for a free effect this is a must-have. it corrects pitch even better than the "real" autotune, the only downside is that it theirfore distorts the sample quite a lot, but if you go for a robotic voice anyway it doesn't matter, does it? i especially love how easy it is to get to new, wide and unique voices with the formant knobs, transposing and panning. singing with this plugin feels like a bob ross painting. the ultra hard pitchshifting is also useful if you wanna make your voice sound like an eguitar. just use this plugin on its maxed out settings and put any huge guitar amp VST behind it and you feel like a skillful guitar solo.
Kerovee is simply fun to use and play with. As soon as I plugged it in to my tracks and turned it on I was excited. Frankly, I am suprised something so cool is free.
Putting it on a guitar track I was able to get a real interesting flange type sound, that made the guitar part really stand out from the other tracks. Just as well, plugging it in on an already split vocal track - and suddenly I had a country sounding duet with an auto tuned male and a country chick! Without doing anything I was impressed, with a little equalization and compression my wife was asking who the chick was I was singing with :).
Very fun. I have only started to scratch the surface with this.
If you are trolling KVR looking for the best freeware - this and the lighter Rovee are musts for your collection.
There are several freeware automatic pitch-correction plugins and I've tried them all. By far, the one with the most arrestingly good effect is KeroVee's. It's the best-sounding and its GUI is arguably the best-looking. It makes lovely R&B warbles, strong pop-vocals, the characteristic T-Payne effect, absolutely all of that good stuff one would want from an automatic pitch-correction plugin. I whole-heartedly recommend this to anyone looking to manipulate or correct vocals.
(For bonus fun, try sending all your reverb to a track with this on it. It results in something that sounds like a glitchy string section.).
Yeah, that happens all the time, even with subtle settings. my workaround is that i cut off the highend and leave the original highend in it. that burries the grainyness in the mid frequencies under the illusion of cleanness a bit.
