How to make a vocal sound like someone pulled the plug from a dj mixer? It is kind of hard to explain in words however I have some clients that want a particular sound they want on a specific part of the song.  It sounds like if you were listening to a dj play your favorite song and the power went out and you here you music slow down.  But instead you hear this "errrrrr" Sound.  If anyone had any experience with this type of audio design technique please help.  Thank you.

    Sounds like you're looking for this: in the Pro Tools edit screen, select the section that you want to affect. Highlight the section on every track, then choose "Vari-fi" from the Audiosuite menu. It only has two options, you want "Slow down". Preview the effect to see if your selection is correct - then hit process.

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    • Thanks!!!! That was exactly what I was looking for.

    Check out Turntablist Pro by KVR.  It pretty much mimics all the basic features of a turntable.  Including just turning the power off.

    The best part is that it's FREE.
