How to Create a Vocal Stutter Effect

How to Record Drums Author: David Hogan
Published: June 2011

Lets gear up.  Today we learn how to create the vox stutter effect that is so prevalent in modern pop and dance music.

I will be working in Logic but you can accomplish this effect in any decent DAW.

 

Here is a snippet of the song I am going to apply this effect to.

Step 1

Decide where you want the stutter to happen.  Look for open spaces and breaks in your song.

In this particular case, I chose the beginning and middle of the chorus and chose to stutter the word “Here” in the phrase “Here We Go Now”.

Step 2

Chop up and arrange the repeated sample.  You can arrange the sample in any rhythmical pattern you want.  As you can see I went from 8th’s to 16th’s to 32nd’s.

Step 3

Add small fades on the beginning and end of each sample to prevent popping or clicking.

Step 4

Automate the volume to increase over the course of the stutter effect.  This will give it a rising sensation, which is great especially if you are using a vocal stutter on a breakdown that is building over time.

Step 5

Give the effect some flare by adding some movement.  Load up the tremolo plug in Logic’s Modulation section.  Experiment to achieve the desired result.  You can create a slow-building pan effect or a faster bouncing off the walls type of feel to anything else in between.

Step 6

Polish the effect off with some chorus and stereo delay. 

Here is the raw effect with no backing music.

Enjoy the fruits of your labour.

This effect is simple and won’t make or break any song but it’s this consistent attention to detail in the right places that can truly make a song stand out.
