Instant Vocal Pitch Correction—Easier Than Ever

  • Instant Gratification: Corrective or Creative

    Cover a wide range of effects with just two main controls—Speed and Note Transition. These easy controls, together with the accompanying Tolerance settings, will let you determine whether you’re going for subtle, transparent, natural-sounding correction, or for hard-tuned creative effects.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Fast, Accurate Tracking for Natural Timbre and Vibrato

    The tuned vocal retains its natural timbre, thanks to innovative pitch detection and correction. You can even optimize performance for the singer’s range, and choose the amount of vibrato tracking.

  • The Vocalist’s Safety Net

    Waves Tune Real-Time is a vocal’s safety net. Designate “wrong” notes in advance so pitches won’t be corrected to them, and increase correction to compensate if the singer’s pitch is way off.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Play Your Pitch with MIDI

    Play vocal notes at any pitch, with the virtual keyboard. Hook up a MIDI controller, or play back from a MIDI track. Almost all parameters have MIDI learn—go ahead, control vibrato with a synth’s mod wheel.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Select Your Scale—Or Customize Your Own

    Quantize to 43 scales, drawn from traditional western and eastern musical styles. Even create your own custom scales, and choose whether “illegal” notes should play the highest or lowest scale note that’s closest.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
