Prodyon has released Enchoir, a vocoder-based 6-part Vocal-Harmonizer VST effect plug-in for Windows. It can be used to create vocal backing-lines in a short period of time. Enchoir uses a doubling-algorithm to make you sound like you had 20 people singing with you. It can be used for any musical style where you need to either thicken up the lead vocal or have a choir singing in the background.
