Antares today announces the immediate availability of Auto-Tune EFX 2 the second generation of their tool for real-time pitch correction. Antares Auto-Tune EFX 2 now features Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation. Powered by the same technology as Antares’ Professional Standard Auto-Tune 7, Auto-Tune EFX 2 is the easiest-to-use tool for real-time pitch correction and creating the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. With its new Auto-MotionVocal Pattern Generation, you have the possibility to add a variety of musical patterns to your track for an entirely new (and sonically dramatic) vocal effect.
Designed to make almost everything automatic, Antares Auto-Tune EFX 2 provides two different flavors of the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect as well as Antares’ world-renown real-time pitch correction. Just select your desired effect type, set the key and scale of your track, and Auto-Tune EFX does the rest. For songs with complex chord progressions or modulations, you can optionally set up custom scales or use your host’s automation facility to allow the processing of virtually any vocal line.
New in Antares Auto-Tune EFX 2 is Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation. Auto-Motion takes advantage of Auto-Tune’s pitch-shifting ability to add intricate musical patterns to a vocal performance. Patterns are selected from a built-in (and expandable) library in a variety of styles and can be synced to your host’s tempo at various beat divisions. At any point in your vocal track, simply click the Auto-Motion Trigger button to send your vocal on a melodic adventure.
With Auto-Tune EFX 2, musicians are not limited to just the built-in Auto-Motion patterns. Since Auto-Tune EFX 2’s patterns are stored in a dedicated file in standard MusicXML format, users can use any application that can open and edit MusicXML files (including a selection of free open-source apps) to edit existing patterns and create entirely new patterns of their own. So each user’s vocal tracks can always feature their own unique Auto-Motion effects.
Auto-Tune EFX 2 is available now for RTAS (Mac OS X and PC), VST (Mac OS X and PC) and Audio Units (Mac OS X) at a U.S. MSRP of $129.00. Macintosh versions require Intel processors. Upgrades to Auto-Tune EFX 2 are available for purchase and download by current registered Auto-Tune EFX owners (including owners of the Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Toolkit and the Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Suite) for $39.00.
