Pitchometry is a pitch shifting plug-in delivering quality and flexibility in an efficient framework that allows multiple independent pitch shifted voices. A single voice can become a chorus of voices or simply be given fullness with some soft layered voices. A monophonic instrument can be given multiple voices, transform a single flute into chords in real time.
Keeping a natural high quality sound is a high priority with Pitchometry and the formant options keep away the 'squeak' of high pitch shifts and keep low shifts from sounding dull and without fullness. Finally Pitchometry does not suffer from the usually drawbacks of standard pitch plug-ins. It works with chords and polyphonic signals, human speech, and noisy signals with ease.
Formant Shifting Controls allow the user to fine tune the frequency response of the shifted sound to make it as natural as possible, or to shift it radically up or down.
A Mixer screen is provided to let users adjust the volume of voices side by side and to add in the dry signal. Pan is also adjustable.
LFO, envelope follower, and external modulation can be applied to the pitch or to various parameters.
Delay can be applied to voices individually, and has a host of controls such as feedback and modulation. Delay can add lush backing effects or offset voices to make them seem more independent.
A special graphic EQ section can be applied to each voice.
Chords and Harmonies
The Harmonize feature will detect the current pitch and offset the pitch shift by whatever value you desire. A scale can be shifted by minor and major thirds providing a traditional harmony, or any other combination you desire. Adding multiple voices lets you create chords and choruses of pitch shifted notes.

Looking around for a great Pitch Shifting plugin I came across the previous review and it sounded solid and well thought out so I went and downloaded the demo to compare with other plugins I was considering. I was blown away, especially by the multiple voices and great modifiers. I'm using this in Bitwig and at the moment the plugin host only shows parameters as "Ctrl 0, 1, 2, etc" but not the name of the function that's being modified. To get to the presets I have to click on "Show plug-in programs" on the host window in the device chain and then there are only 5 presets - 20 more would be greatly appreciated! The guys at Aegean Music have done a superb job.
As I was writing this I noticed that Aegean have announced a 35% off sale coming up September 1 with special bundle pricing and a new version of Pitchometry coming out!!!! HUGE.Read more

Highly recommended if you are looking for a good sounding pitch shift effect with zero latency.
I was searching for a decent latency free pitch shift VST for years. It's not too hard to find one with a good sound, but they always come with latency up to 200 ms. The best one I've found still has ~40 ms. Still too much for live recordings.
The ones I've found without latency had a very unnatural sound, especially at higher pitch rates. (+/- 1 octave)
The only exception is Eventide's Octavox, which earns the second place imo, since it has a "Live Mode" where it's latency free, and it sounds pretty good. At least in not too extreme situations.
But pitching down the low b string of my 7-string electric guitar by 1 octave is too much for it. The sound "flutters".
Pitchometry can handle this situation quite well.
There's a demo version available on their site. It's fully functional, there's just a noise coming from time to time. (in a very fair frequency by the way - not every 10 seconds like in some other plugins where it's hard to focus on the sound properly)
I highly recommend to check it out. The price-performance ratio is excellent.Read more
