I've been watching some demos on the new Waves vocal effects plugin Ovox and I have to say that I find it quite interesting.

I own already iZotope's vocal synth 2 but this one sounds better to me apart from having some additional features like an arpeggiator and the possibility to assign chords to single keys or assign LFO's to controls by drag and drop, so I am thinking about getting it. What do you think about it?

Definitely a very interesting plugin. Good to see Waves doing more creative effects for once. I'm sure I'll be getting it eventually.
No signature here!

Initial thoughts
a) I have and rarely use Vocal Synth 2, so though this is interesting, I doubt I would use it.
b) it will be annoying overused, much like autotune.
c) why isn't it part of the mercury bundle?

I like the GUI and the demo sounds are decent, but I really dislike the way that Waves plugins load and I'd rather use Vocal Synth, so I'll easily pass on this.

I thought about it and then I remembered how much WUP I paid for v11

Don't pay for anything that's working. :D I have both v9,10 and 11 together.

How do they load? I haven't purchased any Waves plugin yet, would be interesting to know what to pay attention to before purchasing...

Seems like Waves ends up selling their stuff for much less money at some point, I hope they include ovox and vocal rider in a single bundle, that would be perfect for me

Ovox is part of the Inspire Virtual Instruments Collection bundle. Waves offers me the upgrade from my individuals for about 36$. I have to think about it.

Great, thanks for that information, I just added the bundle to my wishlist, for me the price is quite far from $36, I guess you already own some of their plugins?

Agree. Your point c is particularly relevant. Absolute headscratcher.

Yes. With the upgrade I would get 3 new ones. I have the others already.

Pretty good deal if you have other plugins. My Inspire update was $45. The Ovox is pretty cool and sounds a million times better than Izotope’s offering which I find unusable.
If it's just a great sounding Vocoder one is looking for then the XILs vocoder is unbeatable at the moment.
