Real-Time Vocal Pitch and Formant Shifting

  • Dramatically Alter Your Voice

    With just two main controls, you can change more than vocal pitch—you can transform your vocal’s character, age, even gender. Lower the Formant for a bigger, deeper voice with male characteristics, or raise it for a higher, tighter voice with female or even child-like qualities.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Perform Shifted Vocals in Real Time

    Vocal Bender works in real time, so you can keep the creativity going and get your ideas down quickly. Track through the plugin at zero latency, so you can hear the effect on your voice in real time. You can also use Vocal Bender live on stage: pull it up on your live DAW session and manipulate the vocal during the live performance.

  • Modulate the Vocal for Even More Creativity

    Open up Vocal Bender’s trunk to access the plugin’s deeply musical modulation features. With a few clicks you’ll add vibrato, pitch drops, sequenced pitching, and more. With four simultaneous modulation sources—step sequencer, LFO, amplitude envelope, and pitch envelope—the creative possibilities are endless.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Flatten the Vocal for Robotic Effects

    Hit the Flatten button to flatten the vocal to any selected single pitch—and create instant robot-like vocal effects. Combine the flattened vocal with Vocal Bender’s deep modulation and sequencing features, to produce vocal sequences that use the original voice as a creative starting point—easy.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Sound Like Two Vocalists—Or Go Beyond Vocals

    On the subtle side, create softly altered vocal doubles that subtly change the natural voice—as if a different vocalist is doing the doubling for you. Use the Mix control to easily blend the ‘two vocalists’ together. Or, go beyond vocals: pitch guitar parts down to make them sound like bass guitar, or go wild with creative pitch shifting effects on any instrument.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
