zplane development has announced an X-Mas offer for the LE edition of its vielklang instant harmony plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Four voiced choirs and brass sections in your DAW – just a mouse click away with vielklang Instant Harmony! vielklang Instant Harmony is a versatile vocal editing tool and harmony generator for musicians, songwriters and producers. It creates backing vocals and brass sections with up to four voices in a more musical way than traditional harmony processors. vielklang utilizes sophisticated voice-leading and harmony progression models to generate more natural and musical arrangements rather than producing plain parallel voicings. The piano-roll display allows complete control over every pitch of every voice.
vielklang LE features
Automatic generation of four-voiced choirs and brass sections.
Audio & MIDI harmonization.
Musical voicings by using voice-leading and harmony progression theory.
One-click modification of tempo, scale, and harmony.
Highest quality with the élastique pitch shifting engine.
The vielklang LE plugin is available to purchase for $49 USD / 39 EUR until December 31, 2012.
zplane.development has announced the launch of a free beta of its new sonicAPI.com online audio processing service.
sonicAPI.com offers an API for professional grade audio effects and high end music processing engines to web and app developers. For a long time, many of these technologies were only accessible through proprietary C++- interfaces as opposed to the easy-to-use HTTP interface sonicAPI.com provides.
The featured technologies include effects such as reverberation, time stretching and pitch shifting (changing the tempo and pitch independently) and analysis engines for the detection of tempo, loudness, and musical key. More technologies will be added continuously. They enable developers to build services for automatic audio database tagging, for creating mash-ups of songs with different tempo and key, and for applying state-of-the-art effects to their recordings.
“The increasing diversity of programming languages and platforms used for music processing results in increasing difficulties for developers to integrate our highly optimized C++ software development kits into their apps. Moving these technologies into the cloud and offering an easy, platform-independent interface speeds up the development cycle and allows our technologies to be used on any platform in any programming language”, says founder Alexander Lerch.
