Harmony vocals: tracking or effects
 
Do you create your harmony vocals by tracking live singers or by manipulation of a lead track? If the latter, what plugins/devices do you use?

Use your knowledge of and taste for harmony. You don't need plugins to do this.

Work it out on a piano, write it down, arrange it for the instruments (acoustic or electronic) that you are writing for and then perform and record.

Harmony comes in many styles, with techniques and resultant effects. Learn about counterpoint, modes and voicing.

Good luck! :)
