Product Description

Manufacturer's Description
Like it or not, tuning vocals has become a big part of producing music. When we created Soundtoys PitchDoctor, we wanted a pitch correction tool that was more "auto" than what was out. We also wanted it to be as natural as possible, not robotic (Not that anything's wrong with being a robot.) Our plug-in is a smooth correction with a natural sound thanks to our formant correction mode that keeps out the "chipmunks". We also built in "Score Control", a unique way to tweak the tuning that is much more intuitive. Smooth, natural and easy the way tuning should be.

Minor Surgery
In automatic mode PitchDoctor will correct your vocal based on the scale you choose. The keyboard display will read out the pitches it sees so you can get an idea (In case your singer didn't have one) of where the pitch is really falling. You can choose a new scale or customize one to fit the tune. If you need a bit more help, nudge the sensitivity and listen again. With Formant correction on, PitchDoctor is virtually invisible. Like the singer actually sang in tune.

Score One for Soundtoys
Graphic editing can be daunting. We wanted to fix that. Enter Score Control. With Score Control you select the audio that needs to be tuned, and let PitchDoctor analyze it. PitchDoctor then writes the pitches into the automation of Pro Tools. Yep, all that info right there for you to edit with the same editing styles and tools you've been using. Need that C sharp to be a C? Just drag to down. Easy, and if you need to go back and adjust it again later, you don't have to dig up the original track and retune.

Formant what?
Formant is like the timbre or character of the voice. It's what makes a female voice be high in pitch without sounding like a munchkin or chipmunk. So why does it matter in a pitch corrector? In short, it makes sure that any pitch changes that happen stay in line with the timbre of the voice. Subtle? Maybe, but that's why it sounds more natural than other pitch correction tools. It's the kind of detail that has turned many professional engineers from auto tuners into pitch doctors.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
