hey guys, im torn, im demoing pitchmonster and pretty much like it, it sounds nice, i can pitch sounds asap without having to use a granular synth, i can use my sampler and without altering the speed pitch it down etc.
but with manipulator i would have to have more controls like LFOs etc. so i wonder how the quality of the pitch shifting in manipulator is compared to pitchmonster? sadly i cannot demo Manipulator....

i would use these plugins for sound design and not for vocals atm. also i dont want to buy 2 plugins....

thx

I'm not familiar with Pitchmonster, but you do need to route MIDI into the plugin in order to create vocal harmonies with Manipulator.

I can't speak for Pitchmonster, but Manipulator is not clean. It's really not that kind of plug. It's more of an FSU mangler than a pitch shifter. I adore it, but don't go in expecting high quality pitch alteration. It's a special effects machine through and through.

This is what Manipulator and Pitch Monster "MIDI to Voice" sounds like with their default settings with my silly voice recording and a MIDI file, and the MIDI file is Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles, if anyone is wondering lol. :band:
