Powered by the same groundbreaking Evo Voice Processing Technology as Antares' Auto-Tune Evo, the latest generation of a worldwide standard in professional vocal pitch correction, Auto-Tune EFX makes Antares-quality pitch processing accessible to anyone engaged in computer-based audio recording.
Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune EFX provides two different flavors of the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect as well as 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.
Auto-Tune Vocal Effect
Made wildly popular by T-Pain, Cher, and many other artists in virtually every genre of popular music, 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 a singer's notes.
Like Auto-Tune Evo, Auto-Tune EFX 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 pitch varies from the target note, either sharp or flat, the output pitch is smoothly corrected to the singer's target note.
Harmony EFX vocal harmony software is a streamlined version of Antares' industry-leading Harmony Engine Evo Vocal Modeling Harmony Generator. Based on the same groundbreaking Evo Voice Processing Technology as its big brother, Harmony EFX puts professional quality vocal harmony arrangements within reach of any musician or engineer. Whether you're an experienced vocal arranger, a songwriter looking for that perfect backup singer, or a composer experimenting with unique vocal effects, Antares Harmony EFX gives you entirely new ways to create the harmony parts you hear in your head. This easy-to-use vocal harmonizer software can help you generate up to 5-part harmonies from a single vocal line.
Mic Modeler EFX
Using patented Spectral Shaping Tool technology, Antares have created precise digital models of a wide variety of historical classic and exotic microphones. Simply tell Mic Mod EFX what microphone you are actually using and what microphone you'd like it to sound like. It's as simple as that.
With over 125 microphones models included in Mic Mod EFX, you can afford to record each track through a model of the specific mic that will best produce that ideal sound you're looking for. Or use it in live performance to get the sound of mics you'd never consider using on stage. You can even use it during mixdown to effectively change the mic on an already recorded track.
Not only do the models reproduce all of the subtle sonic characteristics that make each microphone unique, but they also give you control of each mic's specific options. Does the mic have a low-cut filter? If so, it's in the model. Wind screen on or off? Close or far placement? Each option results in the same sonic effect that it would have with the actual modeled mic. And for that final touch of perfection, you can even add some tasty tube saturation.
Source Mic and Modeled Mic
Simply select the mic you're using (or used during your original recording) and the mic you want it to sound like.
Proximity Effect is a bass boost that results from placing a directional mic in close proximity to a signal source (e.g., a singer's lips). With Mic Mod EFX's Proximity controls, you can actually create the effects of different mic distances based on the specific physical properties of each individual modeled mic.
Low Cut Filter
If your source mic has a low cut filter, enter its setting in the Source Mic Low Cut menu. If your selected modeled mic has a low cut filter, you can model the effects of any of its settings with the Modeled Mic Low Cut menu.
If your source mic has variable pickup patterns, enter the selected pattern in the Source Mic Pattern menu. If your selected modeled mic has variable pickup patterns, you can experiment with the effects of any of its patterns with the Modeled Mic Pattern menu.
Based on the same technology as Antares' famed WARM Tube Saturation Generator, the Tube Saturation control lets you give your track the warmth of a high-quality tube pre-amp.

The #1 thing I like about this software is that it comes with several in depth video tutorials of how to operate each plugin. It also gives you several mp3's to show examples of what can be done!! The only negative is that you have to buy an iLock separately. The description does say one is required for authorization but I thought that meant it was included but had to plugged in to use the software. So note: if you don't have an iLock, order one at the same time so you can get started as soon as you get the software.
