I'm using two Danelectro Black Liquorices and a Death Metal. (tho in practice it's more of a 'mouth-shape/humming to bass squarewave converter' than a vocal effect per se)

I use reverse reverb from my mixer. No idea how it differs from the other ones but it sounds nice to me. I am really annoyed by vocals pushed through tremolo/flanger/phaser whatever so I avoid them like plague itself.

generally reverb+delay and that's it.
Most of the time I prefer to keep voice quite natural, then bury it in the mix.

Tremolo? Who's using tremolo? It seems almost unheard in any music/noise? I guess some could confuse fast phaser, flanger or chorus to tremolo, but difference should be quite obvious?

I thin best for vocal manipulations would be something that is less linear more actively manipulated effects. I've been certainly "guilty" of very mathematical effects (thanks to use of digital multieffects what barely allow changes done live), but the more time passes, more distance towards that...

In live settings I've been running Gristleizer/Pro Co Rat/MXR Blue box with an assorted bit of reverb pedals I've been experimenting with. Basically just seeing what people are running. Debating on Roland's VT-3. Anybody purchased one yet?

yeah a bunch of tremelo and those other cliche fx too. I should have been more sarcastic and just gone for the all-encompassing 'dalek voice' :)

I got one, it's fun but I've yet to find a good use for it in an actual setup. Will be great for something I'm sure but then I like horrible vocoder/autotune sounds which probably don't fit a lot of people's sound here. :)

Cool! You'd probably find it useful then. It is a nice piece of gear tho kind of limited, they realllly should have given it midi in! Maybe someone will come up with a hack.

One nice thing about it is that there's no dropout/click at all when switching between different FX settings.

The VT-3 vocal processor just got useful – smoothed out, and with MIDI control. I’m not going to mince words: I hated the VT-3 when I first tried it. The presets were weird, and the sound quality was inconsistent because of erratic levels. It appears 1.1 fixes the sound quality issue, by gating noise and managing volume levels as you work with characters. And most importantly, it turns into something more of you might actually want to use, with external MIDI keyboard control of pitch (including on the vocoder). It happens to be fun to route the TR-8 into the VT-3, so this could be a lot of fun.

will give it a try today.
