Auto-Tune 7's Auto mode

Auto-Tune 7 provides the ability to correct the pitch of a voice or solo instrument in real time, without distortion or artifacts, while preserving all of the expressive nuance of the original performance.

By far the most dramatic addition to Auto-Tune 7 is its new time correction and manipulation system. Integrated into the Graphical mode interface, Auto-Tune 7''s time control capabilities allow users to quickly edit the timing of their vocals right along with their pitch.

Auto-Tune 7 also features the second generation of Antares' Evo™ Voice Processing Technology, offering more natural pitch shifting and throat modeling, the ability to use MIDI to define target notes in Graphical mode, and a host of time-saving workflow enhancements.

Auto-Tune 7''s time-control capabilities combine a high-quality time-shifting algorithm with an intuitive user interface designed to make it quick and easy to correct timing errors. Time-manipulation functions include the ability to move a point in time within a selected range, as well as move a range in time within a larger range. The nondestructive time functions have their own undo/redo controls independent of the pitch-correction controls, and an Enable button that allows users to instantly switch between their original audio and their time-shifted audio.

When tracking pitch in Graphical mode, Auto-Tune 7 will record any MIDI note information routed to it (either from another MIDI track or live from a MIDI controller) and (optionally) display the data on the Pitch Graph display. One can then use the new Make Notes From MIDI function to convert the MIDI information into Note Correction Objects.

Throat Length Adjustment is now an independent property of each individual correction object (Curve, Line or Note). While the overall Throat Length is still set by the master Throat Length knob, each correction object can have its own independent adjustment (either longer or shorter) as desired.

Whenever time control is enabled, the Amplitude Envelope display will show both the original audio and the time-shifted audio, updating in real time as edits are made.

Auto-Tune 7 is available now for RTAS (Mac OS X and PC), VST (Mac OS X and PC) and AU (Mac OS X) at a U.S. MSRP of $399. TDM versions for Mac and PC will be available in November for an MSRP of $649. All Macintosh versions are universal binaries.

Upgrades to Auto-Tune 7 are available for purchase and download by current registered Auto-Tune owners.
