Hi all, I’m trying to recreate a human sounding voice sound like an ohh or ahh sound, like from the main track for the movie Lost River, I want to recreate the whole song and upload for others to listen to. You can here the synth voice from the very beginning up till the fat synth bass begins.
Best way to get that vocal vowel is with a formant filter. You can take any waveform you want, run it through it through the formant filter and tweak it’s cutoff. Or the filter might have a dedicated control for choosing/shaping the vowel, depending on the synth you use.
If you don’t have access to a formant filter, cranking a low pass filter’s resonance, and carefully setting the cutoff, can also push out a vowel-esque character in the filter.
This track’s patch also has a noise layer. It sounds like it’s a separate patch, running through its own filter. It’s really bright on the first two notes, but gets shaped more like the pad on the 3rd note, and adds a breathiness that makes that 3rd note sound even more human.
