really enjoy the sound of this track, there's a certain effect in a lot of his sounds and music that I'm trying to identify

the vocal in the beginning has it, the synth in the higher notes from 0:30 min also has it.

It sounds quite hollow and slightly metallic, and the sound feels less direct. But sits really interesting. Maybe someone can help out. Is it a certain reverb or a certain harmonizer ?

It sounds to me like various stereo delay treatments, ranging from flanging through to chorusing - mostly small delay times, offset per channel to give a widening effect.

Pick you favourite delay plugin and start experimenting with small delay times and see how far that gets you.

As you say it's also hollow. A lot of the bass has been removed from the vocal.

Short delay with inverted polarity will knock the low-end out like that.
