Auto-Tune EFX 3

Real-Time Pitch Correction and Auto-Tune Vocal Effect

The Easiest, most affordable tool for real-time pitch processing.

Auto-Tune EFX 3

Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX 3 is the easiest-to-use tool for real-time pitch correction and the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. Just set the key and scale of your track, adjust the Retune Speed for your desired effect, and Auto-Tune EFX 3 does the rest.

Auto-Tune EFX 3’s new variable Retune Speed lets you fine tune the desired effect for your track, from transparent pitch correction to the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. The Humanize control ensures that short notes are effectively corrected while sustained notes are allowed to preserve their subtle pitch variations for the most natural, realistic pitch correction.

And with our unique Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation, stunning new vocal effects are only a mouse click away.

New in Auto-Tune EFX 3 is a fully adjustable Retune Speed control that lets you fine tune Auto-Tune EFX 3’s pitch processing for any performance and its new Humanize function provides pitch correction that is even more natural and realistic.

Pitch Correction
Like Auto-Tune 8, Auto-Tune EFX 3’s pitch correction works by continuously tracking the pitch of your vocal and comparing it to the notes in a (customizable) scale. The scale note closest to the input pitch is identified as the target note. If your vocal’s pitch exactly matches the target note, no correction is applied. If your vocal’s pitch varies from the target note, either sharp or flat, the output pitch is smoothly corrected to the target note.

 

The new variable Retune Speed control lets you fine tune the desired effect for your track, from subtle natural pitch correction to the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect.

The new Humanize function ensures that short notes are effectively corrected while sustained notes are allowed to preserve their subtle pitch variations for the most natural, realistic pitch correction.

Auto-Tune Vocal Effect

The Auto-Tune Vocal Effect is what is technically known as “pitch quantization.” Instead of allowing all of the small variations in pitch and the gradual transitions between notes that are a normal part of singing, the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect limits each note to an exact pitch, stripping out any variation, and forcing instantaneous transitions between notes.

Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation
Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation is a unique effect that adds intricate musical patterns to a vocal performance. Patterns are selected from a built-in library and can be synced to your host’s tempo at various beat divisions. At any point in your vocal track, simply click the Auto-Motion Trigger button to send your vocal on a melodic adventure.

With Humanize Off

The fast notes are completely tuned, but the sustained note is unnaturally static.

With Humanize On

The fast notes are still tuned, while allowing the sustained note to realistically reproduce the natural variations of the original performance.
