Optimized for Pro Tools and included in Auto-Tune Unlimited
Antares Audio Technologies has announced Auto-Tune Hybrid, a brand new edition of Auto-Tune created exclusively for use with Avid Pro Tools platforms. They tell us that Hybrid is optimized to take advantage of Avid's DSP-based hardware, giving Pro Tools users more processing power and delivering the ultimate Auto-Tune experience. Hybrid also works on native systems when Pro Tools users aren't using DSP-based hardware. Antares says that this makes Hybrid perfect for everything from mixing on a laptop to using Auto-Tune in real time in both the studio and live performances.
Steve Berkley, CEO of Antares, told us, "We're thrilled to offer Auto-Tune Hybrid to the Pro Tools community. Auto-Tune Hybrid delivers the features and performance professional mixers, producers, and engineers need to be successful in today's studio and live environments. It's designed to make the most of Avid's hardware and boost performance in key moments, whether it's laying down tracks or perfecting a performance in real time. Combining our technology so seamlessly gives music-makers the professional tools they need to be successful in their musical endeavors."
François Quereuil, Director of Product Management at Avid, had this to say, "Antares's unmistakable products have helped raise the quality of countless vocal recordings and given artists, producers, and engineers the confidence and creative options to realize their artistic vision. By working together to integrate Auto-Tune technology and Avid's hardware we've unlocked even more potential. Together we're now offering a complete set of professional effects designed to take vocal production to a whole new level."
