Harmony

Likely the most popular and impressive of our effects suite, Harmony creates up to 8 voices of harmony (varies by product), based on your vocal input and surrounds you with professional sounding backup singers.

Once you’ve added harmony to your performance, we think you’ll never want to sing without it.

For more information on harmony and musical theory, check out: Wikipedia Harmony

Double

Doubling creates an effect that makes your voice sound “larger” in the mix.

It’s an extremely popular effect in a wide variety of musical styles from Pop to Hip-Hop and everything in between.

Delay

Also known as Echo, delay repeats the input sound in various ways, from single “taps” to multiple panned asynchronous repeats.

Often, delay is mistaken for reverb in a song. It’s typical in a recording to use a small amount of both delay and reverb to create the desired spatial effect.

Reverb

Short for Reverberation, reverb simulates an acoustic space like a concert hall or a bathroom.

Typically, slower songs use longer reverb and faster songs use shorter reverb.

HardTune

Some people know it as the Cher or T-Pain effect. We call it Hard Tune. It’s a very aggressive form of pitch correction that forces the voice to “jump” from one note to the next in an almost robotic way.

The effect works the best when confined to a set scale, where the intervals between notes are more noticeable.

To get the most out of the effect, you’ll need to adapt your singing style to help accentuate the way that your voice shifts from note to note. Try sliding between notes.

Transducer

Any effect that provides overdrive, distortion or filter falls under Transducer effects. You’ll find effects like Megaphone, Radio, Amplifier Emulation and more here.

Always take care when using transducer effects in a live situation. Due to the extreme gains and eq’s imparted on the signal, these effects are very prone to feedback.
