unzipped it and copied it into program files 86, audacity, plugins. then edit preferences, effects rescan when restart. (I also put it in program files)
Duet appears in audacity effects, greyed out. I believe it is areal time voice harmonizer; I read that audacity doesn’t support real time plugins so probably not.
Its a vocal harmonizer that I want
I have no idea if it works with Audacity or not. Most commercial VSTs don’t “officially” support Audacity, but many (most?) will work. Audacity is listed as a “host” on the VST4free website.
For real time processing I’d recommend a hardware effects box, especially if you are performing live and you need something that’s going to work reliably with very little fuss. With a multitasking operating system you can end-up battling latency. …And, we all have “computer problems” every once in awhile.
I tried that VST in Windows XP (running in a virtual machine).
The effect shows up in the Audacity effect menu, it opens, it looks pretty, but it doesn’t do anything. As Gale wrote, this is probably because it is expecting live input.
GSnap does (mostly) work (but without the MIDI or real-time features).
Hi all, stupid newbie here with a probably equally stupid question.
Does anyone know if there are any harmonizer plugins or such that will work with pre-recorded accapella vocals? (Not instruments, just vocals.) I sing to pre-recorded tracks a lot (mostly in churches and also at home for fun), and am interested in a harmonizer to create background or harmony vocals. I know Audacity doesn’t do real-time processing so I wondered if I there was a plugin that existed for it. Hope this makes some sense.
I have tried it, but am not sure how to use it to create harmony vocals.
Additionally, since my last post, I also found autotalent and installed it. It does a fairly good job. Naturally, if you have to go too low to achieve the harmony you want, it will sound robotic. Are there any other harmonizers for Audacity?
If you want to use Autotalent you should work on duplicates of the original song then mix the tracks together. All extreme pitch changes sound robotic or distorted. If you reduce the gain on the most pitch-changed tracks you may be able to mask the distortion.
