"Paparazzi" Lady Gaga Isolated Vocal

Here's another isolated vocal track from Lady Gaga. This time it's "Paparazzi," the fourth and final single from her debut album The Fame. The song was top 10 in most of the world, hitting #1 in Germany and the Czech Republic. Here are some things to listen for.

1) Gaga's vocal is very well recorded. It's very natural, not overly compressed and doesn't have a lot of sibilance.

2) The vocal on the verse of the song features a very short and delayed room reverb, which changes to a longer verb with a delay with more repeats in the chorus. This is a trick that you'll hear on many pop records, and one that we recently heard on Christina Aquilera's "Genie In A Bottle."

3) The treatment on the vocal on the bridge changes yet again as it's doubled and panned left and right. It also sounds like it's lightly chorused.
