Antares has announced Auto-Tune EFX3, an automatic pitch-correction plug-in with ultra-low latency for live performance and tracking, and with features such as auto-motion pattern generation. Auto-Tune EFX3 uses the same core technology as Auto-Tune 7, but adds new variable Retune Speed and Humanize (corrects short notes while preserving pitch variations in long notes) controls for more natural, realistic pitch correction. Built-in Auto-Motion Vocal Pattern Generation adds intricate musical patterns to a vocal performance. Auto-Tune EFX3 comes with a library of patterns and user patterns are easily added. Patterns may be synched to the host tempo at various beat divisions.
