Antares Auto Tune Vocal Studio Native Software
The Fastest, Easiest-To-Use, Highest-Quality Tool for Correcting Pitch.
AutoTune Vocal Studio Native combines AutoTune Evo, the worldwide standard in professional pitch correction, with AVOX Evo, the latest generation of the Antares Vocal Toolkit (now including Harmony Engine Evo). Together, they provide a comprehensive suite of tools for producing world-class vocal tracks.
For most common pitch problems, Auto-Tune Evo's Automatic Mode instantaneously detects the pitch of the input, identifies the closest pitch in a user-specified scale (including minor, major, chromatic and 26 historical and microtonal scales), and corrects the input pitch to match the scale pitch. A Retune Speed control lets you match the retune rate to virtually any performance style.
For meticulous tweaking, the Graphical Mode displays the performance's detected pitch envelope and allows you to specify the desired pitch using a variety of graphics tools. This mode gives complete control over the correction or modification of the most elaborate expressive gestures.
Auto-Tune is used daily by thousands of audio professionals around the world. Whether to save studio and editing time, ease the frustration of endless retakes, to save that otherwise once-in-a-lifetime performance, or to create striking special effects, Auto-Tune Evo is the tool of choice.
Prepare to be amazed.
New Auto Tune EVO Features Include:
Dramatically enhanced core technology: Evo Voice Processing Technology takes advantage of the power of today's computers to provide powerful new features and enhanced tracking and correction capabilities.
Redesigned user interface: Continuing the process begun with Auto-Tune 5, we have again refined the Auto-Tune user interface to allow for smoother, more intuitive workflow.
Reorganized common controls: With the addition of the new pitch shifting, formant correction, and throat modeling capabilities, we have reorganized the common control area to ensure that all of the parameters used by both Automatic and Graphical correction modes are easily available at all times.
Real-time pitch shifting (Native versions only): Auto-Tune Evo’s new Transpose control provides extremely high-quality real-time pitch shifting over a two-octave range (+/- one octave in semi-tone increments).
Formant correction (Native versions only): While Auto-Tune’s classic pitch adjustment technology still provides the optimum results for the very small intervals typical of conventional pitch correction, for larger intervals or outright pitch-shifting, engaging Auto-Tune Evo’s Formant Correction function preserves vocal character over a much wider pitch-shift range.
Throat modeling (Native versions only): Utilizing the latest incarnation of Antares’ unique throat modeling technology, the new Throat Length control actually allows you to modify vocal character by passing it through a variable-length physical model of the human vocal tract.
Resizable Graphical Mode window: In most hosts, Auto-Tune Evo’s Graphical Mode window can be resized in real-time, limited only by the size of your monitor. (In hosts that don’t support real-time resizing, the window size can be set in the Options dialog. In VST hosts, resizing is limited to a maximum size of 1600 x 1200 pixels - still not too shabby.) .
New Note-based pitch correction and pitch shifting: In addition to Lines and Curves, Auto-Tune Evo introduces an entirely new method of pitch editing: Note Objects. Clicking the Make Notes button causes Auto-Tune Evo to analyze the tracked audio and create graphic representations of the target notes (which can be fine-tuned with the Number of Note Objects control). These objects can then easily be edited, shifted in pitch, and individually pitch corrected or retuned. New Note Objects can be drawn with the new Notes Tool, and the transitions between Notes can easily be customized with the Curve Tool.
Auto-Tune Vocal Toolkit
Object-based Retune Speed settings: In one of Auto-Tune Evo’s functionally most powerful changes, Retune Speed is now an independent property of each individual correction object (Curve, Line or Note). Since each object can have its own Retune Speed setting, you will no longer need to automate Retune Speed to get the optimum rate for each note of a performance.
Customizable object-based default Retune Speeds: Since you will typically use different pitch correction objects for different tasks (e.g., traditional pitch correction, pitch shifting, T-Pain-style effects, etc.), you can streamline your workflow by setting your own custom default Retune Speeds for each type of object (i.e., Curves, Lines, and Notes) in the Options dialog.
Real-time display of output pitch: In addition to Auto-Tune’s traditional Tracked Pitch, Line, and Curve plots, Auto-Tune Evo provides a new Output Pitch plot that displays the exact output pitch based on the current Retune Speed. This plot updates in real time as you adjust the Retune Speed, so there’s never any doubt about the precise effect of each setting.
Comprehensive programmable keyboard shortcuts: Auto-Tune Evo’s new Key Binding system lets you assigned virtually any Graphical Mode function to each of the QWERTY number keys (i.e., the number keys across the top of your keyboard). So no matter what your personal editing workflow, you can ensure that your most-used functions are always only a key press away.
New Pitch Graph display mode: The new Lanes display mode is particularly useful when using Note Objects for pitch correction or pitch-shifting individual notes.
Global transposition, formant correction, and throat modeling: As described up in the Automatic Mode features, these functions are also available when working in Graphical Mode.
Graphical Paste function: The new Paste function displays a graphic representation of your copied data and lets you visually place it at the desired destination before finalizing the Paste. (Perfect for copying Note Object-based edits to other parts of a track.)
Enhanced pitch displays: Auto-Tune Evo provides simultaneous displays of Tracked Pitch, Correction Object Pitch, and the resulting Output Pitch at the current cursor location.
Nudge controls for pitch correction objects: To aid precise editing, the new Nudge controls let you move selected object(s) up or down in precise one pixel increments.

With 2 tube models, a variable Drive control to set just the right amount of dynamic saturation, and an innovative OmniTube function to apply the tube effect to the entire signal (as opposed to just the transients), WARM is a great-sounding, incredibly easy-to-use tool for giving your vocals the benefits of a wide range of modeled analog tube effects.
ASPIRE Evo Aspiration Noise Processor
ASPIRE Evo is the world's first tool 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 Evo 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.
But going into a bit more detail, the vocal waveform is actually a combination of 2 different components. One, the one we usually think of as the primary element of vocal timbre, is the harmonic content generated by the process described above. However, there is a second component that is generated by the turbulence of the air rushing past the vocal chords. This component, aspiration noise, does not have harmonic content and can roughly be thought of as breathiness.
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 (of course, it also might not). Up to now, there wasn't much you could do about it. Now, with ASPIRE Evo, there is.
THROAT Evo Physical Modeling Vocal Designer
THROAT Evo is a revolutionary new vocal tool that lets you process a vocal through a meticulously crafted physical model of the human vocal tract. THROAT Evo 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.
THROAT Evo's 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, THROAT Evo's graphical Throat Shaping display allows you to individually adjust the position and width of 5 points in the vocal tract model, from the vocal chords, through the throat, mouth, and out to the lips. THROAT Evo'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. Finally, THROAT Evo allows you to shift the pitch of the voice up or down an octave to create a wide range of alternative vocal characters.
While THROAT Evo 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 Evo Vocal Modeling Auto-Doubler
DUO Evo 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 Evo also includes a simplified version of THROAT Evo's vocal modeling to provide timbral variation for the doubled part. DUO Evo's output section gives you independent control of the level and stereo position of the original and doubled voices.
CHOIR Evo Vocal Multiplier
Neither a harmonizer nor a conventional chorus effect, CHOIR Evo is a unique 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 Evo to each of 4 voices singing 4-part harmony and voil&aagrave;, instant choir.
PUNCH Evo Vocal Impact Enhancer
PUNCH Evo is a unique processor that, as its name implies, lets you quickly and easily give your vocal 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 Evo gives professional results while letting you focus on your music.
