Somebody know if Freddie sang any songs using synthesisers to modify his vocals?
I remember that the first album "Queen" and the others has this maxim: " No Synthesisers!! "...

Sorry for my bad english!!
Thanks.

Well in terms of Fred's vocals I think a vocoder is used on Scandal.

Mostly the effects used were manual, Roy explained it sometime... Fred (or any other singer working with Roy) sang a demo of the line, then Roy added the effect (e.g. phasing), then the singer did the actual take with the effect on his headphones and reproduced it a million times better. Not always, but more often than not anyway.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Phasing is a technique invented by Steve Reich, in which two parts play the same but with slightly different speed at some points, causing them to superimpose diverging and converging.

Phasing is a cool effect.I got my own Phaser guitar pedal,and you can make quit weird "noise" with it.
