VirSyn’s Harmony Eight is on my list to try out, but even before I got there they’ve updated it just 12 days post launch. Here’s what’s new:
- New pitch shifting algorithms for transient and drum sounds
- Smooth tape style emulation of delay and tempo changes
- MIDI Learn for harmony parameters fixed
- Equalizer GUI update problem fixed
Another interesting app from VirSyn. They seem to be getting very good at making intriguing apps for us, and Harmony Eight is no different.
Here are the details:
Up to eight pitch shifted voices are created from vocal input or instruments. Separate algorithms for optimal shifting of vocals/monophonic instruments and for any other kind of audio.
Position each voice in space ( left and right / front and back ). Modify the voice character from male to female and vice versa. Pitch shift each voice in the range of +/- one octave with preserving of formants for natural sound. Applying separate feedback delays on each voice creates complex rhythmical patterns.
- 8 Voice Pitch Shifter with formant correction
- Optional shifting algorithm for polyphonic sounds
- 8 Independent delay lines with optional sync
- Spatial voice positioning
- Parametric Equalizer
- Integrated Compressor/Limiter/Noise Gate
- Ensemble effect
- Reverb effect
- AudioUnit for AUv3 compatible hosts.
- Inter-app audio compatible effect.
- Audiobus 2 compatible with state saving.
- Support for Ableton Link
- Low latency live usage with mic and headphones.
- Audio recorder
