Distortion – not just for guitars!

If you’re like me, you are always looking for a new little processing trick for your station’s Image Voice.  One of my favorites is distortion.  There are quite a few plug-ins, some of which come free with Pro Tools, that will do the job nicely.  Using distortion gives a gravely and noisy texture that helps the voice cut through – especially over heavily produced music beds and custom song brandings.  The mp3 sample provided uses the AIR distortion plug-in.  First is the mixout of just the vocal and then the fully produced branding.  I love the “Total Distortion” setting and I adjust the mix accordingly.  There is also a little reverb and flange on my voice in this sample.  I even ran the artist ID through the same set of plug-ins including distortion.  Give it a shot – experiment with it.  I also like using distortion after a reverb or slap delay – it can create a really cool sound. Happy Distortion! Never thought I’d say that as an audio quality freak!
