Antares rilascia Auto-Tune EFX 2

Antares ha rilasciato Auto-Tune EFX 2, il famosissimo real-time pitch correction plug in per Windows e Mac.

Powered by the same core technology as Antares’ professional standard Auto-Tune 7, Auto-Tune EFX 2 is the quickest, easiest-to-use tool for real-time pitch correction and creating the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. And now, with its new Auto-Motion™ Vocal Pattern Generation, you can add a variety of intricate musical patterns to your track for an entirely new (and sonically dramatic) vocal effect.

Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX 2 provides two different flavors of the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect as well as Antares’ world-renown real-time pitch correction. Just select your desired effect type, set the key and scale of your track, and Auto-Tune EFX 2 does the rest. For songs with complex chord progressions or modulations, you can optionally set up custom scales or use your host’s automation facility to allow the processing of virtually any vocal line.

New in Auto-Tune EFX 2 is Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation. Auto-Motion takes advantage of Auto-Tune’s superb pitch-shifting ability to add intricate musical patterns to a vocal performance.

Waves rilascia Bass Rider

Waves ha presentato Bass Rider, un innovativo plug-in che gestisce i livelli del basso automaticamente.
Chi conosce il "fratello maggiore" Vocal Rider, sempre da Waves, sa bene di cosa si parla: l'intento del plug-in è quello di sostituire la pratica delle automazioni "manuali" fatte sul nostro banco/controller/DAW.
Sebbene questo plug in sia molto efficace in numerose circostanze, resto sempre del parere che per ottenere risultati professionali l'automazione manuale (Vocal Riding o Bass Riding) sia ancora necessaria.

A companion to our popular Vocal Rider plugin, Bass Rider delivers perfect bass levels, without changing the natural sound of your bass. Optimized especially for the frequency range and envelope characteristics of bass instruments, Bass Rider covers all the basses: DI, amplified, acoustic, synth, upright—you name it.

A real timesaver with dedicated studio and live components, Bass Rider keeps bass levels in check and solid throughout your mix. Unlike a compressor, Bass Rider works note by note, without disturbing their inner dynamics, so they sustain and decay naturally. Best of all, since Bass Rider keeps your levels steady with automatic gain adjustment, now you can focus on the feel and flow of your bass—and use compression to add color and character.

With Bass Rider, you’ll never mix bass the same way again.

  • Rides bass levels automatically.
  • Optimized for bass instruments.
  • Retains the natural character of the bass.
  • Dedicated studio and live components.
  • Up to 24bit 192kHz resolution.
  • Mono and Stereo components.
  • Supports TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST, AU.
  • PC and Mac compatible.

Bass Rider è in vendita a $99 USD (Native) / $149 USD (TDM).
