If you can actually get the singer back you can look for an "automatic double tracking" (ADT) effect or a chorus effect. ADT varies the time and phase to get a more realistic effect but it's still an "effect" and it's not the same as true double-tracking.

Right now f I duplicate it and put it on a new track it just sounds louder, not like two voices.
Right! mixing is done by summation and you are simply doubling the amplitude of each sample.


If you invert a copy an mix, you'll be subtracting (adding a negative) and you'll get dead silence.


If you actually double-track have the singer sing twice and record twice, that won't happen, and if you invert they will mix normally without "subtracting".
