Classic Kavinsky "Nightcall" Vocoder Sound from Drive Soundtrack | Ableton Live Tutorial


In this Ableton Tips video tutorial our instructor Max shows you how to make the vocoder from Kavinsky’s “Nightcall”. You can download today's full project template in the video description. The first thing we need to do is record our speech. We’ll add Wavetable or another synthesizer with a saw wave. Max uses the native ableton effect Vocoder on the vocal track in External mode, as well as Erosion and Cabinet and Pedal. Let’s get started with making retro futuristic sounds from the 80’s like Kavinsky - Nightcall!
