Aegean Music updates Pitchproof harmonizer/pitch shifter to v1.1

Aegean Music Pitchproof

Aegean Music has released version 1.1 of Pitchproof, an audio plug-in that can shift the pitch of the input.

Among a few minor things, the new version has some new modes that are used with MIDI notes to modulate the pitch allowing users to get custom effects, including arpeggios and melodies.

Changes in Pitchproof v1.1

  • Fix: When loading presets knob positions are now correct.
  • Fix: Output volume was too loud, now it is very similar to whatever the input volume is.
  • Tips: You can see a tooltip for knobs telling you the value.
  • New Modes:
    • Keyboard-Modu Mode: The pitch is offset by the incoming MIDI note. Set pitch in the mid left menu to 0 to have C offset by 0, C# by 1 and so on. The bend wheel will work as well.
    • Keyboard-Force Mode: The pitch shift effect will try it’s best to match the MIDI note, or to just force it to the default if no note is pressed. It is preferable to use Keyboard-Modu Mode instead of this if possible since it is more reliable.

Pitchproof for Windows (VST) is available to download as freeware.

BOSS announces GP-10, GT-001, VE-2 & GT-100 version 2.0 update

BOSS has announced the GP-10 and GT-001 guitar processors, the VE-2 vocal harmonist, and a version 2.0 update of the GT-100 amp effects processor.

BOSS GP-10

GP-10: Guitar Processor

The new GP-10 puts a universe of amazing tones and tunings at your command, all in one compact processor that’s affordable and easy to use. With a Roland GK-compatible pickup on your guitar, the GP-10 lets you transform your sound into numerous classic electric and acoustic guitar types, basses, and even analog-modeled synths, including the legendary Roland GR-300. Not stopping there, you have access to instant altered tunings, including popular open tunings, 12-string tones, and “down” tunings that are essential for today’s ultra-heavy rock styles.

The versatile GP-10 also functions as a full-featured multi-effects processor for both GK and normal pickups, giving you a huge selection of COSM® amps and effects for live playing and studio recording. In addition, USB connectivity lets you capture GP-10 tones directly into your DAW, and you can even play computer-based soft synths from your axe with the GP-10’s guitar-to-MIDI convertor!

GT-001: Guitar Effects Processor

The GT-001 packs the acclaimed amps and effects of the flagship GT-100 Version 2.0 in a stylish desktop processor for your home studio or mobile rig. Its small size fits easily into any workspace, while the intuitive interface makes it simple to dial up world-class tones for recording and practice.

BOSS GT-001

In addition to the guitar input, an XLR mic input is included for capturing vocals or acoustic instruments, and the built-in USB audio/MIDI interface provides a direct connection for creating music with your favorite DAW.

Like the GT-100, the GT-001 offers powerful sound creation possibilities with dual amps and effects chains and flexible routing options. On top of that, a newly developed guitar-to-MIDI function lets you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer programs from a normal guitar input—no special pickup required! Available as a free download, the BOSS TONE STUDIO software provides a cool graphical interface for tweaking tones from your computer, plus access to BOSS TONE CENTRAL for free studio-ready patches and much more.

BOSS VE-2

VE-2: Vocal Harmonist

Combining sophisticated sound with simple operation, the VE-2 Vocal Harmonist delivers a complete effects solution for all singers, particularly those that perform with guitar. This portable, battery-powered stompbox has everything you need to create polished, studio-quality sounds everywhere you sing, from concert stages and street performances to practicing and having fun at home.

The VE-2 magically creates beautiful harmonized vocals that follow your singing, with pitch that automatically tracks the chords played on a connected guitar, a preset key, or a combination of the two. Using one of these three operation modes, it’s easy to create perfect real-time harmonies in any key, even if you have no experience with gear or music theory.

In addition to harmony, the VE-2 provides essential effects to enhance your voice, such as high-quality reverb/delay and an enhancer with real-time pitch correction. Also included is a USB audio function that allows you to connect to your computer and easily capture impressive VE-2 vocal sounds for music recordings, social media videos, and more.

GT-100: Amp Effects Processor

With the new GT-100 Version 2.0 update, BOSS’ flagship multi-effects processor is now even more powerful than before, adding a host of great new features to its already formidable arsenal.

BOSS GT-100

Two new amp types are included, along with cutting-edge MDP effects, an acoustic guitar simulator, and an improved rotary effect. A convenient Guitar-to-MIDI function is on board as well, letting you have fun with Guitar Friend Jam and other computer software using your normal guitar.

The GT-100’s USB audio capabilities have been expanded too, providing greater flexibility for re-amping applications. And with the BOSS TONE STUDIO software, you can now edit GT-100 patches from a friendly graphical interface on your computer.

Aegean Music releases Pitchproof free pitch shifter & harmonizer

Aegean Music has released Pitchproof, a free pitch shifter/harmonizer effect plug-in for Windows.

Aegean Music Pitchproof
Pitchproof shifts the pitch of the signal in a high-quality but old-school way.

Pitchproof is an audio plug-in that can shift the pitch of the input. The effect is meant to combine old styles of pitch shifting with the quality you expect from modern plug-ins.

The result is this pitch “pedal” simulation that has most of what is great about guitar harmonizer pedals, and still preserves the signal’s integrity.

Pitchproof features

  • Blend control for selecting fully shifted output, or the dry and wet signals mixed (a harmony).
  • Pitch select -12 to +12, and 6 harmonies (intelligent pitch shift effects).
  • Detune for a more natural effect.
  • Mono option (lower CPU usage), or stereo for stereo inputs.
  • Transient Fix.
  • Guitar tuner.

The plug-in is available to download as freeware for Windows (VST).

Fabrizio Poce releases J74 Progressive for Max for Live

Fabrizio Poce of June74 Software has released J74 Progressive, a toolset for chord progression making and harmonic editing in Ableton Live and Max for Live.

J74 Progressive
The Chord Progression Editor with chord progression matrix and arpeggio editor, Analyzer and Harmonizer tools.

While very well equipped for the actual performance, Ableton Live does not provide any specific harmonic editing capabilities: you cannot ask Live to suggest a chord, if your are building a progression or if you imported a clip you do not have a tool to find out which scale that clip is in. Actually you do not have any notion of chord or scale in your material while editing in Live MIDI editor.

The J74 Progressive toolset targets exactly these topics. Progressive is a sophisticated tool for harmonic editing. It is capable of producing high quality chord progressions and arpeggios directly as MIDI clips and provides tools for scale and chord detection as well as MIDI clip harmonization.

Progressive is available to purchase for $12 USD. Requires Ableton Live 9 or higher, with Max for Live.
