Just because you say it, doesn't make it a "fact".

You know, for a community of like-minded individuals, there sure is a lot of vitriol, gruffness, harshness, hostility, sternness, vehemence, discourteousness, iciness, impoliteness, incivility, nastiness, rudeness, sourness, surliness, ungraciousness, anger, animosity, gall, jaundice, malevolence, malice, rancor, scorn, spite, venom, vindictiveness, jealousy, pique, and resentment going on.

It was a "Square Wave" whatever that is. A Vocorder is the guitar/vocal thing that Joe Perry uses on 'Sweet Emotion' (as one example).


There might be different means to the same end, however, another one of my favorite artists used a similar effect on a song only a year before:

Since I'm tight with the band/producer, I asked the what effect was used and was told:

"It is an AutoTune. We never used it other than that but most modern music uses it all the time dialed back to make singers sing in tune. If u crank up the effect it gets that machine sound, e.g. That Cher song from years ago."

From the AutoTune wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto-Tune):

The earliest commercial use of Auto-Tune as a vocal effect in a popular song was Roy Vedas' Fragments Of Life in August 17th 1998 and later in Cher's "Believe" and Eiffel 65's "Blue (Da Ba Dee)".[11] The effect is not to be confused with a vocoder or the talk box,[12] devices referenced by producers of these songs when they were new to hide their use of Auto-Tune from music audiences. For example, in an early interview, the producers of "Believe" claimed they had used a DigiTech Talker FX pedal, in what Sound on Sound’s editors felt was an attempt to preserve a trade secret.[13] After the success of "Believe" the technique became known as the "Cher Effect".[14][15] Originally, Auto-Tune was designed to discreetly correct imprecise intonations, but Cher's producers used it to "exaggerate the artificiality of abrupt pitch correction." This technique soon became a widespread technique used in live performances and in pop recordings throughout the first ten years of the 21st century.[16]

That effect on Believe could be used in place of water boarding.
