User interface for Waves OVox Vocal ReSynthesis plugin

Waves Audio has released an update of its OVox Vocal ReSynthesis plugin, now with a new MIDI Out feature, NKS compatibility with Native Instruments controllers, SoundGrid real-time compatibility and hundreds of new presets.

More details from Waves (www.waves.com):

Update features include:

  • MIDI Out in real time (including Voice-to-MIDI)
  • SoundGrid-compatible for real-time performance
  • NKS-ready for NI Komplete Kontrol and Maschine
  • 250 presets added, including 150 artist presets

OVox’s new MIDI Out feature enables you to play any virtual instrument (either by Waves or other manufacturers) using your voice, in real time. Whether you sing or hum melodies, OVox will convert your voice to MIDI, then send the MIDI out to the other instrument. You can also use the Note Mapper to quantize your MIDI to scale or generate hundreds of chord progressions easily. You can even route the other instrument as a carrier back to OVox, and then use OVox’s formant filter to modulate the other instrument. This strengthens OVox’s standing as the world’s most robust and feature-rich vocal synthesis tool for 2020, with even more creative vocal synthesis and sound design possibilities than ever before.

The new OVox update also adds 250 new presets, including 150 artist-presets from the music producers of Bon Iver, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Cardi B, and many more. In addition, the new updated OVox is NKS-ready for Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol and Maschine, and is now SoundGrid-compatible for real-time performance with a SoundGrid system.

Waves OVox is the next-generation voice-controlled synthesizer and vocal effects processor, powered by Waves’ Organic ReSynthesis technology. Use OVox as a plugin or standalone app to transform any vocal: Create rich vocoder, talkbox, harmonizer, pitch/tune, vocal arpeggiation effects and beyond, with superior sound quality and instant results.

OVox’s workflow is instant, with none of the difficult routing typical of other vocoders and vocal synthesizers. Just insert OVox as a plugin, or fire it up as a standalone app – sing, hum, speak or beatbox into it, and hear the magic happen. You can experiment and discover unique results with OVox on drums, bass and other instruments. It’s also an amazing sounding synth in its own right, even when not triggered by vocals or other external sounds.

Whether you’re a producer, musician or engineer, Waves OVox Vocal ReSynthesis enables an unprecedented palette of vocal synthesis and vocal morphing creativity.
