de la Mancha release the Octav8r VST 7-node pitch-shifter for Windows 15/01/08
de la Mancha have released their Octav8r plug-in, a 7 node pitch-shifter designed to add a richly layered sound to your audio signal.
Octav8r is a 7-node pitch-shifter that generates 6 differently pitched stereo versions of the audio input added to a â€˜dryâ€™ non-shifted signal to generate a richly layered sound. Each node has its own volume envelope and variable state filter plus send controls to vibrato, chorus, delay and reverb effects. The envelopes can be triggered by MIDI, audio gate or looped in sync with the host tempo.
de la Mancha have this to say, â€œThe primary idea of Octav8r is to create multiple pitch-shifted layers of the incoming audio. With some twiddling you can get creative with panning to generate separation around the stereo field, use envelopes to bring each node in and out at different times and use chorus, delay and reverb to make each node sit differently in the mix. You can use the tempo-sync envelope trigger to create rhythmic gating or pulsing and the envelope toggles to make only some nodes modulated whilst others stay constant. Most controls have midi CC and midi learn support, so with some automation or midi knob twiddling, you can make the output really move around.â€�
6 pitch-shifting nodes, with octave shifting (-3 to +3) and semitone shifting (-12 to +12, to 0.001 semitones)
All nodes have independent volume, pan, ADSR envelope, variable state filter, vibrato, chorus, delay and reverb controls
Node 0 is the â€˜dryâ€™ audio at incoming pitch, which also has pan, ADSR, chorus, delay and reverb
Envelopes can be triggered by midi note, audio gate, a tempo-sync loop or bypassed
Envelope contours can be changed and set to restart or pick-up at retrigger
Mix level can be adjusted between dry and pitch-shifted nodes
Each node can be fine tuned for pitch shift method and buffer size
Each node, envelope and effect can be switched off to save CPU
Midi CC support and midi learn for most controls
Multi-out version for hosts that can support this feature
