I haven't tried Vertigo, Hamor and Poseidon but will look in to them. Always on the lookout for more VSTs in the area. I couldn't get Alchemy to make the kinds of sounds I wanted. It's no offense to the VST itself. It's probably great, but it just personally do what I wanted straight off the bat. I'm getting better results with this max patch so far. Probably because it only does one thing: shift pitch. I probably could have done that in Alchemy but all the knobs distracted me.
I'll be looking in to Camtasia over the next week or so so I can start posting videos of what I am working on.
Also, I'm now finding that I don't really need "morphing". NI Komplete 7 came with a library called Acoustic Refractions. The actual Absynth patches aren't the greatest. However, the samples themselves are great for what I am trying to do. It has things like Bowed Pianos etc. You can get great harmony out of a marble rolling in a glass bowl if you pitch the second voicing up a fifth. The Acoustice Refractions samples were probably made with EFT in Kontakt which I mentioned a few pages back. The point is, it is possible to do the morphing part outside of the actual performance.
Daws have other appropriate CPU friendly feature called Elastique. It doesn't give better result than that of additive resynthesis but is more CPU friendly. That's why it is used for basic sequencing.
I am a bit perplexed why Samplers don't have a simple toggle button for pitch shifting: Frequency/FFT. But anyway. It's not like FFT is really that hard on your CPU anyway.
