Harmonizer?
« on: August 14, 2008, 08:25:44 AM »
This is about software but since it is vocal specific, I'll ask here.

I'm gonna google it, but does anyone know of a good free or cheap vocal harmonizer/processor?

OR

I wonder if I might enlist some fellow board members to contribute some vocal samples???  ::)

I've looked for this for years.  Have never found a good one, or at least one that was affordable.  Possibly someone else has come across something.

Enlisting a vocalist here might be easier, if you can talk one of them into it. :D  If you have something ready to go for vocals I'd ask in the Collab board...

The only thing I've seen is hardware:

Digitech Vocalist Live 2

There ain't much out there for free.  :(

But I found a four band pitch shifter that might help do it manually.

Thanks Jaxon.  I'd looked at Chrissy before and didn't care for it, but I just downloaded the pitch shifter to take a look at.  Off to install it...

I just tried this out and got........nothing. Tried it on a voice, single guitar string, and bass....nothing. Did anyone else ever get this working, and if so, how was it?
Question,

Since this was started already AND I could've/should've/didn't put Melodyne in here here's a new one to make up for it.

And there's a demo and everything, so it says on the web-site...

veilklang 1.5

It's all about Music

vielklang "thinks musically" and prepares intelligent voicings. vielklang by zplane is packed with musical intelligence and music theory: it automatically detects the best fitting harmonies for each individual input melody, and automatically synthesizes up to four voices with the voices not merely running in parallel but with their voicings automatically selected to sound most natural (voice leading). vielklang gives you a natural-sounding result immediately and allows you to concentrate on tweaking the results rather than edit them from scratch as with traditional harmonizers.

How do you get vieklang to work?

I downloaded it and then opened it in mixcraft then i loaded a vocal file however how do you playback and hear it...the only way i hear anything is if i actually click on the colored notes/bars on the screen...I also try to save file and it wont let me...also demo only allows up to 30 seconds of a track.

Thanks for any help in advance.

I settled on the Antares Harmony Engine because it came with the collection I have! No really, it works well if ya mix it back in the mix (I used this on a couple collabs I mixed). The big downfall is, just like all the Antares stuff, it is a system resource HOG! :o ::)

If I had that chance to do it over I think I would have gone hardware for this effect, and created a Vocal chain out of hardware (pre-amp, compressor, etc.). All this VST plugin stuff is not what everyone makes it out to be unless you have a super strong system, and or render / mixdown / freeze your tracks a lot....just an IMHO type of rant.... ;) 8)

Yeah sorry Vince, I can't help you there mate. I read about this in the KVR newsletter and I remembered we had a post about vocal harmonisers somewhere so I dropped it's link in here in case anyone was interested.

Being at the start of my bandwidth period and having already downloaded 15 to 20% of my limit (Killzone 2 demo, Ubuntu Studio, various d/loads for other stuff... Guitar Rig XE.. twice first d/l failed at about 90% when I was asleep ::)) I'm leaving giving this a shot until later.
