I've been trying to figure out from what stems the vocal "artifact" you can hear in this song at the timestamp 1:57 youtu.be/Fwhgwv2Qq8Q On the word "free" in the phrase "your touch just sets me free."
You can hear like a "trembling" effect on the prolonged "ee" vowel. For some reason I really like the feel of that sound, it gives some depth and emotion to the voice. But is it intentional in your opinion? What kind of plug ins produce this kind of effect? Is it some artifact from autotuning, pitch shifting or similar? I'm very curious to know your take.
Bonus question: I've also been intrigued by the bridge in this song, at timestamp 1:57 youtu.be/B5NXiaYfD3I
The singer is clearly whispering the part, but it sounds as if there is a background voice, maybe even two. This creates a nice stereo effect and I think it's interesting, but I'm trying to tell the voices apart and figure out what they're doing. Are they just dubbing the main vocal or are they singing at a different tone?
