Antares releases AVOX Evo and Harmony Engine Evo

Antares AVOX Evo

Antares has announced the availability of AVOX Evo and Harmony Engine Evo.

AVOX Evo is the newest generation of the Antares Vocal Toolkit.

Now featuring Antares’ seriously evolved Evo™ Voice Processing Technology, AVOX Evo combines ten state-of-the-art vocal processing modules to give you the power you need to create stunning vocal tracks in any musical style as well as design unique vocal effects for audio post-production applications.

New in AVOX Evo is the incorporation of Dr. Andy’s groundbreaking Evo™ Voice Processing technology. First seen (and heard) in Auto-Tune Evo, the result is an entirely new level of sonic performance. With faster, more accurate pitch detection, smoother, artifact-free pitch shifting, and seamless, natural-sounding (if you want it to be) throat modeling, AVOX Evo plug-ins just work better. Leaving you free to focus on creating your music.

Other additions include redesigned user interfaces for the original five AVOX plug-ins, five integrated channels of our unique CHOIR Vocal Multiplier in Harmony Engine Evo, high-quality pitch shifting in THROAT Evo, tempo-synced alienization rate in MUTATOR Evo, and more.
And at a new, lower MSRP, AVOX Evo matches its unbeatable creative power with truly unbeatable value.

AVOX Evo is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) for $499 USD. Upgrades are available for purchase and download by current registered AVOX, AVOX AT, AVOX 2, Auto-Tune Vocal Studio (Native or TDM), Harmony Engine, and Harmony Engine Evo owners.

And with the addition of 5 channels of Antares’ unique CHOIR Vocal Multiplier, you can create huge vocal ensembles out of a single vocal line.

With four independent harmony voices, a variety of powerful harmony generating modes, humanization features for natural sounding performances, and a flexible real-time preset system for harmony and vocal type, Harmony Engine Evo provides incredibly easy-to-use tools to quickly and easily produce virtually any vocal arrangement you can imagine.

Antares releases Auto-Tune EFX

Antares Auto-Tune EFX

Antares has released Auto-Tune EFX, the quickest, easiest, most affordable tool for real-time pitch correction and creating the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect (the T-Pain/Cher-style effect).

Powered by the same ground-breaking Evo™ Voice Processing Technology as Antares’ Auto-Tune Evo, the latest generation of the worldwide standard in professional pitch correction, Auto-Tune EFX makes Antares-quality pitch processing accessible to anyone engaged in computer-based audio recording.

Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX provides two different flavors of the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect as well as real-time pitch correction. Just select your desired effect type, set the key and scale of your track, and Auto-Tune EFX does the rest. For songs with complex chord progressions or modulations, you can optionally set up custom scales or use your host’s automation facility to allow the processing of virtually any vocal line.

Auto-Tune EFX features

  • Pitch Correction — Like Auto-Tune Evo, Auto-Tune EFX pitch correction works by continuously tracking the pitch of your vocal and comparing it to the notes in a (customizable) scale. The scale note closest to the input pitch is identified as the target note. If your vocal’s pitch exactly matches the target note, no correction is applied. If your vocal’s pitch varies from the target note, either sharp or flat, the output pitch is smoothly corrected to the target note.
  • Auto-Tune Vocal Effect — The Auto-Tune Vocal Effect is what is technically known as “pitch quantization.” Instead of allowing all of the small variations in pitch and the gradual transitions between notes that are a normal part of singing, the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect limits each note to an exact pitch, stripping out any variation, as well as forcing instantaneous transitions between notes.

Auto-Tune EFX is now available for PC and Mac (RTAS/VST/Audio Units, Universal Binaries) at Guitar Center for $129 USD. For a limited time, specially marked Auto-Tune EFX boxes at Guitar Center stores include a free iLok (a $39 value). Offer valid while supplies last.
