AVOX Evo incorporates groundbreaking Evo Voice Processing technology. First seen (and heard) in Auto-Tune Evo, the result is a higher level of sonic performance. With faster, more accurate pitch detection, smoother, artifact-free pitch shifting, and seamless, natural-sounding (if you want it to be) throat modeling, Antares AVOX Evo plug-ins simply work better. This leaves you free to focus on creating your music.
From Antares, the company that revolutionized vocal production with Auto-Tune, comes AVOX Evo—the newest generation of the Antares Vocal Toolkit. Now featuring Antares’ highly evolved Evo Voice Processing Technology, AVOX Evo combines 10 state-of-the-art vocal processing modules that give you the power to create stunning vocal tracks in any musical style and design unique vocal effects for audio post-production applications.
Other Evo additions include redesigned user interfaces for the original 5 AVOX plug-ins; 5 integrated channels of Antares’ unique CHOIR Vocal Multiplier in Harmony Engine Evo; high-quality pitch shifting in THROAT Evo; tempo-synced alienization rate in MUTATOR Evo; and more.
The AVOX Evo Antares Vocal Toolkit includes:
Harmony Engine Evo Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator
A realtime harmony generating plug-in that puts professional-quality vocal harmony arrangements within reach of every songwriter, producer, musician, or engineer. With 4 independent harmony voices, a variety of powerful harmony generating modes, humanization features for natural sounding performances, 5 integrated channels of CHOIR Vocal Multiplier, and a flexible realtime preset system for harmony and vocal type, Harmony Engine Evo provides incredibly easy-to-use tools to produce virtually any vocal arrangement you can imagine.
Whether you’re an experienced vocal arranger, a songwriter looking for that perfect backup vocal, or a composer experimenting with unique vocal effects, Harmony Engine Evo gives you entirely new ways to create the harmony parts. In fact, experimenting with different harmonies is so easy, you may find yourself using Harmony Engine to explore harmonic alternatives you may never have otherwise considered.
MUTATOR Evo Extreme Voice Designer
MUTATOR Evo provides a combination of tools for creating unusual, weird, or downright wacky voices. With high-quality pitch shifting, throat modeling, pitch-tracking ring modulator-based “mutation,” and a mind-bending tempo-synced Alienization function, MUTATOR Evo is the perfect tool for unique, special vocal effects and post-production sound design.
ARTICULATOR Evo Digital Talk Box
A modern-day version of the venerable talk box, ARTICULATOR Evo lets you extract the formant and amplitude information from a vocal (or other dynamic source) and apply it to any other audio track, or to a built-in broadband noise generator. It’s perfect for talking guitars, singing synths, and a wide range of special effects.
WARM Tube Saturation Generator
Based on Antares’ legendary Tube plug-in, WARM warms up vocals with Antares’ world-renown analog tube modeling technology. It’s so processing-efficient that you can put an instance on pretty much every track in a project and still barely see your CPU meter twitch.
WARM is a great-sounding, incredibly easy-to-use tool for giving your vocals the benefits of a wide range of modeled analog tube effects. It has two tube models; variable Drive control, to set just the right amount of dynamic saturation; and an innovative OmniTube function to apply the tube effect to the entire signal (as opposed to just the transients).
ASPIRE Evo Aspiration Noise Processor
ASPIRE Evo is the world’s first tool for modifying a voice’s breathiness independently of its harmonic content. Whether reducing a bit of vocal rasp or adding a bit of smokiness, ASPIRE Evo allows modification of the amount and quality of a voice’s aspiration noise without otherwise affecting the vocal’s harmonic characteristics.
When you speak or sing, air from your lungs is forced through your vocal chords, causing them to vibrate. The resulting waveform is propagated through the throat, the mouth, and out through the lips. It is the shape of these structures that create the resonant characteristics that define a unique vocal identity.
But going into a bit more detail, the vocal waveform is actually a combination of two different components. One, the one we usually think of as the primary element of vocal timbre, is the harmonic content generated by the process described above. However, there is a second component that is generated by the turbulence of the air rushing past the vocal chords. This component, aspiration noise, does not have harmonic content and can roughly be thought of as “breathiness.”
Aspiration noise presents itself in a variety of ways, from a subtle bit of breathiness to a full-blown rasp. Of course, whether it’s a problem or not depends on the amount of noise and the style of a performance. A whole lot of roughness that would work well for screaming punk or roots blues might well be a problem for mainstream pop or a smooth ballad (of course, it also might not). Up to now, there wasn’t much you could do about it. Now, with ASPIRE Evo, there is.
THROAT Evo Physical Modeling Vocal Designer
THROAT Evo is a revolutionary new vocal tool that lets you process a vocal through a meticulously crafted physical model of the human vocal tract. THROAT Evo begins by neutralizing the effect of the original singer’s vocal tract and then gives you the ability to specify the characteristics of the modeled vocal tract.
THROAT Evo’s controls allow you to modify the voice’s glottal waveform as well as globally stretch, shorten, widen, or constrict the modeled vocal tract. For even more detailed control, THROAT Evo’s graphical Throat Shaping display allows you to individually adjust the position and width of five points in the vocal tract model, from the vocal chords, through the throat, mouth, and out to the lips. THROAT Evo’s Breathiness controls let you add variable frequency noise to the model, resulting in a range of vocal effects from subtle breathiness, to raspiness, to a full whisper. Finally, THROAT Evo allows you to shift the pitch of the voice up or down an octave to create a wide range of alternative vocal characters.
While THROAT Evo has been designed to allow subtle modifications to a voice’s vocal quality, the range of the controls also allows the creation of vocal tract models well beyond the limits of physical human anatomy, offering the possibility of vocal characteristics that are simply unattainable by any other means.
DUO Evo Vocal Modeling Auto-Doubler
DUO Evo automatically generates a doubled vocal part from an existing vocal. In addition to allowing programmable variation in pitch, timing, and vibrato depth, for even more realism, DUO Evo also includes a simplified version of THROAT Evo’s vocal modeling to provide timbral variation for the doubled part. DUO Evo’s output section gives you independent control of the level and stereo position of the original and doubled voices.
CHOIR Evo Vocal Multiplier
Neither a harmonizer nor a conventional chorus effect, CHOIR Evo is a unique processor that actually turns a single voice into 4, 8, 16, or 32 distinct individual unison voices, each with its own pitch, timing, and vibrato variations. The voices can, if desired, be spread across the stereo spectrum. Assign an instance of CHOIR Evo to each of four voices singing four-part harmony and voil&aagrave;, instant choir.
PUNCH Evo Vocal Impact Enhancer
PUNCH Evo is a unique processor that, as its name implies, lets you quickly and easily give your vocal more dynamic impact, allowing it to cut through a dense mix with clarity and power. Combining advanced dynamic processing with an incredibly easy-to-use interface, PUNCH Evo gives professional results while letting you focus on your music.
SYBIL Evo Variable Frequency De-Esser
SYBIL Evo tames vocal sibilance with threshold, ratio, attack, and decay controls as well as a variable sidechain high-pass frequency to match any vocal performance.
