I've been using the Mercury bundle for half a year or so now, and it's been awesome. I've never experienced a single crash or issue with any of these plugins, including this one. No matter how many plugins I tend to load, my machine still keeps chugging along. The plugin itself is cross platform compatible, so nearly anybody can use this on his or her favorite machine. Personally, I'm a Mac user, so I'm using OS X on a Mac Pro with Logic Pro. There is one issue that I've been having, however. For the OS X users out there, this plugin is a 32 bit plugin. That means that your DAW will need to utilize a special bridge application for this to work inside your 64 bit DAW. It's not a huge deal, but it can be a bit of a pain, depending on how your particular DAW handles the 32 bit conversion.
Most of the time, if I'm going to do a harmony, I just play the thing myself twice. One track will be the root, and the other will be something like the harmonized 3rd. I'm able to replicate something similar with this, but I actually prefer using this for a really cool detune effect on leads. It can create a really cool alternative to chorusing, and you get a very 80s feel without getting totally washed out. Detune is actually my go-to effect for leads at the moment, so I tend to use this plugin quite a bit.
I'm running the Waves Ltd. Ultra Pitch plug-in currently on my home system. I'm running Pro Tools 9 on a Mac Book Pro computer that has 4 GB of RAM and a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. It's definitely been enough for me to be able to run this plug-in without any issues on this system, using only minimal instances due to the nature of the plug-in. I think it would work well on any system where you're currently able to run other high quality plug-ins smoothly.
The Waves Ltd. Ultra Pitch is definitely one of the best tools out there for harmonizing and pitch shifting in the box. This is a tool for tuning vocals, really just for basic shifting. It's pretty simple to use and definitely has enough to keep you busy for a while. Between the six harmony bands, you should be able to layer on some pretty thick digital harmonies, or simply double up a lead vocal if need be. It's a nice plug-in to have but isn't one I would have bought as an individual. It's the kind of great plug-in that beefs up the value or any bundle as it's a great tool to have for anyone since you never know what is going to come up. If you have any Waves bundle, you probably have Ultra Pitch - check it out if you haven't already.
