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
