    Need to know how to do this effect...


    Hi guyz!
    I want to know, how artists do the "intro" effect right before their acapellas.
    In many songs you can see delayed echo or something like this right before the artists start the first word on acapella.

    Examples:
    _youtube.com/watch?v=cNrMKoqrt9U "CR-R-R-R-R", right before "Creepy Crawl" at the start.
    _youtube.com/watch?v=zM1HcN1GXsE "Ar-r-r-r-r", before "I Turned..." at the start.

    Is there any vst, that doing it, or some technique?

    Need your help guyz.

    Take the sound of which you want the pre-echo, flip it, so it plays backwards, apply a reverb to it. Flip it again, you should now have the effect you're looking for. Mix it with the original.

    Thanks, but what about lenght? How can I regulate it to be a slower/faster?

    And how this technique names?

    And how this technique names?

    Reverse echo or reverb, also known as backwards echo, is a sound effect created as the result of recording an echo or delayed signal of an audio recording whilst being played backwards. The original recording is then played forwards accompanied by the recording of the echo or delayed signal which is now in reverse.

    You can regulate while creating the effect. A short reverb gives a short reverse reverb. However, if you make it extremely long, you can edit it later on in the mix by fading it in manually.
    Though that would only work if the effect is on the first word. I have in the past used the effect on an entire clip, this we had to get right while creating the effect, once we reversed it again, it was all fixed. We could only mix it in louder or softer, but not change the reverb length.

    If you're looking for something a little more exotic and strange sounding, potentially anyway, try convolution reverb if you have access to it.

    You could get hold of, or create, a conventional acoustic response of a room, turn it backwards and apply it with the response delay having been given a negative value so that you hear the "turned backwards" echo before your source. Alternatively, generate a burst of white noise of the desired length, filter and mutilate to taste and then have it fade in. Use that as your impulse, again with the adjusted response delay so that you get the reversed build-up before the source. This method will give you a lot of control over how your intro sounds and could make it quite unique.

    Hope this made sense and helped.
