Waves Now Shipping New Vocal Bender Plugin

by | Feb 17, 2021 | Audio, Gear, News, Production

Waves Audio announces that it’s now shipping Vocal Bender. This new plugin is designed to provide real-time voice manipulation that’s equipped with two simple Pitch and Formant controls for tracking, mixing and performing pitch-shifted vocals.

Users can track through the plugin, so they can hear the pitch and formant effects on the voice as it tracks. Vocal Bender can also be utilized in live performances — pull it up on a live DAW session and manipulate the live vocal sound.

In addition to the main Pitch and Formant controls, the plugin also has a “Flatten” feature designed to lock into a single pitch and sound robotic. Users can also open up Vocal Bender’s trunk to access four extra modulators, including LFO and sequencing. A Mix knob is also provided for blending harmonies and doubles on inserts.

Vocal Bender is included in Waves Mercury, Pro Show and SD7 Pro Show bundles. Go here for more specifics.
