Antares Audio Technologies has introduced Harmony EFX, a tool for generating up to five part vocal harmonies from a single vocal line.
Harmony EFX is a streamlined version of Antares’ Harmony Engine Evo Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator.
Key Harmony EFX features:
- Ev Voice Processing Technology for fast, accurate pitch detection; smooth, artifact-free pitch shifting; and seamless, natural-sounding (if you want it to be) throat modeling
- Four high-quality, formant-corrected harmony voices with independent pan settings
- Antares Throat Modeling technology that lets you process each harmony voice through a physical model of the human vocal tract
- A variety of innovative Harmony Control modes, from fully automatic to individual control of every note:
- Fixed or Scale Intervals: Simply set the key and harmony voice intervals and let Harmony EFX do the rest
- Chord Degrees or Chord Name: Define your harmony chord-by-chord, complete with inversions and variable vocal ranges
- Chord by MIDI: Define your harmony in real time via a MIDI controller or pre-recorded MIDI track
- MIDI Omni: Directly “play” the four harmony voices as if they were voices of a synth or sampler
- MIDI Channel: Use four separate MIDI channels for absolute control over each note of your vocal arrangement
- Spread and Register controls that allow you to quickly and intuitively set the pitch range and harmony style of your vocal arrangement
- Humanize functions that provide selectable amounts of variation to each harmony voice for realistic, natural sounding results
- A Harmony Preset matrix that lets you create up to 12 complete harmony settings and instantaneously recall them in real time or via automation
Harmony EFX will be available for RTAS (Mac and PC), VST (Mac and PC), and Audio Units in mid-October. As an introductory special, from its release in mid October through the end of November, Harmony EFX can be purchased for $49.00.
Note: Harmony EFX authorization requires a spawn of hell iLok USB smart key (sold separately) and the ability to access ilok.com (from any computer).
