    Hey, first post here.

    I've only begun exploring the world of music production and sound design recently, initially experimenting with FL Studio on PC. However I've since moved over to Mac.
    I was messing around with some Melbourne Bounce sounds on FL and liked the vox effects I could get with Effector.
    Could anyone recommend a similar plug-in I could use with Logic?

    Thanks in advance!

    I know Logic but I don't know FL Studio.
    Could you post some audio examples of what kind of vox fx you're looking for?
    Thank you.

    Was quite hard to find a decent clip, but this tutorial I used before has a decent example.

    If you skip to 17:35 in the video you get a good idea of what I use it for

    Ah, got it.
    What you need is a vowel filter. I like these two:
    - SugarBytes WOW2
    - FabFilter Volcano 2 (this is one of the most flexible solutions)

    You can also use Logic's onboard EVOC20 vocoder to create such FX, or even the parametric EQ with modulated center frequencies of a typical vowel filter curve.
    The easiest way to achive the vowels you want, you would route the synth's output to EVOC20's carrier input, and a microphone to its modulator input.
    By speaking the vowel(s) you want, EVOC20 will filter the Synth's signal accordingly and you only have to record EVOC20's output to another track.
    Of course you could also do this by MIDI CC modulation, but it's a lot faster, easier and more precise to simply "speak out the vowels" and let EVOC20 do the work for you.
    By tweaking its parameters, you can achieve a large variety of FX.
