Antares has announced the release of Auto-Tune EFX 3, a real-time pitch correction and auto-tune vocal effect for Windows and Mac.
Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX 3 is the most affordable vocal production tool that provides Antares’ world-renowned real-time pitch correction. Users just set the key and scale of their track, adjust the Retune Speed for their desired effect, and Auto-Tune EFX 3 does the rest. For songs with complex chord progressions or modulations, they can optionally set up custom scales or use their host’s automation facility to allow the processing of virtually any vocal line.
New in Auto-Tune EFX 3 is a fully adjustable Retune Speed control that lets users fine tune the desired effect for their track, from subtle natural pitch correction to the full-blown Auto-Tune Vocal Effect.
Also new is Antares unique Humanize function that ensures that short notes are effectively corrected while sustained notes are allowed to preserve their subtle pitch variations for the most natural, realistic pitch correction possible.
Auto-Tune EFX 3′s Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation is a unique effect that adds intricate musical patterns to a vocal performance. Patterns are selected from a built-in (and expandable) library in a variety of styles and can be synced to the host’s tempo at various beat divisions. At any point in a vocal track, a user can simply click the Auto-Motion Trigger button to send their vocal on a melodic adventure. And since Auto-Tune EFX 3′s patterns are stored in standard MusicXML format, users can use any application that can open and edit MusicXML files to edit existing patterns and create entirely new patterns of their own.
Auto-Tune EFX 3 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for $129 USD. Upgrades from previous Auto-Tune EFX versions are also available.

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.
