Is any technology used to enhance the sound of the backup vocals in Twisted Measure's version of Sia's "Chandelier"? Are any particular effects or filters being used over the backup vocals? One of my friends suggested that auto tune was used, but I don't necessarily think that would be required to produce the sound.

  • Why the down vote? Eitherway, Ive modified the question slightly in case someone found it to be offensive. I do think it is a legit question to ask though. – br3nt Jun 13 '16 at 23:31

  • In my opinion it would be "cheating" to technologically alter an acapella recording unless that's the group's standard method. And there are apparently a number of groups that have (apparently) mastered creating digital-sounding effects with pure vocals. However probably only they and their producer know for certain. – Chris Sunami Jun 15 '16 at 16:54
