“I came in and liked voice stuff that wasn’t working,” added Hater. “Then later he brought me in and said, ‘Hey, do you want to do that?’ It was like a … talk box thing and then I did that. And he didn’t let me come back because anyone can do that. … It’s like a machine that you can operate.”
He continued, “I’ve done a few things with the voice that just didn’t work, you know. … I’m not sure what Ben [Schwartz] did, but all I know is that that was my experience with it.”
