Cheers fellers !
If anyone is interested, here's some notes on how the track was created:
I initially made a loop from Dave's recording and used that as the tempo in the DAW (FLStudio), I've not worked with a tempo of 110.2 before !. I used the vocoder FX section of Native Instruments 'Razor' synth (one of my faves), this created the vowel / formant sounds as well as the more traditional vocoded sounds. I also employed lots of spatial jiggery-pokery and time stretching as well.
I should perhaps say a few words about the Paul Stretch program. I think it's a brilliant program (I even paid the dev some money for it, years ago), but I find it's default setting is used in a lot of cases (hence the samey-ness of output). It's really quite deep and there's a lot of parameters to play with. It can sound pretty 'queasy' though, (in my view) and gives a particularly harsh sound with transients. I almost always use the 'stretch' as a starting point for further processing. By the way, any iOS users should check out 'Audiostretch' which is quite brill in a different way.
Anyway, cheers Dave !
