Idk if I should just continue the last one or would that count as "bumping up the post", but anyway, I tried everything and I still can't vocals to be like this.


You hear on some parts adeles vocals go Distorted, but they're not bad distorted, it kinda sounds satisfying. like on 1:21 and 1:46. when I try to do that it kinda becomes earrape. I didn't really know what to search for in youtube and stuff, so as a last resort, dear illiens.

What the fuck do I do?

Video says unavailable... but lemme chuck some random suggestions out.

Parallel process the vocals and apply saturation/distortion to one and blend it.

You can also split your vocal frequencies and only saturate specific frequency bands.

You could also use a compressor that has a lot "character" and heavily compress and blend a duplicate vocal signal.

You could also do this excusively to like doubled or bg panned vocals to give it a wider/thicker sound.

Thanks, I'll try to try all that, maybe I should do all of them together to make it work!

the song is "Rumour has it" by Adele btw.

So yeah... that could be reamped/re-mic'd vocals. That could be adding distortion or such.

It could also be mic'd hot in the first place. Could be type of mic/hardware its ran through too.

You can try like amp-sims to subtle amounts. Could probably be done numerous ways, but definitely mimics some older techniques.
