I’m a new user of n-Track and I’m really enjoying it. I want to record my voice and also record my voice as backup singers. Is there an effect or way to change my male voice to a female voice for use as backup singers? Or, if necessary, I can use a third–party effect like iZotope Nector, etc. I hope I can do it within n-Track. Does anyone know if this is possible?
You can use the Pitch Shift effect to do something similar, i.e. if you shift by a whole octave the voice will sound much higher pitched but still in tune.
n-Track doesn’t currently include a plugin to shift the formant of the voice without changing the pitch.
But n-Track been getting so many upgrades I would not be surprised to see something like this come up.
Singing an octave below and pitch shifting up by an octave will probably sound too unnatural.
The poor man’s way to do this with the builtin pitch shifter:
Make a scrap mix with everything pitched down by, say, 5 half steps. Then sing along, recording your normal voice. Then pitch that up by 5 half steps and mix it with the original. It will sound like someone with a higher voice.
You can repeat in the other direction, and by different amounts.
That’s actually pretty clever, thank you
Thanks, billm, that’s a great idea. I’ll give it a shot. Thanks again!
You can do it with IZotope, but if you want to really get good sound you probably need Melodyne. In IZotope the harmonized never really sounded right to me , not much clarity and to my ear more of an effect the vocals, but it works. Melodyne will take you voice and use it to create a true harmony by referencing the notes in the scale of the key you are using. The IZotope uses set intervals that may not always be a true harmony.
Thanks for the feedback. I’m sure you are correct. I have Melodyne, and I intend to start using it immediately. Thanks again!
