Antares has completed the revamp of its real-time pitch correction suite of plug-ins with Auto-Tune Artist. Artist sits right in the middle of their product line between Auto-Tune Access and Auto-Tune Pro.
Artist replaces Antares’ older Auto-Tune Live plug-in and has all the new features and the streamlined interface that Auto-Tune Pro offers. Minus the offline manual graph editing mode. This update positions Artist as the most potent Antares product for real-time pitch correction for those of us who don’t need the manual graph editing functions.
Using the Basic view, it is dead simple to dial in natural-sounding pitch correction using the Flex-Tune, Humanize, and Natural Vibrato knobs. Their new detection algorithms are suited to a wide variety of vocal ranges and work impeccably. It’s also dead simple to dial in unnatural sounding pitch correction; AKA the Auto-Tune effect! Combined with the included formant, classic, and throat controls, you have all the necessary tools at your fingertips to create modern-sounding “Auto-Tuned” vocal tracks.
Advanced mode provides further control and customization over how pitch correction is applied, how existing vibrato is handled, and how non-existent vibrato is created.
