zplane.development release version 1.1 of vielklang with RTAS support 15/10/07
zplane.development have now released version 1.1 of vielklang, the audio harmonization instrument for easy generation of vocal or instrumental harmonies with up to four voices. The company say that utilization of voice leading and harmony progression models allows vielklang to create harmony parts in a more musical way than traditional harmony processors and makes it a versatile and creative tool for musicians, songwriters and producers.
Version 1.1 now offers support for the RTAS interface and includes the following new features:
two-voice harmonization mode, generating only a second voice in a typical backing vocal style
availability of 7th chords
timing humanization control
single note splitting and muting
dragâ€™nâ€™drop and file export of audio and midi data
vielklang allows quick and easy creation of natural sounding backing vocals, brass sections, and other harmony parts with up to four voices. It offers a new musical approach for the generation of the voicings: rather than synthesizing plain parallel voicings, vielklang takes into account the melodic context to create a chord-based arrangement and is thus able to produce musical harmonizations instantly.
Automatic recognition engines take care of initialization of obvious parameters like root note and key to let the user to focus on musical issues rather than tedious plugin configuration.
While vielklang will provide instant and meaningful results, experienced users have the option to edit the result with parameters like range (ambitus) or the distribution of the voices, to modify root note and scale, to edit single harmonies and to change each single pitch of each individual voice. vielklangâ€™s main features are:
musical harmonization using voice-leading and harmony progression models
adjustable pitch correction, delay, timing humanization, timbre, volume, and pan for each voice
MIDI-controlled snapshot system allows several harmonizations per audio input
one-click modification of tempo, pitch, scale and harmonies
plug and play: donâ€™t waste time with tedious configuration
