    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    Where does everyone get all the weird vocal snippets? Specifically SebastiAn
    What i mean by vocal is like the voices chopped up and what not, but where did they even come from?

    just random music really. he used to just use music samples and leaves the vocals on them (resulting in choppy voice sounds just like early daft punk stuff) ... in the Embody and the new kavinsky track he had singers (kavinsky himself? but i'm guessing a pitched up mayer hawthorne ) sing giberish into a mic and distort it

    Try and find the lyrics to those songs .. its impossible .. cuz they are not real words :P

    basically, just slice up a sample into short stabs.

    mayer hawthorne didn't sing gibberish into a microphone, it's just one of those cases where people can't pick up the lyrics without a proper reading.

    I've learned and tried what he does. It takes a good ear and slicing to make something like SebastiAn sound good and catchy. But he mainly gets the acapella to a track he's going to remix or sample for his own track and just before the vocals on the acapella say a real word SebastiAn uses the short breath the artists who is singing makes on the acapella track. I hope this makes sense. I know there are other techniques, but this is the main one he uses.

    Also...you could try the Justice technique (it's how they wrote their basslines and melodies on Cross): write a melody that you like with some sort of basic instrument, like a simple synth patch or a piano or something. Then find samples (e.g. in the case of vocals, individual words or phrases) that match the different notes in the melody, and replace those notes with those parts. And, of course, don't be afraid to pitchshift samples to get them to fit.
