vocal effect: distant old radio?
I'd like a portion of the vocal track in a song to sound like it's being sung through an old radio. It's an effect I've heard in plenty of pop songs before, but I have no idea what plugins or presets might achieve it.
I'm new to the whole recording thing, and haven't yet learned much of the terminology. If someone could give me a couple of keywords I could google, I'd much appreciate it.
More generally, does anyone have recommendations for good resources that give a conceptual overview of important plugins and their settings? Books or websites? Looking through some of the compressor (and reverb) plugins that come with Ardour, I'm surprised at how different the configuration options are for two plugins that do the same thing. Playing around with settings has not, so far, made for a useful self-education :)
