Ab­stract vo­cal ef­fects with Har­mony En­gine Evo

One aspect of the track that Matt’s par­tic­u­larly proud of is the weird and won­der­ful vo­cal ef­fect cre­ated with Antares Har­mony En­gine Evo.

“Now this is in­ter­est­ing!” he en­thuses. “It’s kind of a Bon Iver-style har­moniser made by Antares, who make Auto-Tune, and it’s been great for me – it’s re­ally cool. I’ve used it on here in the cho­rus. I used this on a remix for Dua Lipa, and it’s the pre­set from that, which I’ve saved. The ef­fect is ac­tu­ally trig­gered via MIDI and I’ve muted the passthrough of the orig­i­nal au­dio, so we’ve got a four-part har­mony that can be played in MIDI. It’s great be­cause you can ad­just the spread, and change the regis­ter. That’s been bounced and it sits be­hind the cho­rus in the mix; it just gives it a bit of a back­bone there.”
