    A quick, easy, affordable tool for real-time pitch-correction and creating the "Cher" vocal effect.

    Powered by the same groundbreaking Evo Voice Processing Technology as Antares' Auto-Tune evo, the latest generation of a worldwide standard in professional vocal pitch correction, Auto-Tune efx makes Antares-quality pitch processing accessible to anyone engaged in computer-based audio recording.

    Designed to make almost everything automatic, Auto-Tune efx provides two different flavors of the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect as well as real-time pitch correction. Just select your desired effect type, set the key and scale of your track, and Auto-Tune efx does the rest. For songs with complex chord progressions or modulations, you can optionally set up custom scales or use your host's automation facility to allow the processing of virtually any vocal line.

    Auto-Tune Vocal Effect
    Made wildly popular by Cher and many other artists in virtually every genre of popular music, the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect is what is technically known as "pitch quantization." Instead of allowing all of the small variations in pitch and the gradual transitions between notes that are a normal part of singing, the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect limits each note to an exact pitch, stripping out any variation, as well as forcing instantaneous transitions between a singer's notes.

    Pitch Correction
    Like Auto-Tune evo, Auto-Tune efx pitch correction works by continuously tracking the pitch of your vocal and comparing it to the notes in a (customizable) scale. The scale note closest to the input pitch is identified as the target note. If your vocal's pitch exactly matches the target note, no correction is applied. If your vocal pitch varies from the target note, either sharp or flat, the output pitch is smoothly corrected to the singer's target note.

    Features

    • Hard EFX for the classic Auto-Tune Vocal Effect popularized by Cher and many others
    • Soft EFX is a variation of the Auto-Tune Vocal Effect that allows slight pitch variations and slightly less instant note transitions
    • Pitch Correct provides high-quality, real-time correction of intonation problems, while preserving all the expressive nuance of the original performance
    • Key and Scale Menus set the key and scale (major, minor, or chromatic) of your track
    • Note buttons let you customize your scale for a variety of effects, and to accommodate any song's harmonic structure

    Get the same type of vocal effects and pitch correction as the professionals. Order Auto-Tune EFX!

    I used the free 15 day trial download from their website. This took a mediocre sounding vocal track and made it sound much, much better. I am blown away. I actually prefer this over the EVO. I'm not sure if I will buy this or the AVP processor (so I can use it live).

    Wish I would have tried the demo first and saved my money... pretty big pain in the neck to install/authroize, (need to set up iLok account, send various e-mails, etc.)... then after all that grief it makes your voice sound like a robot no matter what setting you put it on! I was looking for some nice natural pitch correction, but it introduces all kinds of bizarre artifacts and Cher/Robot sounds. Waste of time.

    It ain't THAT bad!

    Comments about Antares Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Effect & Pitch Correction Plug-In:

    It IS decent for the money, and a good way to get into auto-tune. You may want to move up (as I did), or not. Once you're in the "Auto-Tune" family, they'll send you special deals on upgrades. Just hold out for one of the better ones.
    Limited features, but for what it is (a dummy version), and for the money, it works fine. I started with it, but have since moved up to the "Evo" version. I knew that it needed an iLock, not sure what through the others off.
    Once again, for what it's made to do (hands-off kinda "automatic" auto-tune", it's decent ... and cheap. Beats pitching every note by hand!
    Decent for the money

    Neat

    By alex nackman

    Comments about Antares Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Effect & Pitch Correction Plug-In:

    For the money, it's a no-brainer if you're looking for an easy, intuitive auto-tune plug-in. This is a nice little plug-in that can sound quite good if used properly (i.e. your vocals need to be somewhat decent for the auto-tune to sound natural, obviously). For those complaining about the need for an iLok, welcome to the world of sounding recording in 2011. iLoks have been the industry standard for authorizing plug-ins over the last 7 years or so; nothing new. Where have you been? In addition to the iLok, you'll also need a computer, a mouse, and a keyboard (though I'm not certain Antares specifically mentions these things on their site).

    My only critique of the plug-in is that you can't really calibrate anything on it. The plug-in is either on or off, with not much tweaking ability in between.

    Poor business practice

    By Laurel-8cVet

    from Durham NC

    Comments about Antares Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Effect & Pitch Correction Plug-In:

    You will need to purchase a key to use this product. There isn't any clear indications on the website that you need to purchase anything else to make this product work. Obviously Anteres is just as poor with their product as well because the indication on the box is in very small print on the back of the box. I think I will see if I can make the same product so that I can put them out of business.

    are you kidding me!!!!

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Antares Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Effect & Pitch Correction Plug-In:

    I wish i could write a review on this piece but due to the fact that i do not have an iLok key i am unable to. The icing on the cake is that they say you have ten days to use it before you have to register it but thats only if you didnt download the demo prior to purchasing it, what a joke. last piece of antares software i will ever buy!

    Actual cost = $150

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Antares Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Effect & Pitch Correction Plug-In:

    This product requires an additional purchase of a $40 iLok dongle to run. It is not disclosed clearly in the product description. I have contacted customer service to address this omission. Meanwhile I bomb the review as I cannot install without the $40 part. Thanks Antares for that.

    You have to use a dongle to make this software work. It's so bothersome you wish you never bought the software.

    Easy to get the TPAIN FX

    By RAS-tV8As

    from Chicago

    Comments about Antares Auto-Tune EFX Vocal Effect & Pitch Correction Plug-In:

    Thought it is being overused right now, there no denying that the Tpain FX is hot right now and if you own a studio and wish to please your clients you ghot to give the people what they want. I bought this and its easy to use and does just what it says. Following around with the notes and scales really give a lot of variance in the final results. cool piece and worth a $100.
