Dalek Voice

Tech Specs

Category: Ableton Racks

Devices: EQ Eight Frequency Shifter

Version: Live 9.0

Format: Rack (.adg)

Type: Effect

Special Instructions

It is recommended to save the .adg file in the path 'User Library' > 'Presets' > 'Audio Effects' > 'Audio Effect Rack' > 'Formant' . Then it will also show up in the Factory Browser section under that folder as well (as per http://performodule.wordpress.com/2013/05/24/how-to-organize-user-plugin-presets-like-a-boss-in-ableton-9-using-the-hidden-architecture/)

Dalek Voice has just 3 macro knobs:

EXTERMINATE! – The main parameter; adds that classic Dalek rasp, from 0-100%wet.

Gate – Adds a bit of gating to clean up noisy source material if necessary (background hum from your mic, etc).

Single or Flanked – Determines whether facing a single Dalek or if surrounded.

Dalek Voice sounds best on mid-to-high-pitched single-voiced vocal material with a clear contour. For extra fun, set the source clip’s warp mode to “texture” and play with the “grain size” and “flux” parameters (Nifty Tip: in Live 9 you can even automate these). Of course as always feel free to experiment with adding fx to the dalek chain, either in sequence or parallel, for your own special craziness.
