There's a really terrifying atmosphere to this track that I think is pretty incredible. If you don't mind me asking, how do you create the effects on your vocals? They're really great.

I love the train-like, mechanical atmosphere, it's so cool. I have such a soft spot for sounds like that!

You can release this one again for halloween... smile .

Your tags are amazing! I'd rather listen to a house that sounds like this than the endless riff-raff of reality TV that my girlfriend has going all the time...Really cool/creepy vibe here

Wow - thank you!  I will try to explain:

First of all I'm using garage band that hasn't been updated on a 2012 macbook air & singing through the laptop mic - for this it was cranked up all the way while i recorded but i backed off the laptop/mic a bit on some tracks & put it in my face for some of the weirder quiet stuff and just sang or talked really quiet.

There are 3 vocal tracks and a total of 7 tracks so there is a LOT of layering & only a few tracks have the same effects.

1 vocal track was an "acoustic guitar" effect called "swirling echos" - it's sort of the lead vocal & is the most clean without much background sound - this effect appears to have a flange, echo, and compression.

2 vocal track was an "acoustic guitar" effect called "shimmering chorus" that i think i messed with - this effect has a "hard limiter" on the compression, "stage chorus", and "deep space" reverb - this is the really floaty higher vocal part

3 track has an "intense whispering" effect on it - this is what sounds like the train - this effect is also on one of the 4 sample tracks (7 tracks total on this) - there is a "vocal basic" compression, default "amp stimulation", default "tremolo", default "speech enhancer",and a manual "peak limiter" - this is the track that has some of the background talking and triples the vocals being sung

the whole piece is mastered with a "hip-hop old vinyl" effect that adds  "quarter note" echo, "livingroom" reverb, "warm hip-hop" compression, and "manual" overdrive

Thanks for the explanation! Reading about the process was really fascinating. It's so cool you've been able to develop a unique sound through it all.

That is a horrifying room. The vocal pad you have that blends the notes of the main vocal to create an blending resonance is pretty cool.

wowowow has that pharmakon energy going on

Really cool process of how you got that vocal effect.  I like how the vocals pan out and harmonize with the bells.  This would easily fit into any horror film with the atmosphere it creates.  American Horror Story: Amtrak yikes
