The Swedish company Xponaut has released the fourth version of the Voice Tweaker pitch bend plugin. The analysis and synthesis engine has been completely rewritten, the plugin is less resource-intensive than the previous version.
Voice Tweaker lets you change the pitch of a mono audio signal (voice or instrument) up to two octaves up or down. At the same time, the timbre of the original signal is preserved as much as possible: you will not receive any Buratin or monstrous voices (unless, of course, this is your goal), since the transposition and formant component occurs along with the audio signal.
Voice Tweaker is a harmonic pitch transposition tool designed for monophonic signals such as speech, vocals, and lead sounds. Independent transposition of pitch and formant is possible.
There is also a MIDI-controlled pitch correction section and an extended modulation matrix.
There are three main modes of operation of the effect:
– Mode of automatic correction on a given scale (AutoTune)
– Mode of binding to control via MIDI (from the keyboard or MIDI track)
– Mode using the modulation matrix (also via MIDI)
There is also a syncronized envelope generator for vibrato, overall pitch and formant control.
Please note that the twists displayed on the front panel are far from all! The most important thing, precisely for the quality of processing, is hidden under the “Options” button, where it is worth looking into. These options are not static, i.e. after the next plugin connection, they will return to their default state, BUT! – they are saved with the project and in * .fxp files.
Information from one music forum:
Recently on the forum there was a talk about the processing of vocals with a once fashionable effect, known for a very long time, but received widespread distribution only after the release of the album by grandmother Cher “Believe”. In principle, this processing can be done in different ways. The simplest of them is to use a harmony controlled via MIDI, but this is more suitable for hardware conditions and is very easy to perform. Another option is to use Autotune silently. Here you have to work much more painstakingly on the vocals before processing it in order to get the characteristic effect and in those places where it is appropriate. The third option is to use a vocoder. Here you can get interesting variants of timbre coloring and a very unusual sound, limited only by imagination. Of course, there are also other derivative options, for example, use Autotune, but with MIDI control, in fact, we come to a harmonizer in a sense, since these devices are very similar in operation and are usually often combined in one product.
