Waves Audio is now shipping Vocal Bender, a real-time voice manipulation plugin.
A spokesperson told us, "With Waves' Vocal Bender, you can now manipulate your vocals in real time for the most popular sounds in hip-hop, pop, R&B and electronic genres. With zero latency and two simple Pitch and Formant controls, you can easily track, mix and perform hit-sounding pitch-shifted vocals, instantly."
Here's more details direct from Waves...
Vocal Bender is the fastest and simplest way to get "that sound" – Travis Scott deep-voiced ad-libs, Billie Eilish-style vocal doubles, Frank Ocean-style pitch-and formant-shifted lead vocals, or the high-pitched vocal topline in every EDM drop. You can go extreme and make your vocals move between genders, change age, sound miniature or appear gigantic. On the subtle side, simply add soft harmonies, vibrato or vocal doubling for thickness.
Waves created this tool for musicians and producers to get your ideas down quickly, saving precious time when working creatively. It allows you to track through the plugin, so you can hear the pitch and formant effects on your voice as you track. You can even use Vocal Bender in live performances: pull it up on your live DAW session and manipulate your live vocal sound, without latency.
In addition to the main Pitch and Formant controls, the plugin also has a "Flatten" feature to lock into a single pitch and sound robotic. You can also open up Vocal Bender's trunk to access four extra modulators, including LFO and sequencing. With a few clicks you'll add vibrato, pitch drops, sequenced pitching, and more. The modulators bring more musicality and movement to your sound, and help you differentiate your style.
