Think about it...
The singer has just wrapped up an amazing take. The phrasing, the emotion, the delivery, it’s all there. But there are notes you’d like to change, and others that need to be fixed. You need perfect pitch transformation. You need precision realtime editing capabilities. You need Waves Tune. With full ReWire support, formant correction, and an extensive palette of pitch shaping tools, Waves Tune lets you do all your editing right there within your DAW environment—no need to export sections or work offline. Better sounding and more flexible than any other pitch correction processor, Waves Tune will get your vocals back on track.
If you want to automatically tune a vocal track, Waves Tune will make the changes as gently or as aggressively as you like, using the default parameters or your own personalized settings.
Select your singer’s range (Generic, Bass, Baritone, Tenor, Alto, Mezzo Soprano, or Soprano) or change the range manually as needed. Select the Root Note and Scale, and Waves Tune will correct to the notes in that key. Choose from dozens of scales, from Blues and Bebop to Hindustani Bilawal and everything in between. Or create your own custom scales, and have Waves Tune correct to adjacent notes. You can even bypass notes entirely, leaving them “as is.” Then, set and save your favorite scales as user presets.
Waves Tune’s default correction is so good it may be all you need. But when you need to get down to the fine details, that‘s when Waves Tune’s awesome power and ease of use really shine.
||Speed determines how long |
it takes for Waves Tune to
kick in at the beginning of
a note; the slower the rate,
the gentler the correction.
Faster speeds create even
more radical results.

knob and you'll see the
connection between notes
become smoother at slower
speeds and more angular
at higher rates, for clean
glides or distinct jumps

pitch correction. Turning it

Use the Scissors tool to cut notes into segments which can be moved or manipulated independently.
Use the Glue tool to combine multiple notes into one.
Use the Line tool to draw precise lines and angles by defining beginning and end points. Great for glissandos!
Click-drag on the Curve tool to move the correction curve up or down while maintaining the natural pitch contour.
Use the Pencil tool to manually redraw the correction curve.
Use the Zoom tool to get a close-up view for detail work.

Work Anywhere in Your Vocal Track Without Limits or Exporting
By harnessing the power of ReWire, Waves Tune |
provides instant access to all playback functions
including looping and scrolling. Now, there’s no
need to export your track for processing or to
separate a chunk of your file to work on. Play
cursor position and loop points can be set at any
time to any session location, using your host or
Waves Tune’s transport controls. Set the Timeline
Ruler to Bars/Beats, Minutes/Seconds, or Samples
for pinpoint navigation.
Change that tune
||Let’s say you want to go beyond correction. Maybe your |
vocalist finished on an “A”, but you think going up to a “C”
would be more dramatic. No problem. Waves Tune represents
each individual note as an orange block. To change the pitch,
just use the Note Tool to grab the orange block and drag it up
or down on the piano-roll grid. Waves Tune’s advanced
formant correction keeps the tone sounding completely
natural, even on wide intervals. Use the keyboard graphic to
hear your target note before you choose it.
If there are several notes you’d like to change into one note,
the Glue Tool will combine them. Or to divide a single note,
just snip it into two or more segments using the Scissors Tool.
Export the notes of your track as a perfect MIDI file, and have
a synthesizer or sampler to follow a vocal’s every move—
including pitch bends. Or trigger Waves Tune using an
external MIDI keyboard. Waves Tune will override the Notes
Grid while you’re playing, and will return to normal functioning
once the MIDI input stops.
Waves Tune has the ability to not only detect natural |
vibrato, but to manipulate it as well—naturally. Click on
the Natural Vibrato button and Waves Tune will highlight
natural vibrato in pink. If you’d like to increase or
decrease it, just adjust the Attack and Amount
parameters, and you’ll see the Pitch Curve become flatter
or wavier, giving you more or less of your vocal’s natural
vibrato. And if you need a totally smooth, precise vibrato
or an extreme vocal effect, click on the Synth Vibrato. Its
precision controls let you determine Waveform, Depth,
Predelay, Attack, and Rate.
Waves Tune. It will change the way you work.
