Gated Vocals – using two channels together to make a harmony
In this article I want to show that you don’t have to fill each bar with 16th and 32nd notes, it is possible to use just a few notes. I use two separate vocal channels, each with its own gate channel. Each gate channel uses three and four 16th notes. When played together they make a harmonic motif.
The section of gated vocals used in this article is from an early version of what eventually became Adrift.
