The NAMM 2018 conference is in full effect and there are a number of new studio tools being unveiled by a number of different companies. One of the stand-out pieces revealed this year is by Antares – the leader in vocal processing. The much-used and much-abused vocal processor AutoTune has been re-released with a Pro version.
This is touted as the newest and most advanced version of the industry-standard vocal pitch correction tool. With a new interface and a number of new user-requested features the Pro version will also feature a more streamlined workflow.
According to SonicState:
Auto-Tune’s updated interface lets you work faster and smarter, whether you’re in Automatic or Graphical mode. The included Auto-Key plug-in provides automatic key detection. Auto-Tune Pro also includes ARA support with compatible VST3 DAWs. A new Settings menu includes commonly used preferences for session-specific settings. Other new features include MIDI CC control of parameters in Automatic Mode and HiDPI support for Retina and other high-resolution displays.
The new Pro version of your favorite rapper’s favorite plugin will be available sometime in the next couple of months. It will retail for $399 USD. Anyone that purchased the previous version of AutoTune after January 1, 2018 will get a free upgrade to the Pro version.
