We're extremely pleased to announce the availability of Auto-Tune 7, the next generation of the worldwide standard in professional pitch correction.
Hailed at its introduction as a "Holy Grail of recording," Auto-Tune has stood for well over a decade as the professional pitch correction tool of choice and has become the world's best-selling audio plug-in. Now, with its new-from-the-ground-up time manipulation capabilities, Auto-Tune 7 brings the same combination of power, superb audio quality and ease of use to rhythmic editing.
What's New in Auto-Tune 7
By far the most dramatic addition to Auto-Tune 7 is its entirely new time correction and manipulation system. Seamlessly integrated into the Graphical Mode interface, Auto-Tune 7's time control capabilities allow you to quickly and easily edit the timing of your vocals right along with their pitch.
Auto-Tune 7 also features the second generation of Antares' Evo™ Voice Processing Technology, offering even more natural (if you want it to be) pitch shifting and throat modeling, along with new Graphical Mode MIDI functions, a host of time-saving workflow enhancements, and much more. You can find all the details below.
Key new Auto-Tune 7 features include:
Integrated time correction and manipulation: Auto-Tune 7's time control capabilities combine an extremely high-quality time shifting algorithm with an exceedingly intuitive user interface designed to make it quick and easy to correct timing errors or exercise your creative imagination. Auto-Tune 7's time manipulation functions include the ability to move a point in time within a selected range as well as move a range in time within a larger range.
Evo™ Voice Processing Technology: In 2008, Auto-Tune Evo introduced Antares' seriously evolved Evo Voice Processing Technology, setting a new standard in pitch detection, pitch shifting, and formant processing performance. Now, with Auto-Tune 7, we are introducing the second generation of Evo Voice Processing Technology, offering even more natural (if you want it to be) pitch shifting and throat modeling over a wider transposition range.
Create target notes from MIDI in Graphical Mode: When tracking pitch in Graphical Mode, Auto-Tune 7 will record any MIDI note information routed to it and display the data on the Pitch Graph Display. You can then convert the MIDI information into Note Correction Objects. Perfect for fine-tuning the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect or even completely redefining melodies.
Adjust Throat Length on an individual correction object basis: To give you maximum control over the timbre of your vocal tracks, Throat Length Adjustment is now an independent property of each individual correction object .
Enhanced Amplitude Envelope Display: Whenever time control is enabled, the Amplitude Envelope Display will display both the original audio and the time-shifted audio, updating in real time as you make your edits. So you'll always be able to see at a glance the results of your time edits relative to the original audio.
Enhanced Graphical Mode Adjust Vibrato function: Auto-Tune 7's new Adjust Vibrato let's you modify the depth of any natural vibrato in the original performance. And since it is additive, acting on any already existing correction object, you are free to work on pitch correction and vibrato adjustment in any order desired.
Amplitude envelope in the graphical editing window: While its primary function is to help make precise selections for time shifting, since it is always visible in the center of the window, it provides a helpful indication of the presence of tracked audio, even if that audio is currently beyond the upper or lower boundaries of the window.
Expanded keyboard shortcuts: Auto-Tune 7's Key Binding system has been expanded to allow you to program custom keyboard access to the new time manipulation tools and controls.
Increased vertical zoom range in Graphical Mode: For ease of extremely precise pitch editing, you can now zoom all the way in to the one-cent-per-pixel level.
And lots more...
