Berkley Integrated Audio Software, Inc. ("BIAS") debuted PitchCraft EZ, an alternative to the popular pitch correction and special effects tool.
PitchCraft EZ says it minimizes the learning curve typically associated with advanced solutions at higher price points. Rather than dominating the user interface with analysis graphs and a plethora of parameters, PitchCraft EZ maximizes accessibility with a greatly streamlined — and highly attractive “sports car red” interface, they say.
Applications beyond music
While many will acquire PitchCraft EZ for musical applications, the additional transposition and formant controls can be employed by sound designers for creating “alien” sounding voices, “chipmunks”, and other more bizarre-sounding special effects. Video and filmmakers can also employ PitchCraft EZ to help disguise a subject’s voice in cases where anonymity is preferred.
Major Plug-in Host Compatibility
PitchCraft EZ is an audio plug-in designed for every major plug-in host for Mac and PC. The roster includes Peak (VST/Audio Units), Pro Tools (RTAS/AS) Logic/SoundTrack/GarageBand/Digital Performer (Audio Units), Nuendo/Cubase/Sonar/SoundForge/Audition/Premiere/Vegas (VST), and other compatible hosts.
Pricing & Availability
PitchCraft EZ is scheduled for release in Q4 2009 and BIAS is now accepting pre-orders through the worldwide network of authorized BIAS resellers and distributors as well as directly from BIAS at an introductory suggested retail price of $99 US. The standard edition of PitchCraft is currently available for $149 US and is also included with the Master Perfection Suite ($599 US).
