Hailed as a “holy grail of recording”, Auto-Tune is used daily by thousands of audio professionals around the world. Whether to save studio and editing time, ease the frustration of endless retakes, or to save that otherwise once-in-a-lifetime performance, Auto-Tune has become the professional pitch correction tool of choice.
Now Antares launches Auto-Tune 3. Preserving the great sound quality and ease of use of Auto-Tune, Auto-Tune 3 adds significant new features as well as a snazzy new user interface.
Key new features of Auto-Tune 3 include a revised core pitch detection algorithm, “source specific” pitch detection and correction algorithms (choices include Soprano Voice, Alto/Tenor Voice, Low Male Voice, Instrument, and Bass Instrument), phase-coherent pitch correction of stereo tracks.
A Bass Mode that lowers the lowest detectable frequency by about one octave to 25Hz. Since the lowest E string on a bass guitar is approximately 41Hz has been added, together with the ability to set target pitches in real-time via MIDI from a keyboard or sequencer track and with a new “Make Scale From MIDI” function. Sample rate goes up to 88.2kHz and 96kHz compatibility (depends upon host application and audio hardware support).
Auto-Tune 3 will be available in TDM, MAS, RTAS, Mac VST, and DirectX versions.
