it. I have seen some close imitations using ring mod though. Thanks.

I doubt it is ringmod or a variant because the sidebands produced by them would be extremely noticeable.

It might be able to approximate it but i'm fairly sure it´s not that

I didn´t think one of them was close to be honest.i own melodyne so i´ll have a play when i have some spare time on my hands.pretty sure it is just what i said though.pitching and formant shifting to bring out the character rather than it be in relation to the pitch

@julianLeker
the second one right?
I used Harmor in FL Studio. I got the vocal and resynhtesized it, make sure you have the "image/resynhtesis" setting under the ADV tab set to generic, works differently if you have it set to high precision for some reason. Back in the image tab set "scale" to the middle, which sort of funnels the harmonics of the entire waveform to C, makes the sound more monotone in a way. After that I remember messing with the formant mutation under the ENV tab, and then twiddling with the formant/mix knobs on the IMG tab. That plus distortion (I think I used softsat) should give you the sound. lmk if you want the flp :tu:
