Award-winning electronic duo Infected Mushroom have released version 1.0 of Manipulator, a real-time vocal processor boasting an array of 10 unique pitch shifting and timbre bending effects. This is their second release with Polyverse Music after the success of their first plugin, I Wish.

Manipulator can warp the sound of vocals and melodic instruments beyond recognition, or subtly add character to a performance. It can even be played via a keyboard to control pitch on the fly, as well as a slew of other effects. The result is a creative way to take a natural voice and transform it into ethereal choirs, guttural granular textures, twisted robotized voices, and even more. Infected have used Manipulator extensively in their new album, Return to the Sauce, including their track with the new processor's namesake.

Manipulator's algorithms are based around 5 main effects: pitch, formant and harmonics shifting, FM and grain alternation. Included for even more manipulation are supporting effects such as glide, smear, stereo and detune.

The real-time capabilities of this plug-in make it perfect in live situations for vocal performers and instrumentalists. Whether in the studio or on stage, users can play their MIDI controller to change the melody of a performance at zero latency. This feature also enables on-the-fly harmonies, with up to 4 voices of polyphony.

Manipulator is available in VST, AU, and AAX formats, making it compatible with a variety of host applications including Ableton Live, Logic, Pro Tools, Cubase, FL Studio and Studio One. It can be used in 32 or 64-bit instances with Windows XP and later and with Mac OS X 10.6 and later.

A demo version is also available.

Review Infected Mushroom: Manipulator Now!

Discussion: Active

as much as i like the band (at least until their last offering which just didn't hit home for me, but, hey, that's only my opinion) so i have tried their plugins and can only say that they are WAY overpriced for what they are, which is what most people already have in some other form, i still use stuff from smarteletronix which does the job for me. i can't see this selling much at all...

and the Polyverse site is down from my end...
