Antares are now offering a version of their AutoTune plug-in for the UAD platform with the Antares Auto-Tune Live Plug-In. (Editor: see update below)
This version of the plug-in offers a number of unique features by harnessing the power of the UAD DSP chips.
- Realtime pitch correction and manipulation with iconic Auto-Tune effect
- Incredibly low latency for instant response, onstage or in the studio
In particular with live recording the option to have a tuned copy of the vocal is helpful. Many live sound engineers are now using the UAD platform on live rigs, so a low latency version of Antares AutoTune may prove useful.
On December 4th 2015 11 months after this story was posted UAD made the following announcement on their User Forums
Many of you have been asking about our plans to release Autotune Live and TC Electronic plug-ins on the UAD platform. Since we announced these partnerships some time ago, your questions are well founded!
To cut to the chase, neither Autotune Live or TC Electronic plug-ins for UAD-2 and Apollo are going to be released.
By way of explanation, the UAD platform consists of both UA-developed (“in house”) plug-ins, and Direct Developer (3rd party) plug-ins. While we have complete control over our internal development, this control does not extend to our Direct Developer products.
Ultimately, the decision to release Direct Developer plug-ins, like those from Antares or TC Electronics, rests with the development partner.
Of course, we do our best not to make partnership announcements until we’re certain. But sometimes, as in life, plans change.
We recognize that this news may affect your future plans, so we appreciate your understanding.
