Antares Announce Harmony EFX


Here's what Antares have to say about Harmony EFX which should be available later this month...
Harmony EFX is a streamlined (and incredibly affordable) version of our industry-leading Harmony Engine Evo Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator. Based on the same groundbreaking Evoâ„¢ Voice Processing Technology as its big brother, Harmony EFX puts professional quality vocal harmony arrangements within reach of any musician or engineer. Whether you're an experienced vocal arranger, a songwriter looking for that perfect backup vocal, or a composer experimenting with unique vocal effects, Harmony EFX gives you entirely new ways to create the harmony parts you hear in your head.
Key Harmony EFX features include:
  • Evoâ„¢ Voice Processing Technology for faster, more accurate pitch detection, smoother, artifact-free pitch shifting and seamless, natural-sounding (if you want it to be) throat modeling
  • Four high-quality, formant-corrected harmony voices with independent pan settings
  • Antares Throat Modeling technology that lets you process each harmony voice through a physical model of the human vocal tract
  • A variety of innovative Harmony Control modes, from fully automatic to individual control of every note:
    • Fixed or Scale Intervals: Simply set the key and harmony voice intervals and let Harmony EFX do the rest
    • Chord Degrees or Chord Name: Define your harmony chord-by-chord, complete with inversions and variable vocal ranges
    • Chord by MIDI: Define your harmony in real time via a MIDI controller or pre-recorded MIDI track
    • MIDI Omni: Directly "play" the four harmony voices as if they were voices of a synth or sampler
    • MIDI Channel: Use four separate MIDI channels for absolute control over each note of your vocal arrangement
  • Spread and Register controls that allow you to quickly and intuitively set the pitch range and harmony style of your vocal arrangement
  • Humanize functions that provide selectable amounts of variation to each harmony voice for realistic, natural sounding results
  • A Harmony Preset matrix that lets you create up to 12 complete harmony settings and instantaneously recall them in real time or via automation
