Here’s my best attempt so far.
I came up with this growl from analyzing a Getter growl from one of his sample packs, and trying to emulate the waveform in Ableton Operator. I did the usual post processing but this time I used Filterscape Q6 for the formant frequencies. I programmed 5 vowel formants into the plug in and modulated between them all. The key though is I “pitched” down all the formants by 50%. There are also three layers, the high layer with the high pass filter, the mid layer without the high pass filter, and the sub layer. Here are screenshots of my chain.
How could I improve on this sound? All constructive criticism is welcome. I think this sound is pretty cool, but i’m really trying to crack the Panda Eyes growl. Any insights to how he gets his growls so deep? I think most of it really is the “waveform”.
