AudioThing has launched The Orb, a formant filter effect plugin that simulates the characteristics of the human voice.

AudioThing The Orb

Featuring a set of three band pass filters, The Orb can transform any sound into a vowel-like formant-filtered sound.

With the three LFOs you can modulate the Vowel, the Emphasis/Resonance of the formants, and the Drift, which can shift up or down the frequencies of each formant.

You can also create your own set of vowels by changing name and frequency for each vowel/formant.

The Orb features

  • Three Band Pass Filters (ZDF design)
  • Vowel Sets: Male, Female, Child and Custom
  • 3 LFOs (destinations: Vowel, Emphasis and Drift)
  • Lightweight on CPU
  • Preset system with randomizer

The Orb for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available from Plugin Boutique at a 20% discount until November 7th, 2016.
