There’s much more to producing vocals for EDM than just putting a singer in front of the mic. In this short video from the course Dance Music Sound Design 203: Vocals Advanced, Adam Pollard aka Multiplier lets you in on one of his trade secrets – using FM envelopes to add attack to vocal parts.
The secret here is to configure an ADSR filter envelope to apply modulation only to the very first part of the sample, which has the effect of adding bite and attack to it as it comes in, but leaves the rest of the sample unaffected.
