With a right set of effects you can turn practically anykind of sound to something incredibly interesting. FL Studio has a set of effects and tools to manipulate audio in a countless of different ways. One such tool is Pitcher. Pitcher is a real-time pitch-correction, manipulation & harmonization plugin that can correct and harmonize under MIDI control from a keyboard or the Piano roll.
If you don’t have the full version of Pitcher yet,
Image-Line has an outstanding deal: pay what you think it’s worth. It comes bundled with Newtone, so you can grab both for a SERIOUSLY very low price. EDIT: the deal isn’t available anymore.
Anyway, here’s an audio example of what kind of vocal effect I’m going to teach you:
And here’s with the effect:[audio:http://howtomakeelectronicmusic.com/wp-content/uploads/audio/Vocals-With-Effect.mp3]
I have also attached the FL Studio 10 project file which you can download and use freely. The original vocal clip I’m not allowed to share because it’s from a commercial sample library, but you can replace it with whatever sample material you have. Just remember to assign the sample to a Mixer Track 1, because that’s where the effects are.
Here’s the video:
