Up to 4 part harmonies For Powercore or Pro Tools|HD users 21/01/06
TC-Helicon have announced the Harmony4 plug-in for Pro Tools|HD and TCâ€™s PowerCore platform.
With the new plug-in, producers, engineers and songwriters can fatten existing harmony tracks by adding new 1- to 4-part harmonies after the singer has left the studio.
TC-Heliconâ€™s harmony algorithms will already be familiar to users of VoicePro, VoiceLive, and VoiceWorks. Up to four virtual singers with individual gender, vibrato, levels and various humanization controls are created from a single vocal track. Harmony4 features the TC-Heliconâ€™s latest generation harmony technology with robust pitch detection and Hybrid ShiftingTM algorithms.
TC-Helicon tell us that the user interface of the Harmony4 plug-in was designed with the utmost user-friendliness in mind, and several schemes that simplify the choice of harmony are offered: From automatic scale-based harmony that intelligently follows melismatic singing, to MIDI note control allowing any possible melody to compliment the lead vocal.
