Antares, makers of the iconic Auto-Tune, launches a new vocal effect subscription service called Auto-Tune Unlimited. The move sees the plug-in maker joining the subscription trend, which is undoubtedly beneficial for developers wanting to keep the lights on and helpful for producers that don’t have $400 upfront to pay for Auto-Tune Pro.
Auto-Tune Unlimited comprises 16 plug-ins from Antares, though four of them are the various versions of Auto-Tune: Pro, Artist, EFX+ and Access. Auto-Tune EFX+ adds multi-effects and a melodic pattern generator for more creative effects; the Artist variant is optimised for live performances, while Auto-Tune Access is the most basic but is CPU-light.
The other effects included are taken from the Antares Avox bundle and include
Auto-Key – Faster Auto-Tune workflow with automatic key and scale detection
Aspire – Control breathiness in vocals
Articulator – Digital talkbox
Choir – Vocal multiplier
Duo – Vocal doubler
Harmony Engine – Automatic harmony generator
Mic Mod – Microphone modelling
Mutator – Extreme processor for special vocal effects and sound design
Punch – Intuitive vocal compressor with overload protection
Sybil – Variable frequency de-esser
Throat – Physical modelling voice designer
Warm – Simulated vintage tube saturation
The Auto-Tune Unlimited subscription also includes unlimited upgrades for included plug-ins, VIP customer support, training resources and free access to specific plug-ins that Antares releases in the future. There’s no word on what those new plug-ins might be yet.
Auto-Tune Unlimited costs $24.99 per month or $249 when paid annually. 14-day trials are available. Find out more at antarestech.com.
