AudioThing has introduced The Orb – a formant filter plugin, for Mac & Windows, that simulates the characteristics of the human voice.
Featuring a set of three band pass filters, The Orb can transform any sound into a vowel-like formant-filtered sound. With three LFOs you can modulate the Vowel, the Emphasis/Resonance of the formants, and the Drift, which can shift up or down the frequencies of each formant.
You can also create your own set of vowels by changing name and frequency for each vowel/formant.
Pricing and Availability
The Orb is available for Mac & Windows with an intro price of US $39 (normally $49).
