Product Description for the Antares Auto-Tune EFX3 Pitch Correction Software
Powered by the same core technology as Antares' professional standard Auto-Tune 8, Auto-Tune EFX 3 is the quickest, easiest-to-use tool for real-time pitch correction and creating the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. Auto-Tune EFX 3’s new variable Retune Speed and Humanize controls provide an entirely new level of natural, realistic pitch correction. And with our unique Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation, stunning new vocal effects are only a mouse click away.
Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX 3 provides Antares' world-renown real-time pitch correction as well as the iconic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect. Just set the key and scale of your track, adjust the Retune Speed for your desired effect, and Auto-Tune EFX 3 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 Auto-Tune EFX 3 is a fully adjustable Retune Speed control that lets you fine tune Auto-Tune EFX 3’s pitch processing for any performance. And its new Humanize function provides pitch correction that is even more natural and realistic.
Like Auto-Tune 7, Auto-Tune EFX 3's pitch correction works by continuously tracking the pitch of your vocal and comparing it to the notes in a (customizable) scale. The scale note closest to the input pitch is identified as the target note. If your vocal's pitch exactly matches the target note, no correction is applied. If your vocal's pitch varies from the target note, either sharp or flat, the output pitch is smoothly corrected to the target note.
The new variable Retune Speed control lets you fine tune the desired effect for your track, from subtle natural pitch correction to the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect.
The new Humanize function ensures that short notes are effectively corrected while sustained notes are allowed to preserve their subtle pitch variations for the most natural, realistic pitch correction.
Auto-Tune Vocal Effect
The Auto-Tune Vocal Effect is what is technically known as “pitch quantization.” Instead of allowing all of the small variations in pitch and the gradual transitions between notes that are a normal part of singing, the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect limits each note to an exact pitch, stripping out any variation, as well as forcing instantaneous transitions between notes.
Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation
Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation is a unique effect that adds 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.
Create Your Own Auto-Motion Patterns
With Auto-Tune EFX 3, you're not limited just to our Auto-Motion patterns. Since Auto-Tune EFX 3's patterns are stored in standard MusicXML format, you can use any application that can open and edit MusicXML files (and there are free open source apps that can do that) to edit existing patterns and create entirely new patterns of your own. So your vocal tracks can always feature your own unique Auto-Motion effects.
