Overview

Antares AVOX 2 is the second generation of the Antares Vocal Toolkit, which builds on the power of the original AVOX plug-in vocal software bundle. This new version adds an additional five state-of-the-art vocal processing modules, including the Harmony Engine Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator, to give musicians, producers, and engineers the ability to create stunning vocal tracks in any musical style. It also lets you design unique vocal effects for audio post-production applications.

The AVOX 2 Antares Vocal Toolkit includes:

Harmony Engine Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator

Harmony Engine is a real-time harmony generating plug-in that puts professional-quality vocal harmony arrangements within reach of any songwriter, producer, musician, or engineer. With four independent harmony voices, a variety of powerful harmony generating modes, humanization features for natural sounding performances, and a flexible real-time preset system for harmony and vocal type, Harmony Engine provides incredibly easy-to-use tools to quickly and easily produce virtually any vocal arrangement you can imagine.

Whether you're an experienced vocal arranger, a songwriter looking for that perfect backup vocal, or a composer experimenting with unique vocal effects, Harmony Engine gives you entirely new ways to create the harmony parts you hear in your head. Experimenting with different harmonies is easy, and you may find yourself using Harmony Engine to explore harmonic alternatives you may have never otherwise considered.

MUTATOR Extreme Voice Designer

MUTATOR provides a combination of tools for creating unusual, weird, or downright wacky voices. With high-quality pitch shifting, throat modeling, pitch-tracking ring modulator-based "Mutation," and a mind- bending Alienization function, MUTATOR is the tool to use for unique vocal special effects and post-production sound design.

ARTICULATOR Vocal Formant and Amplitude Modeler

The alien offspring of a vocoder and a modern-day version of the venerable talk box, ARTICULATOR lets you extract the formant and amplitude information from a vocal (or other dynamic source). Then you can apply it to any other audio track or to a built-in broadband noise generator. It works with talking guitars, singing synths, whispering voices, and a wide range of special effects.

WARM Tube Saturation Generator

Based on Antares' Tube plug-in, WARM warms up vocals with Antares' analog tube modeling technology, while being so processing-efficient that you can put an instance on pretty much every track in a project and still barely see your CPU meter twitch. With two tube models, a variable Drive control to set just the right amount of dynamic saturation, and the innovative OmniTube function to apply the tube effect to the entire signal (as opposed to just the transients), WARM is a simplistic tool for giving your vocals the benefits of a wide range of modeled analog tube effects.

ASPIRE Aspiration Noise Processor

ASPIRE is for modifying a voice's breathiness independently of its harmonic content. Whether reducing a bit of vocal rasp or adding a bit of smokiness, ASPIRE allows modification of the amount and quality of a voice's aspiration noise without otherwise affecting the vocal's harmonic characteristics. When you speak or sing, air from your lungs is forced through your vocal chords, causing them to vibrate. The resulting waveform is propagated through the throat, the mouth, and out through the lips. It is the shape of these structures that create the resonant characteristics that define a unique vocal identity.

Aspiration noise presents itself in a variety of ways, from a subtle bit of breathiness to a full-blown rasp. Of course, whether it's a problem or not depends on the amount of noise and the style of a performance. A whole lot of roughness that would work well for screaming punk or roots blues might well be a problem for mainstream pop or a smooth ballad. With ASPIRE, you can adjust the vocals to the way you want it.

THROAT Physical Modeling Vocal Designer

THROAT is a radical new vocal tool that lets you process a vocal through a meticulously crafted physical model of the human vocal tract. THROAT begins by neutralizing the effect of the original singer's vocal tract and then gives you the ability to specify the characteristics of the modeled vocal tract. Its controls allow you to modify the voice's glottal waveform as well as globally stretch, shorten, widen, or constrict the modeled vocal tract. For even more detailed control, its graphical Throat Shaping display allows you to individually adjust the position and width of five points in the vocal tract model, from the vocal cords, through the throat, mouth, and out to the lips. Finally, THROAT's Breathiness controls let you add variable frequency noise to the model, resulting in a range of vocal effects from subtle breathiness, to raspiness, to a full whisper.

While THROAT has been designed to allow subtle modifications to a voice's vocal quality, the range of the controls also allows the creation of vocal tract models well beyond the limits of physical human anatomy, offering the possibility of vocal characteristics that are simply unattainable by any other means.

DUO Vocal Modeling Auto-Doubler

DUO automatically generates a doubled vocal part from an existing vocal. In addition to allowing programmable variation in pitch, timing, and vibrato depth for even more realism, DUO also includes a simplified version of THROAT's vocal modeling to provide timbral variation for the doubled part. DUO's output section gives you independent control of the level and stereo position of the original and doubled voices.

CHOIR Vocal Multiplier

Neither a harmonizer nor a conventional chorus effect, CHOIR is a processor that actually turns a single voice into 4, 8, 16, or 32 distinct individual unison voices, each with its own pitch, timing, and vibrato variations. The voices can, if desired, be spread across the stereo spectrum. Assign an instance of CHOIR to each of four voices singing four-part harmony and voilĀ , instant choir.

PUNCH Vocal Impact Enhancer

PUNCH is a processor that, as its name so ably implies, lets you give your vocals more dynamic impact, allowing it to cut through a dense mix with clarity and power. Combining advanced dynamic processing with an incredibly easy-to-use interface, PUNCH gives professional results while letting you focus on your music.

SYBIL Variable Frequency De-Esser
SYBIL tames vocal sibilance with a flexible compressor with threshold, ratio, attack, and decay controls as well as a variable high-pass frequency to match any vocal performance.
