I know the lead singer of the mars volta uses some voice effects. I know digitech has one but to me it's really expensive. Are there any cheaper ones?

Yeah, thats what i was thinking of, actually. I assume now since TMV is much larger they have a sounds guy who takes care of all the vocal effects for him.

Here's a trick. Sing a note and headbang your, er, head like you're getting spasms. Pretty cool effects there.

I've tried putting my voice through a compressor, then wah wah, then reverb, then un-wah wah-ing it, changing the speed (affecting both tempo and pitch), returning pitch to normal pitch, returning the tempo to original tempo, and amplifying.

I got a beautiful mash of distorted vocals. It sounded quite pretty actually.

There's always castration? Most effective vocal effect since the middle ages.

There's loads of free VST plug-ins you could use if you're just thinking about recording or don't mind lugging a laptop to gigs. From what I've heard (admittedly not much), the guy from the Mars Volta uses a lot of octaving and a little bit of overdrive on almost everything.

true, but you'll have to do it before the voice starts to go deeper
