i think a bandpass filter with some distortion would be pretty close

dist, filter, limiter, compression, possible little correction on 2nd vox, several ways to get there. keep fiddling with the knobs. :)

I have used this type effect for myself on a couple rock song breakdown sections. I doubled my vocal track then used my guitar effects rack and laid in some good old fashion fuzz. Then kept that track down a bit under my original vocal track, added some EQ and Verb. Just my ideas.

Thanks, Hollie. I'm trying to learn about this music stuff...

Did you end up happy with any of the tracks I sent? dave

Yes, I liked them and I am still fooling with that song and sound. It will be a long time in the making if it ever sees the light of day. Thanks again for your help.

N.P. Seems like there's several ways to get at it... (from the discussion)

Yeah and I think I'm glad about that. I want to experiment with my vocals as I am still quite new to this singing stuff.

What Hollie said - that seems reasonable. Like doing parallel processing .. bring the fuzz up slowly (into the normal vox) untill you get what you want .. right?

Sounds reasonable to me.

Exactly.. it's all about experimenting and playing around.

Well as has been mentioned, doubling the vocal and adding some drive will get ya there. Have you looked at Waves Reel ADT? It is designed to do just that.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

Duplicate the track, add compression, high pass and low pass to taste, add distortion of choice, add very short delay and blend that result back with original track. Add a little reverb to the end result. Lots of other ways to do this effect.

Easiest way, post that I need someone like Dogbizkits kits to work on it?

I don't hear any ADT (Auto Double Tracking) at all. There is a second singer. And, the vocals are double-tracked in spots, but I think they're duplicate takes, not a delay effect. I think Puzzlevortex got it in the first response. Just sounds like the highs and lows have been cut (not quite band-pass, which would be too limited, IMO) using LPF & HPF, then running through heavy saturation (distortion). I don't hear the clean mixed back in either, so I don't think this is parallel processing which you'd use to add back in the dynamics or presence of the clean recording. I don't hear any of that. Of course, it's compressed. You don't put out a record with uncompressed vocals in this or any popular genre. That's what I hear at least...
