sup phil. since you are my lead music production/studio pundit, i figured i'd ask you first.
basically on lots of records, many newer rap songs and tons of other songs, you'll hear a verse and then just one word, usually the last one, gets repeated in tempo however many times. i assume they're not just turning on a delay pedal with trails just as the singer is about to sing that word and then turning it off right after the word is sung. i guess in this age it is all digital post-production where you can take a segment and apply repeats just to that.
but also like on pink floyd's comfortably numb the word 'hello' and a couple others seem to get the same treatment. in that case was it just sung repeatedly (it doesn't sound like it to me) or any ideas on how they managed that?
but then also for live versions of more current songs usually the word is repeated too through a delay. how do they pull this off live smoothly?
