This easy-to-use vocal harmonizer software can help you generate up to 5-part harmonies from a single vocal line.

  • Chord by MIDI: Define your harmony in real time via a MIDI controller or pre-recorded MIDI track
  • MIDI Omni: Directly play the four harmony voices as if they were voices of a synth or sampler
  • MIDI Channel: Use four separate MIDI channels for absolute control over each note of your vocal arrangement
  • Spread and Register controls that allow you to quickly and intuitively set the pitch range and harmony style of your vocal arrangement
  • Humanize functions that provide selectable amounts of variation to each harmony voice for realistic, natural sounding results

This is a great product for the price, but you have to know how to use it to get the results you're looking for. Don't expect it to magically make a mediocre vocal performance sound over the top using a preset, but do expect it to make realistic harmonies on a decent performance.

Harmony efx was obviously offered by Antares to make the buyer want to upgrade to the more expensive and extensive Harmony EVO, which it might do if I could get it to work. The actual harmony vocals it produces aren't tonally bad and would probably be usable with a little tweaking if they'd actually sing the correct notes. The only two ways I saw in the instructions to make it do this were to program in every chord change complete with each inversion, then use automation to make the changes at the correct places--an extremely time consuming process in all--or by using MIDI. I chose the MIDI route and programmed the harmonies I wanted onto a MIDI track pretty quickly. Unfortunately, the harmonies that Harmony EFX played back came and went sporadically and were completely unusable. I asked for help on their forum a week ago, but have received no replies. I also use another company's similar software, and this Antares software is no competition for it in usability. Sad, because tonally it creates better sounding harmonies.

    Comments about Antares Harmony EFX Software:

    If somebody would create a Youtube video walking through the steps for the installation of this software onto a computer it would help. It's very frustrating to try to install a program every day for over two weeks without success. I can't recommend this product to anyone because it hasn't worked for me.

      I already have a couple of auto-tune devices for my studio and I find them very useful. I saw this on sale and couldn't resist. Then I realized that YOU CANNOT USE this product without an ILOK USB KEY which I had to buy at full price. Unless you already have an ILOK, this is NOT A VALUE/DEAL!

            As soon as I recieved it, I was so excited to use it, and then found out that I needed to spend another fifty to "open" the user licence. It would be nice if things that REQUIRE an ILOK, would have that in a bit larger print and closer to the top of the page. Needless to say, I still have not used my new program as I am now waiting on an ILOK. This is not a stage applicable program, it is for post production as far as I can tell by reading the instruction manual.

            I bought this on sale. Most good products have stopped using iLok as it is a terrible way to do copy protection. This is an entry level product so there is no need for an additional cost to use the product.

            Comments about Antares Harmony EFX Software:

            I got this when it was featured as the Stupid Deal of the Day, and I'm sort of regretting it. First, you need an iLok to use it after the 10-day trial expires (which is ok, if the iLok wasn't a huge pain in the butt to get). When I finally got the chance to use this on Logic Pro, the results sounded terrible. No matter how drastically you tweak the naturalizing settings, you get an autotuned piece of garbage. The manual doesn't provide much help for dialing in certain settings for particular applications/uses. I understand that this is the cheap, entry-level version of the same type of software, but if you're looking for clean, natural sounding harmonies, don't get this software. Sing them yourself.
