When it comes to achieving a nice choir effect in FL studio can be quite challenging, we have created this fl studio step-by-step tutorial on how to achieve a nice church style choir in FL Studio using Avox Choir by Antares and a few other free to use VST plugins which you guys will be able to download for free.
This is the outcome of this tutorial
A quick preview of what to expect from this tutorial.
Select any 1 vocal mixer effect channel where you will add all your effects for your church style choir effect. Then add “Avox Choir”, “Soundgoodizer”, “fruity reverb 2” and “Panagement 2” to the effects channel. Press “F9” on your keyboard as a shortcut to open channel effects in FL Studio and stack them in the order shown below, you can select any “insert number” you wish from “1” to “100” just keep a note of the number where you added the effects.
Set Avox Choir vibrato to “53“, pitch to “79” and Timing to “80“, also make sure you select “8 voices” at the top. This will give us this nice 8x vocal choir effect output.
Then go to Soundgoodizer and set this to “75% input” move the big round knob in the middle till it shows “red highlighted” input to around 75 as shown below, make sure you select mode “c” at the bottom very important for this effect to work correctly with the right tone. If you don’t like the tone you can feel free to change to any type of your preference.
Then when it comes to “fruity reverb 2” simply leave this as it is, the settings are perfect.
Let’s have a look at “panagement 2” free reverb vst plugins, download panagemnet 2 as you will need it for this tutorial, it’s an effect vst plugin you will use quite often for “reverb” once you learn how it works.
- Make sure your reverb is “turned on“
- Select “heaven” on the button preset
- Set the decay to “221%” input, as shown below.
- Set the “Wet” (reverb late mix) button to “half-way” which is 50% input.
- Set the room size to “104%“
- Set the “far” effect anything from 3.41% to 3.66% and set the “pan = 0“
Your panagement 2 settings should look similar to the reference image below. Check references for guide.
let’s record the vocals now
You’re ready to record your main vocal now on live input on the same channel with your stacked mixing effect. Simply set your recording input on the effects channel you have selected and start your recording, also record the same vocals at the same time in a clean effect channel.
- We have channel effect “10” as the main effect channel. (has 4 stacked effects we just made)
- We have also used channel “11” (which has no effects) at all and will be used as clean recording
- Set both recording tabs to “on” click on with your mouse and it will turn “red“, meaning it’s going to record vocal input from these mixer channels into your playlist.
- On both mixer effect channels “10” and “11” select your mix input we have input at “in 1” you will need to configure this mix input through your mixer hardware.
After you record your vocals, you should see similar results to what we have below (2 vocals recorded).
We hope this step-by-step guide will help you achieve a nice choir effect in fl studio.
