I am looking for ideas, ways, methods on transforming a singer's voice in Fmajor to a whispered voice using technology at our disposal...I am doing a remix on a trance song and I would love being to process the vocals up a bit. :geek:

Only thing I can think of is using a noise waveform as carrier through a vocoder.

This also belongs in either Help or Sound Production.

Partial answer: Get to know your software well, use some nice low pass filter, change levels, get dirty.

Use a time/pitch stretch process on it and add some noise and or distortion.

None of those things are actually going to do a convincing job of turning singing into whispering. Get someone with a vaguely similar sounding voice and record them whispering the words.

Logic's vocal transformer might get you close. If you crank the pitch up way high but leave formant intact it can start to get breathy.
Or I second the vocoder.
