At the heart of KLON - The Vocal Designer is a harmonic pitch shifter for natural pitch and formant manipulation of vocal sounds in realtime. KLON takes your voice and adds up to 16 different copies of your voice in realtime. This lays the ground for an impressive amount of applications like:
- Choir generator.
- Voice doubler.
- Change voice's gender.
- Pitch corrector.
- Extreme voice manipulation.
The 16 pitch shifters inside KLON are divided into 4 groups making it easy to build up large choral parts from a simple, single vocal line. The four separate, switchable groups have their own dedicated set of controls. These controls include an x-y pad for fast, easy control of pitch and panorama. Each group can be altered in real time while music is playing or can be by-passed, edited and switched back on when required. The pitch for each group can be shifted by up to +/- two octaves with adjustable formant control retaining voice quality even at extreme settings. All of those controls are available for host automation for dynamic voice manipulations.
KLON includes a flexible and adaptive pitch correction to any given scale or external MIDI notes and chords. Think of playing a chord to immediately harmonize your vocal input. The realtime manipulation possibilities together with the low latency operation makes KLON the ideal live plug-in for vocals.
