Antares has released Auto-Tune Artist. The pitch correction plug-in, which was formerly known as Auto-Tune Live, is optimized for low-latency performance and aimed at musicians who like to use Auto-Tune during tracking or live performances.
Antares Auto-Tune Artist
In the lineup of Antares pitch correction plug-ins, Auto-Tune Artist takes the spot between Auto-Tune Pro and Auto-Tune EFX+. It uses the same pitch correction algorithm as Auto-Tune Pro, with a focus on real-time performance and low latency. If you like to apply Auto-Tune while you’re singing, whether it’s live or in the studio, this is the version for you, according to Antares.
The plug-in features a new user interface, which has been redesigned to make it easier to use, Antares says. There’s a basic view for when you’re in a hurry, and an advanced view where you can get into the details. They’ve also included Flex Tune for more natural and transparent-sounding pitch correction. Furthermore, there’s a Classic mode, bringing back the sound of Auto-Tune 5, which continues to have a lot of fans.
Other features of Auto-Tune Artist include Humanize, which preserves subtle variations on sustained notes, Antares claims. Automatic formant Ccrrection, adjustable throat modeling, real-time MIDI control, and vibrato controls round off the list of features.
Price and compatibility
Antares Auto-Tune Artist is available for Windows 8.1 or higher and macOS 10.10.5 or higher in VST3, AU, and AAX formats (64-bit). The plug-in costs USD 299. Upgrading from Auto-Tune Live or Auto-Tune EFX will set you back USD 99, the upgrade from Auto-Tune Access is USD 199. A demo version is available.
