Composer Jeff Essex recorded Jerry Kennedy singing the lead vocal, then used Harmony Engine Evo's MIDI Channel mode to produce all of the harmony parts, including the integrated CHOIR on some of the phrases.

Demonize

Basic Alienization

Applying Alienization with a medium Dialect setting to the otherwise unaffected vocal.

Short Period Alienization

Another variety of Mutation and Dialect set to a shorter period, allowing more recognizable bits of the original phrase to come though.

Long Period Alienization

Yet another variety of Mutation with Dialect set to a much longer period, moving fully into the land of the weird.

Tempo-Synced Alienization

In this demo by Allen Papouban, MUTATOR Evo's Tempo-Synced Alienization function is used to sync the alienized vocal to the tempo of the song.

Automated Variation

All of MUTATOR Evo's various tools can be automated. Here we torture our vocal for the last time, varying pitch shift, throat models, mutation, processed/original mix and alienization.

My Life - Original

My Life - Processed

Processed in real time with one instance of MUTATOR, using automation to vary the pitch shift, throat length and width, original and processed mix (to produce harmony), and even a little alienization.
