Need help replicating a specific vocal sound

Postby samcharacterr » Thu May 30, 2019 6:12 am

I am here and made a account because I have tried EVERYTHING to achieve this thick warm midrange with really soft highs "speaker knockerz/ nav" type of sound.

I have tried everything from splitting his vocal and mine into literally 76 bands and eq match his to mine then try to process each of the 76 bands differently to match his. That didn't work idk what to do. I cant find any accurate tutorials online and now I'm here. I know my bed room isn't the best but I feel that even if I had a good room I still wouldn't be in the ballpark because there seems to be this certain type of processing or mixing technique that was applied to his vocal I am hearing.

I know his voice is different too but his mid range seems to be really exaggerated but musical and the highs are a really soft and don't break up at all.

I am out of ideas. I tried everything. If any of you kind gentleman want to help me out and has a clue please take a listen to my raws below and message me or post.

I had a weird time in Surrey once, but that was a drummer's fault.

I suspect the OP's posts have been removed from GS, hence the missing links.

He asked a related question here earlier (with more links to GS which have also been removed), but didn't respond in that SOS thread to any of the suggestions or advice given:

Take my advice, I'm not using it.

Perhaps he meant 76 trombones.

Or 96 tears?
