In this Harmony Engine tutorial video, you’ll learn just how easy it is to create incredible virtual harmonies from a single vocal track. Produce natural-sounding layers, or tweak it to discover your own synthesized vocal sounds. With Harmony Engine, your creativity is the only reality that matters.

The Best Virtual Harmonizer

In this video, you’ll learn how to optimize the settings that analyze the incoming vocal. You can then adjust the glottal (vocal cords) characteristics. Josh shows how to choose the interval for each harmony voice, and how this tracks the pitch in real time. The volume, stereo panning, and even throat length is independently adjustable for each virtual singer.

Harmony Control lets you source harmonies from scales, chords, and modes, as well as fix Harmony Engine’s processing to the musical key of the song. Josh then showcases the amazing Vibrato section, where each harmony vocal can have its own vibrato rate, onset delay, and depths for pitch and volume variation. Finally, the Choir function thickens things up even more, adding unison voices to each harmony voice independently, with separate control over pitch, timing, and stereo width.
