VST Harmonizer Plugin

Does anybody out there know of a great Eventide H3000/949/910 type plugin for VST? There seem to be some for TDM/RTAS, but not VST. It is to be used mostly for basic pitch doubling. I have talked to the people at Audio Damage about theirs, but it doesn't do the more modern cleanish H3000 thing, only the vintage glitchier stuff. Thanks

Waves Doubler works for what you are talking about, that's the one I use.

VST - for basic doubling with random & formants etc, have a look at Clone Ensemble

If you really want full on pitch correction and harmonies etc, I wouldn't trust this to a real-time plugin effect. Melodyne Studio is the way to go, and you get the plugin for free if you buy this. They just announced Direct Note Access a couple of days ago - this is mind blowing technology.

I hear you, Melodyne is great, but I just need a pitch doubler effect.

I guess I should of said inexpensive. The Waves Doubler does a fine job, it's just more than I want to pay, especially after a good sized investment in UAD-1.

If you use the SIR reverb you can then have access to Eventide Impulses - for that matter you could use them with any Impulse plug.

Convolution is static and boring.

Checkout the cloneensemble I mentioned - it's cheap but powerful.

Gear interested
 

Akai Deca Buddy; Antares Harmony; Waves stuff. And all of them produce weak results if you ask me. They are not even in the same league as Eventide.

If you want to hear Eventide pitch shifting hard at work, listen to anything Jodeci or Dru Hill did. WOW. Try THAT with any of the VST plugins out. Good luck.

I am holding out hope for a top notch harmony plugin that can truly emulate an Eventide, and I have to think that one is in the works somewhere. Apparently Melodyne's new technology will be pretty awesome.. but I have a funny feeling harmony voices will sound thin and fake like everything else.. I'll be happy to be wrong about that though

I have used it, it's pretty good at the H3000 thing, but I agree it is not as big. I am also not thrilled with the cost of the Waves stuff. Cheers

i bought the waves musicians bundle 2 for $150 - i thought that was very cheap for the plugs i got - that along the the W1 Wong limiter you really have a great toolkit

the musicians bundle includes waves doubler!

Hey Cam, I agree with you, the Renvox is the one Waves comp I like. The De-esser is good too. Between UAD-1 and Hydratone-Angeltone, I have the comp and EQ thing really handled.
