Antares Audio Technologies has announced the availability of the AVOX Evo Antares Vocal Toolkit, the third generation of the comprehensive vocal processing suite. Now featuring Antares' seriously evolved Evo Voice Processing Technology, AVOX Evo combines ten state-of-the-art vocal processing modules to give musicians, engineers and sound designers the power they need to create stunning vocal tracks in any musical style as well as design unique vocal effects for audio post-production applications.
New in AVOX Evo is the incorporation of Dr. Andy's Evo Voice Processing technology. First seen (and heard) in Auto-Tune Evo, the result is an entirely new level of sonic performance. With faster, more accurate pitch detection, smoother, artifact-free pitch shifting, and seamless, natural-sounding (if desired) throat modeling, AVOX Evo plug-ins just work better. Leaving musicians free to focus on creating their music. Other additions include redesigned user interfaces for the original five AVOX plug-ins, five integrated channels of Antares' unique Choir Vocal Multiplier in Harmony Engine Evo, high-quality pitch shifting in THROAT Evo, tempo-synced alienization rate in MUTATOR Evo, and more.
AVOX Evo includes:
Harmony Engine Evo Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator: A real-time harmony generating plug-in that puts professional-quality harmony arrangements within reach of any songwriter, producer, musician or engineer. A quick, easy tool for creating realistic harmonies.
MUTATOR Evo Extreme Voice Designer: MUTATOR Evo provides a combination of tools for creating unusual, weird, or downright wacky voices. With high-quality pitch shifting, throat modeling, pitch-tracking ring modulator-based "mutation" and a mind-bending Alienization function, MUTATOR is the perfect tool for unique vocal effects and post-production sound design.
ARTICULATOR Evo Digital Talkbox: A modern-day version of the venerable talk box, ARTICULATOR lets a user extract the formant and amplitude information from a vocal (or other dynamic source) and apply it to any other audio track. Perfect for talking guitars, singing synths, and a wide range of special effects.
THROAT Evo Physical Modeling Vocal Designer: A powerful vocal tool that lets you process a vocal through a meticulously crafted physical model of the human vocal tract.
DUO Evo Vocal Modeling Auto-Doubler: Using a simplified version of THROAT's vocal modeling, along with variations in pitch, timing and vibrato depth, DUO automatically generates a doubled vocal part with ease and realism.
Choir Evo Vocal Multiplier: Turns a single voice into up to 32 distinct individual unison voices, each with its own pitch, timing and vibrato variations. Assign instances of Choir to voices singing harmony and voila, instant choir.
PUNCH Evo Vocal Impact Enhancer: Gives your vocal more dynamic impact, allowing it to cut through a dense mix with clarity and power.
ASPIRE Evo Aspiration Noise Processor: ASPIRE is the world's first tool for modifying a voice's breathiness independently of its harmonic content. Whether reducing a bit of vocal rasp or adding a bit of smokiness, ASPIRE allows modification of the amount and quality of a voice's aspiration noise (the component of every voice that's the result of air passing over the vocal chords) without otherwise affecting the vocal's harmonic characteristics.
WARM Tube Saturation Generator: Based on Antares' Tube plug-in, WARM warms up vocals with Antares' analog tube modeling technology, while being so processing-efficient that it can be used on every track in a project with negligible impact on CPU usage.
SYBIL Evo Variable Frequency De-Esser: Tames vocal sibilance with a flexible compressor and a variable side-chain frequency to match any vocal performance. A quick, easy tool for creating realistic harmonies.
