IZo­tope Vo­cal Dou­bler

Computer Music - - News -

Do your vo­cal tracks sound thin? Are your dou­ble-track­ing at­tempts fall­ing flat? Or sharp, for that mat­ter? Maybe you need a killer clone of your­self. Or maybe you’ve got a fan­tas­tic vo­cal per­for­mance from a ses­sion singer, but need to fat­ten it up with­out rack­ing up an­other ses­sion fee. Well, iZo­tope can help you out with their brand new free­bie, de­signed to de­liver dou­bled vo­cals in a jiffy.

Imag­i­na­tively (!) named Vo­cal Dou­bler, it does just what the name sug­gests, providing a du­pli­cate vo­cal from an in­com­ing sig­nal. Said du­pli­cate can then be tweaked to per­fec­tion us­ing an in­tu­itive in­ter­face not un­like that seen on many of iZo­tope’s re­cently re­vised plu­g­ins.

Op­er­a­tion is sim­ple: drag up or down on the cen­tral han­dle to shorten or lengthen stereo sep­a­ra­tion, and ro­tate the same han­dle clock­wise to dial in “nat­u­ral, hu­man­like vari­a­tion”. There’s also an Amount knob to con­trol the wet/dry bal­ance be­tween the orig­i­nal sig­nal and the copy, plus a tog­gle to solo just the ef­fected voice. That’s pretty much it – all you need to whip up pro­fes­sional-sound­ing vo­cal dou­bles.

With the third ver­sion of their Nec­tar vo­cal suite just out (see p10), iZo­tope clearly mean busi­ness when it comes to voicemix­ing ef­fects, so it’s a real treat that they’ve of­fered this use­ful dou­bler for free. izo­tope.com
