I've tried multiple distortion/noise techniques, but still cannot reproduce a particular vocal distortion heard in Star Wars. Specifically, Episode IV. The effect in question can be heard on the line "We're passing through the magnetic field..." starting at 3:12 in the following video: http://youtu.be/hvc70ptopqw?t=3m12s
So - I guess my question is, given the default tools in Audacity, how would I go about getting something at least remotely close to that?
This effect is nothing elaborate, its just ring modulation.
Audacity doesnt come with such a tool, but I suggest you download this free plug-in to achieve the effect you want.
The zip has the plug in and instructions on how to install it so it works with audacity.
Report back, and tell me if this was helpful
