Creating a Creature: 3 Samples… 2 Tricks… 1 Warcry!

Creating A CreatureWhile editing the 9th floor drones recording, I realized they had a distinct  tonal element… nearly a vocal-like below and I wanted to use the sound as inspiration to quickly create a creature warcry.

– 1x Human vocal
– 1x Horse whine from The Recordists soundcloud Crazy Horse sample (thanks for hooking it up!)
– 1x Mechanical drone (stereo)

[Special note] Melodyne was used to pitch match the three elements. A trick I discovered that works well to help mesh multiple vocal sounds together. And a snapshot using iZotopes x-noise was taken from the vocal tracks and applied against the drone as a type of inverse equalization. Here are the samples from raw to final mix:

Do you have any tricks for creature vocal? Feel free to share in the comments!
