At the start of this song, there's a voice which sounds really awesome. How do I make this effect? And what is this effect called?

  • The percussive vocal(ish) sample that goes "ay" (kind of)? or the bbc radio promo voice? Commented Feb 16, 2016 at 22:56
  • I have no idea to which voice you are referring. Time please?

The proverbial 'radio' voice like the one in that song has its low frequencies removed. That is, run it through a high-pass filter. The break frequency is typically about several hundred Hz. Experiment for desired results.
