Several singers make use of this to tune their voice nicely and Post is not an exception, hence you will surely need to employ this in your music to sound like him.
This is when the plugin comes in and you begin this by recording your vocals and not straining yourself to sing.
Whatever tune or tone that emanates from your mouth, you let it roll along and put it to the right music when it’s time for editing.
After that, you should make 2 additional duplicates for your track and arrange them in an order that the 1st is on the right, the 2nd is on the left and the 3rd is in the center.
Ensure they are in the same group too and use the below settings to add effects to your music.
GSnap Auto-tune Settings:
- Key & Scale: The key & scale of your song
- Min Freq: 40Hz
- Max Freq: 2000Hz
- Gate: -80
- Speed: 1
- Snap To Selected Notes: Yes
- Threshold: 320
- Amount: 100%
- Attack: 1ms
- Release: 1ms
- Pitch Bend: 0 cents
- Vibrato: 0 cents
- Vib Speed: 0.1
- Calibrate: 440
When you have done this, add some EQ and it should be quick EQ so that you could use it to reduce the low-end frequencies you do not want and amplify the mid/highs to make it more clear and bright.
Make sure you add a compressor next and it should be one that is sufficient for pulling the vocals back at once.
Adding reverb to your music is one of the most vital features of attaining that New School vocal sound.
You can put in various reverbs to your original tracks (panned left and right) to make it sound better and a one-time figure I do use for this is a range of 2-2.5 seconds.
I reduce the compactness to 40% and increase the Dry/Wet from 25% to 35%.
To sum it all, you will need to put in a Delay.
In my field, I put in a simple delay so that the vocals can bounce slightly bounce forth and back between the left and right channels.
I also ensured it wasn’t intense enough to overpower the vocals it resonates over but still sufficiently loud to add worth to the track.
The above tips will guide you on your quest to sound like Post Malone when you are singing.
Though it will require patience and dedication, you will also have to pay good attention to the settings above and know when to adjust when it is necessary.
Still, you can achieve what you want if you are willing to pay the price. Enjoy the tips and get your target.
