g200kg updates KeroVee & RoVee plugins

g200kg has updated its KeroVee pitch correction and RoVee voice changer plug-ins for Windows.

KeroVee is focused to so-called ‘Autotune effect’ or ‘T-Pain effect’, that is robotic but different from the vocoder. KeroVee can mix two independent transposed outputs of pitch-corrector and bypassed output.

RoVee is a VoiceChanger / formant tweaking plugin that works as a VST effect. That can convert voices to like male, female, toys or robotic. RoVee is a cut-down version of full featured pitch-correction plugin ‘KeroVee’.

Changes in KeroVee / RoVee

  • KeroVee 1.61: Fix squealing when low freq noise input.
  • KeroVee 1.60: Improved noise suppression.
  • KeroVee 1.60: Nuance parameter is added.
  • KeroVee 1.60: Optimized to SSE2. CPU consumption is improved.
  • RoVee 1.21: Fixed, value editing from keyboard is not functional.
  • RoVee 1.21: Fine adjustment of noise suppressing.
  • RoVee 1.20: Mis-octave noises are reduced by improved algorithm.

Both plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST) free of charge.

u-he releases Uhbik-G and Uhbik-P Rack Extensions

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 17, 2012 - comment 0 comments

u-he has announced two new Uhbik Rack Extensions for Propellerhead Reason.

Uhbik-G is a granular pitch-shifter / phase vocoder (via fast Fourier analysis) which delivers a wide range of dramatic contemporary effects.

u-he Uhbik-G

Effectively cuts audio material into snippets (‘grains’), then plays them back at a variable rate – even backwards. In the original tape devices, the radius of a rotating cylindrical tape-head determined grain size and the length of tape in contact with the cylinder determined the overlap between grains. But Uhbik-G is not bound by the physical limitations of rotating cylinders – you can make it huge or impossibly small!

Uhbik-P is a phaser effect, with up to 42 allpass filters in series delivering the deepest, richest phasing available.

u-he Uhbik-P

Bass frequencies can bypass the effect (‘bass sanctuary’) to ensure LF-stability. Feedback accentuates the comb filter effect, but unlike Uhbik-F the distance between peaks is kept fairly constant. As the signal is phase-shifted each time it is fed back, frequencies are created that were not present in the original signal – the main reason why Uhbik-P is also great for wild metallic effects!

Uhbik-G and Uhbik-P are available at the introductory price of $19 USD / 15 EUR each until January 31st, 2013 (regular $39 USD / 32 EUR).
