Real-time vocal harmonizer, alternative to Vocal Transformer

I've been using the Vocal Transformer plug-in in Logic/MainStage to layer my vocal in real-time, by using the "robotize" function to keep wet signal to a pitch (F, F#, G, etc.) while retaining the formants, mixed with the dry to have a choir-like sound (two-part harmony). Also, I've mapped some note...

Re: Real-time vocal pitch harmonizer

Thanks for the reply, exaltron! Right, "harmonizer" sounds like a better term for what I'm looking for -- "robotize" doesn't do justice to the sweet vocal layering that I'm after. OK, I'll dig around and see if I can find the harmonizer that you've made. I haven't much experience with creating/custo...

Re: Sudden audio dropout

** Update after a couple of months ** Well, it seems that the issue is solved by using Live and Kontakt standalone. It appears that Kontakt plugin was the issue -- not sure if the buffer/memory server/ CPU multicore or any other setup parameter within Kontakt plugin was the real culprit, but since I...

Real-time vocal pitch harmonizer

I'm searching for a M4L device (or an AU plugin) that works like Logic's Vocal Transformer, specifically the pitch "robotize" effect. I've been using the Vocal Transformer to layer my vocal, by using the "robotize" function to keep wet signal to a pitch (G, G #, F, etc.) while retaining the formants...

Re: Sudden audio dropout

Too early to tell if it's completely solved (*) but I think I found where the problem is. I had the Echo Audiofire 4 powered by bus, through the firewire cable, but according to a little note I found in the box -- which I must have overlooked when I set up the interface -- the 4-pin connection to th...

Re: Sudden audio dropout

Hi prizzle9, So, according to the support from my audio interface, they recommended the following: 1) Make sure the firmware is up-to-date, and matches the console (if any). 2) Make sure the clock source is set to "device", under Audio Midi Set-up. 3) Try changing the buffer size on the DAW. I tried...

Re: Sudden audio dropout

The Echo support team replied. They said the following: 1) Open your Echo console and make sure your Echo console and Firmware matches (Settings > About). 2) Under Audio Midi Set-Up (Application > Utility), make sure the clock source is set to Device. I did both, the clock source was already set to ...

Re: Sudden audio dropout

Right, that makes sense. The strange thing is that it only happens with DAWs, not music player, for example. I'll have to try to reproduce the problem without Kontakt, to eliminate that possibility... Also, currently I have an external Firewire drive and the audio interface is connected to it. So, a...

Re: Sudden audio dropout

Hi Mage2k, Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, there is a software for the audio interface called Echo Firewire Console. Last I saw, there was no activity on the output channels when the problem was happening. I see, so it might be a driver problem. I will post the same question to Echo's support. I'll...

Sudden audio dropout

Hi All, I would be grateful if anyone can help me. I am experiencing a problem where the audio suddenly drops out, even though the meter on the master output shows activity. There's no pop or glitch, just goes silent. The only way I've found to get the sound back is to restart CoreAudio, by going to...
