So, I have recently got into a game called Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus, and I thought that the narration at the beginning was absolutely awesome. The video of that intro can be found here:
My question to anybody savvy in audio effects would be: how can I replicate the voice effect used in this narration on Audacity, if at all? I tried adding an echo and some delay, but I just can't get it quite right. If I could find a way to get an voice sample to 'buzz', like from bad speaker, I think that would get me closer. The 'wahwah' effect also seemed to add an interesting spin to it, when I did some experimenting.
I ended up using the paulstretch effect as advised and lowered the pitch a smidgen. It's not exactly the same, I feel like it needs to be a little more buzzy but I couldn't quite get it right with the paulstretch effect, so this is what I ended up with!

This sounds to me like it's both a regular pitch and a lowered pitch vocal (like you made with paulstretch) playing at the same time, then seriously compressed and saturated to give it that "buzz" you mentioned. Try adding your regular unpitched vocal over what you have and going from there!
I think it definitely improves things! I'll try messing with the compression tool later and see what happens, but I have absolutely no clue how to utilise saturation (it's not something in Audacity, as far as I can see?).
Saturation isn't super important, more of a final-touches thing. What's more important I think is the vocal tone going in, and the pitching. It sounds like you used a very breathy tone on the initial recording, but in the trailer the person speaking was loud, clear, and authoritative. Try recording with that tone and doing what you did again.
lala: Hey fellow Voice actors, does anyone know how to set up the UAD apollo twin MKII with reaper? im getting some distortion when recording, could it be something to do with a match in the sample rate? latency? Im new to producing my own work, thanks!
