How to create haunting atmosperic vocals

Happy Halloween!!! I hope whatever project you’re working on does not turn into a giant pumpkin!

In the spirit of the occasion, here’s a really cool way to create some eerie haunting vocals.

  1. Send your vocals to a parallel track.
  2. Load up a virtual guitar amp plugin with a built in reverb. Almost any virtual amplifier plugin will do. If you’re looking for a free virtual amp, consider Voxengo Boogex or Lostin70’s Tone Deluxe. Both of which are Mac or Windows compatible.
  3. Set the volume or gain to zero and crank the reverb to 11.
  4. Blend the track back in with the dry signal to taste.
